Videos under 'Getting back up after a fall'
A fall doesn't send us back to square one. We just need to get up, brush ourselves off and continue from where we left off!
Every coach is focused on how to win. Every athlete always focuses on how do I win the battle, how do I win the fight. I'd like to teach you how to lose. And the way you lose is you lose like a winner. What that means in plain, simple language is that I don't care how dedicated you are, I don't care how devoted you are, I don't care how intent you are at winning this fight, I guarantee you you're going to win some and lose some. That's just part of the game. That's just part of reality.
Coaches have a criterion to determine whether a girl has what it takes to be a world champion. And what they say is that criterion is how many times is a young woman willing to fall on the ice and get back up again.
No matter what has happened, there's always another chance.
We may all be somewhat broken, but it's after Yom Kippur now and Hashem has fixed us up. So what is more beautiful, a whole vessel or a vessel that has been broken and fixed? It all depends on your perspective.

When we are not looking where we're going in life, G-d sometimes brings us to fall just to WAKE US UP.
