Fall Down and Get Up!

Share with your friends on Facebook

There is an old story about an Italian peasant who bumped into a monk who lived in a monastery high on the hill. 

The peasant seized the opportunity to question the monk about their daily routines at this holy shrine. “What do you men of God do up there on the mountain so close to God?” she asked. 

The monk replied, “We fall down and we get up, we fall down and we get up, we fall down and we get up.”

Failure is not our ultimate enemy any more than success is our ultimate goal.

Think of a time when something caused YOU to “have a fall” and YOU got up and continued on. 

THE MINUTE YOU STOP TRYING TO CONTROL EVERYTHING IS THE MINUTE GOD CAN LEAD YOU DOWN THE RIGHT PATH!
