The Man in the Arena

”it is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; who’s 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 the best, in the end knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, fails while at least daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat”

whatever your arena is, it’s yours. Own it. Because in the end no mans criticism, complaint, mockery or blasphemy makes you take action, that rests solely  on your shoulders. Make your actions worthy of, the action. Letting the voices of dissent take hold only locks you up. We can’t spring into action, focus on our craft, or better ourselves for ourselves and our families if we are constantly and consistently holding onto past transgressions. You put your feet in front of you, one step at a time, you put the effort in, you fight your fight and stand in your arena not by anyone else’s decision but your own. Take pride in your efforts and constantly seek to consistently get better.
Loved seeing the PAX’s will to drive on.
