“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 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.”
What a GREAT outlook to start the New Year. While I am not one for making “resolutions”, I am always looking for ways to better myself and really, what can’t you gain from this? Digging in, putting your heart and soul into training, work, relationships with family and friends, or whatever it is that is important to you. While you may not succeed at everything, at least you will know that you gave your all, and with that, a sense of accomplishment will surely come.
I can’t take credit for finding this quote on my own. I started reading Daring Greatly by Brene Brown last night. While I’m just past the introduction, I can tell that this is a book I will greatly benefit from. Not just from a training standpoint, but from a personal standpoint. 2013 may just be the year for PR’s, for enhancing relationships, for succeeding professionally- when living life wholeheartedly and “daring greatly”- only you hold your own limitations :).
