You are strong. You are powerful.

If life has knocked you down, smile and get back up. When life knocks you down again, smile and get back up.

You can face job loss, financial loss, health problems, depression, and everything else life will through at you, because you get to make the choice to get back up. You know that life is going to throw problems your way, so you don't pretend it won't. You face them head first, and get back up.

You won't keep beating yourself up over past decisions. You will learn from them. You will not give up, you will not give in, you will choose to get back up.

Even though you know it is easier to lay on the ground, to worry for yourself, to feel like a victim, to look around for someone to complain to, to look for someone to show you pity, that is not what you will do. You might scream, you might cry, you might hurt, and you might be in pain, but you will not stay there on the ground.

You will roll over and look at the beauty of the sky, the clouds, the sun, and the stars, then you will nod to yourself, smile, and get back up.

You will rise. You will get back up. And You. Will. Succeed!

    Thanks for the awesome post, Warren! I like the above part especially. No matter what hardships we face, we have the choice to get back up. There's no denying that there are those who experience awful things and suffer severe knockbacks, but we cannot change what's happened to us in the past. However, we have a choice as to how we proceed from then on. We can let the past shape what we will be, or we can choose to take control and shape our future into how we want it to be

    Life puts some rocks in our way, but we have to collect them to build a like a house of knowledge.
    Every problem that we have faced before taught us something important.
    We have to think about the positive aspect of every situation.

    Win or lose, it's all a mental game. If we believe we have the power to get back up every time we get knocked down, we will have the power. It helps to be very clear about our purpose and our goals. Whenever I get knocked down ... and especially when I just don't feel like getting back up ... I focus on why I do what I do and that helps me to draw on the power necessary to get back up and on my feet again.

      Well written motivational post Warren, from a fellow Coloradoan. Although this post was written over 1.5 years ago it is ageless because the message of not giving up never gets old.

    Sometimes all it takes is the proclivity to jolt up and create a ripple effect...that is to shift gears and move along. Change your daily ritual and never stop testing what works for you. Do you have a clearly defined goal to steer your energy at before calling it quits? Start testing in tiny increments what works best for you and soon enough you'll have more beef in your plate than you have ever imagined.
