Tale Weaver 26.08.21 – It’s Not About Falling…

Stephanie Colpron is the host of Tale Weaver

So to our Tale Weaver Theme; It’s not how you fall it’s how you get back up…

This week I invite you to share a tale of resilience, of falling and getting back up to see the story through; it might be a grand quest or a project at work or at home… Yours to decide.

➰➰➰

The challenges life throws at us often unbalance us and we are close to giving up and throwing in the towel. But being a quitter is not the way to overcome hurdles.

Don’t lose heart when the chips don’t fall your way

When Lady Luck seems offended at you, ignores you


*It’s the fighter who falls in the battle


*Not the bystander who never ventured in the fray


Get back up after every fall for you are no quitter


The biggest loser is the one who never tried

➰➰➰

(I have paraphrased a couplet from famous Urdu poet, Alama Iqbal; Girte hein shahsawar hi maidan-e-jung me
Wo tifl kea gere jo ghutno ke bal chale”
It means that only the fighters fall from their horse in a battle, not an infant who walks on his knees!)

  1. Such great wisdom! I appreciate you sharing the Urdu quotes. Yes victory comes to those who stand and fight (or fight from their horses) I am reminded of a famous quote:
    “Better to die on one’s feet than to live on one’s knees”
    Great inspirational share and wisdom as well Sadje. Thank you.
