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.” This made me think of the failures I’ve made and how sometimes in the past the job I wanted slipped through my grasp. Suddenly things are… Read more
