CPSM Certification Journey – Quote of Success

CPSM Certification journey is not easy. A person must have extensive experience, education, and the willingness to undergo an examination process that thoroughly tests a persons ability to comprehend and apply the supply management concepts.

Below is a quote from President Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, we share with people who participate in the CPSM Boot Camp:

Man in the Arena

One of the top three most requested quotes is that regarding the “man in the arena” or “not the critic”

“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 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 and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for 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 he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
