When Coach John Wooden graduated from eighth grade, his father gave him a handwritten card and said, "Son, try to live up to this." On the card, his father had written seven simple yet profound life principles: Be true to yourself Help others Make friendship a fine art Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible Make each day your masterpiece Build a shelter against a rainy day by the life you live Give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day These principles were the key to Coach Wooden's greatness--and his goodness. Through powerful stories and pithy advice, this book shares the wisdom that made Wooden happy and successful. This inspirational and conversational book, now in trade paper, will encourage, challenge, and motivate readers to build these principles into their own lives.
