Why You Should Stand Up Today, Or Sit Forever

Stand up today. If you messed up yesterday, stand up today. Today is a day of opportunity. It is a day to make up for what you missed yesterday.

It is okay to fall down, but it is not okay to stay there. If you fall down, rest, think, plan, and keep moving. Don’t stay where you fell down. Don’t allow yourself to settle for less. You are bigger, greater, more intelligent than you think you are.

You will fall down. You will make mistakes. But don’t let them define who you are. You are greater, smarter, bigger, and better than what you think.

When you fall down, when you make mistakes, when you fail at something, take it as a time to think, and start again.

When you start again, try to not repeat the same mistakes again. DON’T MAKE IT A HABIT. Don’t worry about your mistakes. Worry about not doing anything to change your life. Worry about not growing in life. Worry about not doing what you are supposed to do to move forward. Those are the things you should spend your time thinking about.

As I said before, it is okay to fall. I fell before. I have done things that I am not proud of. Am I going to sit there and start crying? Hell, no!

For the fact that we are all learning, we are going to fall down from time to time. Our focus is not to stop us from falling, but to reduce how we fall. We are going to be making mistakes everyday. If you cannot make mistakes, take it or not, you cannot grow. You cannot learn. If you can make mistakes, then you can grow.

If you can fall, you can get back up. If you don’t fall, how can you learn how to stand back up? You must first fail to learn how to succeed. You must first fall to learn how to get back up. If you have not failed before, you won’t know what failure really means to you. It pains!

If you fell yesterday, start today.

If you failed yesterday, start today.

If you did not do well at something yesterday, try to do your best today.

Today matters.

Focus on what you are doing today, not what you did yesterday, and not even what you are going to do tomorrow.

Today matters.
