Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
My attitude is, if you push me toward something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.
If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them – everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up, figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.
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.
I want to wake up every day and do whatever comes in my mind, and not feel pressure or obligations to do anything else in my life.
