“Those times when you get up early and you work hard, those times when you stay up late and you work hard, those times when you don’t feel like working, you’re too tired, you don’t want to push yourself, but you do it anyway. That is actually the dream.” – Kobe Bryant, 2017 jersey retirement speech

 “We’re not on this stage just because of talent or ability. We’re up here because of 4 a.m. We’re up here because of two-a-days or five-a-days. We’re up here because we had a dream and let nothing stand in our way. If anything tried to bring us down, we used it to make us stronger. We were never satisfied, never finished….” – Kobe Bryant, accepting the 2016 ESPY Icon Award

Law school is hard.

It’s a new way of studying. It’s a new way of thinking. It’s a new way of looking at things.

There are moments when you wonder if it’s worth it.

You are living a few years of your life like most people won’t.

So you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.

Keep going.
