Pyramid of Success by Coach John Wooden

If you have heard of Coach John Wooden, you know about his Pyramid of Success: you can read more here

He has so many pearls of wisdom and wanted to include a few of my faves for you:

  • Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who’ll argue with you.
  • Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.
  • It takes time to create excellence; if it could be done quickly, more people would do it.
  • Never mistake activity for achievement.
  • If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?
  • Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
  • Winning takes talent; to repeat takes character.
  • Earn the right to be proud and confident.
  • Never make excuses. Your friends don’t need them and your foes believe them.
  • Never try to be better than someone else. Learn from others, and try to be the best you can be. Success is the byproduct of that preparation.
  • It is what you learn after you know it that counts.
