“FALL SEVEN TIMES GET UP EIGHT”, This is what life is all about. Its a precious gift of God but precious things always carried hardships with them, they are never easy to handle, they always need careful handling. Allah has given the control of human life in their own hands, now its all upon us how do we move forward in this journey.
Its a universal rule along with the blessings there is always a small package attached which is called Hardship in short when the Lord of the worlds wants to bless His favorite ones he sends blessings in disguise and those are called Hardships. Now its all upon us how do we carry and handle the hardships, some people face them like cowards and their selves get erased from the world as if they never existed and some face them like warriors that their names get written in the books of gold and the universe remember them until its existence.
If we want to conquer the world we have to work hard as the key to success is hard work. There is no shortcut, there is no ease. Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship. We have to keep moving, growing, learning no matter what the circumstances are. To start something we have to be committed and to finish it up, consistency is needed. There is no start without commitment and more importantly, there is no finish without consistency. That doesn’t matter if the journey was successful or not but it is important to start and finish the things up to get the success in life because between every start and finish lines there are lessons to be learned. If we don’t take a step forward and start something with commitment we won’t get courage in life and if we don’t get to the finish line with consistency we won’t learn anything to get to the success one day, we will be left in between those start and finish lines forever with no motive, no objective.
It’s not easy, If it would be easy there would have been no Mark Zuckerberg, no Einstein, no Newton, no Nelson Mandela. So we have to keep working, keep striving to touch the skies of success. That’s why it is said, “Fall seven times get up eight BUT NEVER GIVE UP”.
