Quote Of The Day: Michael Jordon On Success

"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" - Michael Jordan

Vocabulary in the quote:
  • To miss a shot = Not to put the ball in the basket. 
  • To be trusted to do something = When people trust you, believe in you, or depend on you to do something correctly.
