Pyramid of Success; Third Tier

"Some believed my players were simply in better physical condition than the competition. They may have been, but they also had tremendous mental and emotional conditioning. You must identify your conditioning requirements and then attain them. Without proper conditioning in all areas, you will fall short of your potential. It is impossible to attain and maintain desirable physical condition without first achieving mental and moral condition." ~ John Wooden
"A winner is somebody who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses them to accomplish his goals." ~Larry Bird, Boston Celtics "You have to know what you're doing and be able to do it quickly and properly." ~Coach John Wooden
Coach Wooden on Team Spirit: "This means thinking of others. It means losing oneself in the group for the good of the group. It means being not just willing but eager to sacrifice personal interest or glory for the welfare of all. Team spirit means you are willing to sacrifice personal considerations for the welfare of all. That defines a team player."
