I look three to five years ahead, not 10 years behind.
Other Magic Johnson quotes:
A woman always remembers. Remember that.
I think that there are always goals for me to try to achieve, and I'm going to work toward those goals.
When I'm under the gun and I've got pressure on me, I don't panic. I look for the right solution, and then I go for it.
I'm a big believer in dreaming. If you don't dream it, you can't become it.
If people around you aren't going anywhere, if their dreams are no bigger than hanging out on the corner, or if they're dragging you down, get rid of them.
In life, winning and losing will both happen. What is never acceptable is quitting.
If you hate to lose, you do whatever you need to do to make sure you're business is successful.
You're the only one who can make the difference. Whatever your dream is, go for it.
If you want someone to be your mentor, you better be ready to listen and be humbled.
If you're a competitive person, that stays with you. You don't stop. You always look over your shoulder.
