Learning From Failure: Wisdom From Michael Jordan

Hola Todos!

I was reading Peter Gruber on LinkedIn and he hit on one of my favorite themes – failing forward.  What really caught my eye was the quote from one of the most famous basketball players of all time – Michael Jordan:

“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game’s winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

We learn more from our failures than we do from our successes.  Now that is something to think about today!
