Be assured, you’re going to thrive, and win! 2021 is still your miracle, it is still your gift!
How are you this lovely day? February has been a most intense and demanding month for me compared to the noises and posts about valentine I’ve seen left-right and center. It seems as though I’m not from this planet.Lol….Love is beautiful anyways. And more importantly, I am so joyed to have you in my world and as a part of my amazing tribe.
Today, I want to infuse a never-dying spirit in you because if indeed you must thrive, there’s a need to persevere, a need to develop a tough skin to stand resilient in the face of challenges. You either fight hard or go home!! The choice is always yours to take.
I know you’re probably familiar with the Japanese proverb Nana korobi ya oki” (literally: means fall seven times and get up eight. This speaks to the Japanese concept of resilience. Tribe, No matter how many times you get knocked down by life, you should get up again till you get the prize. Even if you should fall a million times, you just have to keep getting up and trying again.
Jacob and Samson’s story in the Bible is very intriguing to me. I mean these guys were exceptional despite their shortcomings. These duo didn’t give up even to the point of death. Their fighting spirit was on a high scale. They fell but determined to rise again. Jacob wrestled with an angel till he had a change of name. Samson on the other side did not allow his fall to determine his end. He prayed to God and he was empowered with strength. It was recorded that Samson killed more Philistines than he ever did when he was on his feet. Regardless of how ugly their plots might look, they chose to rise from their fall. That’s beautiful and epic for me. If they could, you can rise many times in your numerous falls, my dear.
Here is my fall and rise story- it’s really funny how many times I kept going back to sit for JOINT ADMISSION MATRICULATION BOARD EXAM(JAMB) till I eventually wrote the fourth one that got me into the university. Those years weren’t my best year but I’m grateful to God for all the strength He allowed me to amassed in those periods to persevere till I got what I wanted.
They say that in times of crisis people show their true character. Anyone can be cooperative, patient, and understanding when things are going well and life is good. But it is the resilient man or woman who can behave with grace and compassion and even kindness when times are very, very bad. Don’t give up too soon. Most times when you do, you’re just a step away from greatness. Resiliency is a virtue we all must strive to possess.
Fall seven times, stand up eight.” It is choosing to never give up hope and to always strive for more. It means that your focus isn’t on the reality in front of you, but on a greater vision that may not be a reality yet.
Nana korobi, ya Oki. Fall seven times, stand up eight. Today, we celebrate standing up again. Cheers to your uprising🥂
Whatever keeps taking you back to the ground and maybe sapped out the strength in you. Today, I challenge you to rise and fight so hard till it no longer has a grip on you. If it’s addictions, you can rise again to a healthy state. If it’s a failure, you can rise again to write a success story. Whatever your fall, you can rise again. Don’t retire but perspire until you get your desire.
