Stand Tall


Life is not about how many times you fall, but how many times you can get up and stand tall.


I have seen my fair share of failures.  Moreover, I predict future failures in my life.  Of course, I have plans, goals, optimism, determination, drive, passion, persistence, etc.  But, who knows what the future holds?

We Fall Down


It’s hard to be sure of anything in life, other than life’s unpredictable nature.  However, the one thing we can be sure of in this life is failure.

Failure doesn’t make you a bad person.  It shouldn’t make you feel lesser of a person.  Failure is what it is, a learning experience.  You’ll be surprise how many people experienced many failures before getting even a little taste success.

No matter how you look at it, at some point we all will fall.

Get Back Up


You will fall, but it’s your choice whether you will get back up or not.  Before you can even think about standing tall, you just need to get back up.

Life isn’t about how many times you fall, but how many times you get back up.  If you fall 50 times, just make sure you get up 51 times.  It may not be an easy decision to make, but you have to make up in your mind to get back up.  No one else can make this decision for you.

The one difference between those who are successful and unsuccessful is getting back up.  The successful people in our world aren’t afraid to get back up.  Getting back up means you’re not afraid to give yourself a second chance.

Stand Tall


You have found the strength to get back up, now it’s time to stand tall.  Standing tall is discovering confidence within to take greater risk and accept various opportunities to progress your life.  If you want to set yourself apart from 80-90% of people, then you have to discover the ability to stand tall.

Standing tall means smiling when it is more convenient to frown.  It is being patient and waiting when you really are pushed for time.  Standing tall is taking a risk to Go The Extra Mile (click link).
