“It’s not how many times you fall down. It’s how many times you get back up.”

“Fall down seven, Get up eight”  Japanese proverb.

We focus so much on always getting it right and when we stumble we believe we have failed and give up. The key is to continue and try over and over again. No matter how small it is or how far away it is, if you persist and get up and try again… you will reach your goal. This is what I am learning, a small bit at a time.

Maybe it is as simple as this… if we do not stumble and momentarily fail, then how will we know when we have succeeded?
