Wooden’s Success principle # 1 Having a strong foundation.

Wooden developed a Pyramid of Success with the 5 block foundation being:

  •       Industriousness
  •       Friendship
  •       Loyalty
  •      Cooperation
  •      Leadership

For us to have a successful business or a successful life, having a strong foundation is a key.  Just as when I practiced the martial arts, the strong foundation is important. For the 10 years I studied, we continued to work on our stances. Every sucessful technique started from a proper stance.

Success in business and life is the same. The foundations I feel are keys to success are:

  • Vision
  • Mission
  • Value statements

If you have defined these, and keep them in front of you, they will be invaluable guides that will keep you focused and will help you make better decisions.

Standards, values and attitudes were important to me. I wanted them to matter to people I taught.
