It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, 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 short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows 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 know neither victory nor defeat.

~Theodore Roosevelt

Sidenote: Get it? It’s not what the world thinks of you. It’s what you think of yourself. It is YOU doing the very best that you can to do something. It is YOU trying…and trying all over again. So what if you fail! Albert Einstein tried 10,000 times until he got the light bulb right. Imagine if he had given up. When you do something, do it to the best of your ability.
