Overcome Career Stress with Goals & Vision

With a limited amount of officers, Connersville Police is facing similar scenarios as many others throughout the united states.  A lack of morals, conscience and respect is making it more and more difficult and dangerous for these guys to keep us safe.  But like many officers around the country Dax has a vision.

Pictured above: Brian Benedict with Connersville In Police Department Officer Dax Gunder.

If it was’t for Police and Fire Insurance I’m not sure I would’ve ever met Dax and his family.   I can remember getting to know him and the other officers on second and third shifts.  With a little more time under his belt Dax he is now protecting the citizens of Connersville on first shift.

He’s currently getting his MBA and is focused on the future.  With all the challenges they’re faced with it’s important to remember that the greatest asset is you.  It’s your mind.  Staying focused.  Creating a future goal and going for it.

Hope is a powerful tool to forward progress and attitude.  If you feel stuck, if you feel down and depressed with your current situation you can change it by establishing a goal.

After establishing your goal don’t forget to write it down.  If its only in your mind you’re more likely to stop doing what it takes to get there.

Thanks to Dax and all of the other officers within the Connersville Police Department.   I’ve made great friends and lasting relationships.  Be safe brothers.  Call me if you need me.

Your friend
