“All great champions, most of whom are optimists, have become great because of – not in spite of – great adversity. Michael Jordan, a perennial optimist, once said, ‘I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game’s winning shot…and missed. I have failed over and over and over in my life. And that is why I succeed.’ If ever there was a case for optimism, this is it.”
