Life can/will sometimes knock you down. It's up to you to either bounce back up or remain where you are knocked down. But, I urge you as ever, don't/never get stuck on where you've fallen. Rather, strive by all means to get back up to your feet. Because, you will hardly make headway until you resolve to get up from your ashes of downfall/failure.

Life cannot be measured by summary statistics, such as the money accumulated in the banks, or the shares acquired in the stock market, or the number of real estates owned etc. In my view, the only valuable metric that would quantify your life most accurately is the number of lives you were able to help selflessly, and influence most positively. The true purpose of human life is very noble IMHO....always above and beyond mere metrics of materialistic matters.
