R.I.P. MAMBA & Mambacita

Kobe Bryant left a legacy that goes beyond basketball. And with his fateful death, the basketball icon reminds us of these life lessons that we can all learn from:

"Rest at the end, not in the middle."

"If you don’t believe in yourself, no one will do it for you."

"The magic in life is finding what it is that you love. That’s the key. When you find that thing that you love, your life makes sense. You wake up in the morning, and life makes sense. And for me, it was basketball."

"This is the moment I accept the most challenging times will always be behind me and in front of me.

Everything negative – pressure, challenges – is all an opportunity for me to rise."

"The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do."

"Winning takes precedence over all. There’s no gray area. No almosts."

"Once you know what failure feels like, determination chases success."

"I realized that intimidation didn’t really exist if you’re in the right frame of mind."

I’m reflective only in the sense that I learn to move forward. I reflect with a purpose.

I’m extremely willful to win, and I respond to challenges. It’s not a challenge to me to win the scoring title, because I know I can.

The beauty in being blessed with talent is rising above doubters to create a beautiful moment.

A lot of leaders fail because they don’t have the bravery to touch that nerve or strike that chord.

The moment you give up, is the moment you let someone else win.

If you’re afraid to fail, then you’re probably going to fail.

Pain doesn’t tell you when you ought to stop. Pain is the little voice in your head that tries to hold you back because it knows if you continue you will change.

"Use your success, wealth and influence to put them in the best position to realize their own dreams and find their true purpose."

"We all have self-doubt. You don’t deny it, but you also don’t capitulate to it. You embrace it."

"My brain . . . it cannot process failure. It will not process failure. Because if I sit there and have to face myself and tell myself, ‘You’re a failure’ . . . I think that’s almost worse than death."

"The most important thing is you must put everybody on notice that you’re here and you are for real.

Trust me, setting things up right from the beginning will avoid a ton of tears and heartache…"

"I create my own path. It was straight and narrow. I looked at it this way: you were either in my way, or out of it."

"We can always kind of be average and do what’s normal. I’m not in this to do what’s normal."

"Haters are a good problem to have. Nobody hates the good ones. They hate the great ones.

It’s the one thing you can control."

"You are responsible for how people remember you—or don’t. So don’t take it lightly."

“Heroes get remembered but legends never die.”

“Everything negative – pressure, challenges – is all an opportunity for me to rise.”
