You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
Maya Angelou, poem Still I Rise

It’s like the boy who cried wolf—all those over-the-top Facebook titles that are meant to entice us. Daring us click and watch the video. “What this woman did at this end of this video will make your jaw drop and your entrails spill out.” But the below video of Heather Dorniden  really is exceptional, and is a great lesson on what to do  after you fall on your face.

File this one under “Who does that?”

“All great victories, be they in politics, business, art, or seduction, involved resolving vexing problems with potent cocktail of creativity, focus, and daring. When you have a goal, obstacles are actually teaching you how to get where you want to go—carving a path. ‘The Things which hurt,’ Benjamin Franklin wrote, ‘instruct.'”
