PE’ers as role models
The traits and qualities that make a successful PEer are the same things that make one a success in life its self. They are also the traits that used to make one a role model (before our current era of idolizing every rich sleazy celebrity.)
“A winner never quits and a quitter never wins.” Cliche isn’t it? But the list goes on…
Be willing to share your hard earned knowledge with others. Going that extra mile to help others that are “for real” about improving. Be objective about what your actions have accomplished. Gratification delay or taking the long view. Dedicating hours every day and not getting a return for months or more. Turning a liability into an asset (DLD, case in point.) Being able to share a secret and not betray a confidence. Keeping promises, to your self and others. Having a sense of humor about your undertakings, especially if they are as big a deal as retrofitting ones dick. Just think of all the things that they used to say made one a man.
Some of us have been successful at PE because we already possessed these traits. Some of us have developed these traits in order to succeed at PE. In either case, my hat is off to all of my fellow PEers here at Thunder’s. I am honored to be in the company of such men.
