Teddy Roosevelt on leading the way

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

After he’d already served as governor of New York, published more than a dozen books, served two terms as president of the United States and won the Nobel Peace Prize, Theodore Roosevelt said these words about leadership:

“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 who is actually in the arena, whose 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 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 he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
