Willingness to Fail

Often hailed as the greatest basketball player of all time, the statistical summary does not do him justice.

Michael Jordan, of the Chicago Bulls and the US Olympic teams, was a staggering athlete with a unique combination of grace, skill, power, artistry, improvisationand competitive hunger.

"Twenty six times," he said, "I have been entrusted to take the game and missed."

"I failed over and over again in my life."

"That is why I succeed."
