Monday Morning Motivation

Posted by Picasa
My competition is 5 days away, and I want to give credit to all of my hard working friends out there, those competing with me, and those competing against themselves as they work hard to improve every single day.

I don't see it as an end, but a start. A start of a new chapter. How long or short this chapter will be is unknown to me.

“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
