We have an innate desire to endlessly learn, grow and develop.  We want to become more than what we already are.  Once we yield to this inclination for continuous and never ending improvement, we lead a life of endless accomplishments and satisfaction.  Chuck Gallozzi.

Building a law firm is more than simply earning a living.  Developing a legacy that you are proud of outweighs any financial goal you could ever achieve.  Building on Coach Wooden’s Pyramid of Success is the second level of the pyramid.  This level entails ambition and sincerity.  Building block number one is self-control. Practice self-discipline in all areas of life.  Developing a steady and consistent control of your emotions.  Alertness, i.e. remaining vigilant and aware of your surroundings.  Keeping an open mind!    Initiative, never fear failure and be willing to take the risk but always learn from your mistakes.  The last building block is Intentness, having realistic goals, focus on these goals and remain determined and focused.

The third stage of success is adaptability to any situation and Honesty in thought and action.  The first building block on this level of the pyramid is Condition.  Mentally, physically and spiritually.  Get plenty of rest, exercise and a healthy diet.  Practice moderation in all that you do.  The second block is skill, i.e. having a reasonable and up to date knowledge base of your trade.  Always be prepared.  Finally is Team Spirit.  Be filled with enthusiasm for your team, your law firm.  Make sure you have a genuine concern for the members of the firm.

The fourth stage of the success pyramid is Resourcefulness and Reliability.  Always be Poised and at ease in all environments.  Have a Confident attitude and be respectful without fear.  This brings us to the top building block which is Fight (determined effort) and Integrity.  Have Competitive Greatness, always be at your best enjoy every difficult challenge.  This will ultimately lead you to Faith and patience.  Patience is the big play don’t ever fail to recognize that greatness takes time and effort!
