Spectrum Healthcare…the Safest Place in Town

By | Community | No Comments
Every year, the Cottonwood Fire Department presents an award to the Cottonwood business that provides the safest environment for its staff and customers. The smiling face receiving the award this year is none other than our own Laura Robinson, the director of Quality Management for Spectrum Healthcare. It was presented to Spectrum at the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce January meeting and we couldn’t be prouder.
Thank you to the dedicated men and women of the Cottonwood Fire Department, and thank you to Laura and to every one of our Spectrum Team for making Spectrum not only a great place to work, but a safe place.

Fear is a Jerk

By | Motivation | No Comments

Fear is a jerk.

It is a double-dipped, dyed in the wool, dirty rotten, no good jerk. And what’s even worse is that it’s no ordinary jerk. Oh no… it’s a clever jerk, because it disguises itself. We don’t always recognize it, because it goes by many aliases:

Self-Doubt
Lack of Confidence
Self-Loathing
Insecurity

It adds nothing; gives nothing…all it does is take. It doesn’t better our lives in any way.
And you can’t run from it or hide from it, because it will find you. It’s persistent. It delights in hiding around every corner.  It will whisper its lies until your eyes well up with tears and your heart feels like lead.

I told you…it’s a jerk.

You can’t escape FEAR, but you can defeat. And you do that, by facing it.

You do that by grabbing that jerk by the collar and telling it:

I am good enough.
I know I will make a mistake.
Probably, lots of them
I will embarrass myself repeatedly as I attempt to better myself.
But that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop. You don’t get to decide that. 

My mistakes and embarrassments…those are MINE. I own them.
They don’t make me insecure; they make me human.
I will fall down many times
But I won’t allow a jerk like FEAR to keep me down
I refuse to be afraid.
So, go bother someone else.
