Man in the Arena
Who are your critics? Why are you listening to them? Their opinion doesn’t count. It is those of you who are trying, setting the bar higher, reaching and growing for more, that are actually “daring greatly”. This is the way we should live. Set your intentions on what you want, and be confident in the chase, without letting others who are “looking on” discount or discourage you. Remind yourself of this as often as you need to.
“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." -Theodore Roosevelt
