Five Puzzlers from Wooden

The brilliance of John Wooden, found in the book Wooden by Steve Jamison, cannot be overstated. Here are five points to ponder:

Why is it so difficult to realize that others are more likely to listen to us if first we listen to them?
Why is it so much easier to be negative than positive?
Why is it so difficult to motivate ourselves when we know results come only through motivation?
Why is it so difficult to say thank you to someone when those are two of our own favorite words to hear?
Why do we dread adversity when we know that facing it is the only way to become better, stronger, smarter?
