Maybe I led you to believe that it was easy, when it wasn’t.
Maybe I made you think my highlight started at the free throw line, and not in the gym.
Maybe I made you think every shot I took was a game winner.
That my game was based on flash, and not fire.
Maybe its my fault that you didn’t see that failure gave me strength, that my pain was my motivation.
Maybe I led you to believe that basketball was a God given gift, and not something I worked for… every single day of my life.
Maybe I destroyed the game… or maybe, you’re just making excuses.
– Michael Jordan
These are the words of a champion, someone who has made no excuses and worked his tail off to be the best he can be. There is no reason you can’t be as good as any athlete in any sport. The real question is, how bad do you want it? You’re either making excuses or, maybe, you’re not.
