9,000 Shots

"I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. 
I have lost almost 300 games. 
On 26 occassions 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

Failure and success.  It's a winning combination.  Those who are successful are the ones who stick through their trials and failures in order to succeed.  Those who fail are those who didn't stick it out and did not pursue on to success.

If you are carrying on through failures, you will meet success.  With each failure, get back up and keep on trying.  You will get there.  Those who end up as a failure are simply those who gave up.

Thought of the Day:  You can and will succeed, if you keep carrying on.  Success isn't always easy and the road to it can sometimes get tiring.  Take a rest if you need to, but keep on trying.  You will get there with hard work and determination.  Success is attainable to any of us who simply refuse to give up.

Have a great day!


  1. Just as Henry Ford said, "If you think you can you can, if you think you can't then you're right!" The most important key to keep going is the immense clarity of what we want in our life and the desperation to have it.
