“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall,”—Confucius.
There is no glory is not putting in an effort. When you fail to participate in a race, there won’t be any footprint of yours in the sand of time. There is no shame in falling; but there is a big problem when you fall and remain rooted to that spot.
Stop feeling or having self pity; get up, dust your boots and rejoin the race for the crown is there waiting to be taken.
You can fall as many times as possible—but do not give up on yourself.
