You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
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.
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.
I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.
I've always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come. I don't do things half-heartedly. Because I know if I do, then I can expect half-hearted results.
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
Fólk getur flogið. Sumir fljúga hærra en aðrir, það er allt og sumt.
Enska: People can fly. Some people fly higher than others, that's all.
Sumir vilja að það gerist, sumir óska þess að það gerist, aðrir láta það gerast.
Enska: Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.
Ég æfi nógu mikið á æfingum svo leikurinn sjálfur varð oft auðveldari en æfingin.
Hvað tækir þú þér fyrir hendur ef þú vissir að þér gæti ekki mistekist?
Aðeins þeir sem þora að gera mikil mistök geta náð miklum árangri.
Stundin er alltaf rétt til að gera hið rétta.
