I am reading this one right now. Doing a little bit of long overdue psychological rehabilitation.
I am getting some help from the mortal man known as John Wooden who was made immortal by his accomplishments in a job where he was called Coach John Wooden.
This book is the reason why I came upon such unexpected inspiration to create a Mother's Day poem for my wife on her first Mother's Day.
I had no idea that this book would contain poetry. It's not Williams Wordsworth, but I find it to be a profound discovery when a man such as Coach John Wooden along with co-writer Steve Jamison, decides to speak to the world using poetry of their own and poems from others that have inspired them. It's completely unexpected.
One very small section describes what Coach Wooden says about #trust. To paraphrase from page 16:
A man has the choice of living his life by trusting or by doubting. Choose trust. Because it is the higher form of existence. Living in doubt of others is easier and a lower form of existence.
I would like to add that because the business world run by humans and unfortunately since it is filled with betrayals and backstabbing, that if someone has broken your trust, then you owe it to yourself to protect yourself against another loss if it is within your control.
And that brings me to another huge theme of this book that pervades the lives of certain people who have a knack at life: you can't control how other people react, but you have 100% control of how you react to what happens to you in this world.
