Do not judge me by my success, Judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.

If you or someone you know is stressed, anxious, sad, or down. If things have not gone your way, this quote by Nelson Mandela reminds and inspires us to stay strong. In the face of adversity get back up and have success again.

REFLECT: In past, what did you do when you fell, failed, or when things didn’t work out?
RESPOND: What will you do next time you fall, when things are not working out?
INTEGRATE: Any time in future, if future worries you and you are anxious. You and many others have persistence, determination and strength to get back up. So Relax that you will make it through.

Do not judge me by my success, Judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.
