Failure is not getting knocked down. Failure is getting knocked down and not getting back up.

When reaching for your Brass Ring, if it is worth anything at all, it is a given that there will be formidable obstacles. Some of these obstacles may be more than any you have ever faced before.

Remind yourself that you are capable of doing more than you think you can. When knocked down, get back up with more resolve, and keep moving toward your Brass Ring. Get back up and move forward like your life, and the life of those that trust in you depends on it.
