Getting Back Up

It happens: you fall and find yourself down on the ground. Setbacks, failures, surprises and disruptions can all create a fall. When you experience this, how do you get back up on your feet and start moving again?

Here are some things that have helped me get back up after a fall:

• Getting fully present to what has happened and figuring out where I am with it.

• Looking forward and not focusing too much on what has happened.

• Identifying the best things I can do to get back up.

• Finding a way to not get pushed right back down again.

The next time you fall, whether caused by your actions or those of others, have a strategy for getting back up. Brush yourself off and come back to the game.
