永遠懷念籃球傳奇科比·布萊恩:如果你害怕失敗,那你很有可能會失敗

科比·布萊恩,安息吧,願你在天堂一路走好,我還是不敢相信,但只好接受現實。謝謝您給予大家一場一場精采又難忘的球賽🏀

Kobe Bryant 生涯平均25.4分、生涯總得分高達32482分,在歷史排名為第三。擁抱5枚冠軍戒指、1屆年度MVP、、2屆FMVP、4屆明星賽MVP、11屆年度第一隊、9屆年度防守第一隊、2屆聯盟得分王、2屆奧運金牌加冕,他幾乎包辦所有的榮耀,他是史上籃球界傳奇人物之一。

事實上,科比的起跑點一點也不順遂,從剛開始不被看好的高中小子,現已成為現在我們所看到的傳奇球星,這全都不是偶然,也非僥倖。他有獨特的個性和處事的態度;他忠於自己的籃球夢想;他從不畏挫折和困難,堅持到底。雖然再看不到你在球場上發光發亮,但希望學生們遇上困難或身心交瘁之時,可以回顧一下Kobe 的經典名句,也許會對你有莫大幫助。

1: I focus on one thing and one thing only – that’s trying to win as many championships as I can.
「 我專注於一件事,而且只有這件事 –那就是盡我所能地贏到越多冠軍。」

2: I’m here. I’m not going anywhere. No matter what the injury – unless it’s completely debilitating – I’m going to be the same player I’ve always been. I’ll figure it out. I’ll make some tweaks, some changes, but I’m still coming.
「 我就在這,哪兒也不去,不管受了什麼傷 — 除非我完全衰弱 — 我還是會一直是像以前一樣的球員。我會看著辦,我會做出一些調整、一些改變,但我還是來了。」

3: I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I’m like, “My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don’t have it. I just want to chill.” We all have self-doubt. You don’t deny it, but you also don’t capitulate to it. You embrace it.
「 我會懷疑自己;我會缺乏安全感;我會恐懼失敗。我會在那幾個夜晚,在我喜歡的球場上現身時,想著「我的背很痛;我的腳受傷;我的膝蓋受傷。我沒有辦法了,我只想放鬆。」我們都曾自我懷疑,你不需要否認它,但你也不能夠向它屈服。你要做的是去擁抱它。」

4: I’m playing against great players, playing against the best in the world. The competition – that’s what I’ve always wanted.
我正在跟偉大的球員們打球,和世界上最好的球員們競爭。這比賽 — 就是我一直想要的。

5: I can’t relate to lazy people. We don’t speak the same language. I don’t understand you. I don’t want to understand you.
「 我無法了解懶惰的人,因為我們說的是不同的語言。我不了解懶惰的人,我也不想去了解。」

6. I don’t want to be the next Michael Jordan, I only want to be Kobe Bryant.
「 我不想當下一個麥可喬丹,我只想當科比布萊恩。」

7. I’m chasing perfection.
「 我追求完美。」

8. Can I jump over two or three guys like I used to? No. Am I as fast as I used to be? No, but I still have the fundamentals and smarts. That’s what enables me to still be a dominant player. As a kid growing up, I never skipped steps. I always worked on fundamentals because I know athleticism is fleeting.
「 我還能像以前一樣跳躍時跳過兩三個人嗎?不,我不行。我還能像我以前跑得一樣快嗎?不,我不行。但我還保有我的基本功跟打球的智慧,這也是讓我能一直成為主要球員的原因。成長過程中,我從來沒有跳過任何一個步驟,一直按部就班,因為我知道,運動員的生涯是短暫的。」

9. I’ll do whatever it takes to win games, whether it’s sitting on a bench waving a towel, handing a cup of water to a teammate, or hitting the game-winning shot.
「 我願意做任何能夠贏得比賽的事,即使只是坐在板凳上擰毛巾、遞茶水給隊員,或投出致勝一球。」

10.I draw from the crowd a lot.
「 我從人群學習、得到很多借鏡。」

11.Everything negative — pressure, challenges — is all an opportunity for me to rise.
「 每件負面的事 – 壓力、挑戰 – 都是一個讓我提升的機會。」

12.My parents are my backbone. Still are. They’re the only group that will support you if you score zero or you score 40.
「 我的父母是我的支柱,現在仍然如此。無論你得的分數是多少,他們都會支持你。」

13. If you’re afraid to fail, then you’re probably going to fail.
「 如果你害怕失敗,那你很有可能會失敗。」

14.The most important thing is you must put everybody on notice that you’re here and you are for real. I’m not a player that is just going to come and go. I’m not a player that is going to make an All-Star team one time, two times. I’m here to be an all-time great. Once I made that commitment and said, ‘I want to be one of the greatest ever’, then the game became everything for me.
「 最重要的是,你必須讓身邊每一個人知道你是玩真的。我不是一個只是在這裡來來去去的球員,我不是一個只會入選全明星賽一兩次而已的球員,我來這裡,是要成為一個能夠跨時代的偉大球星,一旦我做了承諾,說「我想成為有史以來最偉大的」,那麼這場比賽就成為了我的一切。」

15. There’s a choice that we have to make as people, as individuals. If you want to be great at something, there’s a choice you have to make. We all can be masters at our craft, but you have to make a choice. What I mean by that is, there are inherent sacrifices that come along with that. Family time, hanging out with friends, being a great friend, being a great son, nephew, whatever the case may be. There are sacrifices that come along with making that decision.
「 人生中有很多我們要選擇的事。如果你想精通某件事情,你必須做出一個選擇。我們都可以在我們的領域成為大師,但你必須做出選擇。我的意思是每一個我們的決定都會伴隨著犧牲。和家人相處、和朋友出去玩,身為一個好朋友,一個好兒子、侄子,依據情況而定。這些決定都會伴隨著其他事情的犧牲。」

16. Are you willing to push the right buttons even if it means being perceived as the villain? … I’d rather be perceived as a winner than a good teammate. I wish they both went hand in hand all the time but that’s just not reality. … I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success.
「 即使會被眾人當成惡棍,你還會做對的決定嗎?….我寧願被認為是一個贏家而非一個好隊友。我希望能同時兼顧兩者,但是這是不實際的…. 我和那些懶惰的人 ─ 那些只會將自己沒有成功的原因怪罪於他人的人─ 並沒有任何共同點。」
