Handout #349: What Makes a Champion???

What Makes a Champion???

The thing that makes a champion is obvious enough: It isn’t any mystic prestidigitator’s stuff.

It’s nothing more than giving to whatever be the chore, The power that is in you – and a small scintilla more. It isn’t any wizardry, it’s not a magic gift; It’s merely lifting honestly the load you have to lift; Or, in the game you’re playing, it is using all you store Or grit and nerve and energy – and a trifle more.

The thing that makes a champion is simple, plain and clear; It’s never being “almost”, “just about”, or “pretty near”, It’s summoning the utmost from your spirit’s inner core and giving every bit of it – and just a little more.

“That little more-how much it is”. As deep and wide and far As that enormous emptiness from molehill to a star, The gulf between the earthbound and the eagles as they soar, The champions who give their best – and one iota more.

It’s Up to You!

God gave you this day to do just what you would.  You can throw it away . . . or do some good.  You can make someone happy, or make someone sad.  What have you done with the day that you had?

God gave it to you to do just as you would.  You could do what is wicked, or do what is good.  You can hand out a smile, or just give ’em a frown, You can lift someone up, or push someone down.

You can lighten some load, or some progress impede, You can look for a rose, or just gather some weed.  What did you do with your beautiful day?

God gave it to you, did you throw it away?

Handout #345:: Achieving Success . . . The Same Principles Apply

Achieving Success . . . The Same Principles Apply

After reviewing my athletic career, spiced with five years experience of operating my own business, I can offer the following guidelines to achieving success in both sports and the business world, because the same principles apply.

First of all, you need to have both long-range goals and short-range goals.  In my case, the long-range goal was to play pro football.  But in order to do this, I had to have short-term goals such as increasing my agility, putting on weight, building strength, and being competitive enough to get a college scholarship.  In college, I had the same basic goals, along with the development of self-discipline and making my grades.  After attaining my goal of becoming a professional ball player, I set new goals – becoming an All-Pro and winning a Super Bowl.

The next ingredient in my formula for success is dedication.  This includes rigorous self-discipline, consistent hard work, and maintaining a strict routine.  With the right attitude of dedication, you can make every day profitable toward achieving the big goal.

Of course, to be successful, one must have good ability which is God-given.  Our creator designs each of us with specific talents, but then we have the choice to develop our potential or not.  A winner will choose to make the most of his assets and even over compensate for areas of weakness.

To be successful, one must have experience.  In my case, I played in five unsuccessful seasons with the Cowboys before finally starting to win.  Each losing season gave me some valuable experience which finally contributed to the winning seasons.

The final attribute I wish to list for that of a winner is self-confidence.  There is a saying, “A chain is as string as its weakest link.”  Lack of confidence could be the weak link in the chain, so one must believe in oneself in order to achieve success.  Self-confidence comes from learning your own strengths and weaknesses.  Through much experience in competing, one arrives at this knowledge.  Then one can build up weak areas and focus on the strong ones.

Handout #331: Six Characteristics of Success

SIX CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCCESS

QUESTION? Why do some athletes and teams outperform those of equal ability?

SIX CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCCESS

1. They are able to out do their previous levels of accomplishments. (Practice and Competition).

2. They avoid the so-called comfort zone. They are dissatisfied with their present level of accomplishment.

3. They do what they do for the A-R-T and L-O-V-E of it and are guided by compelling, “burning”, internal goals.

4. They solve problems rather than place blame.

5. They confidentially take risk after laying out the worst consequences beforehand.

6. They have learned to rehearse coming actions and events mentally.

*******************

“WINNING AND PERFORMANCE CAN BE LEFT TO CHANCE

BUT CONSISTENCY OF EFFORT AND INCREASED LEVELS OF PERFORMANCE

REQUIRE A DESIGNED MENTAL APPROACH TOWARD YOURSELF AND YOUR SPORT”

*******************

No athlete or team effort will be successful unless a total focus and commitment is made individually and collectively toward two elements:

(1) POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDES and

(2) APPROPRIATE PHYSICAL BEHAVIORS.

An Admirable Man . . .

If a man is honest with others and with himself . . .

If he receives gratefully and gives quietly . . .

If he is gentle enough to feel and strong enough to show his feelings.

