Michael Jordan



The inspirational leader this month is basketball legend Michael Jordan. Here are a few of his gems.

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.

You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.



I realized that if I was going to achieve anything in life I had to be aggressive. I had to get out there and go for it… I know fear is an obstacle for some people, but it’s an illusion to me.

Step by step. I can’t see any other way of accomplishing anything.

A true legend in sport. His work ethics, commitment, great attitude and positive beliefs speak for itself. Do yours?!

Sporting regards
