Everyone in Circus Town is busy preparing for the big show. Many of the performers are having lots of missteps and falls, and they start to get down on themselves. Ringmaster Rick sees the falling self-confidence and calls a meeting where he encourages the performers to not let their mistakes define them as a failure. He teaches them to think positive thoughts and be confident in their abilities. With persistence and self-confidence, they are able to keep working and put on a fantastic show!
