Always Check You Attitude

Everyone is aloud to have a bad day.  Everyone is allowed to have a bad week, month or even season.

But if you are in a position of "Power" or , it is best to keep a constant monitor on that attitude,

I have suggested to some that are in such a position to NOT post their feelings on Social Media.  Some of our team's ethics or views might in fact alienate a large percentage of people and from where others sit, that is NOT good for business.

As a grumpy old strength coach, I have many who look to me as the "voice of reason".  I can (and I know this) make or break a person's day with not only what I say, but by a "look" that I've been told that I have.

I need to remember what I tell others..."Always be in charge of your emotions.  Keep them in check".  Once I let someone else piss me off, I am no longer in charge.  I have given that control over to the other person.

Today, I was cranker and more grumpy than usual.  I took it out on one of my "participants".  Left hung out to dry, he had no other choice but to be angry with ME!    I lost it!

Although I am also quick to apologize when I know I was out of place, I am quick to forgive others, and must remember that I am not like many.  Some folks work up a good "mad" and need to rid themselves of it and I need to understand that.

When a person apologizes for something they did to me...I can forgive and forget instantaneously and that took YEARS to develop.

I was wrong for "snapping" this morning.  The mistake was a simple one.  I did not handle it well and for that...I apologize. get back to the business of building stronger, faster, fitter people!
