Summer Success Series: Cherish Your Coach!

Nothing can speed your path to success than a really good coach.   Someone who cares about your success.   Who’ll tell you the truth.   Who’ll give you wisdom.

Some of your coaches will be right there with you, in person, maybe even in your same company or business.

Others will be virtual — coaching you through their books, CDs, and DVDs.

You’ll need both to win.

One of the best and most impactful coaches ever is the now late, John Wooden.   After years of inspiring countless athletes, business people, and others to live with character and achieve their best, Coach John Wooden died on Friday evening at 99 years old.

Here are just 10 of his most famous quotes that have touched the lives and hearts of many:

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.

You can’t let praise or criticism get to you. It’s a weakness to get caught up in either one.
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.
Consider the rights of others before your own feelings, and the feelings of others before your own rights.
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.
It’s not so important who starts the game but who finishes it.

Coach Wooden also left us with the most amazing blessing — his Pyramid of Success.   I hope it blesses you as it has so many others:

Thank you, Coach Wooden for the legacy you’ve left behind.   We’ll do you proud!


Note:   I personally believe that it’s a leader’s responsibility to provide an environment where people can succeed.  My partners and I have made that commitment and have been providing that environment for years.   The success stories are great.   And we’re helping many right now to realize their highest levels of achievement ever.

If you’ve been looking for a place where you can get the knowledge you need to succeed, access quality coaching with integrity, and have a genuine opportunity to win — we need to talk right away.
