Successful in Every Aspect of Life – Lessons from Legendary Coach John Wooden

Written by C.J. Martin

One week ago, legendary coach John Wooden passed away.  Coach Wooden’s 10 national NCAA basketball championships in a span of 12 years is an untouchable sports accomplishment (no coach has won more than 4 championships since Wooden retired in 1975).  But that accomplishment is only a small piece of what made Wooden great.  He understood life, and what it took to be a success in every aspect of it.  From his timeless “Pyramid of Success” to his Seven Point Creed, to some of his greatest quotes, he does as well as anyone defining the elements of success.

Please take a moment today or this weekend to read and reflect on some of John Wooden’s ideas of success, and to think about how you define “success.”  Below is a 17-minute video of John Wooden speaking about true success, along with a few of my favorite quotes of his.

John Wooden on True Success

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”

“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”

“Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.”

“It isn’t what you do, but how you do it.”

“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.”

“Success is never final; failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts.”
