Elevate Your Motivation with 26 of LeBron James’s Greatest Quotes

Lebron James is arguably one of the most criticized NBA superstars in NBA history. In 2010, ESPN aired a live interview titled “The Decision”, where Lebron decided to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and join the Miami Heat.

Many people including, sports analysts, former players, and executives were not happy by how he handled his free agency leading up to the announcement. Despite all of the negativity that surrounded him, he went on to win 2 back-to-back NBA championships with the Miami Heat.

In 2014 when his contract ended, he made the decision to go back to Cleveland and play where his heart is. Lebron is a highly motivated basketball player and wants to be the richest athlete of all time. His focus and mindset is what separates him from other athletes.

Here are 26 of Lebron’s greatest quotes that will elevate your motivation:

1. “I think, team first. It allows me to succeed, it allows my team to succeed.”

2. “You have to be able to accept failure to get better.”

3. “I don’t need too much. Glamour and all that stuff don’t excite me. I am just glad I have the game of basketball in my life.”

4. “There’s that moment every morning when you look in the mirror: Are you committed, or are you not?”

 

Lebron James quotes
 

6. “Every night on the court I give my all, and if I’m not giving 100 percent, I criticize myself.”

7. “Commitment is a big part of what I am and what I believe. How committed are you to winning? How committed are you to being a good friend?”

8. “I always say, decisions I make, I live with them. There’s always ways you can correct them or ways you can do them better. At the end of the day, I live with them.”

9. “Warren Buffet told me, follow your gut. When you have that gut feeling, you have to go with it don’t go back on it.”

10. “Ask me to play, I’ll play. Ask me to shoot, I’ll shoot. Ask me to pass, I’ll pass. Ask me to steal, block out, sacrifice, lead, dominate. Anything! But it’s not just what you ask of me. It’s what I ask of myself.”

11. “I mean, when you grow up in the inner city and you grow up in a single-parent household, that’s – those are humbling times, you know?”

12. “Greatness is defined by how much you want to put into what you do.”

13. “Everywhere I’ve been, I’ve been the best player. I love being a leader, and I love being the best. I just want to get better. It’s not about being cocky or selfish or anything like that. It’s just how I am.”

14. “Once you become a professional athlete or once you do anything well, then you’re automatically a role model. I have no problem being a role model. I love it. I have kids looking up to me and hopefully I inspire these kids to do good things.”

15. “I’ve always been a leader. I’ve always kind of been the tallest person on the team when I was younger but always kind of the smartest. I was ahead of my time. I wasn’t always the oldest, I kind of was the youngest on the team, but, I kind of knew what to do at times.”

16. “I hear that word pressure all the time. There is a lot of pressure put on me, but I don’t put a lot of pressure on myself. I feel if I play my game, it will take care of itself.”

17. “In the next 15 or 20 years, I hope I’ll be the richest man in the world. That’s one of my goals. I want to be a billionaire. I want to get to a position where generation on generation don’t have to worry about nothing.”

18. “It’s hard to win in the league, because every team is good, they got players on their team. A lot harder than high school. It’s competitive, and that’s what I most love about it.”

19. “Sometimes in the past when I played something might make me lose focus, or I would go home after a game where I thought I could have played better and I would let it hang over my head for a long time when it shouldn’t. But now, being a parent, I go home and see my son and I forget about any mistake I ever made or the reason I’m upset. I get home and my son is smiling or he comes running to me. It has just made me grow as an individual and grow as a man.”

 

Lebron James quotes
 

21. “I like criticism. It makes you strong.”

22. “Ever since I was a kid, I was always the winner.”

23. “To be honest, the play that was drawn up, I scratched it. I just told coach, ‘Give me the ball.’ We’re either going to go to overtime or I’m going to win it for us. It was that simple.”

24. “I feel confident because I’m the best player in the world. It’s that simple.”

25. “If you put everything together as far as my mind, my body, my game. If you put everything in one bottle, this is probably the best I’ve been.”

26. “When I have a bad game, it continues to humble me and know that, you know, you still have work to do and you still have a lot of people to impress.”

    “I don’t need too much. Glamour and all that stuff don’t excite me…” Lebron James. Those who succeed in life are focused on what they want from their life not on the results that come from what they do. If we focus on the results of our actions whether they are positive results or a negative results, we will soon forget our true purpose and mission in life. Thank you for your great job.
