Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight

“Fall down seven times, get up eight.” ~ Japanese Proverb

I love this simple yet powerful quote.

In my opinion this one simple sentence embodies the essence of how to live, win, and thrive.

Through the hardships I’ve endured in life, this quote has always been my North Star, my guiding light.

Japanese culture has much to offer in the way of wisdom. And I would recommend that anyone start with the aforementioned quote, as it eloquently describes the essence of not only historical Japanese culture, but also that of the human experience as well.

And if right now life has knocked you down, I advise you to get back on your feet, look at life straight in the eyes, and say “You hit like a bitch!”
