Failing means Success?

Not a professional basketball fan? Even if you aren't, most likely you've heard of this successful NBA star.

I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life,

and that is why I succeed.

– Michael Jordan

I love to find a notable quote. Especially when it comes from a legend like Jordan--the quote clearly connects with me and my daily teaching and playing those 88 black and whites. Found it at the Life Success Zone website.

Interesting that it seems to tie in quite well with a book I recently picked up again--Art & Fear by Bayles and Orland.  In chapter two it claims " Basically, those who continue to make art, are those who have learned how to continue--or more precisely, have learned how to not quit."  [especially after failing].

More on the insightful book in a later blog, but in the meantime, I highly recommend picking up a copy for yourself if you haven't done so already.  Would love to hear your thoughts!
