Something to Think About,pt.9

John Wooden was named the greatest coach of all-time in 2009 by The Sporting News.There are not too many people who could provide a convincing argument as to why this recognition isn't warranted.He garnered 600+ wins as coach of the men's UCLA basketball team but this is not the sole reason he received this honour. Wooden had a profound and lasting influence on his players,he stressed character building as much as he did developing their basketball skills. If only we had more coaches like him in the collegiate ranks today.The following is a quote by Coach Wooden:
"Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do."
This sort of reminds me of the earlier post that pertained to negativity. For most,we have a tendency to look at what is lacking in our running instead of considering our strengths.We all underestimate what we can accomplish and need to provide ourselves with daily reminders that our perceived limitations are too often self-imposed.
