It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done 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 and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows 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 know neither victory nor defeat.
Theodore Roosevelt – From a speech given in Paris at the Sorbonne in 1910
I read this quote one of the first things in the morning and it rang true with me. I asked myself why this was? The answer to this helped me find out a lot more about how I tick. In fact it made me take instant action and I did one thing that I had been holding back on.
I share this quote with you and I hope you are really really inspired by it. And if you are it will give you a great insight into your mind if you can answer that question. Also I don’t really have to explain the meaning of this quote, it is about getting out there and taking action!
Not for everyone though…
