Falling down is not pleasant. It does, however, teach you how to get back up.

That’s an essential skill to have. After all, you can’t avoid all life’s misfortunes but you can position yourself to handle them with resilience.

There’s the potential for setbacks in every ambitious course of action. But those setbacks don’t have to be permanent catastrophes.

A well-developed resilience gives you the confidence to take on well-calculated risks. That gives you access to some of life’s most fulfilling rewards.

It’s important to keep safety in mind when you venture forth. But if you go to extremes to avoid all bad experiences you’ll also end up missing the good experiences.

Instead, take the knocks, the falls, the failures in stride. The more quickly and confidently you get back up, the more of life’s richness you’ll be able to know.

— Ralph Marston
