Coach Wooden just visited an elementary school in my neighborhood a couple days ago…here are some nuggets of wisdom that he shared.
“Sports do not build character. They reveal it.”
“Be quick, but don’t hurry.”
“Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do the best of which you are capable.”
“Nothing will work unless you do.”
“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.”
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
“If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.”
