“Everybody has talent, but ability takes hard work.”
– Michael Jordan
I was doing research for a potential client, and I somewhat landed on an NBA page.
As a Chinese educated little girl, we did not learn English till the age of 7. The MJ I knew during my initial years was Michael Jordan, not Michael Jackson. Both black, both talented, both pour heart and soul into the field, but it was the MJ who did not sing got me goose bump all over.
When I was young, we did not have satellite tv like how we have it now, where we can tune into live games any moment. Yet, I believed I know way more games, more stories, more stars back then, and of course, more die heart.
That golden era of NBA, it was all about Air Jordan.
“Heart is what separates the good from the great.”
– Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan was such a star, those days, and even now. Of course great talents emerge in every era, and we’re glad to see that, but MJ gave us so much inspiration back then.
Every boy in the school team wants to be MJ, everyone talks about MJ, the room was so quiet when we played the VCR.
I genuinely admire MJ, and his dedication on something he truly loves. Everyone has talent, but ability takes hardwork. Persistency is not a talent, it is hardwork.
Try, keep on trying. I can accept failure, but I cannot accept not trying. That is his famous saying. And I take it to heart from the very first time I heard it.
Funny how after 15years, away from a die heart basketball games supporter, I relate to MJ’s quote more than ever. His quotes, are definitely for everyday life, didn’t they say, every game is like one life story? Either you take the beating or rise above and go head on with it. Winning or not is otherwise, at least you tried to detest fate.
“Be true to the game, because the game will be true to you. If you try to shortcut the game, then the game will shortcut you. If you put forth the effort, good things will be bestowed upon you. That’s truly about the game, and in some ways that’s about life too.”
– Michael Jordan
