“It’s not whether you get knocked down that matters – it’s whether you get back up.” – Vince Lombardi
Life is hard… with many (many, many, many) unexpected twists, turns, pitfalls, crevices, and cliffs, and you will fall or get knocked down from time to time. The question that
we you have to ask and answer for yourself is How Long Will It Take You To Decide To Get Back Up Again? Once you do decide to pick yourself back up, it’s likely that you’ll have to swallow your pride, bring in some friends to help (and possibly console) you, and start moving forward again.
Life Experience (Old Guy) Note: My girls, it may be tempting to try to pick yourself by your bootstraps – to go at it alone, but I’m here to tell you that the recovery process and chances that you won’t fall or get knocked down again in a similar way is way better, if you’ll swallow your pride and get some help – professionally and/or from friends.
Challenge Question: How quickly do you get back up?
