My name is Lee Vernon. I have spent over 24 years as a full time Firefighter/EMT as well as small business owner. Over those years, I have been blessed with a lot of success and some catastrophic failures related to business. After starting from ground zero again in my late 30’s, I sat down to see where and what contributed to my business success and failures. After a lot of personal reflection, changes were made to not repeat the mistakes made. In doing so, I applied multiple changes to my business and personal habits that simply revolve around the Tactical Strong Program.
It was interesting in that when I started following the Tactical Strong Program, I actually found that with my profession as a Firefighter/EMT I was already doing a large portion of the program without even knowing it. As a Firefighter, I do not have the privilege to have a bad day like most professions. A bad day in my profession means my partners or myself get hurt or potentially do not get to go home. That is not an option. In our profession, we build our reputation based around positive core values, close working relationships with crew members, and constantly improving our skill sets. Determination and adaptable execution is what is required to do the job to our best ability in order to save lives and property. These are some of the core values that the Tactical Strong Program sets as its foundation.
Whether it’s working my personal small business or working a chaotic scene of death and destruction, many of the same TSP applications are implemented, they are just in different perspectives and contexts. Things like making a plan, executable actions that are geared toward positive results, keeping a positive mindset, and always having a never quit attitude are what is needed in order to succeed in accomplishing your end result goals of success.
The TSP is not just for business, but can be applied to improving your overall well-being as an individual, father, mother, brother, sister, you name it. It is about improving one’s quality of life and increasing the odds of success at whatever we do. I know that since I have applied the TSP aspects, I have had a lot more positive outcomes and success than I have prior to implementing TSP. So if you want to increase your overall well-being and improve the rate of success at whatever you do, I highly recommend that you take the short time to read and then actually APPLY the steps written out in the Tactical Strong Program. It truly is a recipe for success.
