“Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear…” I have to admit to being terrified, but as I seem to be a living, breathing motivational meme these days, I have decided to feel the fear and do it anyway.
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, 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 know neither victory nor defeat…
What can I say! That’s a quote from Theodore Roosevelt and brought to my attention by Brene Brown. If you haven’t heard of her, look her up.
