Five Steps to Achieving Success

Never try to be better than someone else, always learn from someone else and never cease trying to be the best you can be.”–John Wooden

I’ve learned that success does not come to those who wait for it; success comes to those who take action. It is something that can be easily attainable as long as you are determined to get it.

Here are our five steps to achieving success:

  1. Set a goal
  2. Stay committed to achieving your goal
  3. Do not be afraid to ask for help
  4. Learn from others
  5. Never give up

In the inspiring TEDTalk video below, the former basketball coach for UCLA, John Wooden, redefines success and urges us all to pursue the best in ourselves. Wooden shares the values and life lessons he passed to his players, emphasizing success that’s about much more than winning.
