Handout #357: The Art of Being Gracious

Thank you to all of you who have reached out to me asking what happened to the weekly Coach Bacevich posts.  I thoroughly enjoyed the stories that I received over the last month about how you look forward to the motivational words every Monday, how you find bits of relevant information and forward it along to your children, friends, grandchildren etc.  The site had some technical difficulties that took longer to fix than I expected.  We did not give up though, and we are back!!  Have a great holiday Season.  I hope you get as much joy and guidance from these Handouts as I do.  May the good Lord shower you with his blessings!  Mike Bacevich

The Art of Being Gracious

Everyone would like to be a gracious person. Graciousness is a precious attribute of most of the things we yearn for – admiration, respect, love and happiness. It is a mistake to think that one is born with this attribute. It is an acquired trait, as readily acquired as good manners, which constitute a very important part of it. But unlike most arts, one does not need to have a special talent for it. Only the sincere desire to be gracious – plus thoughtfulness and practice – are required.

The key to the art is the Golden Rule – applied so consistently that it becomes natural. It is a matter of treating others the way you would like to be treated – not because it is the diplomatic thing to do but because you want to treat them that way.

The art of being gracious is developed by doing kind things – and sometimes difficult things – in the kindest way, until such behavior becomes characteristic of you. And how rewarding such a grace can be! Wordsworth declared that such little, shameless, unremembered acts of kindness add up to the best portion of a good man’s life.

Handout #352: The Family in America

The Family In America

The raising of children, and their training, is a serious obligation which the conscientious parent cannot delegate to others. It is part of his/her job to see that the children become useful members of society – and that is a personal responsibility.

Such parents as mine, for instance, had no inhibitions about “cramping a child’s style” or obliterating his personality. They realized, as sensible people, that the job of training a child is one that takes strength of purpose and deep love with a long-range view – not the kind that coddles and indulges, and allows a child to imagine that the world is going to be his oyster . . . . The experience of my whole life tells me that successful dealings between men are influenced for good or ill by home backgrounds.

It seems to me that the American family used to be more closely knit; though it was made up of individuals, there was a unity, a common interest. And this gave a strong feeling of security to each member of the family unit. I do not say that this situation does not exist today – but I do say, and I have years of observation to prove it – that the average parent today, in his desire to make his children happy and give them everything they want, is less apt to instill in them those qualities of character that grow out of wholesome self-denial.

Many people assume that this is an outmoded point of view, belonging to a slower, simpler way of life. Quite the contrary; the speed and complexity of present day living require of us, if anything, greater discipline and fortitude, to enable us to see and do what is important.

If we are to keep America secure, we must look to the preservation of the American family. We must concern ourselves deeply, and with wise love, about our children. We must know where they are, what they are doing, what they are learning. We must take a hand in teaching them, day by day, not controlling, but guiding. They are the new citizens who will receive the torch from our hands and carry it on.

America. If it is sound and right, we need to have no fears for America. And there, I think, is the job which lies at hand for everyone, and which no one can side-step without danger to our American way of life.

— J.C. Penney

Handout #351: Are You a Minute Miser???

Are You a Minute Miser???

Once there was a man, who, in his lifetime:

  • finished college in less than three years;
  • studied law and was admitted to the bar at 24;
  • designed one of the nation’s leading universities and the capital building of his state;
  • originated the decimal system for US money;
  • introduced crop rotation and terracing to the United States;
  • seriously studied natural history, Latin, Greek, Italian, French, German, Anglo-Saxon, Mathematics, History, Geography, Civics, Economics, and Philosophy;
  • was a state legislator, governor, minister to France, Secretary of State, Vice-President, and President of the U.S.;
  • created the public school system in his state;
  • became president of a university;
  • established the U.S. Military Academy, designed uniforms;
  • wrote rules of parliamentary procedure for the Senate;
  • fought for the government that made the U.S. a democratic republic, not one ruled by aristocracy; and
  • designed, built his house, was father of six children.

Yet this man, THOMAS JEFFERSON, had in each of his days the same 24 hours we have in each of ours.

While we can’t plan to match Jefferson’s accomplishments, we do know there are ways of saving some of those 1,440 brand new minutes given us each day.  “Minute Misers” suggest studying our daily routine, questioning the use of our time.

