Is there a prescriptive recipe for success? Is there a pattern to follow that will assure the big win?
“Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to become the best of which you are capable” – John Wooden.
I used John Wooden pyramid as self test, an assessment. I tried to assess myself whether I follow proven practices for success or not. For each topic I’ve identified post I’ve published that relate. Assess yourself too. Are you on track?
“Success travels in the company of very hard work. There is no trick, no easy way”.
“Strive to build a team filled with camaraderie and respect comrades-in-arms”
“Be true to yourself. Be true to those you lead.”
“Have utmost concern what’s right rather than who’s right”
“Your energy and enjoyment, drive and dedication will stimulate and greatly inspire others”
“Control of your organization begins with control of yourself. Be disciplined.”
“Constantly be aware and observing. Always seek to improve yourself and the team.”
“Make a decision! Failure to act is often the biggest failure of all.”
“Stay the course. When thwarted try again; harder, smarter. Persevere relentlessly”
“Ability may get you to the top, but character keeps you there – mental, moral, and physical”
“What a leader learns after you’ve learned it all counts most of all.”
- Team Spirit
“The star of the team is the team ‘We’ supersedes ‘me’.”
“Be yourself. Don’t be thrown off be events whether good or bad.”
“The strongest steel is well-founded self-belief. It is earned, not given.”
- Competitive Greatness
“Perform at your best when your best is required. Your best is required each day.”
