It’s Not the Critic Who CountsPublished May 2, 2017
We love this new video interpretation of Theodore Roosevelt’s Man in the Arena speech by Dr. Brené Brown. Enjoy.
Many of you know the quote from Theodore Roosevelt’s Man in the Arena speech. It came into my life when I was struggling and desperately needed a new frame to understand why courage matters more than criticism. It inspired me and the book title, “Daring Greatly.”
This video is just a few faces from our community. It’s my way of saying thank you.
When we choose contribution over criticism and courage over comfort, we can do anything!
Thank y’all for being brave.
