I, along with most of the world, am in shock and truly heartbroken by the tragic passing of NBA legend Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and seven others in a helicopter crash. Though I’m not big on basketball anymore, I grew up watching him on and off the court. My heart breaks for these family and friends impacted. In the midst of confusion and sadness, it’s only fitting that today’s #MondayMotivation quote comes from him. Rest in peace to all nine of these souls.
I’ve been praying and meditating over my life lately that my life and my work touches people and pushes them to be great. This quote reminded me of that mission. I realize just how much impact matters over money or fame. And it’s not for your own glory. For me, it’s all about God and his love and light showing through. I don’t always get things right. I’m obviously imperfect in thoughts, words, and deeds. But, overall, I hope and pray that, when I leave this earth, I will have impacted someone to do more with his or her life. To be the best that they can be. Kobe did that for millions but as long as it’s one person, I’ll be at peace.
