Study The Game | Mamba Mondays

The two quotes below provide a look into Kobe Bryant's mindset and mentality.

First, Kobe says:

"Everything was done to try to learn how to become a better basketball player; everything. When you have that point of view, then literally the world becomes your library to help you become better at your craft."

When you know what you want and know what you are looking for, the world will give you exactly the information you need to learn, grow, and become the best version of yourself.

Then, he said:

"Every day for 20 years. It was an everyday process of trying to figure out strengths and weaknesses. I wasn't the highest jumper, my hands weren't the biggest, I wasn't the quickest, I wasn't the fastest. I had to rely on skill and angles more, and I had to study the game a lot more. But I enjoyed it though. For as long as I can remember when I started watching the game, I studied the game and it just never changed."

If you want to be great at anything, self-awareness is important. Know what your strengths are and how to maximize them. Know what your weaknesses are and how to mask them while you grow them.

Then study what you want to be great at. Author Daniel Coyle said, "Life is a learning competition." The person who knows the most has the advantage.

Be a student of what you want to be great at.
