Nobody wants to fail, but if you want to do great things, you’re going to have setbacks every so often. Failure is a requirement of success and it’s how you handle and learn from your failures that makes all the difference. Candace Parker knows the importance of examining her weaknesses.

“The biggest thing is your mindset and just how you handle failures and obstacles and things that are thrown your way – whether it be something major like an injury or whether it be something as minor as having an off-shooting night. [You have to] study how people are able to bounce back and continue to stay true to their talents and also improve their weaknesses”, states Candace.

Candace maximized the intangibles – mindset, positive attitude, work ethic and passion – to set the foundation for becoming one of the most decorated basketball players in the history of the game. Candace’s success comes not from her jump shot or defensive prowess, but from how she prepares. “You want to be confident – not in your abilities – but in your preparation … I haven’t always been confident. When things don’t go right right away, I doubt myself …,” she says.

I am always inspired by great work ethics and patience in a world where a lot of people want microwaveable success. When success does not happen instantly many believe that they have failed. Kudos Candace!
