Inspirational Video Of The Week #26: “Listen to What Michael Jordan Has to Say About Failure”

Today’s inspirational video features in my opinion the greatest basketball player of the world. Guess who? The one and only… Mr. Michael Jordan. If you are a Kobe, Lebron or a Durant fan, please don’t be mad at me. HEHE :D. They are great players too!!

Remember, it’s all about the message and the lesson we can learn from MJ’s experience in order to become a successful individual and a world class champion like him.

MJ will be sharing his thoughts about the topic of failing and some of his biggest failures in NBA.

Believe me… You are about to listen one of the shortest and most powerful keynote speeches of your life!! Don’t be surprised if after watching this video you start doing the “AIR” Jordan.

Now, push “PLAY” and let the magic begin…


Powerful lesson isn’t it? That’s what we gotta do… Take more chances, don’t be scared to stumble forward and be willing to welcome the mistakes and the failing spectrum into our world.

This is how I see life!! We go from being good, to being great, to being extraordinary until we arrive at the excellence level. What ever it is that we are trying to accomplish in business, relationships or a special skill we are developing, just make sure to don’t give up and keep making constant progress. That’s the real key to succeed.

I few days ago I came across a great inspirational quote that in a nutshell describes perfectly the message of this inspirational video and I think it’s going to be ideal to close this post in a positive way!!

Here it is…

“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You’re thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all… You can be discouraged by failure – or you can learn from it.  So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can.  Because, remember that’s where you’ll find success.  On the far side.” By Thomas J. Watson (1874-1956, Chairman of IBM)

Let me ask you… What do you think about failing and making mistakes?  Are you going to embrace MJ and Watson’s mentality?   Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
