I Can Get Up! | Note 135
If you get knocked down, you can get back up.
Closing out the week, I wanted to offer a powerful quote from the late great legendary poet Maya Angelou that was highlighted in the book “It Always Seems Impossible Until It’s Done.”: Motivation for Dreamers & Doers.
Today’s Note: I Can Get Up!
“We may encounter many defeats, but we must not be defeated. It may even be necessary to encounter the defeat, so that we can know who we are. So that we can see, oh, that happened, and I rose. I did get knocked down flat in front of the whole world, and I rose. I didn’t run away – I rose right where I’d been knocked down. And then that’s how you get to know yourself. You say, hmm, I can get up! I have enough of life in me to make somebody jealous enough to want to knock me down. I have so much courage in me that I have the effrontery, the incredible gall to stand up. That’s it.” ― Maya Angelou
