I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying. (Michael Jordan, former pro basketball star)

Even Michael Jordan had bad games, missed shots, and made mistakes; but he persevered and has been honored as one of the best ball players of all time. Few of us will achieve the heights as he did, but we should adopt his work ethic. No matter how difficult, no matter how many times we fall, we determine to get up and keep trying until the job is done.

Though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again (Proverbs 24:16).
