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
I think pretty much everybody agree that Michael Jordan was a phenomenal athlete, and an extremely successful one as well. We should all try and be like Michael. Not because we should all try and be first class athletes. That’s a nice dream, but we can’t all do that, there’d be nobody to watch if we were all playing 🙂 No we should all adopt his attitude of trying and failing. Michael Jordan wasn’t afraid to try and he wasn’t afraid of failing. He let go of the fear of failing and it helped him to succeed.
That’s pretty amazing. When you think about it, some of his biggest failures were on national television and live in front of thousands of fans. His lack of fear of failing led him to keep trying and trying, and as a result, having more and more success. Imagine what your like if you would allow yourself to be like Michael? Just go out there and try without any fear of failure. What would you accomplish? Really the sky is the limit. So be like Michael and don’t let your fear of failure stopping you from succeeding.
