“If you sign up to be brave…..you’re going to fall.” – Brene’ Brown
If you want to do great things – you’re going to fall.
You’re going to fail.
Your foibles and frailties and finicky fragilities will be exposed to the world.
People will laugh. They’ll say “I told you so.” They’ll tell you to shrink your story in the service of a more ordinary, and pedestrian path.
If there is any one simple lesson that every one who aspires to do great things ought to understand – is that learning to rise – after you’ve tripped and been kicked – is the sweetest skill of them all.
So master this. Believe in something bigger than yourself. And keep doing what You do best 🙂
“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, 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
