John Wooden on Success

John Wooden, the legendary UCLA basketball coach who knew a thing or two about winning on his way to a record 10 NCAA titles, offers this bit of wisdom:   “Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.”

If you want to break down the game film of your “best life,” it’s simply a series of choices you make:  Committing to do your best from morning to night makes a successful day.  Put together seven of these days and you’ve had a successful week.  Four of those and it’s a successful month;  multiply it by twelve and you’ve had a great year — string those together and, WOW — what a life!

If you find you’ve already given up on making this your “championship season,” let’s start from those choices you make — what is it that keeps you from giving your best effort every day?
