14. Michael Jordan
The legendary basketball player is one of the most revered sportsmen breathing on the planet Earth. However, this stalwart was rejected from his high school Basketball team for his height.
Did the rejection break his will? No by a bit! He kept on pushing himself and became a star. Michael says, “You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.”
If you are willing to taste success, set high standards for yourself, and do everything that it takes to achieve them. You sure will arrive at the podium one day.
