Want to win?Then get ready to lose.

Here’s an excellent quote from the best basketball player in history. It’s posted on a wall at the New York startup AppNexus. It may actually have been written by a Nike ad copywriter, but whatever:

“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.” 

— Michael Jordan
