The art of falling? Oh, you didn’t know there was one.
Well here, when you fall and hit the ground, it’s good to know how to land. Let’s take pro wrestling as an example. The wrestlers are trained to learn how to hit the floor or mat, to lessen the impact on their bodies.
So today, I want you to learn how to fall. Now, we’re not talking about literally falling, but figuratively.
We have two choices when we fall. Either stay down or get back up. When you fall, it sucks. Sometimes it may even sting. But refuse to stay down there. Don’t let gravity keep you down. Make sure that you get up, rise up.
People and things are going to try to keep you down. Some people are so unhappy with their own lives that they are going to try to bring you down with them. Let them be them.
I’ll keep it real with you. I’ve failed, quite a few times. I’ll probably fail again. But you know what? I got right back up. Things didn’t always work out the way I wanted them to. They didn’t go how I envisioned. I failed in the process of getting my business off the ground. I’ve failed with ideas I thought were great, only to see them flop.
But I got right back up. I persevered. And that perseverance led to success. It led to victory. It lead to getting said business off the ground. I’m not where I want to be and my business is not a finished product yet, but I JUST KEEP GOING. That’s how you overcome a fall. You stand up, brush that dust off your shoulder, and keep on going.
My challenge to you is this: that idea, that dream that you went after and you fell, I want you to go back to that place. Pick yourself up, and try again. Many great ideas weren’t birthed the first time around. Some of the great novels weren’t published by the first publisher the author took it to. Some great novels were rejected seven, eight times.
So keep going, keep trying. When you fall, get right back up. No one is going to feel sorry for you. They are going to step right over you and keep going. So my friend, are you going to accept the challenge? When you fall, are you going to get back up?
