In came a comment from Bozo Schofield, whining as usual.
“No-one likes you!”
“The gorilla, the marine, Chuck” ... and on went the list.
Dont know about gorillas and “Chuck” is what Itold him , but the marines and high powered lawyer may have a different opinion on this, hehe.
But anyway, here is what my Dad (with whom it’s well known I dont agree upon anything at all, except those few things that yes, he WAS right about – slipped in “in between” and quietly, hehe, that stuck with yours truly).
Back in the day, when I was working for Freddie, at least in the “initial days of the job” I was doing my damndest to stand out – and make a case for myself.
Freddie hired me on gut and because he liked me.
(sorry, bozos, hehe)
But, the reason he presented to his boss was my I.T. knowledge and he needed a website built, and so forth ...
... And I was starting to get a little too aggressive with my follow ups on this with my managers (well, with “the” managers I should say, since I reported directly to the GM i.e. Freddie) ...
And in a moment of self doubt (back in those days sometimes it did crop up, hehe) I mentioned it in passing to my father when he was asking about it I believe.
“It’s not your job to be liked”, he commented quietly. “You’re there for your career!”
Actually, it was emailed to me now that I recall ...
... and of course, much to his probable and potential consternation, his other piece of advice on “toning it down” was completely ignored (i.e .the part about “sometimes you have to bottle it up andbe politically correct” and “white lie”).
I went the whole humpty, as I always do, have done, and WILL continue to do as I mentioned in that last “there” e-mail ...
And it shows, doesnt it?
IF something is right, then I say it no matter what.
If I didnt do something, such as “get an infamous email sent way back in 2012” that I was accused of, then (maybe it was 2013) I WILL say I didnt, and I WILL stand my ground regardless of what jobs I might get canned for.
As I discussed with Charles Mitchell a few months ago, at the end of the day you have to be able to look yourself in the mirror.
The only way I can do that is if I a) stick up for what I believe in , b) do the right thing no matter what and c) STICK TO MY GUNS!
C) is often times the most important.
No, I ain’t “preaching” here, friend. It’s TRUE.
Fitness wise, same thing.
Despite the hordes gravitating to the gyms and weights in the hope of fitness nirvana, I WILL point them down the 0 Excuses Fitness route anyway.
Despite the nuts benching cows in the gym and hurting their shoulders beyond repair, I WILL continue to state the benefits of handstand pushups until the cows comes how to roost (was that rooster, hehe).
And so forth.
It ain’t about sales. I’d probably make more – way more if I catered to the sheeple out there
But I ain’t gonna do it.
Thats not me.
It just ain’t me!
Never has been, never will be.
What I give you is what I do – and what works – flat out works – better than ANY OTHER bodyweight exercise program out there even!
And I am prepared to go the extra mile or five more, hehe, to back that up!
All for now – back soon!
PS – Pick up the 0 Excuses Fitness System here.
