I've Fallen...But I'm Getting Back Up!!!
If you're like me, there have probably been times in your life when you felt like giving up. Maybe there have been times when you tried and tried to accomplish something and were met with failure. And maybe it seems that no matter what you do to try to get ahead, something always drags you backwards. You may think the saying, "One step forward and two steps back" might always apply to your life. The truth is that all of use have probably felt like this at one time or another. I honestly believe that when times get rough, it is our perspective on any given situation that makes the difference on whether we let that situation get the best of us, or whether we rise above that situation and use that experience to learn and grow as a human being. In today's society, we have it constantly ingrained in our consciousness that failure is a terrible thing.We need to be honest with ourselves and accept the fact that failure is a part of life. But the thing is...without failure, we can never have success!! There are countless stories of successful people who failed many times. The difference that separates those successful people from those who don't experience success is the willingness to learn from their failures and rise above their failings. The ability to accept failure and learn from it requires a fair amount of humbleness, dedication and a never say die attitude. In order to rise up above failure to achieve success, you can't let your failings keep you down. You have to get up, dust yourself off and keep going! Success doesn't come easy...but then again life isn't easy. Take your failures and turn them around keep getting up!!!
