This week we had the opportunity to share Situational Awareness and Defensive Mindset with the Bismarck Cancer Center. This group was fired up, maybe because every day they live a “saving lives” mission, or maybe because they teach their patients the survival mindset to beat cancer. Cancer, like violence, can happen to good people at any age, and at any time.
We loved their enthusiasm! The message of protecting the lives of themselves and their loved ones resonated with this group. Why? They see others fighting for their lives every day and they know just how precious life is. We all have one thing in common and it’s that we get only one life to live. There are no do overs.
A top regret of a dying person is this, “I wish I had the courage to live the life I wanted.” What do you need the courage to do? Do you need to start writing the book you have always wanted to or start that business of your dreams?
We don’t know how long we have on Earth, but we better make the most of it while we are here. Every one of us is living our dream and that’s why it is so important that we don’t let anyone turn it into a nightmare because even if we survive, the emotional trauma and stress that will follow will haunt us forever.
It’s a great feeling to empower such a courageous group of people that are true heroes. We need more people like them in the world and they share the Pretty Loaded mission: they are trying to make this world a better place and so are we.
Thank you Bismarck Cancer Center for having such integrity and caring so deeply for your employees well being!
If you want some inspiration for having the courage to take charge of your personal safety then remember Eleanor Roosevelt’s quote: “Do what you find is right in your heart because you will be criticized anyway. Damned if you do and damned if you don’t.”
Courage is not without fear, but it is facing it head on and going for it. It’s your life and your dream! Don’t let anyone take that away from you. If you want to become more empowered, sign up for our next Situational Awareness class today.
