Coach John Wooden’s 7-Point Creed: #3: Help others

Coach Wooden’s third point in his 7-point creed is to help others. When you think about helping others, what comes to mind? As a coach, one of my passions is to help others grow and accomplish goals in areas of their life that are important for them. I love to see people shine as they are being true to themselves and in their own element — where they are living in a space they feel confident and purposeful with what they are doing.

There are many people in our world today that are facing challenges in their lives. It’s been shown that a simple act of kindness goes a long way. These acts of kindness can take little effort on our part. A smile. A thank you. An encouragement. A conversation with presence. A simple question – “how can I help you?”. How do you show your kindness?

When you think about it, being a service to others is also a way for us to grow. There have been many studies that suggest that one way you can pull yourself up from the doldrums is by helping someone else out. There is joy that comes from helping others. You are connecting with someone on a very human and individual level.
