One Insult Worth a Billion Dollars
Michael Jordan was insulted by his pops the late James Jordan once, and it is estimated by the author of Michael Jordan The Life that it inspired Michael to be SUPER GREAT. James Jordan, while asking Michael to pass tools to him while working on the car, as Michael made errors, Mr. Jordan told Michael, he be better off going inside with the women (referring to his sisters and mom).
Michael didn’t take that the best way, and as Roland Lazenby put it in the book, Michael spent a lifetime proving to his dad that he was masculine enough. This is how one insult was worth a billion dollars, because MJ was recently reported to be worth a billion dollars.
People use pain to get through things. MJ’s Hall of Fame speech was loaded with pain and motivation to win, the fame UK singer Adele used the pain from a relationship breakup to BANG into the scene, and we can do the same!
What pain do you have that you can use as motivation. Hey, one insult worth a billion dollars, one of yours could be worth a million.
