It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up. (Vince Lombardi, famed football coach)

Chinese philosopher Confucius put it this way, “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” Like a toddler learning to walk, who jumps back up when he/she falls, so are successful adults who take an occasional spill in their work or relationships. “Getting back on the horse,” they say, is the way to overcome the fear of falling. Perhaps someone can help.

If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. (Ecclesiastes 4:10)
