Fall Down Seven, Get Up Eight in Japanese is 七転八起 which is read nana korobi ya oki. The Japanese phrase nana korobi ya oki meaning "Fall Down Seven, Get Up Eight" is composed of the kanji 七 (read nana) meaning "seven", 転 (read korobi) meaning "to fall", 八 (read ya) meaning "eight", and 起 (read oki) meaning "to get up". This popular Japanese phrase speaks to the importance of getting back up despite repeated failures and to keep on going despite setbacks.
In Even Monkeys Fall from Trees: The Wit and Wisdom of Japanese Proverbs (Vol 1) by David Galef, the author equates this with the English saying "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again".
