Monday Morning Quote

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 in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly...who knows the 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 have never know neither victory nor defeat.

-Theodore Rooselvelt

Pretty insightful don't you think?

Quit stopping yourself from what you know you want to do; from what you want to accomplish. Take chances. Play the game. Step up to the podium. Let the world know who you are.

And in doing that....the Ripples will come and they will be abundantly rewarding.

Ripple On!!!

Steve-

This is one of my favorite quotes! It is true when you try to do things out of the ordinary (not like the rest of the people) that many naysayers and critics will appear. But you are an example of one who just marches forward and keeps doing! Keep up the good work. It is the way you, Steve, start ripples that help others that will change the world...not the guy on the sideline who mocks your efforts!! I bet you will do something for someone today that will impact them, (safe bet cuz you do that every day!)
