My Challenge to You

Please read the above quote from Theodore Roosevelt. I have read this quote often throughout my adult life. It comes from a man that really lived life. He took risks. He did many different things in his life and was able to accomplish many great things in his life. He is my 2nd all time favorite President. To me this quote reminds me that the important thing is to always get in the arena, roll up your sleeves, and just get dirty.

This is where I my permission to fail attitude approach comes from. Just as the quote reads, it is not the critic that matters, it is the person in the arena that is doing what needs to be done, regardless of making mistakes, regardless of taking chances, regardless of not always knowing the outcomes. It is going the extra mile and doing the right thing even if the right thing is not the popular decision.

What do you think about when you read the quote? How does it make you feel? I challenge you to fail while daring greatly in the classroom. You just might surprise yourself on how successful you really can be when you continue to take risks.

Think. Achieve. Succeed.
