We all get in a funk. We all go through difficult times. The one thing I am learning is that self-pity is a dangerous cycle that will keep you in the rabbit hole. Self pity does absolutely nothing for you and where you want to go in your life. Self pity gives you more self pity. How do you get out of this cycle? One way is to practice gratitude. It might be hard at first, but gratitude is the foundation where everything else is built. 

Stop your self pity and start your growth.

Are you stressed? We all get stressed at some points in our lives. Personal and professional pressures seem to consume our day's and sometimes it can feel overwhelming. I know. I want to share a technique that I have started to utilize that helps ground me. Some of you might have heard of this technique, but some probably haven't. 

It's called: 5 , 4 , 3 , 2 1

If you have a moment sit down and try to relax. Do the following. 

5 - See five things that are in front of you.

4 - Feel four things you can touch.

3 - Things you can hear.

2 - Things you can smell.

1 - Thing you can taste.

 

This is a powerful exercise that I hope you utilize throughout YOUR day. Remember, stress doesn't have to consume you.

One of the most powerful things you can do with your life is figuring out your WHY? If you have done that, you are ahead of most people. Most people struggle with their why including myself sometimes. Once you have your WHY the HOW will come to you. Most people worry about HOW things will come to pass. Once you believe they will the HOW is going to work itself out.

So excited to have my friend Chad Bruckner on the show. Chad M. Bruckner is Managing Partner and Licensed Private Investigator at Pennsylvania-based Intercounty Investigations & Solutions — a one-stop shop for cutting-edge private investigations, background screens, law enforcement training, consultation and more.

Results matter, and after accruing high-level expertise via two decades of experience in law enforcement and the military, Chad is uniquely positioned to provide private citizens, corporate entities, law firms and government agencies with the solutions they require.

Detective. Undercover Officer. Background Investigator. Mobile Device Examiner. Lead Field Training Officer. Patrol Squad Leader. Chad held all those critical roles, and more, during a 13-year career in law enforcement serving a large borough in the Philadelphia suburbs. Having conducted more than 1,000 serious and often complex criminal investigations — including homicides, kidnappings, narcotics, fraud, sex crimes, and more — Chad developed and employed a razor-sharp set of skills to solve cases and elicit numerous confessions.

As a detective, Chad established a trailblazing Street Crimes Unit that solved 100% of all shootings and robberies within his police department’s jurisdiction during his tenure. The unit made over 250 felony drug arrests between 2012 and 2015, and was responsible for a 40% reduction in crime during that period. At the same time, Chad became a court-recognized expert in several disciplines — exceptionally valuable expertise that he now brings to his clients.

Prior to his law enforcement career, Chad served eight years in the United States Army. A combat veteran, he supervised more than 300 operations in Iraq as an Infantry Squad Leader. During his military service, Chad was recognized once as Battalion NCO of the Year and in 2004 had the distinct honor of being recognized as Brigade (approx. 4,000 soldiers) NCO of the year.

A certified police instructor who currently teaches a variety of courses to Police Academy cadets, Chad is also a trained volunteer with Police Crisis Intervention & Stress Management teams. One of his many missions is to serve first responders on the front lines and help reduce the stigma of mental health advocacy in first responders. Chad teaches courses designed to help individuals maximize their potential and chart a path for peak performance, leadership development and improved well-being.

Chad holds a master’s degree in Digital Forensics and a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from DeSales University.

A great interview.

I was asked recently how I get through the challenges I am facing. My response is always the same. I believe that better days are ahead and I will be stronger and more resilient because of my challenges. And, I am putting forth the ACTION to make this happen for me. You have challenges too. We all do. What are you doing to change your circumstances? Are you hoping that things will get better? Hope is never a good strategy by itself. There has to be ACTION behind it. 

You have to believe in yourself first, before anything can come to you. Visualization, Manifestation and Meditation are all good starts towards achieving your goals and dreams, but remember it all comes down to the INNER WORK first.

It was such an honor to have my next guest on the show, Michael Gier. Michael is an award-winning director/producer. He owns and runs Gier Productions, a Full-Service Global Film & Video Production Company. Michael produced and directed the award-winning documentary film – Wounded Heroes.

Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) among our veterans is a serious problem with over 20 veterans a day taking their lives by suicide. And just like veterans; firefighters, police officers, and other first responders not only deal with PTS, but they also have very high suicide rates. Most are given prescription drugs but as many have said, medication is just a band-aid over a wound that will never heal. Our Heroes deserve more than just a band-aid and so director/producer Michael Gier went on a mission and found successful alternative treatments that give anyone battling PTS their lives back. This award-winning film gives HOPE and literally saves lives.

 

A great and informative interview.
