As we wrap up Kobe’s Film Room series, today we examine the importance of curiosity.

Even if it took a few cold calls here and there, Kobe followed through… What does this mean for you? How will you interpret this past week’s deep dive into Mr. Bryant’s mind?

You know the type of person who complains, avoids, procrastinates, only to remain in the same pace, year after year?
Nas describes this type perfectly in this track, and I break down how to approach your goals with the opposite mindset.
Jan 21, 2020
Most of your peers are victims....and you most likely are, too. Being a "victim" means you act helpless to change your circumstances, and life bullies you into submission everyday.

If you're a student, you might have to run this episode back as a new semester approaches... Just because you can ball on the field or court, doesn't mean you'll be able to take those skills and apply them in the classroom. Just like anything else, there is a strategy and mindset that is required to kill it in the classroom and get the grades you need. In my experience, when I wanted to, I was able to crush it in the classroom. In this episode, I break down specifically how I did it.

I had a lot of fun recording this, as I made sure to not hold anything back...You may have a difficult time hearing parts of it, but it's the truth as I see it. There are no "easy" steps to become the level of tough you need to be. It's difficult, and that's ok. But you must be aware of how to do it, and you need to be woken up. Tomorrow's the start of a new decade... Get a fresh start and toughen up.

The human brain is wired to overvalue the opinions of our served us back when we were roaming the African savanna, but it doesn't serve us as much now. That feeling you get when your friends talk mess about you, when your parents disapprove, or when you miss a shot in a game...That feeling paralyzes many and prevents them from taking risks or doing what is necessary. You cannot be a victim to this disease, you have to learn how to overcome the fear of others opinions...but how? How can you practically and systematically build immunity to what stops so many others? In this episode, I show you how I approach this problem.

Whether you are a current or former athlete, the older you get, the more tight and stiff your body will become, unless you take proactive measures to get it right. In this episode, I share a new tool that I have begun using that has taken my pliability and "limberness" to the next level. I was introduced to this tool through Tom Brady's "TB12 Method" book, and it is quite effective. Take a listen. #UpOnGame
