DO NOT Buy this book unless you are looking for a daily christian devotional...that's what this really is.

This is NOT a typical John Wooden book. It's a really a daily devotional. It's a Jay Carty book with a little John Wooden. DO NOT buy this book if you are not expecting to read it as a devotional with scriptures, bible verses, homework assignments, etc. I was disappointed in the book. Waste of my money.

Success is about the achievement of self not results
2017年1月26日 - (Amazon.com)
It would be easy to say this book is where sports analogies meets scriptural verse but it's not. As Wooden consistently stresses, the pursuit of results in any sport, game or the game of life for that matter is not defined by the score, winning or other such measures. It's about the achievement of your best self, in every endeavour, from that success is assured. A simple read that makes the point beautifully. Wooden like his decades long marriage & even longer life was simply focused on the dedication to being his best, "and let the results take care of themselves."
Great read couldn't put it down

Coach Wooden is the ultimate principle architect. His blueprint for life was developed and refined over a life time. He laid a solid foundation of principles that will support all the other principles. The foundation principles are values that if implemented will set the example and attract others to follow your leadership. The second level are principles of self discipline that when demonstrated consistently show others you are a person who is in control of theirself. The third level are principles of both ability and camaraderie that draw individuals into a close knit team. The fourth level are the keys to the cap stone of competitive greatness. These two building blocks are crucial to individual success and when cultivated are displayed outwardly as sure sign of success. Like any great architect Coach included the mortar that is a necessity to hold the principles together. These mortar principles hold the block principles together because they incorporate deep inner seated values that intertwine and cause the block principles to withstand the test of time.

Great Read That Will Change Your Life

Absolutely love this book. It's spiritually based and has helped me with relationships, job, and so many other areas in my life. A good Bible study tool since it offers scriptures to read at the end of each section. More than I expected to get out of this book. I highly recommend it.
Don't hesitate...this is for you

Reading this now. Worth ever minute invested. The definition of success is as clear and within my control as any definition I've ever read. The building blocks and mortar are the components of the excellence we seek from ourselves. Study of these components can only lead to better character and performance within the team.
