John Wooden - A Source of Endless Inspiration

While each year I begin by introducing my students to the Pyramid of Success created by John Wooden, it is his seven point creed that tends to have the most impact on students in getting them focused on the importance of maximizing each moment of each day.
Passed down from his father these points still ring true, no matter the time or place.   How simple yet true our own lives could be if we could find a way to live our lives under these guidelines.

John Wooden's  Seven Point Creed  
  • Be true to yourself.
  • Make each day your masterpiece.
  • Help others.
  • Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible.
  • Make friendship a fine art.
  • Build a shelter against a rainy day.
  • Pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day.
