Bounce Boosters: 5 quotes to help you bounce back in life

(1 Comment)

I’m bookending this month’s resiliency quotes with a bit of boxing lore:


1. Mary Elder

Sometimes grace comes in the form of a punch in the face.


2. Michael Jordan

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 winning shot… and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that’s precisely why I succeed.

3. Anonymous

The bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you refuse to take the turn.


4. Warren Bennis

The leaders I met, whatever walk of life they were from, whatever institutions they were presiding over, always referred back to the same failure – something that happened to them that was personally difficult, even traumatic, something that made them feel that desperate sense of hitting bottom–as something they thought was almost a necessity.

It’s as if at that moment the iron entered their soul; that moment created the resilience that leaders need.


5. Muhammad Ali

Inside of a ring or out, ain’t nothing wrong with going down. It’s staying down that’s wrong.
