On to the show with Craig “Sawman” Sawyer. Such an honor having Sawman stop by the podcast.

Craig grew up near Houston, TX and got his tactical start in the U.S. Marine Corps. He quickly transitioned to the U.S. Navy to pursue high-level Special Operations as a U.S. Navy SEAL. As an Operator on the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), Craig gained critical combat experience that is now being utilized to protect those who cannot protect themselves. Because of his experience as a federal criminal investigator, Craig is uniquely qualified to run joint sting operations with law enforcement agencies and allied NGOs.

Sawman is now dedicating his life to raising awareness about the epidemic of child sex trafficking, rescuing victims, and putting predators behind bars. Craig created Vets4childrescue in 2017.

On the show we talk about Craig’s early years, some background on SEAL Training and DEVGRU selection, a little bit of political insight and his great and much needed work with Vets4childrescue.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the show. Special thanks to all the brave men and women who work in the criminal justice system. Thank you so much for your bravery and service to your communities and this great country.

As you head into the new year I know many of you struggle with personal and professional obstacles in your life. As a former law enforcement professional I know first hand how difficult the job can be. For years I struggled until I sought out coaches and mentors that helped me through the tough times.

I want to help you with my EVOLVE Personal Coaching. My message is simple. I help law enforcement and first responders who are overwhelmed with personal and professional obstacles to build self-confidence and resiliency so that they can become stronger and more happier in their lives.

It tastes like regular coffee, and its better for you. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. Head over to www.cjevolution.com and see the link to Four Sigmatic.

On this Microcast Monday episode, I want to talk a little about the benefits of sleep. I remember as a first responder, I thought I could get by on 4-5 hours of sleep a night and I did for many years. I thought with a little sleep I would be operating at 100%. Wrong! Your body needs it's sleep and so much is connected with good sleep. Your health, Your mindset and your motivation are connected for starters.

Here are some benefits of good sleep:

1) You will have a sharper brain - When you don't get enough sleep you might have problems remembering details and recalling events.

2) Mood boost - When you get enough sleep you are generally in a better mood.

3) Healthier Heart - When you sleep your blood pressure goes down. When you don't get enough sleep your blood pressure stays elevated.

4) Athletic Achievement - Lack of sleep robs you of your motivation, which gets you to the finish line.

5) Steadier blood sugar - Not getting enough sleep can increase your chances of diabetes.

6) Germ Fighting - Lack of sleep can affect the way your body fights off germs. You can get sick more often.

7) Weight control - When you are well rested, your are less hungry.

Is too much sleep bad? Too much of anything isn't good for you. Research indicates you should get at least 6-8 hours of sleep a night. Find out more information here:

On the to show with Herb Thompson.

Herb had a successful military career in which became the only person ever to earn the Green Beret and Army Drill Sergeant of the Year award. Finishing up his military career he had doubts about leaving the military and becoming a civilian. The Army was the only thing he knew since enlisting at the age of 17.

Like most veterans, the transition process was not easy for him, and he had bad days filled with self-doubt. However, after over 2,000 informational interviews, thousands of hours of internet research, and hundreds of hours of personal reflection, he found his way. He landed a job at a top-tier Management Consulting firm and a seat in the Executive MBA program at Cornell University. In his free time, Herb has mentored hundreds of transitioning service members.

 

Herb wrote the very popular book The Mission Transition. This book is for military members who are transitioning into the civilian world, maybe now and in the future.

This book is not a checklist to follow for a soft landing upon exiting the military. There is no possible checklist, every service member’s situation is unique. What Herb has done is lay out a different approach and way of thinking for the transition. Instead of teaching you what to think he opens your eyes with how to think about the transition.

Herb doesn’t sugar coat the process but reveals his failures in transition and demonstrates vulnerability with personal anecdotes from hanging up his uniform. The reality of transition. The hard questions you need to answer. Techniques to be successful. Ways to succeed and others destined for failure.

Herb is also an ambassador of Green Marines.

