I was also inspired to write this book to help others reach and surpass their potential. And I knew I would do both the right way, the Wooden way, by identifying the fundamentals and then executing at the highest level possible. John Wooden will go down as one of the greatest leaders of all time. Certainly, his form of leadership involved teaching and motivating others to follow his lead. Coach inspired his players to greatness, not just on the court, but off of it as well. Many give the coach credit for teaching them not only how to lead others but also how to lead themselves.

A leading cause of depression, lack of a life vision is quite common. Often-times, individuals who have tried every medication in the book still end up walking into my office full of suffering. That suffering is their body’s alarm system notifying them that they need to make some changes. The cure cannot be found in a pill bottle. The act of defining the win by creating a specific, actionable life vision-of-the-win can begin to produce relief almost immediately. A Cy Young Award–winning major league pitcher told me this story about how not having purpose and priorities early in his career impacted his life: “When I was a kid, all this success came easy to me.

But in the end, both Maxine and the Cy Young winner had to summon up their own courage and dedicate their own time to design their own scoreboards for life by defining purpose and priorities. Likewise, your decision will take courage and time. So you begin your executive toughness journey by dedicating a few minutes to work on these basics. Purpose It doesn’t matter if you are a CEO of a Fortune 100 company, a stay-at-home mom, a major league baseball player, a college student, or a gas station attendant: the truth is that until you identify your purpose in life, you will never reach your full potential, because you won’t have defined for yourself what that potential could be.
