I just read a great quote and thought that this one quote was worth it’s very own post.
I have seen this one many times before, but I had another “aha” moment today.
Fear of failure can make you more alert and effective. “Feel the fear and do it anyway”. That is the title of a very good book by the way.
This is definitely a quote to ponder from Michael Jordan, one of the greatest players ever to hit the basketball courts. Talk about success traits and keys. This is one very big part of the puzzle.
“I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot . . . and missed. And I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why . . . I succeed.” — Michael Jordan
Now that gives a whole new meaning to this thought:
If at first you don’t succeed, then try, try again. Persist until you have what you want. Short, sweet, and tremendously effective. Don’t let fear of failure stop you.
