Japanese Proverb on Perseverance

Fall seven times. Get up eight – Japanese proverb

You propose an idea at the team meeting and it falls flat. You ask for a raise and don’t receive it. You pitch for a deal and don’t land it. You ask your kid to clean their room and find it undone. You submit a guest blog inquiry and get a rejection. You notice an interesting profile on LinkedIn and send an invite that is unanswered. You watch your carbs all week and the scale still does not budget.

Obstacles abound both professionally and personally. What is the eighth thing you will try?
