Get back up

This one, short, sweet and to the point.

Question - do you need to get up again?

Come on then, lets go!

Need a hand up? Of Course! That's called being human.

Who can help you back on your feet?

We all fall off the Horse. That's part of the learning process.

Just (repeatedly) get back up.

Nothing wrong with that. It's part of the deal.


Between rounds a boxer has someone in their corner there for them. Who is person or peeps for you?

On falling down here is Professor Duckworth describes it through Grit:

“Grit depends on a different kind of hope. It rests on the expectation that our own efforts can improve our future. ‘I have a feeling tomorrow will be better’ is different from ‘I resolve to make tomorrow better.’ The hope that gritty people have has nothing to do with luck and everything to do with getting up again.”

~ Angela Duckworth

You see. There is it again, getting back up like a gritty person.

Come on then...lets get back up/backup
