To Snooze or Not to Snooze – The Power to Choose

The 3-Minute Difference

How many choices have you made today, or just in the first hour of waking up?  The first choice was to press the “snooze” button on the alarm clock (should be called an opportunity clock).

Forgetting about the additional presses of the snooze button, consider what your next choice was…should I call in sick or go ahead and get up?  Next will probably be similar to most people and that is do I make fresh coffee now or just drink the leftover coffee from yesterday morning, after a quick nuke in the microwave?

I think you are getting the message that we all make an enormous amount of choices daily.  The most important one is the choice to make this a great day of opportunities or just to exist and go through the motions of another day of life.

I want you to stop reading for a moment and just do a little introspection (I know.. another big word).  Examine your yesterday and try and count the missed opportunities to make a positive impact on another person’s life that you came in contact with.  Now, stop reading and think about it for a minute…………

What could you have done differently to share some good news with someone?  Could it have been a small compliment or hey, could it have been an action such as not racing to the closest parking spot at the local department store?  Let someone else have that spot, you just might benefit from the exercise.

Make it a priority daily to improve someone’s life in just a small way – a smile always helps.  More importantly, you could share the 3 Minute Survey with a friend and start to counsel with him/her to make that person’s existence have more value.  Who knows, you may just be the answer that is needed at that time, but you won’t know if you don’t CHOOSE to take action.

Remember that you have the power to choose… so choose wisely.

Preventing Military Suicides- the Inside Scoop

A 3-Minute Survey May Help Leaders Predict and Prevent Suicides

alter

The 3-minute Difference is a fantastic book that hits the ‘attitude’ nail on the head and is perfect for people who want more success in their personal,family, business, and spiritual lives.

 – Tom Ziglar, President & CEO Ziglar

3 minute difference photoIn a recent interview, Mike Knowlton talked about this unique tool: “In the past six months, I’ve dealt with families and friends of five young men who have died by suicide or the result of substance abuse. I believe these deaths were preventable, if we could have gotten out in front of their life problems.”

 Unfortunately, in the military, young leaders can’t focus on their soldiers’ life issues because they don’t have time to get to know the soldiers well enough. Army leaders, for instance, usually have only 90 days to get to know each soldier in their units somewhat. “According to Army statistics, there have been 241 suicides in the Army this year. Why? Some leaders believe it is because there’s no bridge over the gap between the agencies, the leadership and the soldiers to help them know the soldiers and their critical needs. It is the missing link.”

Rob Cook, who has used RLM’s 3-Minute Survey for more than ten years in counseling military people, said, “Contrary to common belief, the greatest battles for military people are not on the landscapes of war, but are within the soldiers and their families. The battles are on the soil of garrison life, the plateaus of the barracks and neighborhoods and where veterans walk. The majority of poor choices, including suicide, are related to a soldier’s attitudes, beliefs and balance between head and heart as he/she navigates through life. Implementing a preventive system of training to help soldiers deal with the stresses of finances, health and broken relationships can help prevent their making poor decisions to opt for ‘drugs of choice,’ such as shopping, food, work, substance abuse, speed, violence and suicide.”

But with the 3-Minute Survey, RLM believes that leaders can get to know a man’s attitudes and stress factors in about 15 minutes. It has worked successfully in non-military settings, and so far it appears to be working in the Army, from the highest-ranked enlisted man to privates, with high levels of accuracy. RLM believes the survey can bring intense clarity to the issues faced by military leaders.

 According to Knowlton, “This generation has no understanding of fiscal responsibility. Every story is dramatic. But now couples trust me because of what the 3-Minute Survey reveals—they think I knowthem. The truth is, they all look good, but behind the Facebook persona, their lives are often disasters. What I originally thought was a ‘stupid little survey’ has altered my thinking completely and made me so much more aware of what’s behind the façade of people’s lives.”

After using the 3-Minute Survey extensively, Knowlton said, “It cuts out 90 percent of the garbage and gets past the avatar’s image to the heart of the issue. It’s an amazing tool. The more effort I put into it, the more impressed and excited I am about the survey and the RLM program.”

The “Missing Link” in Preventing Military Suicides Identified

A 3-Minute Survey May Help Leaders Predict and Prevent Suicides

coffeeEach day I begin with a tradition that I call my “Morning Mocha Management.” In the time that it takes me to drink a tall cup o’ joe, I go through my RLM (Real Life Management) skills, take a deep breath, and the day starts off on a lighter foot. This morning, I read how those serving in the armed forces start off the same-but many times their day beings before the rooster crows. Here’s  a glimpse into what I learned.

In the military, leadership is everything. Without strong leaders, the military is weak and ineffective. But leadership may now be strengthened in the military as a tool is being tested that many consider the “missing link” in leaders being equipped to predict problems and help young soldiers deal with life issues that can lead to suicide, such as health, money and relationships.

Real Life Management (RLM) is under contract with the U.S. Army at Ft. Hood, Texas, as the Army begins testing the RLM “3-Minute Survey” in various areas to see how it may help them improve day-to-day leadership skills. RLM hopes that, as progress is made and positive results are seen in the Army, other branches of the military may also consider testing the RLM system.

Wayne E. Nance, CEO and founder of RLM, along with other renowned authors and researchers, has been studying for more than twenty-five years in the areas of finances, relationships and health. The result is RLM’s dynamic, life-altering system which enables people to understand the attitudes and core beliefs that affect their daily decisions. The cornerstone of this successful system is the 3-Minute Survey. Nance and RLM believe that these issues are actually interrelated, and they seek to provide keen insight into individuals’ attitudes, communication styles and decision-making methods.

What Does Attitude Have to Do With Anything?

Years ago, Wayne E. Nance’s life was out of control. An incessant smoker, he weighed 315 pounds. His marriage was disintegrating and his finances were bottoming out. He finally realized that obesity, debt, and relationship meltdown were surface problems resulting from his core attitudes and beliefs. He found a way to bring his life back into balance.

Today, Wayne is The Real Life Attitude Guy. His true success story includes losing more than 100 pounds, paying off more than $40,000 of credit card debt, and staying happily married for more than 35 years.
