Xendurance Presents: Words to Live by with Josh Bridges

March 07, 2016

Here’s your Monday Motivation with Josh Bridges, courtesy of Xendurance. Listen to Josh Bridges dramatically quote Teddy Roosevelt while doing some extreme fitness things and stuff…


Former Navy Seal and CrossFit games athlete Josh Bridges has always been inspired and motivated by Theadore Roosevelt’s speech “The Man In The Arena”

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.
