Defining Success By: Coach John Wooden-Part #4

As I developed the principles that I would eventually use in my Pyramid, I researched what others had said about success. I came across one definition that illustrated the pursuit of success with a ladder. The idea of a ladder made me think of a pyramid. in expanding my definition of success, I decided to use building blocks of personal qualities. When we build from a wide foundation upwards to an apex, we end up with a pyramid. Thus, the idea for the Pyramid of Success was born.

It took many years to settle upon the makeup I now use in the Pyramid. Many times I altered the content and location of specific building blocks--except for the cornerstones of the foundation (industriousness and enthusiasm) and the qualities at the top (faith and patience). These four principles have never changed. I'm content with the Pyramid as it is presented in this book.

Today, in sports and in most areas of life, many people adopt a win-at-all-costs stance. Our media and popular culture bolster this approach. However, as you will see, much of what I teach takes a different slant. I maintain that there is no end to living a win-at-all-costs life and, when we follow this course, we find that we have no peace of mind.

What I offer here are the keys to obtaining peace of mind that is the direct result of the self-satisfaction achieved when you know that you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.
