Michael Jordan has been a long time hero to me. Some interesting quotes from him:

  • “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.”
  • “I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come. I don’t do things half-heartedly. Because I know if I do, then I can expect half-hearted results.”
  • “If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.
  • “Even when I’m old and grey, I won’t be able to play it, but I’ll still love the game.”
  • “If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
  • “Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.”
