On Wednesday, LeBron James shared an inspirational quote on his Instagram page, one that appears to be a reflection of just how hard James works to be one of the best basketball players in the world.
The quote comes from Conor McGregor, the UFC featherweight champion, and is a fantastic perspective on what it takes to be successful. It is also a reminder that most of the all-time great athletes have some things in common: they work a lot harder than most fans realize and they are obsessed with being successful.

James shared the quote with the caption “I’m obsessed! Straight up #StriveForGreatness #AndThatsWhyImNeverSatisfied.”
