The key to still winning the race after falling is to not spend that one second while falling considering staying down. It is the one second you have to strategize launching back up to create a life story.
When you fall your mind has three ways it can spend that one second of falling. You can:
1) not think about it
2) think an empowering thought
but don’t 3) think about staying down…or even consider it if you want to win.
There is still time for a comeback when you fall.
