One of the greatest and winningest college coaches of our time, Paul "Bear" Bryant, kept this poem in his pocket and read it every day.
It holds a great message regardless our lot in life.
This is the beginning of a new day.
God has given me this day to use as I will.
I can waste it or use it for good.
What I do today is important as I am
exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever.
Leaving something in its place I have traded for it.
I want it to be a gain, not loss--good, not evil.
Success, not failure,
in order that I shall not forget the price I paid for it.
