One of the elite superstars in the NBA, Russell Westbrook continues to push the limits and prove to the world that he really should be considered in the talks with the biggest names in basketball with the likes of Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose and team-mate Kevin Durant. His skill set and talent are clearly up to par, his numbers can often match, but his mindset, beliefs and ambition to be great give us a much clearer indication as to why he's never done trying to prove the critics wrong.
1.) Be committed to growth, and driven to succeed:
"I'm never satisfied. I'm always trying to get better and learn from my mistakes."
2.) Have a limitless mindset:
"I say, 'Why not' to everything."
3.) Be non-conforming and authentic:
"I'm confident in some of the things that I wear, regardless of what other people are wearing."
4.) Take a leap of faith:
"There's no reason to hold yourself back and say you can't do something in life unless you go for it and try to do it."
5.) Live and excel in every moment:
"Every day when I get on the floor I give it my all and play because you never know what tomorrow holds."
6.) Prove your great and forget about the naysayers:
"I've always had to prove myself to people growing up. I had to show them that I could do this and I could do that and paying no mind to what the critics said."
7.) Have role models to be inspired by:
"Magic Johnson was my favourite player growing up."
