InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

The focus for today's inspiration is:

If I fall (or fail), I get back up again.

The key to success in work and life is more than arriving in the world with our specific talents and abilities and expecting things to just work out—it’s about actually getting into the arena and doing the work. It’s about standing up and fighting hard, every day, for what we hope to achieve. It’s about struggling and failing. And then getting back up, again and again.

This journey of ups and downs, of wins and losses, is typical of what virtually every successful person has experienced. In researching successful individuals, I have learned that there’s no substitute for hard work and that even the most successful people in the world struggle with self-doubt.

We all face fatigue, discouragement and disappointment along the way. Every one of us has our own journey and learning curve.

Today's inspiration was excerpted from the article:
       Where We Hope to Be and What We Hope to Achieve
       Written by Peter Ruppert.
