“It’s not whether or not you get knocked down, it’s whether or not you get back up” – Vince Lombardi
Failure is always an option. You will always have up and downs during your training, and your mentality and your perseverance will determine whether or not you can turn that failure into success. Getting knocked down is part of the process, but the only option you should put on the table when you get knocked down is to get back up and keep going. Sometimes it will feel like you are taking 1 step forward and 10 steps back. This is when you shouldn’t be afraid to keep taking that 1 step despite the outcome. No matter how long it takes or how many times you find yourself on the ground, keep getting back up, and never stop moving forward.
