This is a speech given by Theodore Roosevelt and I hope you guys my friends at MMAF will read this and apply it to your life. This principle of the strenuous life
stays true to everything you do. Think about this and apply it every day in your training, school, job, or just being a good friend or family member.
The following is an abstract.
I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of toil and effort, of labor and strife; to preach that highest form of success which comes, not to the man who desires mere easy peace, but to the man who does not shrink from danger, from hardship, or from bitter toil, and who out of these wins the splendid ultimate triumph.
