Mastery takes years

Getting back up. Some of the stunts we saw were pretty amazing, and mistakes were made. Even the pros miss now and then. What I really appreciated about the performance was that when they made a mistake, they went back and did it again. The audience LOVED it. One of the stunts was the men jumping or diving through a vertical hoop. It got knocked over and they just put it back up and kept going. They then raised it and went again, and again. They had that hoop up as high as some of their shoulders and they were still launching themselves through it. It’s good to remember that sometimes we get knocked down, and what matters most is getting back up. We may even be cheered on.