For instance, we can save minutes by getting up when we open our eyes instead of lingering in bed.  Can we combine some of our morning routines?  Do we plan each day’s work?  Activities?  Do we seek to do “extra”?  Do we know what we want to accomplish?

Do we always have something to do when we get unexpected spare minutes, as when we are waiting for someone?

The experts tell us to chart our use of time for a week.  Those who have done this are surprised at the minutes they save.  We might be able to join the “minute misers” and add profitable hours to each day.

Handout #347: How Do You Measure a Man?

How Do You Measure a Man?

What can we use when we measure a man?  What can we use for the test?  It isn’t a yardstick, it isn’t a scale, for size does not make him the best.

It isn’t the kind of job that he holds, nor the money he has in the bank, nor his college degrees, nor the clothes that he wears, nor the titles, position, nor rank.

The measure that counts, that makes him a MAN, is the way that he wears with his friends; It’s the kindness he shows, the pleasures he shares, And the unselfish service he lends.

It’s his everyday living, the interest he takes, in his day-to-day dealings with others; His desire to help, his love of mankind, that sets him apart from his brothers.

He doesn’t seek honors, he doesn’t seek fame.  His friendliness isn’t a plan; just the way that he lives, passes all of the tests, that we use when we measure a MAN.

— John Waters

Life’s Weaving

  1. My life is but a weaving between my God and me.  I may not choose the colors.  He knows what they should be.  For he can view the pattern upon the upper side, while I can see it only, on this, the under side.
  2. Sometimes he weaves in sorrow, which seems so strange to me.  But I will trust His judgment and work on faithfully.  Tis He who fills the shuttle.  He knows just what is best.  So I will weave in earnest and leave with Him the rest.
  3. At least when life in ended, with Him I shall abide.  Then I view the pattern upon the upper side.  Then I shall know the reason why pain, with joy entwined, was woven in the fabric of life that God-Designed.  — Unknown

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

Someone Said It — Hell begins on the day when God grants us a clear vision of all that we might have achieved, of all the gifts which we have wasted, of all that we might have done which we did not do.

Handout #343: Friends

Friends

If nobody smiled and nobody cheered, and nobody helped us along;

If every man looked after himself and good things all went to the strong;

If nobody cared just a little for you, and nobody thought about me;

And all we stood alone in the battle of life, what a dreary old world it would be.

 

Life is sweet just because of the friends we have made, and the things in common that we share;

We want to live on, not because of ourselves, but because of the people who care;

It’s giving and doing for somebody else–on that all life’s splendor depends;

And the joy of the world, when you have summed it all up, is found in the making of friends.

20 Ways to Avoid a Decision

  1. We tried that before.
  2. We’ve never done it that way before.
  3. I know a fellow who tried it.
  4. We’ve always done it this way.
  5. It’s too radical a change.
  6. We did all right without it.
  7. Our situation is different.
  8. We lack authority to change.
  9. We don’t have the time.
  10. Not enough help.
  11. It costs too much.
  12. It isn’t in the budget.
  13. We’re not ready for that.
  14. Let’s put it in writing.
  15. We should test it first.
  16. A committee should study it first.
  17. Let’s give it more thought.
  18. You’re right, but why now?
  19. Good thought but impractical.
  20. It can’t be done.

WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE???

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

DEDICATION – SACRIFICE – DESIRE

He who won’t be denied will find a way.

It is no disgrace to fail, but to lie there and grunt is.

It is not he that enters upon any career, or starts in any race, he that runs well and perseveringly that gains the plaudits of others or the approval of his own conscience.

Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.  Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans.  That the moment one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves, too.  All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.  — William H. Murray

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

  • No horse gets anywhere till he is harnessed.  No stream ever drives anything until it is confined.  No life ever grows until it is focused, dedicated and DISCIPLINED.
  • Athletic games/contests are generally won by the boys, the athletes with great desire.
  • It ain’t braggin’ if you’ve done it.
  • Everything cometh to him that waiteth, so long as he who waiteth worketh like hell while he waiteth.
  • I asked of life:  “What have you to offer me?”  And the answer came:  “What have you to give me?”
  • It is impossible to get a toehold on success by acting like a heal.

Handout #338: Character

CHARACTER

CHARACTER – To me, Character is being able to say “YES” and “NO” to the right and wrong things.

