Michael Jordan is often called the greatest basketball player ever. All players since him – want to be like Mike. Interestingly, Michael’s greatness didn’t translate over to baseball and he has only been an average NBA general manager. Does someone have to be great in everything they do?
I would be happy being great in one thing, but that’s not how people who have achieved greatness think. They want to be great in everything that they do. Greatness requires competitiveness. I’m not sure if you can turn it on and turn it off.
Here are some other interesting points from the video:
- Determination – Don’t be afraid to try. Worst thing that can happen is that it doesn’t work out.
- Nothing to fear, but fear itself
- Take a chance – “Failure gave me strength – that pain was my motivation”
- You miss every shot that you don’t take
- “I have looked at every experience that I have had negative and positive and taken it as a positive.
- “My competitive drive is greater than anyone that I have met”
- “I have failed over and over in my life and that is why I succeed.”
- Success is inside you
- Stay true to yourself
- There are no shortcuts to success
My favorite point is “I have failed over and over in my life and this is why I succeed.”
