Image result for falling down in the boxing ring

 Failing your exam, your business, your project, your job may cause you enough to think that you have been defeated in life. Falling time and time again in your quest to your dream and vision is enough to feel beaten. However, Feeling defeated is just the state of mind and not the reality.  Sometimes our mind tricks us that we fall, we fail, we have been beaten. However that is not always the case, failure and defeat can be only determined if you make it your last chapter. We only fail when we have accepted that circumstances is the final journey. It is not by falling that we are defeated, it is only when we did not get back up.

Failure is not falling down, but staying down

Harvey Mackay

Life is similar to boxing game. Defeat is not declared when you are down; It is declared when you refused to get up. 


When you may down right now, always tell yourself this, I am getting back up. I may be down but not out. Your opponent may think that they got the advantage over you when you are down but each time you rises up again, your opponent will be frighten. In a boxing movie called Rocky, Rocky also explains a similar thing about life saying that ‘In the boxing ring of life, it is not how hard you can hit, but how many times you get hit and keep moving forward’.

The key here is to always remind yourself that in whatever circumstances, you may be down badly, but you are not out. In your boxing ring, there is another round to fight on, In your book, there is always another chapter, In life, there is always another day. Each round, each chapter, each day, you are always moving closer towards your destiny, goals and dream. Get up and Keep moving forward.
