Daring Greatly


Daring Greatly
“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.”

- Theodor Roosevelt

This past Saturday, members of the No Boundaries community got together to exercise their mental muscles. The first gathering of the NoBo Book Club was full of stimulating conversation around Brené Brown’s book Daring Greatly. This has been a great avenue for us to think about how we can take what we do in the gym and apply those principles to other areas in our lives. Being able to explore this question together allowed us to laugh, commiserate, and share our unique perspectives about how we can continue to “dare greatly,” both inside and outside the gym, and how we can support each other in those efforts.

What makes the No Boundaries community so incredible is the people who form it. Hearing those who attended share their stories and thoughts was a powerful reminder of just how awesome a community we have, and how much we all have to offer.

I hope you’ll be able to join us at the next meeting, scheduled for May 19th! Even if you come just to listen, I am certain you’ll come away with something valuable.

Or, at the very least, you’ll get to enjoy some tasty snacks, good wine, and great company.
