Today we mourn the loss of NBA legend Kobe Bryant. With his entire 20-year career, Kobe Bryant was able to show his true strength, dedication, and passion to the game. As an athlete, father, and community leader, Bryant has learned a lot about dedication and success. Take a look at one of his most important life lessons from NBA legend Kobe Bryant.
Kobe Bryant showcased that discipline, effort, and persistence can truly make a difference in our own lives. That meant early-morning workouts on game days. Workouts after games. Shooting in dark gyms because no one was there to turn on the lights. Working out numerous times a day, every day.
As Jalen Rose said, “He was the smartest guy in the room… and the hardest-working guy in the room.” When Kobe thought he was exhausted, when he thought he was fried, when he thought he had done all he could… that’s when he dug deep. That’s when he found a little more inside. And then made that his new level of expectation. He constantly raised self-imposed limits (because most of our “limits” are actually self-imposed) in search of achieving what was actually possible.
