Michael Jordan’s Secrets Of Success

As a sophomore in high school, he was dropped from the varsity basketball team.  He was so devastated that he went home and cried.  His mom gave him some good advise.  “Work so hard and improve so much that the coach realizes that he made a mistake.”

Michael did not give up on his dream.  He immediately started playing on the Junior Varsity team with extreme dedication.  He practiced more than his teammates and he played with incredible intensity.  With hard work and perseverance, he eventually became one of the greatest basketball players of all time.  The following quotes from Michael remind us of the importance of self-discipline, dedication and demanding more from yourself than others do.


I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.  I don’t do things half-heartedly.  Because I know if I do, I can expect half-hearted results.”   -Michael Jordan


“If you quit once, it becomes a habit.  Never quit! -Michael Jordan


“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something.  But I can’t accept not trying.” -Michael Jordan


“If you do the work you get rewarded. There are no shortcuts in life.” -Michael Jordan


“I’ve missed more than 9000 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 again in my life.  And that is why I succeed.”      -Michael Jordan


“I play to win, whether during practice or a real game.  And I will not let anything get in the way of me and my competitive enthusiasm to win.”         -Michael Jordan


“The day I stop improving is the day I walk away from the game.”      -Michael Jordan
