Michael Jordan quotes

I hope the millions of people I've touched have the optimism and desire to share their goals and hard work and persevere with a positive attitude.

Limits, like fear, is often an illusion.

There is no 'i' in team but there is in win.

Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.

Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.

Ultimately, if you can say that I'm a bad owner and we're winning championships, I can live with that. But if we're not making the playoffs and we're spending and losing money, then I have to look in the mirror and say maybe I'm not taking the necessary steps to doing what it takes to run an organization.

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.

If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.

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.

I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.

My heroes are and were my parents. I can't see having anyone else as my heroes.

I play to win, whether during practice or a real game. And I will not let anything get in the way of me and my competitive enthusiasm to win.

I've always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.

You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.

Even when I'm old and grey, I won't be able to play it, but I'll still love the game.

I've never been afraid to fail.

I'm not out there sweating for three hours every day just to find out what it feels like to sweat.

I never thought a role model should be negative.
