Michael Jordan on Success

Via the Zikomoletter:

"I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty six 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."

- Nike Culture : The Sign of the Swoosh (1998), by Robert Goldman and Stephen Papson, p. 49

One of  my mentors used to yell at me "Fail Forward Faster!".
Ir didn't work.
