Why I Turned Away a Whiner

So this weekend I will mostly be…

Fitting our rubber floor at the C.P Training Centre

(yeah, living the dream!)

 

But it ain’t all that bad

Because at least I’ll be assisted by other good people

 

Its similar to training…

Ever trained with ‘drainer’?

 

The kind of whinning, complaining busy body?

Everything’s a chore

They can’t do anything without making a fuss

 

When if they listened…

Focused…

Committed

And did the tasks required

Then they would benefit

 

But all they do is drag you and everyone else down

Its like a virus spreading

And you and everyone else suffers

 

One of the most common bits of advice I’m always told…

(including from our landlord who owns Becketts Farm)

 

‘Surround yourself with positive people, not sappers’

 

I’ve observed firsthand how one sapper…

Can completely derail the success of multiple other people

Maybe you have some at your club…

Or no doubt at your work place

 

But on the flip side

How about when you train with people who commit?

Who work hard and engage in their training?

 

Maybe someone who runs reps with you?

Or pushes you on a drill?

 

All this comes down to culture and environment

And the one thing I’m adamant in having at our training centre…

Is a zero sappers policy!

 

In fact, I spoke with someone who wanted to join our team

But they were clearly a sapper…

So I politely suggested this wouldn’t be a place they would benefit in joining

 

Nothing beats a success driven culture

It raises everyone’s efforts

Everyone’s enjoyment

And everyone’s results…

In how their body and mind develops with training

 

Wish me luck with the floor

Cheers
