"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 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 up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for 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 knew neither victory nor defeat."

I took this from Geoff Neupert's Blog. It is one of my favorite all time quotes. So much so that we put it in the front of our book "The Revolution Kettlebell Fat Loss Program."

Excellent quote, Franz. So very true, too. I don't mind failing if I am attempting something great, but, then again....I don't like to fail. :)

Thanks Pete. It really is something to read daily as it puts proper perspective on our goals and the level in which we strive for excellence!
