Fall Down Three Times But Get Up Four

January 11, 2012

Mr. “B”
was in this AM for his weekly weigh in and medication check.  Mr. “B” is living the “Wellthy” lifestyle.  Over the last year, his diet has improved remarkably, his exercise routine has become a permanent way of life, and he has given up his last vice.  Mr. “B” survived the Christmas/New Year eating orgy and is looking forward to a happy and healthy new year!

During today’s visit, I gave Mr. “B” a present/reward for maintaining his healthy habits for one year.  Today, I reduced Mr. “B’s” insulin, his blood pressure meds, and his cholesterol meds!  Mr. “B” gave me a present, as well.

Mr. “B” has been the source of many of my articles; and today, Mr. “B” gave me one more.  “My daddy always told me, ‘Fall down three times but get up four.’”  Mr. “B’s” road to success has not been easy.  He has worked hard on defining and refining himself and has fallen on several occasions.  Each time he has fallen, he has gotten back up, dusted himself off, and gone back to work on “being all that you can be.”

So, when your New Year’s resolutions start to falter, when you start to fall, remember, “Fall down three times but get up four!”  Mr. “B” likes to share his wellth with others.  Share your success with others.  When you see someone fall, help him up, dust him off and teach him “B’s” lesson.  When you fall down, get up immediately and go back to work at being “all that you can be!”
