This man transcends sport. His drive, discipline and work ethic define success; a source of motivation for young and old, beginners to professionals, team mates and competition alike. They say legends never die and his memory will live on forever. This quote really resonates with me. Someone asked me recently what my motivation to get up and grind every day was. Basically, my answer is that all I know is hard work and everything Iโ€™ve ever accomplished has been a product of it. I donโ€™t fear pain, I donโ€™t avoid hardship; because I know what they bring. Success is never easy; accomplishment is never guaranteed; tomorrow is never promised. #kobe #rip #mamba #success #drive #discipline #motivation #boxing #basketball
