The Mamba Mentality By Kobe Bryant
Ever wonder what elevates a mediocre player from a great player? Look no further than the Mamba Mentality. Kobe gives readers a peek under his killer competitiveness in this great read for sports and non sports fans. Kobe walks readers through how he mastered the art of basketball physically but more importantly mentally. Kobe adopted the ‘Black Mamba’ moniker as part of his image as a win at all costs, attention to detail, fierce competitive athlete. Great images with one of a kind commentary by the mamba himself.
Key takeaway: In many interviews Kobe has explained his disciplined training regimens that have become NBA lore. One simple practice of his was if most other players are training twice a day in the early afternoon and evening and I am able to get a 3rd session in very early in the morning, the compounding hours of those extra training sessions would add up to quite a lot that would further separate him from his peers. What can you be doing to go the extra mile?
Quote of the book: “Whether I hear an elite college or NBA player or a Fortune 500 CEO reference the #MambaMentality, I find it very meaningful. When I see people talk about finding inspiration in it, it makes all of my hard work, all of the sweat, all of the 3 AM wakeups feel worth it. That’s why I put together this book. All these pages incorporate lessons—not just lessons on basketball, but also on the Mamba Mentality.”
