Teddy Roosevelt quote from “Man in the Arena”
“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.”
This morning and every morning in what we call the gloom you step into the arena with yourself mentally to get up and push through the workout. Then, when we show up, together we step into the arena. we grow stronger physically and as brothers. Today, you were challenged to partner up and it required you to push yourself to get around the track back to relieve your brother and carry on with your exercise.
If there’s one thing I have learned to live by in F3 so far, it is this motto: “Leave no man behind, but do not leave him where you found him.”
one of my favorite verses in the Bible gives some great advice related to this idea as well.
“but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
Isaiah 40:31 ESV
I leave you with the challenge to be a “man in the arena.”
