Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. – Theodore Roosevelt
This is my favourite quote ☀️. I will put it in my office so I see it every day. If you want to do non-standard things, you choose the difficult path above the riskless one. Many people don’t dare to, mainly because they are afraid about others’ opinions if they would fail or make that hard decision.
The famous ‘I told you…’. ‘You will not give up this beautiful job, will you?’ ‘Why would you do that?’ advice.
👉Once you live up to this quote, you only start taking advice from a few: those who understand this quote and live to it… You also start neglecting advice. Actually most of it.
👉Pay attention to the word ‘enjoy’. If you love your work, if you realise that struggling is inherently part of life, you are achieving exactly what is meant. So it’s not always rocket science. It’s about being happy because you found the reasons for it and know you are going the right direction.
