Today we continue the series discussing quotes in support of the building blocks of John Wooden's "Pyramid of Success." We are into block #6, and it's the first block in the second tier of the pyramid. This one is devoted to a quality that is critical to any success that we are seeking - Self-Control.
Another term for this is discipline. You must have discipline and self-control to handle the variety of elements that will get thrown at you on your road to success. If you allow yourself to be swayed by your emotions, you will have too many peaks and valleys. Stay focused on the moment and don't fall for the big ups and downs along the way.
You will hear four quotes in today's episode, one from Wooden and three from others. All will help to explain the importance and impact of self-control and discipline for success in any type of endeavor.
