The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena. You have two choices in life. Choice one: Participate. Choice two: Spectate. You can attack life, you can chase after your goals, dreams, and aspirations. Or, you can sit back and allow life to pass you by. Allow your goals, dreams, and aspirations to fade, and eventually die out. I don’t want the latter. I fear the latter. I don’t want to be associated with the majority, the normal. Associated with those who waste their life. I want to be a man who is constantly in the arena. Constantly pursuing the difficult, the hard, those things my mind and body resist. I want to be a man in pursuit of his dreams. A man who captures his dreams. A man who fulfills his dreams. I want to be a man who uses the gifts, talents, and abilities he has been given. I want to use them to challenge others, strengthen others, and lead others. I don’t know what tomorrow may bring. I don’t know what this next week may bring. I don’t know where I will be in a year from now. But TODAY, I WILL be a man in the arena. TODAY, I WILL be a participant in this game called life. TODAY, I WILL attack my fears, my worries, my anxieties. I WILL pursue my goals, dreams, and aspirations. TODAY, I choose to be different. I choose to enter into the arena. TODAY, I choose to be a man, in the arena of life!
