Inspirational Quotes

I love good quotes. I learn from them. They inspire me. They move me. I’ve been collecting good quotes for years.

However, there are two great quotes that always manage to inspire when I am about to do something challenging.

They sum up nicely both the way I try to live my life and the way I work as a coach.


“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.”.



Most of us try to avoid mountains, but what is so good about that? Think about it: flat tyres, flat hair, flat returns and – the ultimate – flat lining. Life happens on mountains.

They’re opportunities to prove to yourself that you’re stronger than you ever imagined. If you never attempt the ascent, you’ll never know the thrill of swooshing down the other side

(You can see where the name Dare Greatly Coaching and the tag line “Dare Greatly! Be a Mountain Seeker!” came from? Right?)
