Who Are Big Dog and Ms Linda
Your probably wondering just who they and that’s a really
easy one to answer as we are among the common people
who are simply a retired firefighter and a dispatcher.
Linda used to send me into some various dangerous life
and death situations, and not many wives are willing do
that on a daily basis. Linda knew…at that particular
given moment in time…I was the best person to help
the people in danger.
Something we discovered after retirement as we worked
different jobs…we never really felt, as we are sure a lot
of people feel, we’re doing what we were meant to do…
but for whatever reason we really couldn’t figure out why.
We often wondered if we were just what some people call
“Adrenaline Junkies” or what. Looking deeper into the
reasons causing emergency personal to do the things we
do…we actually discovered something that was quite
surprising to us…we discovered was what motivates many
of them is an emotion that most would find a bit odd…its
“Anger”. Yeah we understand that may sound a bit strange
but it’s true and we’ll explain why.
When you’re in the middle of a given situation, and it
doesn’t matter if you’re a Police Officer, a Firefighter,
or an Emergency Medial person, at that very moment
your emotions move into anger. It’s not angry at any
person, but instead angry at the situation. Your sense
of anger is motivation and a sensation that it’s similar
to feelings of your not letting this person get away, or
you not allowing this fire to beat you, or this person
will not die on you, and in past experiences…in everyone
of these cases, it’s this emotion that drives you to the
decision of “failure is not an option”…period.
Discovering this for us was huge as we began to read
more books on success we discovered this was a
common thread among successful people. If you really
think about it how many times can you remember
when you took on a specific task, of going somewhere,
doing something, or just making a decision about
something where your final thoughts were anger and
you came to the decision of “failure is not an option”,
and what happened…remember how you accomplished
whatever it was you wanted? It’s the same thing…you
got angry…but not at any person but at the task at hand…
come on you have to remember some time…
- What if you were given this source of energy, willpower, and determination…would you want it?
- What if you knew it would take work…not hard work…but steady work…would you do it?
- What if you were able to tap into it on a regular basis…would that help you?
- What if you could teach others…would you promise to do it?
The only way you’re going to be able to tap into this
somewhat hidden emotional trigger is to find something…
a cause if you will…that’s much bigger than you…we
did and you can to.
If you would like to read about…our trigger if you will…
to discover if it hits home with you enough to understand,
follow, learn, and teach these things we encourage you
to slip over and read about Our Obligation to help our
fellow brothers and sisters….
Thank you for reading about us and hope we gave you
something you didn’t already know…
Respectfully and sincerely,
Big Dog and Ms Linda
