Excerpt from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic", delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910
"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."
I know that my place will never be with those "cold and timid souls."
How about you?

- Keep an open mind
- Believe in right principles
- Speak up
- Keep faith with God and Family
- Trust in yourself and your abilities
I will be exploring each of these in future posts as I work through the details in real life. I view the upcoming weeks as an experiment in my ability to exhibit true leadership by trying to understand each of these in context and build something synergistically within my chosen work and my life. Hopefully, there will be things to share with you that may provide help and insight into your struggles as well.
