Today’s drivers are more distracted and rushed than at any other time in history. We are trying to get more packed into our days than we realistically have time for, which leads our drivers to be distracted and rushed. This results in motor vehicle incidents (MVI) which cause unnecessary delays, downed time of personnel/equipment and increased insurance costs. Our driver's bad habits and poor driving choices add unnecessary costs to our businesses' operations and sometimes result in near-fatal or fatal injuries. We all want to get our drivers home safe, and we all want to reduce our operating costs, so our businesses and companies are more profitable.
Book a discovery call with me to see how I can help your drivers increase their safe driving behaviours and reduce the risks of being involved in a MVI. I am a Road Safety Advocate/Speaker who has spoken on the importance of Road Safety for two decades. I am also the sole survivor of a fatal car crash where I sustained life-threatening burns to 75% of my body. I'm passionate about helping drivers get home safely and would love the oppurunity to work with your drivers.

Sometimes I get in my head when I don't know how to execute a task or project. I'm often frozen in inaction. I'm afraid to take action or make the wrong choice. Frozen. Stuck. Afraid.
Are you the type of person that is afraid of taking action on something you are not sure how to execute? Are you worried if your efforts will work out? Are you frozen and afraid to take action? Are you concerned about how you will look if your actions and choices are the wrong ones?
I have accomplished a lot in my life and will continue to achieve a lot because I say so. However, often I get stuck, frozen, and afraid to take action or make a choice. I don't want to look stupid. I never learned that mistakes are part of the learning journey; in my eyes, they were terrible.
This is an old wound that likes to resurface its head when I am working on something that stretches my abilities, and these thoughts are no longer needed. It stems from a young John that didn't always have the correct answer in class or didn't get things right away. I thought, felt and knew I was stupid and would collect evidence that it was true, "John is dumb!" I know it's not true, but I didn't realise that growing up. I thought I was stupid, and I would do or say things that proved this judgement of myself. I also notice that I have this feeling like I don't want to put all this effort into this task or project and have it be all wrong. Making mistakes was terrible and wrong in my eyes, and it never occurred as a learning opportunity.
What I know now is that it's ok to be concerned for the outcome of the task or project I am working on, but don't let it stop me from doing my important work, work that needs to be done and work that is saving-peoples lives. I know that making mistakes is just part of the learning process, and I'm just ruling out what doesn't work.
When I am responsible for putting aside those negative thoughts, it's easier to take the actions or make the choices I need to make to move my project forward. With a responsibility mindset, I can achieve whatever I set my mind to and keep taking actions that are consistent with the future happening.
So next time you have that same thought or feeling that freezes you in inaction, thank it for showing up and put it aside as you know you can do the task or project. There is no need to engage with that internal voice from a younger scared version of you. Remember this simple rule; you alone are responsible for your future. So take action and make choices that are consistent with that future happening. Be excited about the future you create because you can make it happen.
