“Fall seven times, stand up eight.” Japanese Proverb

Resilience is rising every time we fall, learning and growing each time.

This Japanese proverb captures the spirit of resilience in a simple yet powerful way. It conveys the idea that life will inevitably involve setbacks and failures, but resilience lies in our ability to get back up. Each time we rise, we gain more strength, wisdom, and courage. This process of falling and standing up again is fundamental to personal growth. It teaches us self-compassion, endurance, and the courage to face future challenges. The proverb inspires us to keep moving forward, regardless of how many times we might stumble along the way.
