Hello everyone and welcome back to the show. Special thanks to all the brave first responders who keep our communities safe. Thank you very much! A very big shout out to all the Veterans out there! Thank you so much for your service. Without your sacrifice, we wouldn't have this great country. We love all of you!

Thanks to our sponsor, Four Sigmatic. If you love coffee, you are going to love the products from Four Sigmatic. From cocoa's to coffee this great company makes amazing products. My personal favorite is the Lions Mane Mushroom Coffee. You will love it! Check the link out here: www.cjevolution.com

If you are struggling to keep up with your extra duty program I want to tell you about Extra Duty Solutions. This company helps law enforcement agencies add efficiency and effectiveness to their extra duty programs by offering assistance in the following areas: Client interaction, Scheduling, Officer Payments, Feedback, Problem Resolution and much more. Their services are provided at NO COST to the department and a minimal cost to the client. There programs can also be customized to meet the goals and unique needs of any agency.

Again, special thanks to all of our veterans. Here are some ways you can show appreciation to our brave men and women.

1) Show up - There are many events to celebrate veterans. Pick one and show your support. Veterans love this!

 

2) Donate - There is always a need to more resources. There are many organizations that you can donate to that support veterans.

 

3) Ask a veteran about their service - We all know someone who has served and today is a great day to ask them about it. Remember to be supportive but not intrusive. Some vets don't like talking about certain things.

 

4) Write a veteran - If you know a veteran, send them a card or an e-card to show support. Don't know a veteran? Look up the closest military installation and send a card there. These small acts are very appreciated.

 

5) Remember not to confuse Veterans Day with Memorial Day - There is a difference. Veterans day is a day to honor ones who have served and who are still with us. Memorial day is to honor the brave who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Combing the two and diminish the significance of both .

 

6) Get outdoors with a veteran - Spending time outdoors with a veteran or a veterans family can improve physical and mental health and boots emotional well-being.

Andy Harvey is in the house. Andy is a motivational speaker and a law enforcement trainer. Any retired as The Chief of Police in Palestine, Texas and has over 23 years of experience in an urban and racially diverse community.

Hello everyone and welcome back to Microcast Monday. Special thanks to all the brave men and women who protect us every day. Thank you so much for what you do, and keep up the great work.

Special thanks to our partners Detectachem and Four Sigmatic

On this Microcast Monday I want to talk about your 4th Quarter Check Up. How are you doing now as we head into the end of the year? Specifically, how are you doing in the following areas:

1) Health - Everything revolves around your health. When your health suffers, everything else will too. Are you keeping the promises that you made to yourself or others at the beginning of the year? We generally don't focus on our health until something goes wrong. Remember it's never to late to start a new path.

2) Finances - How are your finances? Are you on the right path? Are you achieving the goals you set for yourself or your family at the beginning of the year? Remember its never too late to start a new good habit.

 

3) Relationships - Relationships are the key to personal and professional success. Cultivate and nourish your relationships. Are you on track this year?

 

4) Career - Are you on track with your career goals that you made at the beginning of the year? If yes, great if not what happened? Remember you still have the rest of the year to go!

You might have more categories to add to this, but these are some of the most important I use for my personal check ups. Remember that you need to take care of yourself FIRST in order to take care of others.

On this Microcast Monday, I wanted to talk about a subject that each of us will face someday, and that is the subject of death. More importantly, the regrets that a lot of people take to their graves. Bronnie Ware is an Australian Nurse who worked for many years in Palliative Care, where she cared for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives. She then took her experiences and what she recorded over the years and wrote a book called The 5 Regrets of the Dying.

Here are the 5 Regrets as witnessed by Bronnie Ware:

 

1) "I wish I would have had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me."

2)  "I wish I hadn't worked so hard." - I know you have to pay the bills and provide, but remember that your children go up fast.

Relationships and love are what matters in the end.

3)  "I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings."

4)  "I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends."

5)  "I wish I had let myself be happier."

 

Go out there and conquer the day - Remember to live your true life and not a life in regret.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the show. Thanks to all the brave men and women who protect us every day. Thank you so much for what you do. Keep up the great work! You have much support!

In this ever changing and dangerous environment, I am glad that a company like Detectachem is helping protect our brave men and women by officer treat detection that fits in the palm of your hand. Detecting illicit drugs and explosives. Check their link out on www.cjevolution.com

If you love coffee, and I know most of you do, then you will love the products from Four Sigmatic. They have great products you will love – most notably their Lions Mane Mushroom Coffee. Check out their link at www.cjevolution.com

All the guests that come on the show are amazing. They are uplifting, inspiring and motivational. But, every once in awhile a guest will come on that really humbles me. As I was talking to my next guest, Terry Tucker, I was thinking of all the things that I complain about in my life and I was ashamed.

