He was an 18-time All-Star, 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, 12-time member of the All-Defensive team, and the 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP).  Apart from this, he is also known to the business world as a brand-builder, an investor and a coach to other athletes and company founders.

But most importantly he was famous for his attitude, and his so-called “Mamba Mentality

What is the Mamba Mentality?

“We don’t quit,

We don’t cower,

We don’t run,

We endure & conquer

That’s Mamba Mentality”

It’s simple, if you have a goal or a dream, you need to apply the Mamba Mentality to achieve it. Everything worth achieving needs total focus and dedication.
