There’s a bigger boneyard of missed shots and lost games than most people are aware of. This is what Michael Jordan said about his success and failure, “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.”
That’s not MJ sitting on a bench by a basketball court smoking a cigarette, in case you were wondering.
