October 2018 HTSAAIL of the Month: Michael Jordan
Our October HTSAAIL of the month is Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan is one of the most well known athletes around the world. From Chicago Bull championships in the 1990s to a Jordan brand that brings in over $1 billion a year, Michael Jordan has overcome many failures and obstacles to succeed.
Instead of repeating his biography that many of us have heard and read over time, we will share some of his best quotes that exemplify FAIL. TRY AGAIN. SUCCEED.
“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.”
“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.”
“My father used to say that it's never too late to do anything you wanted to do. And he said, 'You never know what you can accomplish until you try.”
“Sometimes, things may not go your way, but the effort should be there every single night.
“If you quit once it becomes a habit. Never quit.”
“I've always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.”
Would Michael Jordan be known as MJ around the world if he quit after not making the varsity basketball team as a sophomore in high school?
Would Michael Jordan hit that game winning shot in the playoffs if he said to himself “I’ve missed thousands of shots in my career, I will probably miss this one too, let me pass the ball to my teammate instead.”
Be like Mike everyday. Take your shots, miss, but keep going back up for the shot until you finally score that game winning shot.
FAIL. TRY AGAIN. SUCCEED.
