Learning Life's Greatest Lesson

Learning Life's Greatest Lesson

"And all you have to do to win, is rise each time you fall."

This simple truth comes from the poem-turned-book The Race: Life's Greatest Lesson by Dee Groberg, describing a boy's determination in a running race. Sometimes, that key ingredient to winning is picking yourself up after falling. That second chance brings with it a determination to take an honest look at what went wrong, and do it right the second, third, and however many times it takes to succeed. After all, as Laurence Shames said, "Success and failure. We think of them as opposites, but they're really not. They're companions – the hero and the sidekick."
