One of my heroes is legendary basketball coach John Wooden. Below, I’m sharing just four of countless lessons Coach Wooden has taught me through his books.

  1. Foundation of success lies in industriousness with enthusiasm coupled with skill.
  2. Never be afraid to make mistakes. If you are not making mistakes, you are not doing anything.
  3. Young people need models, not critics.
  4. The purpose of criticism should be to correct, improve or change; never to humiliate or embarrass.

Hope you found some wisdom in these lessons as I did.
