“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
Michael Jordan was basketball, and basketball was Michael Jordan. He went from being a star to being a NBA superstar. When people believed he could go no higher, he transcended sports altogether and became a international icon. To many, he was simply GOAT, the Greatest Of All Time.
Every kid on a playground playing basketball wanted to be like Mike.
Michael was not a basketball prodigy. To most people who knew him growing up, Michael was just a goofy kid who liked to play basketball. He wasn’t the most popular kid at school and the older boys often made fun of Michael for sticking out his tongue during ball games. In fact, Michael Jordan learned how to iron his own clothes because he thought he would never get a girlfriend
His life is composed of a series of obstacles, each of which he turned into an evolutionary step.
With each step he discarded another weakness, and picked up another strength, eventually becoming the Michael Jordan that we all know.
His life is a story of challenge, of struggle, and of ultimate triumph.
Like Mike, you too can be great.
