Following my Work Hard post, I wanted to share some personal photos I took of Kobe Bryant at the EIF's Cancer Research Fund. I took these photos back in 2013, when I was working with On The Red Carpet. It was a great event, and my very first time seeing Kobe Bryant in person. 

Kobe Bryant is the shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. 

My impression of Kobe was- he was charismatic and spoke with confidence. I rarely get star struck, but Kobe definitely impresses me with his ability to overcome and remain focused.

He reminds me that staying focused on your craft, and ignoring the naysayers is part of the game. 

Stay positive and keep moving. Don't get caught up in what others think about you or say about you. Everyone has an opinion, but the opinion you have about yourself will be the only one that counts when striving for success. 

Working it !