If he is slow to see the faults of others, but quick to discover their goodness . . .

If he does his best to be true to his beliefs . . .

THEN

He is truly AN ADMIRABLE MAN.

Now, then – How Do You Measure Up?

***************************************************************

GRAMMAR . . .

Live in the active voice, rather than in the passive.  Think more about what you make happen than what is happening to you.

Live in the indicative mood, rather than in the subjunctive.  Be concerned with things as they are, rather than as they might be.

Live in the present tense, facing the duty at hand without regret for the past or worry over the future.

Live in the singular number, caring more for the approval of your own conscience than for the applause of the crowd.

— The Treasure Chest

***************************************************************

SPIRITUAL MATURITY

Spiritual maturity begins when we realize that we are God’s guests in this world.  We are not householders, but pilgrims; not landlords, tenants; not owners, but guests.  — Father Sylvester

***************************************************************

WHAT LIFE IS . . .

Life is a race.  Don’t whimper if the track is rough and the goal is distant.  One day you shall reach it.

Life is a voyage.  Don’t complain if the storms batter the hull or the winds batter to shreds the sails.  One day you shall come to your haven.

Life is growth.  Don’t find fault if the seed lies smothered and submerged in the dark earth before it blooms and blossoms.  One day you shall have your harvest.

Life is a pilgrimage.  Don’t falter on the road through self-pity because stones cut your feet and leave your blood on the trail.  One day you will come to Immanuel’s land.

The God who through the boundless sky guides the flight of the sparrow, who builds the blind bird’s nest, will see to it that in his good time you shall arrive.

***************************************************************

HALLMARKS OF TRUE LOVE . . .

  1. A genuine interest in the other person and all that he or she says and does.
  2. A community of tastes, ideals, and standards with no serious clashes.
  3. A greater happiness in the being with the other person than with any other.
  4. A real unhappiness when the other person is absent.
  5. A great feeling of comradeship.
  6. A willingness to give and take.
  7. A pride in the other person when comparisons are made.

— The Treasure Chest

GIFTS

  • To your enemy, forgiveness.

Handout #310: What is a Winner?

What is a Winner?

Congratulations to the St. Xavier Bombers who won the D1 Football State Championship!  My son Blake played a key role in the game, and I am so proud of him!  This group of boys came together among much adversity to become winners!  As this handout describes “Winners”, so as they have become!  Life memories and life changing!

What is a Winner . . .

A winner is coachable.   A loser thinks he has nothing to learn.

A winner values the game and his part in it.  A loser sees the game only as a means of being the center of attention.

A winner is not easily depressed; or, if so, not for long.  A loser stays depressed over very minor things.

A winner looks eagerly towards success.  A loser is frightened of it.

A winner is willing to express himself even though the words may not come out just right.  A loser is afraid to express himself.

A winner knows that he must keep trying, taking a chance; and possibly failing; which means being hurt.  He is not afraid to say, “I cared enough to want this.”  A loser never makes a total effort, and, thus, can rationalize any loss by saying, “I didn’t really try.  I didn’t really care.”

A winner may become physically and mentally exhausted, but continues to work hard from beginning to end.  A loser lacks psychological endurance under stress.  He gives up easily in practice and in competition.

A winner is willing to look at himself critically.  A loser is not capable of using self-evaluation.

A winner knows clearly, in his conscience, right from wrong.  A loser’s conscience is not well developed.

A winner recognizes that pain is part of the game; and makes no excuses for why he is not playing well.  A loser uses the pain as an excuse for not playing well.

A winner accepts bad breaks as part of the game; realizes that, in the long run, they affect almost everyone equally; and forgets them.  A loser feels that he is the sole victim of a bad break, and thinks there is a large conspiracy against his well doing.  He will remember what he thinks to be unfair treatment indefinitely indefinitely, and continue to use it as an excuse.

A winner has long range goals, and works towards them.  A loser lacks the drive towards an objective.

**********************************************************

As you read these principles, keep in ind that a great dealing of thinking behind them did not come from a champion of athlete or famous coach.  These thoughts were not the work of a minister or philosopher.  They came from a woman faced with imminent personal tragedy.  It makes the courage and the poise possessed by the rest of us seem pretty small.

**********************************************************

The Will to Win is important BUT the Will to Prepare to win, is more important. . .

