I am not going to copy and paste this quote over from the webpage I have found it on,
I am going to rewrite the whole piece from scratch.
The Man in the Arena by Theodore Roosevelt.
“It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better…
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
WHO strives valiantly;
WHO comes short again and again,
Because there is no effort without error and short coming;
But who does actually strive to do the deeds;
Who knows great enthusiasms,
the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end triumph of high achievement,
and who at the worst,
if he fails,
at least fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Spoken by me…
I don’t know about you guys, but this quote gives me chills.
This quote gives me the power to help myself attempt all the daunting obstacles in my life.
This quote empowers me to embrace failure, and rebel against the regret of inaction.
I was hoping to share that with you.
