 The Rise & Fall of Self.  We Evolve and Elevate into our greater self to achieve greatness or we fall and allow our self to accept stigma, failure or stereotypes we face every day.  Choose to R.I.S.E. above instead of accepting defeat. Our minds and spirits are so much greater than we realize. Speak it into existence and act upon it.
