For many people, the drive to succeed is hard to find because it’s the harder path to take and we all want life to be easy. But the leaders of today show that to be successful you must commit yourself and persevere to be successful. Take Kobe Bryant for example. His passion and hunger for success alienated himself from the people around him. His mentality often scared people away from him. But in the end he was successful and was able to delight in his hard work. For years he worked while others played, and in the end he came out on top. All of this happened because of his drive to succeed, and his willingness to dedicate himself to what he did.
