I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.
My two cents
Wow, I would never expected someone like Michael Jordan to accept failure. This quote has changed the way I think about failure. If someone successful as him can accept failure, then so can I. I think for a time I was too worried with failure to take risks. Now I know the most important thing is to try. If it doesn’t work out, then it wasn’t meant to be; I’ve done my part.
