The Best Basketball Player
This quote was by Michael Jordan. He was arguably the best basketball player to ever play the game. This quote is inspiring because it tells myself to keep going in life and to never back down to a challenge. The first line in this quote really inspires me because it says, “ I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed” source. This inspires me because even though he succeeded in the end, things didn’t come easy at first. He has missed plenty of shots that he could have made but he is still a basketball player that has definitely succeeded in his career of basketball. Another reason why this quote inspires me is when he said: “there is no ‘i’ in team but there is an ‘i’ in win”. That makes me think that you can never do anything in life without teamwork to help you. You can’t win a basketball game without a team. You can’t win any game without a team and that's what I like about this quote. Another reason why I like this quote is he uses the word failure a lot.
Stepping Stones to Reach Success
I think of getting all of your failures and using them as stepping stones to reach success. This can relate to real life if you keep failing a class and then eventually things start to even out and you start to succeed in that class. Another interesting thing on why this quote is important or inspiring to me is because he is saying I will help someone that is trying but someone that doesn’t try I won’t help. People who fail at different things doesn’t mean they are bad at it, and at least they tried to succeed. In life there are obstacles. You have to avoid or move around those obstacles to succeed. If you don’t try in life like trying to move around those obstacles, you will not succeed and you will never succeed. The last reason why this quote is inspiring is when he says “I've always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.” This explains how if you put enough effort into something you love doing the results will end up coming. If you work really hard on a project and you know you should get a good grade on it. The results come and you got an A+. This is an inspiring quote that Michael Jordan himself wrote. I picked this quote because I felt that this quote is a good lesson to learn in life. It teaches you teamwork, hard work, and even if you fail there is still space for success. This quote is very inspiring. The full article can be found on writingpapersucks.com.
