Quote: Michael Jordan

Forgive the sports kick I’m on, of late.  It happens.  Yet, I think even the non-jocks among you will feel inspired by the following insight from His High-ness Michael Jordan, who celebrates his 48th birthday today.

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 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.”

-Michael Jordan

    It’s fun to have competition/success as a topic…especially since it’s antithetical to a yoga mind.

    At the end of each practice I say to myself: That was my best practice ever….until the next one.
    It helps put success in its own context.

    . Every time he failed it was because he tried. And because he was always willing to try, there are hundreds of times he succeeded!

    Great quote.
