Yesterday, I had the great joy of watching the Milwaukee Bucks win the NBA Championship, led by the extraordinary Giannis Antetokounmpo.

My oldest son is a big Bucks and Giannis fan, so to share this experience with him was very special.

Giannis is an amazing young man, having been brought up in Greece the son of Nigerian immigrants and the way he has remained humble and family oriented throughout his burgeoning career is inspirational and impressive.

As a basketball fan, I have watched his game develop to an incredible level due to his work ethic and drive, and he is to be congratulated for his remarkable achievements.

But what can we learn from a 6’10” athletic beast who just managed to score 50 points along with 14 rebounds and 5 blocks to win the NBA title?

Giannis once said, “I’m gonna keep getting better, keep getting better, and one day, everything’s gonna pay off.”

There’s the message.

It’s not about talent.

It’s about constant improvement.

It’s about listening and learning.

It’s about bringing that attitude to your work each and every day.

If you do that, eventually, everything’s gonna pay off.
