Thoughts from a great coach

john-wooden-99.jpg

“Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”

“You can’t let praise or criticism get to you. It’s a weakness to get caught up in either one.”

“Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.”

“Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.”

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

“A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment.”

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

John Wooden
