A tragic story. Unexpected. And to remember the man for what he did for a sport and for people who followed him: INSPIRATION.
The Philadelphia Eagles have paid tribute to Kobe Bryant with a memorial wall at their practice facility.
The mural has three images of Bryant: one from his playing days at nearby Lower Merion High School, one as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers and one in an Eagles uniform.
In the middle are “Kobe’s 10 Rules”:
- GET BETTER EVERY SINGLE DAY
- PROVE THEM WRONG
- WORK ON YOUR WEAKNESSES
- EXECUTE WHAT YOU PRACTICED
- LEARN FROM GREATNESS
- LEARN FROM WINS & LOSSES
- PRACTICE MINDFULNESS
- BE AMBITIOUS
- #BELIEVE IN YOUR TEAM
- LEARN STORYTELLING
We can all learn from this. We can all live by this in our lives, in the work that we do, and in the way we choose to be a part of something much much bigger than ourselves.
