Hi Team...

You know, I wanted to share something with you today that is pretty blunt and straight forward. 

The reason I am writing this is because I believe leaders tolerate too much bad behavior and they do not take the actions they should take or want to take most often times because of "optics"... 

This morning, I wrote about losers.

And most importantly,  how much I can not stand them.

I hate what they stand for.

I hate how they make me feel.

I hate how they destroy organizations.

So, I figured I would address this today because it needs addressing.

And, if any of you reading this feel the same way or even worse- are tolerating this behavior this is a sign to take action.


Here it is...

I hate losers.

In fact, they get me sick- truthfully.

When I am around them, when I work around them, when I work with them- they are a disgusting group of people.

These are the types of people who:

  • Show up late or not at all.
  • They expect you to do all the work.
  • They are always talking about what is wrong, not right, and the failures.
  • These people are usually fat- have zero enthusiasm- and have no fire.
  • Their habits suck - no exercise, happy-hour enthusiasts, multiple night per week pizza eaters.
  • If at war, you would have to shoot them first.

BUT, their worst traits...

1. They know everything...
2. It is the fault of everyone else.

I hate people like this.

In fact, I would never coach them.

They bring you down and sometimes they can suck every ounce of energy out of you.

I only coach winners.

Those with goals- big ones.

Those who never quit.

Those who are looking to change the world even it is just their own.

Those who dream, who have vision, who are excited for the day.

Yes- those types, the winners.


Go out and win today.
