Hard work relieves Bullock cart Story Quote Meaning

The rain gods had been pouring the entire evening. The roads had been muddy as well as the potholes have been filled with loamy and clay soil making it tough for the vehicles to move on. It was the day for the village market and Mike the farmer was riding his cart along this road. He had to go to the weekly market early so that he can sell his produce he grew by working hard the week before. It was hard work for the bullocks to drag the load through the deep mud.

On his journey abruptly the wheels from the bullock cart sank into a hole which had clayey soil beneath. The bullocks worked hard and pulled gathering all its strength; the deeper the wheel went under. Mike climbed down from his seat and stood beside his cart. He searched for help but couldn’t come across anyone nearby to assist him. Cursing his luck, he looked dejected and defeated. He didn’t make the slightest effort to get down on the wheel and lift it up by himself. Rather he began cursing his luck for what occurred. Seeking up in the sky, he started shouting at God, “I am so unlucky! Why has this occurred to me? Oh God, come down to assist me.”
Soon after some waiting, God ultimately appeared ahead of Mike. He asked Mike, “Do you feel it is possible to move the chariot by basically taking a look at it and thinking about it in your mind? No one can help you unless you do some work to assist yourself. Did you attempt to have the wheel out in the pothole by yourself? Get up and place your shoulder to the wheel and  you will quickly find the way out.”

Mike was ashamed of himself that he did not do any work and was simply seeking help from trespassers. He bent down and place his shoulder for the wheel and urged around the bullocks. He worked little hard and in no time the wheel was out from the ditch. Mike learnt his lesson. He thanked God and carried on his journey happily.

People who procrastinate are not interested in doing the work if it is very hard. They are under the assumption that a field can be ploughed by just working out in their mind. They are not ready to get up and do the hard work by themselves. Author Gordon B. Hinckley emphasizes the importance of working hard with humor.
