Phil Jackson, Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success

Watch Former NBA coach Phil Jackson on PBS. See more from Tavis Smiley.

Phil Jackson talks about his book, Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success.   The most interesting part to me was his discussion about how he was raised in a very religious environment - "view from the pew" he says - by parents he loved and who loved him, and how he meshed his past with the new things that were coming his way as an adult.  And ultimately, he talks about how he used his personal philosophy and the spiritual dimension of his life to motivate his players and accumulate championships.  Every once in a while, I will see an interview and think, "I see some parallels with own life here."  And, "This is a person I can truly learn from."  Watching this last night triggered both of these thoughts.

About six minutes of the interview gets cut off.  Here's the transcript where you can catch the rest - an essential bit, I might add.