Handout #309: The Man Who Thinks He Can!!!

This is one of my all time favorite Coach Bacevich handouts.  I put it on the back of my Grandpa’s program at his funeral.  It epitomizes what he taught me.  It is especially true this week for my son Blake and the St. Xavier Bombers going to the D1 Ohio State Championship football game.  Many people counted them out, and they are just the second team in Ohio history to make it to the Championship game with a 5-5 regular season record.  They are an outstanding group of young men that have put self-interest to the side and have come together for the better of the team!  These young men have the will of champions and they have fought back from behind in their last three play-off games; down 21-3 in 3rd Quarter against Colerain to a 29-23 OT win; down 28-7 in 4th Quarter against Sycamore to a 35-28 OT win, down 21-20 to Pickerington Central to a 29-27 win.  Great teams come together and believe they can win!!!  This post is to Coach Bacevich and the St. Xavier Bombers!

 

The Man Who Thinks He Can!!!

If you think you are beaten, you are;

If you think you dare not, you don’t!

If you’d like to win, but think you can’t,

It’s almost a cinch that you won’t.

 

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost;

For out in the world we find

Success begins with a fellow’s will;

It’s all in the state of mind!

 

If you think you’re outclassed, you are;

You’ve got to think high to rise.

You’ve got to be sure of yourself

Before you can win the prize.

 

Life’s battles don’t always go

To the strongest or fastest man;

But sooner or later the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can!

It Has Been Said

  • One of the mysteries of life is how the boy who wasn’t good enough to marry the daughter can be the father of the smartest grandchild in the world.
  • Hardening of the heart ages people more quickly than hardening of the arteries.
  • A good coach needs a patient wife, a loyal dog and a great quarterback, but not necessarily in that order.
  • When it comes to helping others – some people stop at nothing.
  • Mistrust the man who finds everything good, the man who finds everything evil, and still more, the man who is indifferent to everything.
  • Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow.  Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead, BUT walk decides me, and be my very dear friend.
  • Count your life by smiles not tears, Count your age by friends not years.
  • Love reduces friction to a fraction.

Handout #306: What is a Competitor?

What is a Competitor?

He plays like every day means the championship.  The guy never gives up.  He’s never beat mentally.  He’s a good player.  He comes through for the team.  He is confident.  He is consistent.  He does his job every day, every play.  Setbacks don’t discourage him.  He’s never satisfied with his performance.  He keeps on going play after play – FULL SPEED.  He runs to death.  You can’t relax for a moment.  He doesn’t play cautious.  He’s aggressive – always on the attack.  He’s more interested in the team than personal glory and winning is the most important goal.

***********

Believe in yourself!  Believe that you were made to do any task without calling for aid.

Believe, without growing too scornfully proud, that you, as the greatest and least are endowed.

A mind to do thinking, two hands and two eyes are all the equipment God gives to the wise.

Believe in yourself:  you’re divinely designed and perfectly made for the work of mankind.

This truth you must cling through danger and pain; the heights man reached you can also attain.  Believe to the very last hour, for it is true, that whatever you will you’ve been gifted to do.

Believe in yourself and step out unafraid.  By misgivings and doubt be not easily swayed.  You’ve the right to succeed; the precision of skill betokens the great you can earn if you will!

The wisdom of the ages is yours if you’ll read.  BUT you’ve got to believe in yourself to succeed.

**********

MY CREED

I do not choose to be a common man.  It is my right to be uncommon . . . If I can.  I seek opportunity – not security.  I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the State look after me.  I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fall and to succeed.  I refuse to barter incentive for a dole.  I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the state of calm of — UTOPIA.  I will not trade freedom for beneficence, nor my dignity for a handout.  I will never cower before my master or bend to any threat.  It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefits of my creations, to face the world boldly and say:  “This is what I have done.”

**********

To Any Athlete:

  • Everything cometh to him that waiteth, so long as he who waiteth worketh like hell while he waiteth.
  • Every accomplishment great or small … starts with the decision … I’ll Try.
  • When you hurry in and out of the locker room you hurry in and out of the big league.  – Pete Rose
  • If you can imagine it, you can achieve it.  If you can dream it, you can become it.
  • Fall down seven times, get up eight!
