What Is Recover Strong?

What Does It Mean To Recover Strong?

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strongman 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.”
— "The Man In The Arena" Roosevelt Speech at the Sorbonne Paris, France April 23, 1910

Recover Strong is the arena, and it is also the man or woman who enters the arena. It is a place where brokenness is welcome and strength is discovered. Recover Strong is a mirror that does not allow the reflection to deceive itself.
