Are You One Of Great Daring?

I ran across this inspirational message today. The type that revitalizes my energy toward the work that I do and strive to do. My work requires many lessons of self and endurance of growth by error and setbacks, but my purpose is strong and therefore I’m compelled to continue on my path. And sometimes, I get tired and weary…so when a great reminder comes along I love it, welcome it and have to share it with someone.

So here it is. (And Women, I know you know by now that wordings of old requires us to add “woman, her, she,” etc. where needed, because they just didn’t know what was about to happen back then.) OK? : )

THE MAN IN THE ARENA
Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In A Republic” delivered by Theodore Roosevelt at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910

“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 errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; 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 the 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.”

(Got this from listening to one of Brendon Burchard’s videos.)
