Sometimes, It Takes A Swift Kick

If you havn’t heard me say the following three things you will….  I say them alot.  And here’s why.

Every Scout CAN become an Eagle.

Inside of Every Scout there is an Eagle waiting to reveal himself.

Sometimes, you have to Kick the Eagles out of the nest.

There Is No Try, There Is Only Do

In the Scout Oath and Law you should notice everything is in the positive…  “A Scout is…” is the refrain in the Scout Law.  Our Scouts are positively affirming what they want and need to become…  “Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent”.

And in the Scout Oath not only are the affirmations always in the positive, but in the verb of action.   “I will do my best, to do my duty”…

Yoda said it best…  “There is no try, only Do, or Do Not”

Scouts Do…  They don’t try.  They simply do.  They don’t try to hike five miles, they do hike five miles.  They don’t try to cook while on a campout, they do it.  They don’t try to do anything.  They simply are expected to do.

Not because they don’t try, they do try.  But in everything they are trying they are positively doing things.  And it’s simply doing what they think they can’t, and they do, our Scouts learn they can do anything.
