Inspirational 7 Keys to Life

13 10 2010

The late John Wooden was a great person and a great coach.  There are books and books that highlight his talents and life.  One thing that I’ve come across that I particularly enjoyed was something that came from his dad.  Joshua Wooden gave a young John “7 keys to life” that since reading, I have tried to apply to my own life.

  1. Be true to yourself
  2. Help others
  3. Make each day your masterpiece
  4. Drink deeply from good books – especially the Bible
  5. Make friendship a fine art
  6. Build shelter against a rainy day (faith in God)
  7. Pray for guidance and counsel and give thanks for your blessings each day

Really like the last one. Sounds like Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.
