If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.

If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.
-H. G. Wells

Quote means that no matter how bad your situation, you should “stand up” and continue fighting.

Stand up  – the word itself is interesting. Do you know, that this very “stand” can be expressed in two different ways?

The first is stand up , which means to get onto your feet after falling down. The second is rise up , which means to raise yourself or something else upwards using your own power.

That being said, I’ve always liked this quote. It’s quite motivating and it’s great for life advice. Never give up!

You are not a looser

If you try something and it does not work, that does not make you a looser or failure. If you fall down, get up and run. If you stay right there on the floor, there is a problem. If you want to succeed in life, you can not do it without first falling down. You can not do anything good in life without running into trouble.

People generally tend to take things too seriously, but at the same time they also don’t take them seriously enough. This is often the reason for not being able to achieve their goals.

 Be ready to fail

You can’t win if you don’t play. So play and try and fail and give it another go. Just don’t give up before you even get started.

A life without problems is not a life worth living . Without challenges, we can never achieve self-growth and self-fulfillment. Our mind needs to be trained just like our body does in order for us to become stronger. You will not grow unless you change . You will not change unless you fail . You will not see your weaknesses until you are confronted with them.

It’s all about taking action.

Final thoughts

There is nothing wrong with falling down. Being able to stand up after taking a fall is the only indicator of true strength. So, what are you waiting for? Get up and do something today!
