It's not the load that breaks you down - it's the way you carry it.

Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.

Ability is what you're capable of doing.

Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

Nothing will work unless you do.

Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

Winners never quit and quitters never win.

 image quote by John Wooden

Don't let yesterday take up too much of today.

Don't mistake activity for achievement.

Winning means you're willing to go longer, work harder, and give more than anyone else.

When all is said and done, more is said than done.

Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.

The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination.

Without self-discipline, success is impossible, period.

 image quote by John Wooden

Don't let making a living prevent you from making a life.

Seek opportunities to show you care. The smallest gestures often make the biggest difference.

The most powerful leadership tool you have is your own personal example.

Success is based upon a spiritual quality, a power to inspire others.

Winning takes talent, to repeat takes character.

Show me someone who has done something worthwhile, and I'll show you someone who has overcome adversity.

Motivation is simple. You eliminate those who are not motivated.

 image quote by Vince Lombardi

It's not whether you get knocked down, It's whether you get up.

Don't tell your problems to people: eighty percent don't care;

and the other twenty percent are glad you have them.

If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything.

I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes.

First become a winner in life. Then it's easier to become a winner on the field.

Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.

The secret to success is good leadership, and good leadership is all about making the lives of your team members or workers better.

A champion needs a motivation above and beyond winning.

 image quote by John Wooden

When opportunity comes, it is too late to prepare.

Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out.

Consider the rights of others before your own feelings, and the feelings of others before your own rights.

Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.

It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up.

Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.

Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is.

 image quote by John Wooden

Don't let what you can't do stop you from doing what you can do.

Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.

Sports do not build character. They reveal it.

Some of us will do our jobs well and some will not, but we will all be judged by only one thing -- the result.

You prove your worth with your actions, not with your mouth.

The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.

Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.

Listen if you want to be heard.

Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.

Run for daylight.

Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.

It isn't what you do, but how you do it.

If you can get them all together, you have a fist. That's how I want you to play.

 image quote by John Wooden

Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.

You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.

Shouda, coulda, and woulda won't get it done.

If you burn your neighbors house down, it doesn't make your house look any better.

The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.

Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it.

A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment.

 image quote by Tom Landry

I've learned that something constructive comes from every defeat.

If what you did yesterday seems big, you haven't done anything today.

Practice does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.
