Fall Seven Times and Stand up Eight

“Fall seven times and stand up eight.”
Japanese Proverb

fall down 7

When life knocks you down, it can be a humbling experience you register as failure.  I love the saying above because it is a reminder that people need to expand their focus beyond the moments when they “fall” to include the moments when they figure out how to stand back up.  You cannot learn anything in life without falling a few times.  It is only after you fall that you actually learn to get up.  Persist in getting back up a few times and you will eventually become more resilient.

Don’t give up!
