The Mamba Mentality For Fatherhood

You will learn how to utilize the championship principles that Kobe used on the court to build championship families and children.

Kobe Bryant had a goal of consistent self-improvement. His aim was to pursue the highest potential in life and constantly create a better version of himself. Dr. Dent will serve as your coach for Dads Who Win!


The five principles Kobe highlights in his book are:

Honesty builds trust. Being honest with yourself is key to growth.

Detachment allows us to get ahead of defeat. Never get attached to success or failure. Be ready to move beyond the moment.
Maintaining a positive attitude with positive outcomes.
Kobe maintained a strong emotion towards achieving his goals. Faith and fear are both emotions. Which are you most passionate toward?
Never back down even when a “no” has been given. Never let your opponent think you are afraid to go after what you know you deserve.
