When You Win, I Win by: Augusto Corniel
We must…all hang together or…we shall all hang separately. B. Franklin
When you win I win.
Three years ago Scouting was not in my radar. I have many things requiring my attention; I do not need to add anything else to my agenda. Then Mr. Fajardo told me “I want to spend time with my nephews and invest in them, join Troop 9.” That’s all I needed to hear. I will go to war with those who want to help me succeed as a parent. The BSA Handbook reinforced my conclusion “The mission of the Boys Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.” (pg.15).
Troop Nine’s Culture
People have habits, organizations have systems thinking. Tampa has many troops offering the exact same program. What makes the difference between troops are the people. From the beginning I felt a welcoming and goal oriented culture. Let’s continue developing Troop 9’s DNA by intentionally making others feel valued and making about Scouting.
Not a Zero-Sum Game
Troop 9 desires for all scouts to become Eagle. One scout becoming Eagle does not keep another from achieving the same rank. As parents, leaders, and fellow scouts let’s continue to cheer for the progress other scouts are making, not just a particular scout. The troop understands that when a member fails the troop fails. Failure is not terminal and unavoidable, but causing someone to fail is not scout-like. When you win I win.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
