Success is peace of mind...

John Wooden, perhaps the best basketball coach ever, said, "Success is peace of mind, a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming, and not just in a physical way: seek first the Kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be yours as well."

There are a large number of definitions of success. John Wooden has given us one of the best: The peace of mind that comes from having a deep inner faith, from knowing you gave it your all, from having no regrets, given your situation.
How many of us can claim this peace of mind?

How joyous, how successful, would you be if you gave your ALL in your


your career...

your business...

your physical health...

and your emotional self-control?

What would happen if you put forth your best, more consistently and more frequently?
Today’s tip: Catch yourself every time you find yourself putting forth your best effort doing anything from washing the dishes to parenting to working.

Remember, all truth must proceed through three stages before it is acknowledged as true. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Finally, it is accepted as self-evident. [Thanks to Schopenhauer.]

Give it your best today.

One day at a time.

One hour at a time.

One minute at a time.

Give it your all. No regrets.
