Living Life as the One in the Arena
- “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 CCM have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose work 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, The Man in the Arena Speech
“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.”
There will always be people on the sidelines who have never stepped foot on the field, played the game, or fought the fight – all eager to share their opinions and call out the risk-takers for their stumbles. It will always be easier to point out what others do wrong than to show up and do something yourself. The takeaway here is simple. Those voices from the sidelines and the cheap seats don’t matter. Until someone has stepped into the battle or onto the field, their opinion is meaningless to the one in the arena.
The goal is simple… Step into the arena and dare greatly.
The rest will take care of itself.
