Every individual has a place to fill in the world and is important in some respect, whether he chooses to be so or not.

When you fall

When you fall, get back up. It may sound so simple as to be obvious, yet far too often it doesn’t happen. When you’ve strayed from the path, work your way back to it. It is not too late and it is always your best option.

Remember why you started the effort in the first place. Remember what is truly important in your life, and why you’re doing what you have chosen to do.

Being a victim has no real future, and helps no one. So do what it takes to get back up and get moving forward again. Sure, it is painful to fail. And the best thing you can do is to get beyond that pain as quickly as possible.

When you fall, get back up, quickly, with renewed determination, as often as it takes. And you will end up going exactly where you choose to go.

— Ralph Marston
