Critic and the Doer

"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, 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 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, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

President Thoedore Roosevelt, Citizenship in a Republic, Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

Powerful!

I am not here to say whether the ManKind Project will change you or make you a better man. I am not here to judge whether you are ready for change in your life? I am not here to be your wake up call to action.

I am here to share with you that the ManKind Project and the New Warrior Training Adventure have changed my life and made me a better man. I was ready for change in my life. I needed a wake up call to action.

I found it in this group of men; all types of sexual intentions, former addicts of all kinds and addicts in action, all colors and nationalities, all manner of religious and non-religious spirituality. I found it in a group of men that is so vast it is beyond compare.

You are one of those men, whether you know it or not. You are a man who can choose between the critic and the doer. What is your choice?


I'm out.
