“Seven times down, eight times up.”~Chinese Proverb
Proverbs are short sentences built from long experience. But the real question here is: How do we motivate ourselves to keep getting back up?
Let me tell you what works for me. Probably the most important thing that helps me pick myself up off the ground is my vision. I “see” myself succeeding. I “see” myself turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones.
And just as importantly, I “see” myself making the naysayers scratch their heads and think to themselves, “How in the world does he keep getting back up?”
