This might seem a right angle post to what I usually talk about on this blog, but bear with me…it actually has much to do with you, your business and CrossFit.
Love means helping. Helping to make someone or something you are a part of better. Helping people and organizations to reach their highest potential.
Love means constructive criticism. Carefully pointing out weaknesses in order that work may be done to strengthen those weaknesses.
Love means willingness to look objectively at people and things. Not turning a blind eye to the ugly spots, but instead looking for ways to make the ugly spots beautiful.
In these circumstances Love is challenging. It is not easy to look at weaknesses and speak about them. It is uncomfortable to truly assess the points where you are falling down.
Finally, love is telling someone they have spinach in their teeth when they are in the middle of a group of people.
Fear is in not helping. Fear is not open to constructive criticism. Fear is unwillingness to look at things objectively. Fear is hiding weaknesses to avoid addressing them. Fear turns your head to avoid looking at the spinach.
The Black Box Summit was born entirely of LOVE.
