Michael Jordan said
If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.
I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
The game is my wife. It demands loyalty and responsibility, and it gives me back fulfillment and peace.
In college I never realized the opportunities available to a pro athlete. I've been given the chance to meet all kinds of people, to travel and expand my financial capabilities, to get ideas and learn about life, to create a world apart from basketball.
