Drinking from a Fire Hose:

5 Essential Tools to Not Get Soaked

Learning the hard way is never easy. 

Imagine, your gut is telling you to stand still and don’t move. Your heart is pounding so loud you can’t hear the Fire Captain screaming at you. Sweat is dripping down your back and your legs are shaking from the heavy bunker gear you are wearing. Your mind is telling to give up, just stop and go home. It’s not worth it.

But what if it is worth it? What if people are depending on you? What do you do?

You answer the call! You don’t give in! You don’t go home!

And, you Never, Ever Give up.
