Abstract:

"Just three seconds. The time it takes to make a decision. Thatþs all that lies between settling for 'Whatever' or insisting on 'Whatever it takes.' 3 Seconds shows how to unleash the inner resources that can move you to a whole new level of success. It comes down to six predictable impulses that most of us automatically accept without a second thought. You can replace them with new impulses that lead toward impact and significance. For instance, it takes Three Seconds to Disown Your Helplessness: The First Impulse: 'Thereþs nothing I can do about it.' The Second Impulse: 'I canþt do everything, but I can do something.' Quit Stewing and Start Doing: The First Impulse: 'Someday Iþm going to do that.' The Second Impulse: 'Iþm diving in starting today.' Fuel Your Passion: The First Impulse: 'Iþll do what happens to come my way.' The Second Impulse: 'Iþll do what Iþm designed to do.'Inhale exhale ... the difference of your lifetime can begin in the space of a single breath. The decision is yours. Start today ..."--Jacket.
