A lot of times in my life I've felt like this guy, down and out for the count. Its true, life is going to knock us down sometimes. It's inevitable. Whether we choose to get up or not is up to us. I believe perseverance has always been an important quality of mine. It's a true test of character to fail at something and then decide if getting "back on the saddle" is worth it. Personally, I feel the people who can overlook disappointment or fear are the same ones that will eventually succeed.
