"No amount of skill or talent can overcome being a douche bag."
  Jack Cambra
Mikko Salo Snatch. Talent and a very humble athlete.
Think about it guys, what makes athletes like Chris Spealler, Randy Couture, Mikko Salo Annie Sakamoto, and Walter Payton great.? It is not just their ability but there humbleness and strength in adverse situations. So you crush everyone in your gym. So you been Crossfiting since the crusifiction .  So you got a 30 second Fran. So you are a self proclaimed badass coach. Guess what, who cares? If you have a stink attitude and you don't know how to check your attitude at the door nobody cares what you are capable of. If you want to be recognized for your Crossfit accomplishments be humble. If Spealler can be humble what's your excuse? Lastly remember one thing, you are good at Crossfit, that's great. But everybody has something that they are really good at. I worked in an industry where everybody was good at something. Although they were just regular joes at work, they were all big in their circles. Pro surfers, boxers, race car drivers, grapplers, MMA fighters, so on and so forth. All skilled killers but humble and unassuming. So next time you "crush" a WOD and you just don't want to give the time of day to Joe Schmo because he did not Rx his workout and he does not have knee high socks with INOV-8's be careful. The toes you step on today may be connected to the ass you need to kiss tomorrow!
