Keep Running

0 - Published February 27, 2014 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! I overslept. And there was nobody on the planet that could have been as angry at the moment as I was. I had nobody to blame but myself. It wasn’t the first time I’d overslept. But it was the morning we were flying from Providence to DC, to scrimmage Georgetown and Johns […]

Future Dictated By Faith

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! …To one day walk upright enough as a man, to not let my past dictate my future; and let my future be dictated by faith.” – Ray Lewis Today may be defined by yesterday. But tomorrow does not have to be. Tomorrow will be defined by today. Last month does not have to define […]

The Second Best Time Is Now

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! As we near the end of the month, make sure to take a minute to reflect. Much the same as we might do at the end of the day, there’s value in looking back at the things that we wanted or expected to accomplish, the habits that we worked to […]

Nothing Wrong With Sorry

0 - Published February 21, 2014 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! Happy Friday! Maybe it’s just me. I’m very conscious of distinguishing between the use of “I’m sorry” and “I apologize.” But there’s a difference. I am sorry is an affirmation of self. It’s a declaration of how you feel at a particular time. We hurt somebody’s feelings. Or we get into an argument. […]

The Land of What If

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! Just for today, I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.” I’m reading Toughness, by Jay […]

With Words and With Silence

0 - Published February 18, 2014 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! Speak now or forever hold your peace. We’ve all heard that expression. Sometimes it’s difficult to actually know if it’s best to speak now or whether simply holding our peace is a better option. Two things are certain, however. One, if we remain quiet, we’ve got to be willing to […]

With The Same Respect

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! Happy Friday, and happy Valentine’s Day! People used to ask my dad what it was like to coach or teach his own kids. His response was always simple. I treat all of players [or students] like my sons, so I don’t have to treat my sons any differently.” Not everyone we […]

Staying Consistently Grateful

0 - Published February 12, 2014 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning ladies and gentlemen! “With all this talk about the right attitude and how it can be different depending on the situation, you’re probably wondering “How do I know what the right attitude is for my situation?” The fist step is to adopt the “universal” right attitudes that you feel can apply to almost […]

Leave It Behind You

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen! 1 Corinthians 13:11, “When I was a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.” By nature, we are constantly changing and evolving. And as we mature into adulthood, the world asks us to leave […]

BONUS: Do It Now

0 - Published February 10, 2014 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Had to pass this along! From Rick Warren: “Whenever you possibly can, do good to those who need it. Never tell your neighbor to wait until tomorrow if you can help them now.” Proverbs 3:27-28 (GN) The best time to love is now — not tomorrow. Not later. Not someday. Not one of these days. […]

Promise To Be Strong

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! Happy Monday! I went on a little Twitter rant last yesterday, because I was thinking about a conversation that I’ve had with multiple people about whether or not it’s possible to be happy all the time or to always have a good day. My final statement was as follows: Tough moments are inevitable. We […]

Acting Versus Pretending

0 - Published February 5, 2014 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! Here’s an excerpt from Rick Warren’s “Daily Hope” email. Love is an action, not just emotion. Love is something you do. It’s easy to love somebody who loves you, isn’t it? It takes nothing at all. But real love acts and does the loving thing when people don’t deserve it, […]

What Matters Down the Road

0 - Published February 4, 2014 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! Last night with one of the gentlemen with whom I coach, I was discussing the evolution of one of our players from the end of his 8th grade season to now, the beginning of his senior season. He mentioned a handful of interactions that they’d had over the last couple […]
