Ring Leader Mug
She climbs through the ropes and steps into the ring. Apprehensive. Exposed. She can hear the whispers from the crowd in the stands: “Who does she think she is?”
Courageously, she puts one foot in front of the other, striding into the spotlight, head held high. Her heart is pounding in her throat, but she marches on.
She knows exactly who she is.
As she puts on her boxing gloves, she reminds herself that she is not here on a power trip – she is here on a spirit-filled mission of purpose.
She doesn’t fight against. She fights for.
For the downtrodden.
For the voiceless.
For the dreamers.
She fights for freedom, and she is not alone. As she stands in the center of the ring, others begin to join her, those she has inspired and those who have inspired her, until the ring is full to bursting and the stands are empty. Together they will fight until they believe their dreams into reality, and they set the world on fire with their love.
"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, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows 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 fails while daring greatly.”
This Teddy Roosevelt quote was taken from "Daring Greatly" by Brene Brown
