 “Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.”  -John Wooden

 

 

John Wooden was an athlete who played as a guard for the Purdue Boilermakers’ college basketball team in Indiana between 1929 and 1932.  He was known to give his teams short and simple motivational speeches that inspired the players, both on the court and at home.  This tradition expanded beyond his basketball career as onlookers also became inspired by his words, creating a highly-acclaimed legacy that motivated people in business and personal aspects as well.  Wooden realized that people can’t control how things are going to turn out, but they can control how they handle themselves.  By making the best out of a situation, one has the opportunity to gain something positive from the experience.  People who take advantage of this opportunity will walk away from it with something they didn’t have before whereas people that sulk in the experience will walk away with nothing but what they came in with.  Make the best out of the opportunities you are given.
