World Class Coach Shares Her Secret To Success | Valorie Kondos | Goalcast
Gymnastics 'Coach of the Century' is crushed by devastating news... instead of falling apart she turns it into the most important lesson of her life. I had the biggest aha moment of my life I get a call from my doctor and she says you are you in the car I said yeah she goes you need to pull over I'm like well this isn't good and I need you to get it as soon as possible we all have an expiration date we all do and at that moment my world stopped I [Music] heard you all go who when he said I was pac-12 coach of the century you went she's old yeah I get it 1990 we're going to make a change with our head coach and we would like for you to be the new head coach and I've never done gymnastics I know and I said to her you get it I don't know the first thing about gymnastics I went upside-down once it was last year on my 58th birthday and I did a cartwheel I got halfway up and my bum came right down towards the camera and she said I trust you'll figure the rest out I'm like can I get any more she goes now just go figure it out so I did what I thought was the very very smart thing to do I'm gonna go study other coaches this is where I went way wrong the year before we had finished second by half of a tenth the year I took over we came in dead last I realized at that time I was not cut out for this job on my way to resign and I come across coach wooden spoke on leadership but his book opened up magically to his definition of success success is peace of mind in knowing you've done your best and I read it again coach wooden was hailed as the greatest coach that ever lived I am a coach I am hired to win where does he talk about winning I had the biggest aha moment of my life I had been trying to be somebody else and at that moment I realized whenever you try to be somebody else you will always be a second-rate them the worst part about it is it prevents you from being a first-rate you so I started I scrapped everything that I had done I scrapped all those stupid coaching quips and I just became me and I will never ever forget a few years later one of my seniors said miss Val you have finally become a leader worth following I'm going along I'm loving my job I'm ruining Championships all is good I get a call from my doctor and she says you are you in the car I said yeah she goes you need to pull over I'm like well this isn't good and she says I've got to tell you your tests came back and you have breast cancer you have a very aggressive form of breast cancer and I need you to get in as soon as possible and at that moment my world stopped because the only other time I had dealt with cancer in my life was with my mother's death I was in the fight for my life and I went to the oncologist the next day she had this big smile on her face which I thought was very odd and she said now if you choose to get chemotherapy if you choose to get surgery I know it will work going through breast cancer was the best thing that ever happened in my life because it's changed every moment of my life since then I also realized that we all have an expiration date we all do we don't want to talk about it we don't think about it but we do and none of us know what date that is but what I want to make sure that I don't do is waste one day of my life the title of the book also is an homage to Coach wooden during his later years every time I was with him somebody said coach you've led an impeccable life do you have any regrets and he would always say I have one regret my wife Nelly loved to dance and I was always very shy and I would never been a good dancer and I realize now that had I danced with my wife people would have made fun of me they would have seen a couple that were so much in love they loved to dance with each other and if I could do it all over again I would dance with my wife in the history of human beings on this planet there has never been another view and there never will be another you you were born special with a unique light when you try to be somebody else it prevents your own light from shining brightly do not waste one day not fueling your heart and your soul and your light and when you fuel that light please make sure to share it with other people [Applause] you
