If you’ve never read The Alchemist by Paul Coelho, you’re missing out. Of many favorite quotes from his book, this is definitely in the top 10. It’s probably something you’ve heard before, but I think it’s worth reminding. In the end, the people who live the best lives are those who stand up more times then they are knocked down. No matter what happens to you, you should always keep standing back up. Dealing with life shouldn’t make you a victim, it should build your character.
So this is a reminder for you today. If you feel like you’ve been knocked down time after time, keep standing back up. Pull the strength from deep inside yourself to get yourself back on your feet. Trust me, nothing good will come from sitting on the ground.