You see, Terry has cancer. He was diagnosed with skin cancer a few years back, fought it off, only for it to come back. In fact, doctors are telling Terry he has about a year to live. Yet, Terry has an amazing attitude that centers around self-improvement, gratitude and continuing to give back to his fellow man.

​Terry has reinvented himself frequently over his professional career. After he graduated from The Citadel, he was employed in the Marketing Department at the corporate headquarters of Wendy’s International in Dublin, Ohio. From there, he worked in hospital administration for Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. After getting married, he became the Customer Service Manager for an academic publishing company in Santa Barbara, California. Subsequently, he was a police officer in Cincinnati, Ohio. Following a family move to Texas, he started a school security consulting business and coached high school basketball in Houston. Each time he took on a new job, he had to develop new skills and faced different challenges. There was always a significant learning curve with each new position. 

Terry later started Motivational Check, for a simple reason. When he was a recruit in the Cincinnati Police Academy, it was a phrase any of his classmates could shout if they needed encouragement, motivation or support. The response from the class was to answer with a loud “84,” signifying our Recruit Class number and letting the person needing the reassurance know that they were all there for each other.

If you are besieged with anything in your life, know there are people available, willing, and able to help you. Terry understands what it is like to fight for your life. If you do not quit, you can never be defeated.

However, the responsibility for altering your life is entirely up to YOU. Whining, complaining, and blaming others for your plight will not enhance your experience. Motivation alone will not cause you to progress. YOU must want to make the change and commit to it every minute of every day. There are no days off when attempting to make significant and lasting improvements. 

Such a great and inspirational episode you are going to love.

Even the most successful people in the world still have coaches that help them on the daily basis. Here are some indications that you need a life coach.

1) You feel lost - We all have been here before. Maybe you feel lost right now. A life coach can help you correct course and get you on the right path.

2) You doubt yourself - A life coach can help you find clarity in your life and give you that confidence you need to realizing your dreams.

3) You have a vision but no path - A life coach can help you with a plan of action.

4) You want to change professions - A life coach can help with your confidence and assurance so you can take that step forward.

5) Improve your health - A health coach can help you accomplish this.

6) You don't have time to waste - We are all busier than ever and you don't have time to waste. Working with a coach can save time because you will come up solutions faster and keep on your path.

7) You want to make more money - A good life coach can guide you in ways to make more money so you can spend time on what you want in life.

8) Are you stressed - We all get stressed at one point or another trying to do things by ourselves. A coach can teach you relaxation techniques and exercises that can help you eliminate stress.

9) You need a confidence boost - Everyone can use a tune up in this area. A life coach can work with you on self-assertion and support you as you take risks that make your life better and help your dreams come true.

I look forward to helping you on your journey.

So excited to have my next guest on, Eric Standop. Eric decodes faces and facial expressions similarly to the work of a body language expert. Whether we like it or not, our face and micro expressions can tell a world about us. Eric has worked with CEOs to transform their companies and law enforcement consultation for years. By concentrating on cues like behavior, gestures, facial expressions, and micro expressions, face reading adds a new layer to police interrogation.  

 

We all have the intuitive ability to read and interpret the feelings and expressions of those around us. There is a reason a poker face needs to be mastered and why facial micro expressions can indicate the difference between truth and lies.

Using a combination of three different schools of face reading, along with a scientific accuracy to detect the most fleeting micro expressions, master face reader Eric Standop is able to read personality, character, emotions, and even the state of a person’s health—all from simply glancing at their face. 

With the release of his book, READ THE FACE, Eric is offering his sought-after readings to the media to show just how much your face can tell the world about you. 

Check out Eric’s TED talk here:

I wanted to take a few moments today and talk about believing in yourself. I know we have talked about this before, but I recently spoke with an officer from an agency in the mid west who is thinking about leaving the profession after 14 years. He wants to try other things. However, he believes he can't do anything else. This type of mindset will never get you what you want. If you don't believe in yourself who will?

When I retired I was scared to death, but I knew deep down everything would work out and it has. I wouldn't allow the naysayers and my fear to dominate my thoughts and you shouldn't either.  I believed in myself and do everyday. You have to develop that mindset. The Officer I was speaking with also had people close to him telling him he couldn't do anything else. This is BS. Don't allow others to sabotage your dreams. We have this one life only. You don't want to be like many who regret a lot in the end. I gave the officer some other tips and suggestions and he told me he is going to take that big step to go after his dreams. That is AWESOME!
