You see, the farmer thought the mule was not worth saving when it fell into a well accidentally so he thought he would just put it out of its misery by burying it. Despite the farmer's best efforts to bury the mule shovel after shovel full, the mule resisted until it was able to climb out of the well on top of all the dirt that was thrown in after him. The mule, despite the fact it was initially in a deep well, would not give up. The mule simply shook the dirt off shovel by shovel never giving up the will to live, to climb out of the well.

1) the ability to analyze a problem and it's components;
2) the ability to utilize lateral thinking which means solving a problem by an indirect or creative approach typically through viewing the problem in a new and unusual light, and not by a step-by-step logical process;
3) the ability to take the initiative to work toward a resolution;
4) the ability to apply consistent logical reasoning with each step dependent on the last logical conclusion; and, 5) the ability to persevere to the final resolution without giving up.
