A Venomous Will
Oh shit is it that time already?
No. It must be a dream. It can’t be happening yet.
It’s still pitch black outside, this isn’t natural.
Why am I doing this again?
What could I possibly do in the next 3 hours to separate myself from the rest of the world?
Can I have 15 more minutes?
It’s time to face that ugly, dogged daily opponent called 4 AM.
He will be the toughest foe you encounter, and if you conquer him the world will come in tow.
The Lakers 3-Peat spanned my 8th-1oth years of life, and during those fateful seasons Kobe Bryant bit a poor kid from The Valley.
When he sank his fangs into me, it altered my life forever. He infected me with a venomous will for greatness.
Once that venom is coursing through your veins, no 4 AM can break you. No challenge is too great. Everything is possible through focused, engrossing, never-ending, soul-cleansing hard work.
Thank you, Kobe.
