"A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval" - Mark Twain.

What was he talking about? He was talking about having confidence. Confidence is the difference between success and failure. Think about it. If you aren't confident in yourself why would anyone else be confident in you?

You have to stop putting yourself down. The self-deprecating talk has to stop because it's not only not healthy for you, but it's not leading you anywhere. 

Remember you are worthy, you are deserving and you can be the best person YOU want to be. You just have to have MORE CONFIDENCE. 

Here are a few take-aways you can do right now:

1) Write down a favorite confidence quote and put it somewhere you can see it throughout the day

2) Find a picture of yourself when you were feeling confident. Maybe it was graduation from the academy. Maybe it was your wedding day. It can be any picture where you felt great and confident about the future. Put it somewhere you will see it all day. 

You see it's not only important to see this quote and to see this picture, it's also very important that YOU FEEL the feeling of being confident. 

Be more confident and change your life - for the better.

Go out and conquer you day.

My next guests is Jeffrey Deskovic.

Jeffrey is an American man from upstate New York known for having been wrongfully convicted in 1990 at the age of seventeen of raping, beating, and strangling Angela Correa, a 15-year-old high school classmate.  

He made a false confession to police, which he withdrew, and his DNA was excluded from that left at the scene. He was nonetheless convicted, based on police testimony that he had confessed. He served sixteen years, although he continued to maintain his innocence and appealed his conviction. He requested post-conviction DNA testing, but the DA's office refused to accept his lay request.

After a new DA was elected and Jeffrey gained support by the Innocence Project in 2006 DNA testing was conducted for Jeffrey. It excluded his DNA from the evidence at the crime scene. Significantly, the forensic DNA was found to match that of an inmate already serving time for murder. The latter man confessed to the attack on Correa and was convicted of her death.

Jeffrey was exonerated and released in 2006. He has become an advocate for criminal justice reform. In 2014 a jury found in favor of Jeffrey and awarded him $41.6 million in a federal civil suit against the county for wrongful imprisonment. Due to his pretrial settlement with the county, Jeff was limited to receive $10 million. He has set up a foundation to work for criminal justice reform.

 

The award-winning short film, Conviction, tells the story of Jeffrey and this must-see documentary was made by Jia Wertz.  

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12269178/

Police Accountability is an important topic not only for law enforcement executives, but the community as a whole.  I want to tell you about an amazing company that can help your organization in this area. Officer Survey.

They help your organization build profound relationships with your community by allowing community members to provide feedback after every dispatched call. Plus, an early intervention system to identify issues at the earliest possible stage so that intervention and support can be offered before it’s too late!

96% percent of respondents in a Gallup survey support changing management practices to increase police accountability.

48% of Americans said they have a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in police, down from 53% the previous year according to the latest Gallup poll.

Ever since my next guest was a small child, he was surrounded by law enforcement.

His childhood started out with constant daydreaming of becoming an accomplished Police Officer. Tony Malik accomplished his dream and so much more.

He is passionate about his job, which makes it hard to put into words for him. He can’t begin to describe the meaning behind the moments on a shooting call, when he had to save his partner’s life, but he has done it. The training and sacrifice all first responders make daily, is selfless and brave. These impactful occasions have led him down a path to create, "The Badge Life”. A very popular apparel and fitness gear company for first responders.

Tony was taught to have a "Never Settle" attitude and to push yourself for what you believe in. With the right tools and mindset, it's amazing what you can accomplish. Success is a long journey that begins with a decision. In everything we do we must remain true to ourselves and respectful of others. 

Encourage others by starting with yourself. Be all that you imagined you could be. Never Settle.

In this episode, Tony talks about his career, the environment of law enforcement, recruiting, The Badge Life and so much more.

A great show.

Do you ever think, why aren't certain things happening in your life? I know I do. Sometimes I feel like the things I really want in my life are not happening and that can really get me down. However, the older I get the more I realize the more I try to force something into my life, the more that life pushes me back. I have learned that sometimes I have to go with the current instead of against it. What about you? Are you going with the flow and going against it?

I have learned the more I go against the current, the more stress I have in my life. I have learned that whatever happens is going to happen because I can't control a lot of things in my life. What about you?

You are exactly in the place you need to be right now. I know that is hard to hear sometimes, but it's the truth. There is a plan for you. You just have to believe and be grateful now. 

Go out and conquer your day and week.
