“Fall seven times, stand up eight.”

Undaunted perseverance is greatly admired in Japan (and elsewhere). As the Japanese like to say, gambatte kudasai, which roughly means ‘keep trying,’ one understands that effort and perseverance are highly valued qualities. The whole culture is an exchange of encouragement and effort. That’s a great thing for getting things done right. We do love those that try to put positive energy into the world. So, like the saying goes, “get back on the horse (that bucked you)”. We cn find the exact same spirit is here.
