One of John Wooden’s Last Appearances
Definition of Success
John Wooden at TED Talks.
Not the attainment of prestige. So Wooden says that success comes from what you have control.
“Peace of mind from self satisfaction to make the best effort of which you are capable”
“Reputation is what you are perceived to be, character is who you are.”
One of his favorite poems that shaped his teaching, “No written word no spoken plea can teach our youth of what they should be, nor all the books on the shelves it is what the teachers are themselves.”
