The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes...

Not 6' should I bother getting in shape?

I'm 5'9" and just don't really have motivation to get in shape. Even if I was in shape I'd still be short compared to guys 6' and plus. Is there a point in getting ripped or should I just accept that I'm a shorter guy and just focus on other things instead.
