GET BACK UP…I know you hear me! GET BACK UP!
Have you had one of those days? Want to get back in bed? Did you even get out of bed? Are you looking for the deepest hole to hide? Why do you have an overwhelming desire to crawl into the fetal position?
Well, it’s a bad day…maybe a really, really bad day! But please do NOT make it a bad week, bad month, or bad year.
GET BACK UP! CHIN UP! PICK YOUR PRIDE UP WITH YOU! TAKE ONE, TWO, THREE STEPS FORWARD.
Some of the most incredible stories I have ever heard started with the fall, the loss, the big fat F! But each and everyone one of those “feel good” stories direct us back to the BOUNCE BACK! Exactly what we want to know about…how do you dig deep and have that “BOUNCE BACK ABILITY.”
Too many times, I’ve gotten caught up in the failing (and I mean failing hard) to recover mid-fail. Wow, what a concept…RECOVER MID-FAIL! How can we do it? Look, if i knew exactly how this would probably be a book and not a blog. Best I can say at this point is; RECOGNIZE IT’S A GET A STOP (G.A.S.) MOMENT. Not recognizing it because its the final possession of the game, but recognizing it at the 7:00 minute mark. It is a gift of experience to see it before it hits you.
All I know for sure is that bouncing is hard to do while you are on the floor. Try it! It’s HARD! Put a little pep in your step, a little flow in your Joe! Stick and move!
