Dare to ACT

Dare to ACT

by Michael Feeley October 6, 2020


ACT on living your best life.

Take action and go after what you want for your life. What you desire and long for. The special dream – goals – ambitions. What is your dream?

ASK for what you want. You know that place in yourself and in the world where your dream exists. Don’t be aloof.
Don’t observe from the sidelines. Don’t be cold and timid. Actively stand up and standout. Seek out opportunities and
take them. And – create your opportunities to thrive.

Get into the arena. Take your laps. Act and play at what you love. You’re allowed to live your life the way you want and dream about so take action and make things happen.

TRY – Do not be afraid to try because if you don’t try you’ll live with regret for the rest of your life. That’s what I mean by – Dare to ACT. Live without the – “I Should Have…”

Use your courage. You have it. Be bold. Take risks. ACT so you can be proud of trying – doing – achieving.

Blood – sweat – and tears are involved in the hard work you must do to be victorious and happy with your life.

Keep coming with love and effort and joy and positive energy and commitment because you and your dreams matter.
Never give up.

These words from President Teddy Roosevelt’s 1910 Paris speech – The Man in the Arena – express me and honor what I feel and the choices I make to live the life I want with integrity and pride. I’m 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.”
