Practice Makes Perfect

They always say – practice makes perfect.

And it’s true.

However as humans we tend to wear ourselves down after all of the “practice” especially if we aren’t seeing the results we’re thriving to achieve.

And if we’re trying to achieve something on our own, it can be even harder to reach that goal without having our own cheerleader along side us, cheering us on and building us up when we need it most.

At the same time, sometimes it can be oddly satisfying reaching your end game and knowing that it’s all on you.

Cheerleaders or not, the hard work, sweat, and determination is all on us as an individual. So might as well take the support if it’s available.

In the very short time that The Arena has been open and available to the public, we are already hearing success story after success story.

Applicants have successfully completed the police recruitment process, and others have passed their fitness tests.

While not everyone has had the opportunity to put their practice to the final test where it counts yet, those that have run the gauntlet have thrown themselves down it again just to better increase their scores and their chances.

And those who have come out to try have done so for the most part alone – however have quickly discovered that those around them, especially in that space at that time, have become their biggest cheerleaders.

And their biggest motivators.

When you walk through those doors you become family. One of the team.

You will find your loudest cheering section.

You will find that even if at any point you were unsure in your journey – we know – they know – that you got this.

And you’ll be cheered you first lap all the way until your last lap.

That’s the Sentinel way.

Motivation doesn’t come in bursts or when you go looking for it.

At Sentinel and at the Arena, it’s always there – pushing you even when you think you can’t be pushed any further.

In all aspects of this company or this family, this is true.

When you’re in – we’re all in with you.

We’ll climb the mountains with you, tear down walls, listen to your biggest hopes and dreams and stand beside you as you conquer them.

There is no time for negativity. No time for dark.

Of course we all have our moments, but that’s what your cheer section is for. To light up your dark and ignite that sparkle.

If you’re looking for a career in policing, come check us out.
