What Change Would Have to Take Place?

220px-John_WoodenJohn Wooden said, “Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books – especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.”

You may be wondering who is John Wooden. According to Wikipedia, He coached basketball at UCLA from 1948-1975. He was one of the most revered coaches in basketball. Beloved by his players, among them Kareem Abdul-Habbar. Known for his short and simple inspirational messages to his players. His messages were directed also at how to be a success in life as well as in basketball.

So many times we fail to be true to ourselves. We compromise on things we should stand firm on and stand firm on the things we should compromise on. Perhaps we should spend time on determining what is being true to ourselves.

John Wooden determined the importance in life as you can see from his quote. Maybe starting today, we could take that quote and put it to work in our lives.

If you put his quote to work in your life, what change would have to take place today for you to have his words become part of you?
