If you are a sports fan, you must have heard already about the great Tiger Woods or maybe about the Basketball legend Michael Jordan.
Michael had a career spanning about 18 years were he collected numerous merits and awards such as 6 NBA Championships, 13 Playoffs, 14 All-Star Games, 5 time season MVP, 6 time Finals MVP, and the list goes on and on!
Jordan was a very hard worker, during his early years his father said the one problem he had was a competition problem, he always was trying to beat himself. This resulted on Michael being one of the best basketball players ever!
What is it to learn about Michael?
You as a future athlete might want to grab any expertise this sporting giant has to offer! One of the best Michael Jordan quotes is “I can accept failure. Everyone fails at something. I can’t accept not trying.”
This is the kind of mindset that nurtures champions; you perhaps can argue that if Michael had the mental drive of the average teenager nowadays in his infancy, you wouldn’t have even heard of him.
Michael understood that failure is one of the best teachers out there. You must understand the value of what this means; defeat doesn’t give you a green light to give up to your dream. What it brings to you, as harsh as it is, is the information on what you need to improve or work on to overcome that challenge you are facing, whether it is a tough golf course, a swing change, a specific shot, breaking 80 or 70, etc.
Michael new there was no obstacle too big for him, do you?
