You are strolling down the street. Suddenly, you stumble. The next thing you see is the ground. You just fell down.
It happens to everybody, right?
We fall. We get up on our feet. We beat the dust off, and we go on. The pain subsides, then vanishes completely. Ok, we may end up with a scar; no big deal. The important thing is that we don’t stay down.
That’s a place we don’t belong to. And we know it with every fiber of our being.
When we fall, we do exactly what we are supposed to do – we get up. In situations like these, we don’t mull over it. We act on instinct.
In life, we fall too. More often than not, we gather ourselves and get up. You know what, you (including me), are going to fall time and again. The question is not “Am I going to fall?“. The real question is “When I’m going to fall?“.
The law of gravity is invisible, but it’s also inexorable.
When we hit the ground, we may feel sorry for ourselves; we may start telling stories about how unfair life is; we may blame our bad luck; we may allow the inner critic to convince us we are no good.
That’s only an option. There are other options too.
We may turn our face upwards and see the beautiful sky. The blue ocean is always there. Just look up and you’ll see it.
What a sight?
So, what you are going to do when you fall again?
