I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up.
You're never a loser until you quit trying.
If you aren't going all the way, why go at all?
If you're fail to prepare, you're prepared to fail.
The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a man's determination.
Set your goals high, and don't stop till you get there.
Champions keep playing until they get it right.
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. 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.
Make sure your worst enemy doesn't live between your two ears.
Somewhere behind the athlete you've become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back... play for her.
It is not the size of a man but the size of his heart that matters.
I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'
There may be people who have more talent than you, but there's no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do - and I believe that.
It's not the will to win that matters-everyone has that. It's the will to prepare to win that matters.
There is no such thing as life in-between.
If you can believe it, the mind can achieve it.
You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
Always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you.
