I am a sucker for these video montages, and while this video is pretty cool, it was the title of it that caught my eye.


It’s your ability to get back up when you are knocked down.

But is it something you either have or you don’t, or can you develop resiliency?

I say resiliency is something that can be nurtured, developed and strengthened.


When you have a big enough reason why to get back up, you won’t stay down.

When you have a purpose that drives you, you won’t stay down.

When your reason is bigger than your doubts, you won’t stay down.

Sometimes you get saved by the bell, but usually it’s just a choice we make.

I get up, or I don’t.

It’s my choice.
