Coaching Football's "Little Things"

Developing a Consistently Successful Football Program

Remember Our Fallen Heroes!

Posted by admin May - 31 - 2010 - Monday

Today is Memorial Day! I always think of those who’ve served our country to defend our freedoms today. If you didn’t see the Meomrial Day Concert on the grounds of the Capitol building in D.C. last night on PBS, you need to check it out next year— very inspiring!

I want to share a few words of wisdom with you today. I mentioned them 4-5 months ago but could not find a copy. An email to my house yesterday contained the quote as a “salutation” from the woman. Here it is:

“People are often illogical, unreasonable and self-centered… forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives… be kind anyway.
If you are successsful, you will win some false friends and true enemies…. be successful anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you… be honest anyway.
What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight. Build anyway.
If you find serenity and joy, people will be jealous. Be joyful always! (1 Thess. 5:16)
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.”

Words to live by. I hope they are an encouragement to you the way they are to me.

Never forget!
