As a new college basketball season gets ready to open, it seems right to hear the words and wisdom of the best coach of all time, John Wooden.

Preferring the title of "teacher" over that of "coach," Wooden's insight far exceeds the X's and O's that helped him and his UCLA teams win 10 NCAA championships in a 12-year period.

Wooden gave this talk in February of 2001 in Monterrey, California. He was 90 years old at the time.

In this session, he shares his unique definition of success and a variety of meaningful life lessons that relate to anyone and everyone, not just the sports fan.

You will be glad for and better for the investment of the 17 minutes and 37 seconds it takes to watch this!
