Success or Failure? The Wisdom of a Basketball Player

Updated: Dec 21, 2023

Last April 27, a reporter asked Gianni Antetokounmpo, a professional basketball player for the Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association (NBA), if his season was a failure.

His answer is a masterclass. This is the kind of talk about failure and success that parents should pass on to their children. The parallel with professional life, business and entrepreneurship is obvious:

“Do you get promoted every year?

If not, is your work a failure?

Every year you work towards a goal: getting a promotion, being able to take care of your family, provide them with a home, taking care of your parents, etc...

There are good days and bad days. Some days you succeed, some days you don't. Some days it's your turn, some days it's not. You don't always win. You will come back and try to get better, to build good habits.

Therefore, your work is not a failure, but steps towards success.”
