Power & Value in Action
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, who's 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 deviations, 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
while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory not defeat.
No one could have expressed the spirit of 'Value in Action' better than Theodore Roosevelt.
In the arena of human life, the honours and rewards fall to those who show their good qualities in action. Aristotle deeply believed in action. For purposes of action, nothing is more useful than narrowness of thought combined with the energy of will.
This is what a true and effective leader believes in and contributes directly to the success of the enterprise.
The world belongs to the man of Action.
