The battlegrounds. Where there can only be one winner and one loser. Whether you win or lose, it takes a lot of mental strength & a lot of balls to get in there. It's easy to criticise fighters who put it on the line every time they fight but people don't see the sacrifice. The sweat, the blood & the tears that go into the whole process, putting your pride on the line all the time. The next time you decide to criticise a professional on what they do for a living, take a step back & think about what that person has done to get to where they are today. This quote is definitely one of the greatest of all time.
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, who comes short again and again, 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, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. - Theodore Roosevelt #ufcsydney #qudosarena #ufc #ufcfightnight #mma #sacrifice #stoleyourquotekalil #jiujitsu #theassassin #jiujitsulifestyle #cage #boomerang #nov19 #australiantopteam #att
