John Wooden: Coaching for people, not points

One of the poems he recites;

“No written word, no spoken plea,
can teach our youth what they should be,
nor all the books on all the shelves,
it’s what the teachers are themselves.”

His definition of success;

“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.”
