John Wooden’s Seven-Point Creed

When Coach Wooden was 12 years old and graduating from a country grade school, his father gave him this creed – a creed he has tried to live by ever since.

Making the Most of One’s Self
Be true to yourself.
Make each day your masterpiece.
Help others.
Drink deeply from good books.
Make friendship a fine art.
Build a shelter agains a rainy day.
Pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day.
