Microcast Monday 

 

I think a lot of people get caught up in the mistakes they have made personally and professionally and they dwell in that realm a lot. I know I do sometimes. I think of all the things I should have said differently, the compassion and empathy I should have given and so on. However, I do know that I continue to learn from my mistakes and grow from them. I encourage you to do the same. I also encourage you to BELIEVE that you ARE NOT DEFINED BY YOUR PAST. You have a chance RIGHT NOW to forge a new path with what you have learned. 

YOU CAN DO IT. ANYONE CAN DO IT.

 

Go out and conquer your day and remember you are LOVED. Reach out to me at www.cjevolution.com

This is powerful show that will keep you on the edge of your seat. My friend, Victor Avila is back on the show. He is a former ICE Special Agent and is the Author of his new book, Agent Under Fire: A Murder and Manifesto.

“Former ICE Special Agent Victor Avila’s story of survival and courage is a harrowing must read. His dedication to obtaining justice for his partner, Jaime Zapata, who was murdered just inches away while on assignment in Mexico, is honorable and a reflection of his character. The government coverup of what happened and their retaliation against him for telling the truth is unforgivable. You won’t be able to put this book down.”

Agent Under Fire: A Murder and a Manifesto is a true story of unprecedented corruption, international intrigue, human trafficking, money laundering, drug-running, mass murders, and government evasion. Chalk full of page-turning stories and revelatory insights into Mexico’s criminal underworld, this book moves beyond the everyday true crime memoir and delves into the larger question of what it means for a family man to put his life on the line every day to topple some of the cruelest criminal organizations known to mankind. The book also serves as a manifesto, exploring solutions to misguided immigration policies and offering a unique perspective on what it will take to control our southern border and protect vulnerable American families.

You are going to love this next show. Conrad Weaver stopped by show. Conrad Weaver is an Award-winning producer and President and owner of Conjostudios, LLC, a video production company based in Emmitsburg, Maryland.  Conrad received a Mid-America Regional EMMY® Award for his 2014 documentary feature, the Great American Wheat Harvest (2014).  His second feature length documentary film, Thirsty Land (2016) was completed in early 2016 and is currently available on Amazon Prime.  The award-winning documentary, Heroin’s Grip (2018) is Conrad’s third feature length documentary, and he is the executive producer and writer on a feature narrative film called Scars of an Orphan.

Conrad is creating the must anticipated documentary called PTSD911. Emergency first responders are suffering from post-traumatic stress in record numbers, 
but they are often afraid of losing their job if they ask for help; this must change. PTSD911 is a documentary film about real people: normal, average human beings who have chosen to work in professions that require above average heroism, fortitude, and resolve. These men and women have jobs that require a willingness to face things that most of us can’t even imagine yet maintain a high level of dignity and professionalism.  First responders in fact repeatedly see and experience things that most of us will never see, causing compound issues related to post-traumatic stress injuries and disorders.

 

Such a great and informative show.

As you head into your Monday, I want to talk to you about your continuing evolution. As you know, I wrote a book called EVOLVE in 2019, and it's now more than ever applicable to me. It needs to be for you too. As you hear this show, I want you to FEEL and BELIEVE that your life is amazing and anything is possible for you.

1) E - Elevate your mind. Everything starts with the correct mindset. Learn how to cultivate gratitude and start every day in gratitude.

3) O - Others. Who are you surrounding yourself with. THIS IS CRITICAL to your personal and professional success. 

4) L - Love yourself. Look, if you don't love yourself and who you are with all of your weaknesses and strengths, how are you going to LOVE anyone else?

5) V - Victories. Live in the moment. Celebrate your victories, because you have many of them. Your alive right? Go from there.

6) E - Everyday be your best. Yes, the job can get to you. I know, I have been there. But, if you show up and give your best al all the time your attitude, motivation and work product will show.
