Living By Your Values and Goals

Many people go through life blaming others for their own failings. Coach John Wooden of UCLA taught his basketball players to take responsibility and work hard to change any dysfunctional behavior or any behavior that was getting in the way of pursuing their personal values and goals. One of the many famous Woodisms was: “Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.” It is important to identify your personal values and goals, and then fully commit to living your life in a way that is in alignment with those values and goals. Living with a high level of intentionality will not only greatly improve your odds of succeeding at your life endeavors, it will help you live authentically and it will improve your state of wellbeing.
