Daring GREATLY by Theodore Roosevelt
“It’s 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.”
As a business owner, sometimes you are marred by dust, sweat and blood and you have to get back up and do it again tomorrow and the next day. There are so many critics available, the ones who talk about how someone is an overnight success or why you won’t be able to make your business or idea work, but that critic is not the one who counts. He is not “in the ring” with you.
Find the people who will get in the arena with you, to help you fight another day. Let them know you need them to support you because you know you are going to get bloody, but when you look around, you need to know they are standing there in the ring with you to clean you up and send you out to do it all over again!
Stay strong, my friends, get in the arena by becoming part of a community who supports you through your challenges and celebrates your victories! IGS is working hard to become that place for you and your business. We have all the pieces in place for the business, now we simply need the perfect space for our shared workspace in Brandon.
