Assuming starting position is standing, how can you get up eight times whilst only falling down seven?

You can't get up from a standing position.

ahh I remember the saying now. "nana karobi ya oki" (sorry for crappy spelling that may not be right) my step-dad used to say it alot. but he'd say it like "seven times down, eight times up" I didn't know till years later it had to do with falling. I always just assumed it meant screw 7! 8 is better!

climb a ladder?

Or after falling and getting up 7 times, gently lower yourself to the ground instead of "falling", then get back up.

stand up for the first time (once up)
fall down get back up (once down twice up)
fall down get back uo (twice down 3 times up)
fall down get back up (3 times down 4 times up)
fall down get back up (4 times down 5 times up)
fall down get back up (5 times down 6 times up)
fall down get back up (6 times down 7 times up)
fall down get back up (7 times down 8 times up)

Of course you were born down, before you got up the first time. So overall you were down 8 times and up 8 times. But the saying is "if you fall down 7 times get up 8 times.
The first time down wasn't a fall.
If you fall down 7 timees and don't get up for the 8th time, it's all over.
