The College Football National Championship was a shocker! Well, maybe not to Clemson players and fans, but to Alabama coach Nick Saban and the roll-tide squad who fell short at the end. The sports world will re-watch the game highlights and see that they’re some budding stars in the making.

Lebron James and Serena Williams are already big-time stars with lots of winning moments too. They were recently named AP Male/Female Athletes of the Year. James for the third time, Williams for the fifth. So, if you’re wondering what’s next for them, they give us a preview of 2019, using a review of 2018.

James has been recovering from a groin injury suffered during the Christmas Day game. He doesn’t want to return too soon, making sure that he’s fully mended. In 2018 he got no NBA Championship parade or MVP awards. But his ‘game stats’ were just as impressive in social advocacy and community impact.

The same kinda holds true for Serena who didn’t get to win that coveted 24th grand slam championship. But she did something that few have accomplished by returning to the game after a dicey child birth less than a year earlier. The AP selection group says she got the award for showing perseverance.

Serena recently played a tune-up match in a mixed-doubles game. She’s hoping to get back to her usual ‘passion & fire’ form. For James during his absence, the Lakers coach is hoping that the team can find its mojo while he’s out. James and Williams on and off the court help preview 2019 for how to:

  1. Flex your stuff

During her pre-game warm-up and stretch, Serena was seen holding her child close. It seemed her baby was a little fearful and needed some lovin’. So, in the new year we can break the fear. Just take time to warm-up to how you’ll flex your stuff, bring some hustle-love to your game and stretch yourself in 2019.

  1. Up your game

James is probably spending a lot of time with the team trainers doing things to strengthen the injured muscle. How he plays the game might be about shots and rebounds. But how he ups his game might be about hustle and flow. It’s about getting mind, body and soul to work together and put you on a roll.

  1. Earn your keeps

Downtime from the game for Serena allowed her to grow her family. Downtime for James might also be about how he grows his value with pro sports, his Foundation and other biz enterprises. Sometimes the work you do isn’t just about the 9 to 5, but also how you add value personally, professionally and socially.

  1. Rock your best

James recently re-shared a quote from former ESPN Anchor Stuart Scott who once said “Don’t downgrade your dreams just to fit your reality. Upgrade your convictions to match your destiny.” That might be a good way to describe how they approach their game to amaze at work and rock their best.

The clock is still ticking on James’ return. Fans want to see that magic again. Serena is getting ready for her next grand-slam tournament at the Australian Open. If the review of 2018 serves as a preview of 2019, they’d say you gotta get on up and do what you gotta do to keep it smokin’.  Holla if you with me!

Tip: In order to rock your best and earn your keeps you gotta get on up and do what you gotta do to keep it smokin’.

Dwyane Wade just spent time in Chicago, his old stomping ground, as the newest addition to the NBA Bulls. Page Six says Tyler Perry had some downtime in Denmark at a Beyoncé concert after flying staff members on his jet. For Wade joining the Bulls and Perry traveling in style, checkout how they live large.

Wade said in an ESPN interview “I respect Pat Riley to the fullest for what he’s done in this game, you know, drafting me, when a lot of people didn’t believe I was going to be as great as I’ve become.” As ‘baller & banker’ they share four surprising benefits of turning passion into hustle and hustle into passion.

Perry’s story of going from ‘homeless to honcho’ is known among fans. He’s taken his hustle for Stage Plays and turned it into his own studio passions. Wade spent 13 years with the Miami Heat, turning hoop passion into on-the-court hustle that’s made him a winner. Plus, they keep making deposits into people.

The TLC channel has teamed-up with Perry for a new scripted drama. He’s spreading his wings and building his brand as writer, director and producer. With passion & hustle in the mix there’s a good chance for some bonus moments. That’s to be expected as Wade’s now with the house that Jordan built.

No need to feel sorry for him, he’s got a two-year deal. No need to hate on Perry because he reminds us of how living the dream becomes real. These guys ‘got game’ in bringing excellence to their work. This comes through as they hustle hard. That’s why watching them takes us to a place of excitement and bliss.

Great as he’s become without a doubt. As ‘baller & banker’ they hit it big. Passion into hustle and hustle into feel-right jig.

Perry once homeless for a while. As honcho now top of the pile. A hustle for Stage Plays is his lane. Turned into studio passion gain. Wade after 13 years with the Heat. Moves on to a new beat. Where hoop dreams make him a winner. On-the-court hustle or prime rib dinner. Giving back to those feeling thinner.

TLC channel and Perry in sync. With scripted TV drama their new link. Spreading his wings and reaching higher. Building his brand as producer, director and writer. With passion & hustle in the mix.
