Lessons From Veterans: Meerrkat

ALASKA, CP Army Hub Headquarters – In this weekly series, we pay our CP Army veterans a penny for their thoughts. We’re here to find and share their wisdom through interviews, so what can we learn from this edition?

——————————————–

We define wisdom as knowledge, and the capacity to make due use of it. And in our first edition, CP Army Hub finds wisdom from legend Meerrkat, who earns our respect from several years in armies and an excellent reputation.

Experience

Meerrkat has spent around 6 years in armies. He started out in Dark Warriors and moved on to the army we would know him for, Doritos of CP. Although Meerrkat joined as a regular member, he slowly but surely made his way up to a trusted Dorito. When he joined back in the community, DCP welcomed him as a 3rd in command. From that point he moved up to be a key leader, and a recognized member of CP Armies. Since that point, he has learned how to be a vigorous leader and advisor. Now let’s go beneath the surface of his history and find some of his deeper thoughts he’s learned through all his time in Club Penguin Armies.

Thanks for letting me take your class. I’d like to ask, what is the biggest theme you’ve tried learning or implementing in CPA? Be it fairness, trust, communication, ect.

Fairness. There’s always been a lot of biased judging in the past and stuff getting rigged so I just feel like if CPA has judges that are trustworthy, it can lead to very fun battles and no arguments.

That’s great! What was the hardest challenge you overcame in your CP armies career? How were you able to?

Getting out of my comfort zone. I was never too involved in DCP back then. I would usually only attend whatever events I could and made a couple of friends. When I rejoined DCP in November, I was hired as a 3ic so it was a huge learning experience for me. Even when I got promoted to Main Leader in January 2020, I still didn’t know what to do. I continued to recruit and worked on making DCP a friendly community but when it came to events, I would lead only one or two tactics. I really started pushing myself in March. I started to lead events more often and learned what I had to do as a leader.

Have you seen any similarities between what you learn here and what you can bring back to real life? Any specific things?

Not really, I’m honestly a really quiet and shy person irl Other than that, I guess the only similarity I can see is that I always push myself to do better

Okay, last question, what is one wisdom you take to heart that you can bestow upon other growing army members?

Be confident in yourself. Try to get out of your comfort zone. If you want something in life, you’ll get it if you work hard for it

We can tell that Meerrkat has figured out an arrangement of things from this community. Our legend knew that he must learn confidence to be a proficient leader. And there are plenty of ways we can practice this wisdom, both in the army position you’re in, and in real-life. Using what Meerrkat has shared with us, let’s break out of comfort zones and strive for confidence everywhere. Come back for another edition of Lessons From Legends where you hear from your favorites and learn life changing ideas!
