Mearsuring Success

It has to go beyond wins and losses. If winning is the sole measure of success then there are an awful lot of losers out here. Only one person can win a race, one team can win a game. Is it really that final and absolute? No way! For me going back to my beginning days of coaching I have always felt that the pursuit of excellence has its own rewards. No one should have to apologize for second place. If they did all in their power to prepare to win and fought a good fight, what more could you ask.

From the great John Wooden
" 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."

Couldn't agree with you more Vern, the pursuit of excellence has it's own rewards.
