Just Say No to Gossip

Good Morning!  I am up and at ‘em this morning. Ready for the sun to rise so I can hit the streets for a run.

I woke up full of energy yesterday morning.

My favorite trainer at Title Boxing, Cisco Guerra, is also a motivational speaker.  This week he has been having us run outside and then gather in the parking lot and giving us a morning “pep” talk while we jog in place.

Monday’s was about keeping your enthusiasm and energy in life by always staying hungry.  Yesterday’s was about gossiping and talking negative about people.  He just reminded all of us adults that we have the power to NOT get sucked in to gossip and negativity.  Even if people are doing it around us, we can stop it by not passing it on and not giving energy to the person doing it.

It was a good reminder.  I don’t work in an office, so I don’t find myself wrapped up in gossip or talking about others very often, but it happens.  Cisco was right, talking about other people doesn’t benefit anyone.  It doesn’t make anyone involved feel good. So why do it?  Shouldn’t we be constantly working toward making ourselves and those around us feel good and be better people?

Workout

    1. Isn't that great?! I thought it was a good reminder to a group of ADULTS! Adults don't get talked to about gossiping so I though it was a great way to start class.
