Redefining the secrets of success, UCLA basketball coach John Wooden shares an inspiring take on how to succeed in life. This compelling conversation is one that encourages individuals to always pursue their personal best in life.

Quoting his father's wisdom, Wooden's definition of success is piece of mind, procured through self-satisfaction based on giving one's personal best. When one gives all that they can offer, that is all that can be asked or expected of them.

Giving one's best is equal to success and this can only be achieved with optimism and patience. Though individuals often hope things will turn out for the best, Wooden states that we often fail to follow the steps that make these hopes an ultimate reality.
