One year ago today January 26, 2020, the sports world lost the legend Mamba. May his quotes inspire you to strive to help others and make a positive difference. Kobe once said “Life is too short to get bogged down and be discouraged. You have to keep moving. You have to keep going. Put one foot in front of the other, smile, and just keep on rolling.”

“Everyone looks at your watch and it represents who you are, your values and your personal style.”

“When we are saying this cannot be accomplished, this cannot be done, then we are short-changing ourselves. My brain, it cannot process failure. It will not process failure. Because if I have to sit there and face myself and tell myself ‘you are a failure,’ I think that is almost worse than dying.”

“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.”

 “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.”

“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.”

“The most important thing is you must put everybody on notice that you’re here and you are for real. I’m not a player that is just going to come and go. I’m not a player that is going to make an All-Star team one time, two times. I’m here to be an all-time great. Once I made that commitment and said, ‘I want to be one of the greatest ever’, then the game became everything for me.”

“If you want to be great at something, there’s a choice you have to make. What I mean by that is, there are inherent sacrifices that come along with that. Family time, hanging out with friends, being a great friend, being a great son, nephew, whatever the case may be.”

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

Are you willing to push the right buttons even if it means being perceived as the villain? I’d rather be perceived as a winner than a good teammate. I wish they both went hand in hand all the time but that’s just not reality. I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success.” 

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

“Sports are such a great teacher. I think of everything they’ve taught me: camaraderie, humility, how to resolve differences.”

“I can’t relate to lazy people. We don’t speak the same language. I don’t understand you. I don’t want to understand you.”

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

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