When John Wooden graduated from grammar school, his Dad, Joshua Wooden, gave him the Seven Point Creed. And from what I’ve read and heard, he passed this creed along to all his students and players.

Be true to yourself.
Make each day your masterpiece.
Help others.
Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible.
Make friendship a fine art.
Build a shelter against a rainy day.
Pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day.

You can watch and listen to Coach Wooden share this by clicking on Seven Point Creed in the Favorite Maxims section of the official Coach Wooden website.

While there, you can also click on The Two Sets of Threes which Joshua Wooden also gave his sons and Coach Wooden passed these along to students and players.

Don’t lie*
Don’t cheat
Don’t steal
* His dad always said that if you don’t lie, you won’t have to remember what you said.

Don’t whine
Don’t complain
Don’t make excuses – just do the best you can
