This quote has always impressed me for its truth and simplicity. Michael Jordan was a legend of the game and an inspiration as a competitor.
"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty six 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."
