It’s Not All About The Presents

I came across this quote today from coach John Wooden and it seems really appropriate for this time of year when we’re busy purchasing and exchanging so many material possessions.

“Webster indicates that success is the accumulation of material possessions.  I don’t think so.
I think Success is a peace of mind which can only be attained through self-satisfaction…
knowing that you’ve made the effort to do the best of which you’re capable.
We have no control over an opponent, but we should have control over ourselves.
All we can do is live up to our potential.  It takes hard work, enthusiasm.
You need to be conditioned and know what you’re doing.  You need good skills.
You must have consideration for others and lastly, You need a competitive spirit.
You can’t be afraid of a tough situation.   You must enjoy it.
And realize that the most difficult tasks bring the most satisfaction.”
