Another Good Quote

"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 and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, 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 he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

-Theodore Roosevelt


This quote is exactly where I'm at. I'm in the arena with many who criticize and mock but still have nothing to show for it. Sheer victory is what I'm after and fuels my everyday.

Winners vs. Losers

The Winner - is always part of the answer.

The Loser - is always part of the problem.

The Winner - always has a program.

The Loser - always has an excuse.

The Winner - says "Let me do it for you".

The Loser says "That's not my job".

The Winner - sees an answer for every problem.

The Loser - sees a problem for every answer.

The Winner - sees a green near every sand trap.

The Loser - sees two or three sand traps near every green.

The Winner - says "It may be difficult but it's possible".

The Loser - says "It may be possible but it's too difficult".

I love this because being a winner doesn't have to always be tied in to sports, it can be tied into life as well. You can be a winner at you school, at your job and even at home and with your family. Being a winner means to always strive for the prize, no matter the struggles no matter the problems and issues you may come across along the way. Winners are leaders but sometimes leaders aren't winners that why this means so much to me.
