Failure – The Greatest Teacher

” I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career.  I’ve lost 300 games.  26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.  I’ve failed over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed.”

Michael Jordan – NBA star

Failure becomes our friend and greatest teacher if we give it a chance.


  1. When I’d fall off my pony, or my horse, I used to ask my Dad why that happened over and over again. He said that’s the way you learn to stay on. He was right, as is Michael Jordan. When you fail, it makes the victories that much more precious.
