“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan
What did it take to become arguably one of the best basketball success stories of all time? Apparently, a lot of fails. And the willingness to get back up and try again. And again!
Michael Jordan knew something most of his fans did not when he was racking up unbelievable stats over his basketball career. And that is all the the failed shots he had to take to get to the big ones we all remember so well.
One might be forgiven for thinking every time he touched the ball, magic happened. I guess that’s why they call them highlight reels, after all.
