“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.” Michael Jordan
The quote that caught my rye this morning is from someone who has experienced highs and lows. MJ is considered the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) basketball player. I remember watching him do things never seen before with such effortless grace. It was easy to believe that everything always turned out well for him.
I didn’t know that his father was murdered at the height of his career. I can’t imagine how traumatic that must have been for anyone, let alone such a public figure.
Regardless of triumph or tragedy, MJ always lived up to his quote. He tried baseball, without success. He in-retired and showed why he was the GOAT. MJ tried his hand at business and marketing and became even more successful.
All these thing happened because he believed that trying produced results.
