Who It’s For

Developing leaders, developing coaches

We all know every person is unique.

This is why Coach Wooden defined success this way: “Success is peace of mind attained only through self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do the best of which you’re capable.”

After coining his definition of success in 1934, Coach Wooden created a model of success using 25 behaviors and eight suggestions for succeeding.

  1. Fear no opponent. Respect every opponent.
  2. Remember, it’s the perfection of the smallest details that make big things happen.
  3. Keep in mind that hustle makes up for many a mistake.
  4. Be more interested in character than reputation.
  5. Be quick, but don’t hurry.
  6. Understand that the harder you work, the more luck you will get.
  7. Know that valid self-analysis is crucial for improvement.
  8. Remember that there is no substitute for hard work and careful planning. Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
