Prov. 24:16 - "For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again,..."
I will be equating the "righteous man" as the successful person. A study of Proverbs will reveal the righteous ones are successful ones because they have been blessed by God.
It may have been an illness, a medical set back such as a torn ACL, a rejection of your resume, failure to accomplish a set goal or the death of a loved one. There are thousands of ways to get knocked down but if we intend on being successful we know we must arise.
We must get back up on our own two feet.
Are you one that is able to motivate yourself? Or are you the kind who will graciously allow others to help motivate you?
It doesn't matter which method works for you. What matters is the successful person will get back up and move forward with another plan and a new head full of ideas.
Every time you get knocked down by life you get back up on you feet.
If you ask "Why" you may never be able to determine if the answers you come up with are true.
If you're knocked down get back up and you'll be glad you did.
If you are on your successful journey plan on meeting some events that will knock you down and also plan on getting back up once you have been knocked down by the life events.
Every successful person gets back up after life knocks them down.
So be successful get back up every time life knocks you down, and you will be glad you did.
Think About These:
The difficulties of life are to make us better - not bitter.
Say what you will about trouble; it always gives us something to talk about.
