Fall down seven gets up Eight

Adapting Japanese proverb “Fall down seven gets up Eight” to life:


There are questions that almost every one of us has asked once or even more than this “How to leave the laziness”


Well, to put forward here laziness is not just a word it’s more than a feeling that is there to stay with you until you make some efforts to get rid of it. Nobody will be able to tell you how to move forward in life and the exact way to earn your life’s success story it is you who should be the one learning it in life and making efforts in the way. Let us justify this by an example:


There was a man from India who went to the UAE in hope of working hard and earning money. He was able to qualify for the job and he reached the airport where he was supposed to be picked up by his company’s co-worker but instead of his co-worker picking him up he was picked up by some other person who worked for a different agency. Before he could realize this he was dropped into the desert where he was asked to work as a camel caretaker. There was a man who was already working at the place and he taught him everything about taking care and feeding stuff.


Every day once people will come to collect the milk and they would bring the workers a can of water (they were given only one can for a day meaning they couldn’t take bath). He tried many times to tell them he is not the guy who was supposed to be working here but everyone ignored as they wanted a caretaker.


One day he tried to escape but was soon caught by his boss who then kicked him until he coughed blood this incident made him lose every bit of his hope and he continued to work as a caretaker.


Days passed and each day he would cry to sleep losing his hopes. Then one day his fellow worker passed away due to dehydration but nobody came to take away his body. He would sleep with sheep and camel along with the body of his fellow worker.


He noticed that people would come from the north direction every time and one day when the people came to deliver the water and food he waited for them to go a little far from his place of stay. He started to run in the same direction and at a point, he saw someone coming from the same direction in order to not get caught again he walked in other direction that made him lose his way.


He was in the middle of the dessert with no hope left in him but he gathered all that he had and walked for some while until he heard the noise of a vehicle. Somehow he managed to reach the road and was rescued by some people. Later he reached back home he could have left all the hopes and lived at that same place probably would have died at the same place but he fought against everything that was stopping him and reached his home.
