2020 has been filled was a devastating year for a lot of Americans. Jobs were lost, businesses were closed and unfortunately lives were lost. Though, through the doom and gloom we have persevered and learned how to adapt.

As first responders this is second nature to you. This is why you are the best in the world and will continue to be.

In this episode, I wanted to share some of my top shows from 2020 and little snippets of great these great interviews. All the guests who have come on the show during 2020 have been amazing, and I am forever grateful for spending time with them and learning from them.  

In these proceeding clips these amazing guests talk about everything from first responder mental health, being incarcerated and finding purpose to improving the mental health resources for our brave men and women.

Hello everyone and welcome back to Microcast Monday. A short burst of motivation and inspiration to get you started on your new week. Special thanks to all the brave men and women who work in the criminal justice field. Thank you for what you do. Remember you are honored cherished and you are loved. 

This is the last Microcast Monday before we head into the new year and I want to thank EVERYONE for making this podcast the success it is. Because of YOU we are a TOP Ranked Criminal Justice Podcast. 

As you head into the new year, you need to focus on YOU. Then you need to focus on the following FIVE things that have to do with YOU.

1) Health - Your body runs it all - If you aren't healthy or you constantly feel thoughts of being unhealthy, EVERYTHING else will suffer. 

2) Your Mind - Mindset is key. Remember you are a MAGNET. Like attracts Like. If you are constantly thinking about the things you don't want in your life - guess what? You will get what you don't want.

3) Family and Friends - Why didn't I put this first? Because if you don't have yourself in a good place how can you be good for your family and friends. I am not trying to imply that family and friends are not important, because they obviously are. However, you need to take care of yourself FIRST. 

4) Finances - Money isn't everything, but it is important in our lives. If your finances are a mess then it will no doubt contribute to your stress and worry going into the new year. Make getting your finances in order a priority in your life. 

5) Work - Not that work isn't important, but if you are not taking care of yourself then your work will suffer. I speak from experience. And, if you hate your job, a lot of people do, then it's time to make a change. There are plenty of opportunities out there. 

 

There are more we can put on this list, but I think these are important for you to get you started in 2021. They will be the foundation of your success. 

 

Remember that you can do anything you want in your life. Reach out to me, I would love to hear from you.

Hello everyone and welcome back to Microcast Monday. These short shows are designed to set you on the right direction for your day and week.

Thank you for tuning into the Criminal Justice Evolution Podcast. We know you have many options but thank you for spending some of your valuable time with us. That is why we continue to grow and why we are a top ranked show. It you haven’t subscribed to the show, please do. Also, please take a moment and give us that 5-Star rating and review on Apple Podcasts.

Special thanks to all the brave men and women who work in the criminal justice field. Thank you for what you do, especially in these difficult times. Remember you are honored, cherished and above all you are loved.

We are are so honored to be partnered with a great company liked Detectachem. Detectachem is helping keep our brave men and women safer by offering mobile threat detection that fits in the palm of your hand. Detecting illicit drugs, explosives and now COVID-19. This application-based technology is a MUST have for your organization. Check out their link at www.cjevolution.com

Take care of yourself first.

Imagine you are a cup. The resources you earn each day is water. The energy, time, and resources you give to others are holes in the bottom of your cup.

A cup that is losing water is a life filled with desperation, anxiety, and stress. But when your cup is gaining water you are happier, hopeful, and excited.

If you give more each day than you get, your life will get worse and worse.

Fill. Your. Cup. First. (Garrett Petticrew)

How do you fill your cup first? Start by building your foundation. Your foundation consists of the following:

  • Body and Mind – Exercise and meditate. Remember your body is the only one you will get. Take care of it. It’s your temple. Your body and mind control it all. Meditate. I love meditation. If you would have told me about it a couple years ago, I probably would have laughed at you. I don’t laugh anymore because it has worked for me and it will work for you.
  • Sleep – Believe it or not you need it. Stop thinking you are fine with 4-5 hours a sleep. You aren’t. Deep down you know it. You are just in that cycle. I know because I was once there. Your body needs to re-charge and regenerate. It accomplishes this with much needed sleep. You should be getting 7-8 hours of sleep. And, if you are working Graveyards you can still get the sleep you need. You just need to make it a priority.
  • Food – Food is the energy your body needs to operate at your peak. We all know what is good and bad for us, but many of us choose the bad. Start eating better NOW. Your body and mind will thank you.

Remember – FILL YOUR CUP FIRST

I love talking to entrepreneurs, especially those entrepreneurs who have served in the law enforcement field like my next great guest, Bryan Selzer.  He is a retired Police Sergeant and the CEO and Founder of LEFTA Systems.

LEFTA Systems, a Florida-based company specializing in software to address the needs of law enforcement and other first responders, was the result. Bryan states “I didn’t know much about computers back then, but I knew a lot about the challenges of training new recruits, use of force incidents, monitoring certifications, and addressing a political environment quick to criticize.”

Since the inception of LEFTA Systems 10 years ago, their products – and the pool of those they serve – have deepened. They now offer training and support for multiple industries, including law enforcement, first responders, security companies, and many other organizations that require employees to engage in organized, on-the-job training.

CAN LEFTA SYSTEMS HELP YOU?

Is your organization responsible for comprehensive training of new employees?
Are you required to track and report data to outside to community leaders and/or government entities?
Do you have to manage credentialing and certificates of employees?
Do you want to make impactful changes in your organization based on real data and analytics?
Are you interested in mitigating risk and identifying problems before they become problems?

PARTNER WITH US

With over 250 clients coast to coast, including Miami PD, San Francisco PD, Seattle PD, Orlando PD, Albuquerque PD and more, our products are built, used, and improved by and for professionals like us. We are proud of our 98% retention rate and hear over and over that our products are simple to use and our user support is outstanding.

 

Bryan and I talk about problems facing law enforcement as well as some solutions forward. We also talk about going for your dreams, starting that business you have been talking about and of course LEFTA Systems.

Welcome back to Microcast Monday. Remember Monday's are great days. It's day to reset. Reset in the right direction with a brand new day and a brand new week. 

As we all reflect on this difficult year, I want you to dig deep into with your happiness. Are you happy? If yes, then great. If not why? Remember that YOU control your happiness. Not anyone else. Don't give that power away. Why would you? So many people look to alternatives for happiness and they don't realize that they have all the power. Your mind is powerful. Your mind is a magnet. Your thoughts will manifest into reality. If you are unhappy, don't focus on what is bringing you unhappiness. Stop giving it energy. Rather, focus on people, places, memories etc. that MAKE YOU HAPPY. 

Also, decide to be happy rather than being right. Sometimes a friend, spouse or child might do something wrong, make a mistake etc. Don't focus on what they did wrong or the fact you were right. Just be happy. You can't control everything, but you can control your thoughts and how you react to life. 

As you go throughout the day, practice being happy. Remember you have control over every aspect of your life.

I have had the great pleasure to talk to amazing and successful people over the years and they all share a lot of similarities. One of those, is patience. They all practice it and have said that the art of patience is a critical component to their success. We live in a world of where patience is lacking. We live in a world where we want things to happen RIGHT NOW. But, that is not reality and that is not going to bring you want you want, and need, in your life. Remember that patience is a virtue. Remember showing up consistently over time is the path to success. 

Become more patient today. Stay on your success path and show up consistently. 

I hope you have a great day, week and month. Reach out to me. I would love to hear from you.
