“I DIDN’T TRAIN ONLY MY BODY — I TRAINED MY MIND, TOO.”
The Mamba Mentality.
As Kobe said:
“The only way I was able to pick up details on the court, was by training my mind to do that off the court and focusing on every detail in my daily life. By reading, by paying attention in class and in practice, by working, I strengthened my focus. By doing all of that, I strengthened my ability to be present and not have a wandering mind…
The key, though, is being aware of how you’re feeling and how you need to be feeling. It all starts with awareness.”
Your mental muscles are just as important (or maybe more important) as your physical muscles!
It is the mental reps, day after day, that will build your awareness of your thought patterns.
And that is when the magic starts to happen.
Are you training your mind?
