It’s true that we learn how to walk by falling down. Or isn’t it that we learn to ride bicycles by falling down? If we fear falling down, we probably can’t learn to walk or ride a bicycle.
In a similar way, we shouldn’t let the possibility of failure stop us from doing what we really want to do. Realize that we will still fail if we remain inactive.
Not every day is the same. Life is not linear and there will always be ups and downs. There will always be challenges in our lives. It is how we handle those challenges that determine who we are.
It does not matter if you fall down, what matters most is that you get back up and continue. It is impossible to accomplish something significant in one go. Even learning to walk or ride a bicycle involves falling, not just once, but several times.
It comes down to confidence in the end. That is what gives us the courage to keep moving forward despite obstacles and setbacks. Confidence is a result of discipline, preparation, and experience. The more challenges you face, the better you become at coping with them.
