It doesn't matter how many times you fall down. What's important is how many times you get up! I don't know who said that originally, it may have been Sun Tsu or Confucius, or Dale Carnegie, or Napoleon Hill or W. Clement Stone or Wayne Dyer, or even George Carlin. In point of fact, they all probably said it at one point in some form. Whatever the task and whatever the journey, it is not going to be accomplished without some pitfalls and roadblocks. If you are the mythical journey of a thousand miles and you stumble after five miles, you have gone five miles. If you get up and go another three miles before you stumble again, you are three miles farther than you would have been had you not gotten up. Take your journey or your task and break in down into smaller components and accomplish these components in order and you will be constantly moving toward the culmination of your journey. Remember, any movement toward completion is success.
When you fall down, get up!
