First, winning to me is a success, no matter what, I would rather have a win than a loss any day. Second, a successful person to me is Johnny Bench, he is and has been one of the best major league baseball players of all time in my opinion. Also, another successful baseball player that I think is a success is Babe Ruth, one of the best overall players ever, I think. Therefore, success to me is winning because I do not like to lose ever.

He won 3 straight All American Awards then ended his career to marry and become a coach at South
Everyone defines success differently, but it is an achievement everyone strives for. John Wooden was notorious for his achievement as a basketball coach, and his philosophies on success.
