Such an honor to have Retired Police Chief Rodney Muterspaw on the show. He had a very successful 30-year law enforcement career, and he is also the author of the successful book, The Blue View: The Uncut Journal of an Ohio Police Chief.

This book is an unedited and raw journal written by a police officer over a thirty-year period. From his first day in the police academy to his last day as the Chief of Police in Middletown, Ohio, home of Hillbilly Elegy, you will feel as though you are right there with the author through the entire book, in a uniform, in a cruiser, and in his personal life.

Never written to be released to the public, this easy-to-read format portrays the actual unfiltered personal journals of Chief Rodney Muterspaw, an award-winning Ohio Police Chief and Congressional guest at the Presidential State of the Union. You will feel the gamut of emotions as you follow him as a rookie, a patrol officer, investigator, narcotics officer, internal affairs supervisor, a Chief of Police, and a parent in one of the most well-known smaller cities in the Midwest.

Many topics discussed in this great interview.

Do you have a morning routine? If you do great, but if you don’t, I recommend you develop one. One that will fit your needs. My morning starts with the following:

  • Gratitude – Before my feet hit the floor in the morning, I am going through a gratitude practice. I start will all the people that are in my life and go from there. This one practice can change your life. The more grateful you are the more of what you want will come into your life.
  • Pray – I pray early in the morning after my gratitude.
  • Meditate – I meditate for at least 10 minutes. There are many apps out there to help you get started. Here is one: https://www.calm.com/
  • Journal – I write down my daily goals and objectives and other important information that I want to accomplish – I also journal at night to recap the day.
  • Work out – I spend at least 1 to 1.5 hours at the gym. Your body runs it all. You have to take care of your body. When you take care of your body you also take care of your mind.

Like anything a morning routine takes time to develop, and it takes dedication. Remember any change in your life is going to take work. When you develop a morning routine / ritual it will soon become habit.

Your habits and routines can change your life for the better, of worse.

Develop your morning ritual today.

So excited to tell you about ONNIT. Who is ONNIT? We’re athletes, biohackers, professionals, retirees, parents, gamers, fighters, tradespeople, and forever students. We’re all human, trying to get a little better at what we love every day. The human body is our instrument that we play to achieve greatness and optimizing it for peak performance requires the proper nutrition, fitness, and supplementation. ONNIT provides these foundations to support your human journey.

I take my Alpha Brain every day. Alpha BRAIN is a dietary supplement that helps support cognitive functions, including memory, mental speed and focus. Check out their link here:

I talk to a lot of people, and one of the common themes I hear is that a lot of people believe that they are defined by the mistakes they have make in their past. We all have made mistakes and failures and we all will continue make them in the future, but that doesn’t define who you are.

Research shows that we have, on average, 70k thoughts a day. And 90% of those thoughts are the same thoughts we had the day before. Imagine if you changed 5% of your thoughts. Say 10%. You could change your life for the better.

Remember that ever day is a RESET. Every day you can forge a new path in your life. You have that power. You are not defined by your past.

Go forth and conquer your day.

I like the word Catalyst. When I hear that word I think of events in my life that have propelled me forward. What was the event in your life that propelled you forward or made you change? We all have Catalysts in our lives at different points, but most people either don't take advantage of them, or they ignore them. Your life is only going to change if YOU change your life. 

Maybe you went through a divorce or separation. Maybe you lost your job or didn't get that promotion you wanted. These examples are tough to go through and I have experienced all of these. But, after I reflected I realized these were events in my life that set me on the path to something greater. 

Start looking at your setbacks as paths to a better you.  Take advantage of your Catalyst Events and build a better you. 

Stay tuned for great guests this week and reach out to me at www.cjevolution.com
