Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight

Failing is a natural part of any dream worth pursuing. Part of the fulfillment and joy of the journey is pushing yourself beyond what you are capable of. But that also means you’ll fail. And you’ll fail a lot.

Nana korobi, ya oki is a Japanese proverb that translates to fall 7 times, get up 8. It embodies the spirit of perseverance, persistence, and resilience necessary for any journey.

I fell a few times this year. One I’m still getting back up from. But from these failures I learned where I need to grow, I learned humility, and I learned more about myself.
