When You Fall, Get Back Up

“Life swings like a pendulum backward and forward between pain and boredom.”-

Arthur Schopenhauer

Life is all about falling down and getting back up. It is okay when we fall down, but when you fall down, don’t stay there. Don’t make it your home. It is not your home. When you fall down, rejoice! Be happy. Be glad. It means you are trying to change your position. It means that you want to leave where you are now to somewhere better. It means you are tired of doing the same old things that are not giving you what you want. It means you are tied of hanging out with negative people. It means you want to go chase your dreams. It means you know that there are better days ahead of you. Wow!

“We learn by making mistakes. We learn by falling down. We learn by being ourselves.”

You should celebrate yourself for falling down. It is a sign of progress. If you continue to fall down and get up, you will continue to grow. That is how explorers learn how to explore the world. They start with one step at a time. We learn by making mistakes. We learn to get better by taking risks. If you don’t fall, you can’t learn how to walk. If you don’t fall, you won’t know how to get up. If you don’t fall, you will not know what it means to fall.

Life is all about falling down. If you don’t want to fall, if you don’t want to fail, you don’t want to grow. Growth comes from failing. Real growth comes from falling. Real growth comes from making mistakes and learning from them. Real growth brings happiness. If we are not falling, we are not growing. If we are not failing, it means we are not doing enough. Whatever it is you want to do, just do it. Don’t be afraid of falling. You can’t rise if you don’t fall down.

“Never stop trying. Never stop doing. Never stop loving your life. Never stop loving your work.”

Falling is a part of life. Many people are not successful because they don’t want to fall. They don’t want to fail. They don’t want people to laugh at them. If you really want to change your life, you must be in love with making mistakes and learning from your mistakes. More mistakes, more experiences. The more mistakes you make, the more you will continue to discover in life. Never stop failing forward. Never stop trying. Never stop doing. Never stop loving what you do. Keep falling forward!

We all want to live a peaceful life- a life without stress. But is that really possible? If it is possible, how can we achieve it?

The answers to the above questions are in our own hands, in our thoughts, and in our actions.

We can enjoy our lives if we can accept the fact that there is NO stress-free life. It is not possible. But what we can do is to learn how to live and manage our problems. We can do that. It is simple. To do that, let us explore the following strategies:

Spend time with the right people. We love our friends. We want to be with our friends. But the question is, “Are they the right friends?”

Be happy with what you have. If you don’t stop complaining about what is missing, you will never see what is present. Learn to let go of what is holding you back, and open your door to what will take you to the next level- your dreams.

Respect yourself and others. Respect other people. Respect yourself. Value who you are, not who you are not. The more you respect yourself, the more you will feel good about yourself. It is good for your health.

Love. A loving heart knows no hate. Love is fearless. Love can conquer all things. Where there is love, there is life. If you want to live a peaceful life, love is the way.

Laugh. Laugh at yourself everyday! It frees up your mind. Do not be too big to laugh at yourself. Marla Cilley says, “Laugh everyday, even if it’s at yourself!”

Discipline yourself. If you lack discipline, you will find it difficult to live a peaceful life. Jim Rohn said, “Every discipline, or lack of one, affects every other discipline.” In order to live a peaceful life, you must discipline yourself. Stay away from things that are against your values. Live your own life.
