Reputation is what people think about you. Character is what you really are. 6:50 never be late. Be neat and clean. Start on time and leave on time. Not one word of profanity. 8:30 Never criticize a team mate, that is a coaches job. 9:12 he shows his pyramid. The top is faith and patience. trust things will work out as they should if you do what you should. 11:53 a set of 3 from dad. 1 Don't whine 2 Don't complain 3 Don't make excuses. Do what your doing to the best of your ability.

I live 3 or 4 miles away from his childhood home. I often ride my bike out there and ponder on the idea that 80 years ago he was looking at the same fields and sky as I am at that very moment. He is an example that greatness can come from anywhere and anyone. Hard work is necessary no matter how easy something comes to you.

I lived in Encino and on the weekends my parents would take me to the local Winchell's Donuts and Mr. Wooden would be their each Saturday morning. I was told who he was but it didn't resonate with me until I went to UCLA for college in the early 90s. I wish I had the appreciation for him when I had seen him so I could have talked to him. What a bright wonderful human being.

Tim Duffey - that's a broad statement. In what way were they shallow? This man was a teacher first. He stuck to principles. A lot of great people came out of his program. He didn't lose sight of the fact that you had to help these young adolescent minds transcend to maturity of men. It was bigger than sport. Not what today's "businessman coaches" do

Get real. Nearly all of his players graduated from a very demanding university. Many went on to great success in numerous professions. FYI his highest salary at UCLA was $36,000, not very much even if adjusted for inflation. His accomplishments were critically important to those around him.

It seems after all there IS something to be gained by memorizing things. As a former teacher, I can tell you memorization is something frowned on by today's education "experts." I think Coach Wooden has fairly well demonstrated that remembering life lessons from one's father and great passages from good writers is something worthy of our time and effort. It seems to have stood him in pretty good stead, I would say.

It's amazing how such an incredibly accomplished man that's in his 90's can recite values he lived by to earn those accomplishments that were all given to him by his father. I'm sure his dad was a great man, and it goes to show just how powerful of an impact you have as a father/mother and how much you shape who the adult your child ends up becoming. I'm now 25 and see many people my age with young children and I wish they would realize this

There are many factors in achieving success. These include: Taking control of your health. Learning about the power of your mind. Following the path of people who have already done what you plan to do. One place I discovered which combines these is the Magic Progress Shortcut (google it if you're interested) without a doubt the best course on success that I have ever seen. look at this unbelievable site.

As an Oregon Duck, I hated UCLA basketball, but I know a man of honor when I see one. Coach Wooden was one of a kind, a man of great integrity and determination. Ask Kareem or Walton (and anybody else he coached and mentored) about Coach Wooden and they will sing his praises for hours on end. The results of his philosophy are apparent in both college basketball and life.

I am amazed to see John Wooden had a Ted Talk; I had no idea he spoke for the organization. There are no words to describe how much I look up to my great grandfather, and I wish I was old enough to understand his philosophies from childhood. As I age, I imagine his inspirational beliefs will become more vivid to me. I miss him, and always will; wishing today I could have had an adult (man to man) conversation about life.

I was blessed to spend some time with Coach. My recruiting trip to UCLA was during BB season. The Sports Information Dept., and whoever else thought I should sit next to Coach in Pauley for a nationally televised game. He had an aura, a peace, a serenity about him. Instant comfort. He walked the walk, you could feel it in your soul. A true blessing to spend some time with Coach Wooden. He’s the real deal and an unbending, unquestionable man who walked the walk. I had others who were so special they radiated, but only so many who’s greatness radiated and made you better just with their presence. Jack Nicklaus and Larry Nelson were two others for me. You find others who’s presence makes you better- don’t let go. They’re gifts. Take advantage of those opportunities, whether their teachers, athletes, coaches, industry leaders or the best damn garbageman n town- it takes a team. Surround yourself with those who make you strive to be a better person. FWIW. ❤

This man is one of the few I believe to have the keys to the "Ft. Knox" of plain-spoken American wisdom. The effect he had on his students and players was so profound that I've seen interviews with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Keith Wilkes and Bill Walton where they literally can repeat all of his lessons verbatim. We're finally getting closer to "Lead by putting others First" "Earned not Entitled" and the most important one: CHARACTER MATTERS. RIP Coach....

He was the Bruin coach when I was there and Walton and I shared a class where he once tried to copy from me. My wife and I had season tickets for UCLA Basketball and football and we didn't miss a game. I had the pleasure of watching his last championship where he didn't have the best team yet won. And I was at Pualley for his send off, a sad but great night. This was a great man in every stage of a man's life. The Wizzard of Westwood was one of a kind and I was there to share in his magic.

Every so often I manage to discover a presentation on you tube which is completely inspirational. This was such an example . I had not heard of this American but his non stop outpouring of belief in people, his demonstration of personal integrity as well as a personal charisma untainted by cynicism and negativity, reminded me of certain men and women who exercise human gifts at the level of something called Amazing Grace. They reassure us of that wonderful quote, 'when men an women are fully alive and fully human, there is the glory of God'. These people remind us that we can all be 'the best that we can be'. Isn't that what makes our world a fabulous place to be in and life really worth living?
