“I Can’t Accept Not Trying”

13 03 2012

“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.” (Michael Jordan)

This man led his team to numerous NBA championships.

This man, when breaking into professional baseball–his second sport–arrived earlier and stayed later than anyone else.

This man would not dream of blowing off a team workout with the pathetic excuse “it’s just practice.”

This man wrote a book entitled I Can’t Accept Not Trying (fittingly subtitled Michael Jordan On The Pursuit of Excellence).

There’s a reason why the Michael Jordans of this world are so rare.  Will you take the challenge and lead your team–whatever your team is–to a much higher place with your excellence and toil?
