“Your reputation is what you are perceived to be; your character is what you are.” Do you stop to consider how successful you’ve been in your life? Perhaps more importantly, have you stopped to consider what really is the measure of success?
My father-in-law often says that “success is optional” and how true that is! If you have done the very best you can in any situation, then you have been successful in that area of your life. Outcome is secondary to the quality of effort or perhaps more famously put by Miguel de Cervantes, “the journey is better than the end.” In fact, says Coach, “…you can lose when you outscore and opponent and you can win when an opponent outscores you.”
I invite you to join Coach John Wooden in his spirited and classy consideration of true success.
