Former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, one of the greatest coaches who ever lived, said,, “Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” Wooden was known for stressing excellence to his players and encouraging them to work toward their potential. He never made winning a championship his goal. He focused on the journey, not the destination. Yet his work ethic and focus on the things within his control earned his UCLA teams four undefeated seasons, an eighty-eith-game winning streak, and an incredible ten national championships. No one had ever done that before him, and no one has done it since.
As you move forward on the success journey, you need to remember that what happens in you is more important than what happens to you. You can control your attitudes as you travel on the journey, but you have no control over the actions of others. You can choose what to put on your calendar, but you can’t control today’s circumstances. Unfortunately, the majority of the fear and stress that people experience in life is from things they can do nothing about. Don’t let that happen to you.
“Focus on the things you can do something about today!”
