------------ "I can accept failure. Everyone fails at one time. But I can’t accept not trying." – Michael Jordan Michael Jordan is re-known for his incredible work effort. In this quote he speaks to the dedication to the process. And no matter what our goals is, whether it be in the gym, at work, or at home, this central theme rings true. Our commitment to putting our all towards something, to give truly the best chance to ourselves, is everything. If we fail – if Michael Jordan doesn’t win the championship – we’ll accept that. But what we can’t accept, is never trying. No one on their death bed ever said they regret trying. Far too often, they have to say the opposite.
