“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game's winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that's why I succeed.” - Michael Jordan, NBA Hall of Famer.

Great article on dealing with conflict in the workplace. I especially liked this one:
“Ask the most conflict-diffusing question: Are you OK?

“The next time someone flies off the handle on you, here's a way to positively blow that person away with your response. Try asking, "Are you OK? What's going on?" Then, simply listen.

“What comes next may surprise you. You will most likely open up the door for the other person to explain the issue behind the issue -- why they really feel the way they do. Now you have arrived at an opportunity for further dialogue to problem solve and come to terms with an agreeable solution.”
