1Coach Wooden defined success without regard to besting anyone else. Instead, he defined success as “Peace of mind which comes from knowing that you did the best to become the best you are capable of becoming.” He did not speak to his team about winning and losing. Rather, his goal was to have them do their best. He won 10 NCAA basketball titles in 12 years (1964–1975). This editorial is being written as Coach Wooden turned 99 years old on 14 October 2009.
