A Little Inspiration for Life

"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 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 and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for 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 he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

- Theodore Roosevelt April 23, 1910

These words by Theodore Roosevelt truly define the warrior spirit.  Whether in the competitive arena or in life, a true warrior will never back down.  Win, lose, or draw, people who have the courage to chase a dream deserve a measure of respect.  It is all too easy for others to criticize someone chasing a dream, but very few of these critics would ever have the courage to chase a dream themselves.  Victory and glory are great, but the true warriors in life are those who have tasted crushing defeat and are able to get back up again.  So whether it is work, life, love, or anything else, chase your dreams.  You are the warrior of your life.
