The end of the basketball season will be over soon and the 2017 NBA Champion will be crowned. This motivational video looks at the greatness of Kobe Bryant, one of the all-time greats and what made him so great.
“There’s a choice that we have to make as individuals if you want to be great at something. We all can be masters at our craft, but you have to make the choice.”
“You can’t possibly become better than me because you’re not spending the time on it that I do.”
“You start with where you want your game to be… What would make your game the most unstoppable, or hard to deal with… And now you work backward from there. You start building it one piece at a time, one move at a time, one counter at a time.”
“Imagine you wake up at 3, you train at 4, from 4 to 6. Come home, have breakfast. Now you’re back at it again from 9 to 11, relax, and now you’re back at it again from 2 to 4, now you’re back at it again from 7 to 9… Look how much more training I have done by simply starting at 4.
So now you do that, and as the years go on, the separation you have with your competitors and peers grows larger and larger… And by year 5 and 6, it doesn’t matter what kind of work they do in the summer — they’re NEVER going to catch up.”
