Life knocks us down, and we get back up. For some of us getting back up is easier than for others. Sometimes the knock down is so hard, it can seem like a TKO (total knock out). I can’t speak for you, but I certainly have experienced some knock downs in life that I thought I’d never be able to get back up from. I’ve also learned to use these knock downs as motivation to get up and be better than before I fell. It is often when are at our lowest that we see things the clearest, that we realize the urgency of the hustle, that we recognize the significance of a relationship, etc.
“When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up. Let your reason get you back up.” -Les Brown

While knock downs are difficult, which can make it easy to just lay there in agony, your life and the world will be better for your taking a bad situation and turning it into motivation! Whether it be a job loss, an unexpected debt, a shift in self-esteem, the demise of a relationship, detrimental abuse, or something else, you can recover. You can overcome. You can be strong. You can tackle the obstacles. Don’t wait on the world around you, motivate yourself!
