This quote by Martin Luther King Jr. means that a person shouldn't let anybody stop them from doing what they want to do and to not let anything get their way.
Micheal had a tough time playing basketball. As a kid he was always the smaller guy and when he got into High School he didn't make the freshman team. But Micheal didn't let that stop him from being one of the greatest basketball players of all time. One of his quotes were " 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 is why I succeed."
