Your mind is such a magnificent instrument that science has barely probed the surface of its tremendous power and potential.Occasionally, a rare coach or mentor comes along that has a unique ability to inspire his players to reach their potential.
The legendary coach John Wooden was one of those rare coaches. He used to say, “Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.” Coach Wooden was a master at helping players realize their true potential. He believed when you learn something, you must be quick to implement what you learned.
Applying many of his lessons, several of his players achieved success on the court and later in life beyond their wildest dreams. Coach Wooden led the UCLA Bruins to ten national championships in a twelve year period. During this period his teams won a record 88 consecutive games.
