Rosa reminds us how adversity happens to everyone, it's a fact of life.  We get to decide how to respond to adversity and how it can make us better and remind us about how our decisions affect others.  Even when leadership fails us, or when others fail to see how their role has an impact on others, you can make a difference by choosing not to let it distort your values or who you are in those moments.  This is part two of the conversation about day zero.

Episode 8: How have you prepared for Day Zero?
Rosa draws a parallel between Day Zero in the police academy and the day zero we all face in real life.  Day Zero is the day before Day One at your dream job.  It is the gut check that happens when you are under pressure and you're not sure how badly you really want it.  It is where you get to work through insecurities and decide that you will not quit.  We all have a day zero and it is a day we can prepare for so that, when it happens, we don't just survive it, we leave a mark that removes any doubt that you belong there.  Day Zero cannot take you out, only you can disqualify yourself.

Episode 2: Are you giving away your power?
