Nanakorobi Yaoki Thu, Aug 10, 2017
七転び八起き (nanakorobi yaoki) is a Japanese proverb that translates to fall down seven times stand up eight. Failing at something is not necessarily a bad thing. It forces us to grow and try things that are out of our comfort zones that we wouldn't have thought of otherwise. Often times, people take failure as an absolute extreme. If one has never failed anything in his or her life, then how are they ever going to learn humility and learn from their mistakes? If you fall, learn to get back up. If you fall down this time, learn to fall forward the next.
