Bear Bryant's Poem

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.
