Self-awareness is key
The human spirit has always been strong, nothing can affect it; however, the unruly one, the one that needs our full attention, is the mind. Too many things can alter the mind and bring it down, to the point that we start believing we are not capable, or worth it, or even deserving of any love and happiness.
But look at your life, minus the troubles and anxiety your mind creates. There you find your source for strength. Self-awareness is this exercise I’ve mentioned, when you stop using your mind so much and stop accepting whatever thought pops up in there.
You get up the eighth time by becoming aware of yourself. “The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.” ~ Paulo Coelho.
One reply on “Get up 8 times”
Reminds me of Edison’s quote about finding ways not to make a lightbulb.
