Become Who You Can

Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming. – John Wooden

One of the things I love about John Wooden is his focus on 1) fundamentals (/habits) and 2) doing the best you can, irrespective of those around.

The quote above is so important in understanding how to be successful, in a sustainable way.

It’s telling, at least for me, that when asked my greatest fear, I once answered “Not becoming who I could be.”

Telling because, the inverse of that fear is the great satisfaction and peace of mind that comes from doing your best, learning and growing and being the best – truly authentic – version of yourself
