"Don't Quit" Quote of the Week

“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.”

— Michael Jordan
Legendary basketball player

  1. I love this quote and as hard as it is to go through, hard work and success is learned through failure. This bring me to think about my kids...sometimes I struggle as a parent when trying to ENCOURAGE them to keep trying and keep working...and allowing them to find that which motivates them and keeps them trying without pushing anything down their throat. We are lucky to be able to have choices, and sometimes it's a delicate balance we have to figure out for ourselves....of whether to stick to something and keep working hard at it when it gets rough, or give it up altogether and try something else. Age is a factor, but it's still a challenge at any age!
