Are You A Champion?

"A champion is someone who gets up when he can't."
-Jack Dempsey

Most of us out there would love to be considered a champion for something we've done or accomplished. The fact of the matter is, however, that most of us will not be handed the title of "champion" by others. But even if you don't win the SuperBowl, get a gold medal, or come first in a marathon, you can still be a champion!
How many times in life do we hit the brick wall, feeling like we can't move forward? Whether it's at work, school, household chores, or in a personal relationship, we have those moments where we feel we can't move forward. Do you remember my post on being a Success or Failure? (if not, you may want to check it out!) While we may give up for a little bit, or feel like we've failed, when we stand up and keep fighting to go forward, that's where success is. THAT is a CHAMPION. I think we all need to be challenged on our ideas of success or failure, which is why I wrote the blog post that I linked above. It's a good reminder to keep moving forward in life. 

What I'd like to know:
Do you consider yourself a success or a failure? 
Have you ever felt like you can't get up? How did you motivate yourself to continue to fight?
