379: Kobe Bryant on Legacy
you're listening to the daily sales tips. PODCAST I'm your host Scott Ingram. Today is Super Bowl Sunday and I probably totally should be doing some type of super bowl related tip but honestly I'm just I'm not that into it this year as long as the red team wins. I'll be good instead dead. I'm going to wrap up my miniseries tribute to Kobe. Bryant that I started in hip three seventy seven. One of the main reasons I wanted to do this is because of how important legacy clearly was to Kobe. He talked about it a lot. And I can't tell you how much I connected with this particular quote. This comes from from part of a short segment that Kobe did on CNBC. And I'll have it linked to the full clip for you. At daily sales dot tips forward slash. Three seventy nine. Here's what he said playing basketball. The focus is always on winning winning championships winning championships winning championships now championships coming go right. He's going to be another team. That was another championship championship. Another player that with another MVP award but if you really want to create something that lasts generations you have to help inspire the next generation right and they treat something that generation will inspire the one behind them right and that's when you create something forever and that's what's most beautiful again. I can't tell you how much this resonated with me. As as I think about the sales success community in fact let me take this same idea and apply it to sales and see if it resonates with you being in sales. The focus is always on winning. Winning deals winning deals. Winning deals now deals come and go. There's going to be another competitor. That wins another deal. Another reseller that gets to the top of the leaderboard but if you really want to create something that lasts generations you have to help. Inspire the next generation and they create create something great and then that generation will inspire the one behind them right. And that's when you create something forever and that's what's most beautiful. Kobe clearly clearly inspired the next generation in so many ways. I hope you and I can work together through this show and this community to inspire the next generation of true sales professionals. Thanks for listening and come back tomorrow for another great sales tip.
