Kobe Bryant’s mindset will continue to live within us all. So when we get frustrated, let that be the motivation to push harder. When you fall to the ground, understand that once you’re back up, the fall will only have made you stronger. When you’re tired and feeling like giving up, don’t. You will be proud you didn’t.
As we continue to mourn the loss of the beautiful people on board the helicopter that Sunday morning, we shouldn’t let the losses keep us down. We will cry, ask why, get angry, but keep pushing. Kobe left something invaluable to us all— the power of the Mamba Mentality.
Our love, strength and prayers go out to the Bryant family and all impacted by this horrific tragedy.