The Green Marines believe we need stop relying on the Government and corporations to make changes on our behalf. We need to stand up and take account of our own actions, our own choices. Be responsible for our own future and make changes from the base up. This is a generation where the peoples voice is stronger than ever, and we have the potential to make real changes that matter.

The Green Marines welcome everyone and celebrate them at their best. We help others get out and reconnect with the planet one micro mission at a time.

The Green Marines provide inspiration, aspiration and education all in one place.
We advocate and encourage positive solutions to modern life.
We believe in small, impactful action and that small steps aggregate to make global change.

The Green Marines provide micro solutions from across a diverse community of advocates.
We don’t preach or push green values.
We don't attempt to create change by shouting, blaming, or indicting the actions of others.

The Green Marines are not haters, we are the positive media.
We build a community with a common goal and drive to make life better, not in a ‘hold hands
around a tree’ kind of way but through micro action, adventure and respect for the environment.
We don't talk about all going off grid tomorrow.

We advocate bending the current trend away from anonymity and back towards a positive future.

Such an amazing individual

Hello everyone and welcome back to the show. This is the 1st Microcast Monday of 2020 and I am very excited you tuned into the show. Special thanks to all the brave men and women who serve and protect us everyday. Thank you!

If you haven't received my book EVOLVE reach out to me! I want to get you an autographed copy of this must have book I wrote for The Criminal Justice Professional like you. If you would like a FREE eBook version of EVOLVE head over to www.cjvolution.com

Are you struggling with obstacles or roadblocks in your life? I know for many years I did too until I sought out and received personal coaching and personal mentors that helped me overcome adversity and achieve success in my life. I want to help you in this new year learn to overcome, achieve and succeed in your personal and professional life with my EVOLVE Personal Coaching. Sign up for a FREE 45minute Discovery Call here:

https://www.cjevolution.com/personal-coaching/

For the rest of this great day I want you to think about and reflect on what I am about to tell you.

Forgive yourself.

Forgive yourself for making those mistakes you have make with your personal and professional life. Unless you forgive yourself first, it will be very hard for you to move forward and be successful. Here are some ways to help you.

1) Remember that it's ok to feel guilty, but understand there is a difference between guilt and shame. Guilt serves a purpose, shame does not.

2) Admit you messed up - We all mess up at points, but stop blaming others.

3) Apologize to anyone you may have hurt.

4) Imagine what forgiveness would feel like.

5) Write yourself an apology.

6) Learn from your mistakes - Stop doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. That is insane.

7) Be Patient - Don't rush things, especially the feelings of others. First you can't control it and when you rush things you will probably make them worse.

8) Don't try to change other people - You can't. But you can change yourself.

9) Practice what you preach.

Hello everyone and welcome back to Microcast Monday. A big thanks to all the brave men and women who serve in the criminal justice system. We honor, cherish and above all LOVE YOU ALL. Keep up the great work.

I was in Fort Lauderdale this weekend at the event of 2019 - The Conclave of Warriors. I was hanging out with amazing people, learning and networking with  all weekend. Hanging with people like Rafa Conde, Brad Lea, Craig "The Sawman" Sawyer, Chris Cavallini and many more great and inspiring people. Find out about Conclave of Warriors here: https://www.conclaveofwarriors.com

Find Rafa here: https://www.manofwar.live/

In this episode, I wanted to give you some of the takeaways from this amazing event. There are so many but I want to give you some of the information that I thought was really good. Hopefully you will too.

- What are you spending your energy on? With good people who are motivating and inspiring you or people who do the opposite?

- Most of us spend too much time putting your energy at the wrong things. Are you over-investing in your career and under-investing in

   your family? I know some of you are.

- Start working on how many people you can help. If you are doing that already great, if not start today.

- Be Intentional at everything you do.

- What does success look like to you?

- If you want to start a business or if you have one remember that People buy solutions. Business is solving problems.

- STOP WORRYING ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT YOU OR THINKING ABOUT YOU!

- Life Strategy - Your choices about allocating your personal time, energy & talent ultimately shape your life.

- If you want more, DO MORE!

- Mirror test- What kind of person do you want to see in the morning when you look in the mirror? You have the power to change you if 

   you don't like what you see in the mirror.