Fielding Yost, the legendary coach of the Michigan Wolverines in the early 1900s, once told his players, “No coach in America asks any man to make any sacrifice.  He requests that he do the opposite – live clean, come clean, think clean – that he stop doing all the things that destroy him mentally, morally and physically and begin doing the things that make him keener, finer and more competent.”  It’s not sacrifice to play football, it’s a great privilege.

It takes a young man with special qualities to play football and compete in the classroom.

Horace Greely once was quoted:  Favor is a Vapor, Popularity an Accident, Riches take Wings, Those who cheer you today will curse you tomorrow, One thing endures:  Character.

Vince Lombardi was quoted:  “Character is the result of mental attitude.  You can’t dream yourself into character.  Character rather than education is man’s need and man’s greatest safeguard.  I believe that character is higher than intellect, and the difference between men is certainly in energy, in invincible determination, in strong will; but leadership is in sacrifice, in self-denial, in love and fearlessness and in humility and disciplined will.  This is the distinction between great and little men.”

I believe football develops character.  There is no easy way to practice football.  It is often the most difficult thing that a young man undertakes in his lifetime.  It prepares him for the trials and struggles of life.

John Wooden once said:  “Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation, because your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”  Each of us knows when we look into the mirror whether we’re pleased with ourselves.

George Washington many years ago stated:  “I hope I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.”  My experience in high school and college football has taught me that the most difficult thing for young men to do is to tell the truth, regardless of the consequences.  They prefer to tell you what you want to hear and not what os the truth.

Helen Keller said it this way:  “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.  Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.”  Silver is purified in fire and so are we.  It is the most trying times that our real character is shaped and revealed.  We have a unique opportunity and responsibility as coaches lead to young men into lives of responsibility and accountability.

Paul “Bear” Bryant said it this way just before his death:  “We’re supposed to be living in a very sophisticated time, with sophisticated young people, all worldly and knowledgeable.  How can the game of football still be important in that context?

“I’ll tell you how I feel.  I feel it’s more important than ever.  What else have we to anchor to?  Where else can we walk out there evensame everything and compete?  Look around.  Maybe the football field is the only place left.  Maybe we’ve already lost it everywhere else.”

Woody Hayes … “this coaching profession is so great you’ll never appreciate it until you retire.  You have no idea the impact you have on players . . . ”

Handout #332: Momma Look at your Big Boy Now

Momma Look at your Big Boy Now

Came along this bouncing boy to dad’s delight, to my great joy.  So small and cuddly, with a little cute grin, fat and chubby with a double chin.

“A ball from me”, said dad, so proud, ‘A star of the future above the crowd.”

And I sat back with a sigh of bliss, and thanked the Lord for all of this.

Momma, look at your big boy now.

He grew so fast, my cute little tike, pulled his wagon and rode hid trike, played in the dirt and scratched his knees, slammed the doors and climbed in trees.

And at times I thought, above it all, this kid will drive me up the wall!

But he came to me streaming tears about his bumps and childhood fears, and sat upon my lap to rest, laid his head upon my breast, and looking angelic as he could do, he whispered, ‘Momma – I love you.”

And I thought to myself – while I held him in my arms, I love this boy with all his charms.

Momma, look at your big boy now.

Then came the day he left for school, the ABC’s and social rule, Will he be safe and keep himself neat?  Will he behave and have plenty to eat?

I will worry and frat as he leaves my side – but have faith he will grown and stay in stride.  He performed his tasks each and every day and even was the dragon in the kindergarten play.  With happiness and pride – it showed on my face,

Momma, look at your big boy now.

As the years went by so very fast, I came to know a change at last.  Through the door he would fly, to the cupboard with seeking eye.  “Mom, I’m hungry – what’s to eat,” floppin’ on the chair and proppin’ his feet.

Did you make your bed and cut the grass?  Clean the tub and shine the brass?

Ah, Mom – all the guys are playing ball, and I need the practice to beat ’em all.  Cause I’m going too make the team this year and be the tough guy they all fear.

You better do your chores and mind your biz or you’re going to find out who the tough guy is!

“Ah Mom” – and faster than the words were said, up the stairs, he hit the bed.  And with a feeling of abuse, I said to myself, what’s the use?

Momma, look at your big boy now!

Then came the drills, in the heat of August steam.  “Bye Mom – I’m going to make the team.”
