johnwoodenJohn Wooden was one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time.  During his 12 years of coaching at UCLA, he won 10 national championships.

Wooden’s relationship with his players was far greater than just a coach.  He taught his players valuable life tools to help them not only become good basketball players, but to also become men.  I believe everyone in USANA should learn, and practice, Wooden’s Two Sets of Threes.

In his book entitled, “Wooden, A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections On and Off the Court,” Coach Wooden shares what his father called his “two sets of threes.”  The first set is about honesty…

  • Never lie
  • Never cheat
  • Never steal

The second set of threes was about dealing with adversity:

  • Don’t whine
  • Don’t complain
  • Don’t make excuses

According to Wooden, his dad’s two sets of threes served as a compass for trying to do the right thing and behaving in a proper manner.

Thought for the day– Are you doing all you can to be successful in USANA?

good negotiationsTo many times during a conversation or negotiation I see one party disrespects another.  Nothing gets accomplished because feelings are hurt and pride overtakes common sense and good judgment.  Sometimes this can happen when you are discussing or presenting USANA to a new prospect who just is not getting it.

The best communicators (and USANA Associates) always separate the people from the problem.  While you can and should be passionate about your position, at the same you can and should treat the other person with with respect and dignity.

Thought for the day–  Treat people like you would like to be treated.
