My Los Angeles Heroes

Los Angeles is rich with famous people of integrity

 

In times of community turmoil, it is good to remember the good we have in our lives and build our hope and aspirations for a better future on that. The legends I am referring to start with John Wooden. Yes, my USC buddies might want to knock that one down, but certainly former UCLA Bruin’s Basketball Coach Wooden is the ultimate winner and authority on morals, values, and just doing the right thing. Take a moment and google John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success and then you will realize just a glimpse of this great human.

In building a team of legends, the next LA superstar is Dodger’s baseball sportscaster Vin Scully. For 67 seasons this living legend has been the ultimate storyteller that captivates the city and the world with his good nature and ability to charm the pants off the devil! I am particularly taken by Vin as a kid growing up, as my grandfather, Dr. Sam Luster, was an avid fan of Vin and the Dodgers. His patients would sit and listen to a 1/2 inning and that was their visit. 

Putting our lives in perspective is the ability to see our situation for what it is, eliminating the drama and appreciating our circumstances at the present. Who better to tell that story and provide tools necessary to get by than life and business strategist Tony Robbins. 

I have personal heroes that I have admired over the years growing up and living my blessed life in Los Angeles:

1. John Wooden
2. Vin Scully
3. Tony Robbins
4. Former Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley
5. Wrestler Freddie Blassie
6. Hall of Fame Guard Magic Johnson
7. Hall of Fame Pitcher Sandy Koufax
8. Newscaster Jerry Dunphy
9. Philanthropist Ruth Ziegler
10. My Father Arnold Luster
