SHOW DESCRIPTION: In this podcast I talk to author Eli Ihej about his new book, What Kobe Left Behind: The Playbook from an Extraordinary Life, what Kobe Bryant’s legacy can teach you about mental health and pursuing your purpose, how to become a champion in every area of your life, triumphing over adversity, and so much more!
Even if you are not a basketball or sports fan, the story of Kobe has so much to offer. Over his lifetime, he learned techniques, skills and habits that allowed him to transcend his past and become victorious inside and outside the sports world. These skills can help anyone become their best selves—they can help us do so much more with what we are given and enhance our lives in so many ways.
