The 11 Things I learned From DABO SWINNEY

December 17, 2017

As the guest speaker at the 10th Annual Sports Visions Awards Luncheon Clemson University Head Football Coach Dabo Swinney did not disappoint.

Coach Swinney gave back more to the audience than they could possibly take in. During Mr. Dabo’s presentation he inspired and motivated other players and coaches with what he called his fundamentals for success through stories, quotes, scriptures and words of encouragement.

The St. Luke Church was buzzing with excitement and if you were not there I’m here to take you there by summarizing what happened and how this message changed our lives so through his name I present to you the “11Things I Learned From DABO SWINNEY.”

(D) is for Dream. Don’t be afraid to dream big but set goals with a vision for your success.

(A) is for Active. Be involved and stay involved in school and community programs.

(B) is for Build. Surround yourself with good and tough people so you can build and have positive relationships.

(O) is for Over. Don’t buy into being an over achiever but speak belief into your life and say “I’m not an overachiever I’m an over believer.”

(S) is for Spiritual. In order to have success on and off the field you have to have a spiritual foundation in your life.

(W) is for What. People say someday I will do this and someday I will do that. What you do today determines when your someday will be.

(I) is for Individual. People that are successful know that separation comes from preparation.

(N) is for Now. Don’t take anything for granted so start to bloom where you are planted.

(N) is for Never. Never Ever let people walk through your mind with dirty feet.

(E) is for Education. Getting your diploma and degree is a game changer and it can take you out of the long line and place you in the short line.

(Y) is for You. You can be successful and make a difference. You can work hard and out work others.

When you hear Dabo Swinney conduct interviews or talk to his team in the locker room it will not help you understand how great he is and why he is one of the top coaches in the world until you hear him speak and share his story and still give God glory. I hope this message inspired you like the 11 Things I Learned From DABOR SWINNEY inspired me.

What Will You Do When Life Says FOG You?

January 7, 2012

On New Year’s Eve December 31st, 2011 I was headed to get something to eat and all I could see around me was fog. It was kind of scary because in Columbus, GA this is not an everyday thing.

Fog is anything that gets in your way by making your vision cloudy. At that moment I stopped and took the picture that you see in this blog.  This  message came to me “What Will You Do When Life Says FOG You?”

FOG means Figuring Out Gifts. You can have many talents and still not know where and how to make the most of your abilities.  Life says FOG you and what you going to do? Start with 1 because you have already been that master of none. If you don’t know where to begin ask those close to you where you should start and go from there?

FOG means Fumble Our Goals. Life has put you in a position and you know what you’re good at and what you want to do. Life still says FOG you. When you get off to a slow start and doubt begins to set in you have to keep going so procrastination doesn’t stay with you permanently.

FOG means Family Over Greatness.  Some who try to make a difference and raise a family will face the battle sooner or later about spending quality time with their loved ones. Loved ones at times will care less and tell you right to your face FOG you?  Put your family first as much as you can so you will have less distraction and be able to meet your own expectations.

FOG Friends On Going. Co-workers and associates will keep you up with the Jones family by telling and showing you pictures of all of their activities and why you should work less and play more.  Just when things are starting to click friends will say FOG you. Make a list of who your real friends are. Real friends will truly understand what your mission is. Whodini once asked Friends, how many of us have them?

FOG Faking One’s Growth. It can be hard to tell if someone is successful if they live by the principle Fake It Until You Make It. Some can pull it off while others can’t. If you are not careful life will say FOG you. Things like cheating the system and running up bad debt can catch up with you in the long run. It is easier to get into trouble but it’s harder to get out of it.

FOG can make it hard for you to see your Gifts, Goals, Greatness, what’s Going and Growing in your life. The next time your life becomes cloudy fight back and say FOG you.


It’s All About You

March 26, 2009

This week I started to read the book Guerrilla Marketing by Jay Conrad Levinson. It has been so incredible and has inspired me to write an  About You page for my website. Take a look. http://www.derrickhayes.com/images/aboutyou.pdf
