I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.
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.
If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.
I never looked at the consequences of missing a big shot… when you think about the consequences you always think of a negative result.
If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.
My body could stand the crutches but my mind couldn’t stand the sideline.
My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 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.
