Playing softball last night, I came up to bat with two runners on base with two outs. I ended up grounding out to end the game. We lost by one run. Honestly, I was really bummed about it. I felt like I let my team down and didn’t get a hit when it mattered the most.


One of my favorite athletes of all time is Michael Jordan. I distinctively remember watching highlights of watching him hit game winning shots. But he missed a lot too. In need of some motivation, I googled Michael Jordan quotes.

Here are some of the best Michael Jordan quotes…

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.

I’ve never been afraid to fail.

I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.


Thanks, MJ. I officially cannot wait to be in that situation again. Bring it.
