Is it worth it?

As a prospect of whatever club you may find yourself in you may at some point ask yourself, “is it worth it?”. Well my friend the answer is HELL YES IT’S WORTH IT. So what makes it worth it? I mean really, you get shit detail, you wash dishes, mop floors, take out the trash, blah blah blah.

Let’s try to answer the question of what makes it worth it. First, if you are crying about having to do prospect stuff then you should stop reading right now, go see a patch holder and hand over your stuff. As a patch holder, you will still have to do all of these things but you will be expected to see what needs to be done and do it on your own. Sure you may or may not still have people sending you on crazy errands and such but those things that are being asked of you just shows your future brothers that you are willing to do whatever it takes.

Where is the WIIFM? (What’s in it for me)
How about a family, how about people you can count on no matter what, people that will jump out of bed to help you out at 3 am when they have to work the next day, people who love you at your worst. Yes, all the prospect time in the world is worth it.

I can’t speak for all clubs but I can tell you for a fact that my brothers never asked me to do anything they wouldn’t do themselves. Not only would they do it but they have done it and they still do it. When I was a prospect my brothers would still check to make sure I was ok. My VP once even came in to help me wash dishes. He said he was just being a good brother.  Later I thanked him for it and he taught me a valuable lesson, he told me that he doesn’t need to be thanked for working at his own house. That one day when/if I ever patched in that it would be my house too and that we would take care of it together. He was right, now I’m a little more grown up and I have a patch and my brothers are still right there to check on me and help me do all the same chores I did as a prospect.

Remember when you were a kid, you had to take out the trash, help mom cook, fold your own cloths? Then you grew up a little, got your own house, and you still had to do these things. Your parents were just helping you learn so that when you grew up you could take care of yourself. Your future brothers are doing the same thing right now, they are teaching you and helping you grow and one day when/if you ever patch in, their house will be your house too.

Good Luck to you future patch holder, learn all you can from your club members and nurture those bonds so that they will las a lifetime.

And if any of my brothers are reading this, THANK YOU for being there for me and helping me grow.
