You Mean My Attitude Stinks?
If you have issues with your attitude, here's the deal, according to writer Wayne Nance, remolding your thoughts will take time. "If it takes 40 years to mess my life up, 30 days doesn’t do it," says author of, The 3-Minute Difference. A quick fix? "If that’s what you want, don’t buy my book, because quick fixes have failed."

What do you desire people to get out of this book?
In the first chapter of my new book The 3-Minute Difference I talk about my shortcomings. You know I was a Christian and wasn’t walking the walk either. I was a Christian author who had four credit cards maxed out and I was a financial adviser. So I think you have to go through the journey.
Do you think that this transparency is going help Christians say, “Alight I think I can trust this guy and what he’s saying to me?”
I hope so. But if they think it’s a sales pitch, they still won’t do it [take advice]. I moved pass trying to make everybody happy. I don’t want to make every reader happy or everybody on the Internet like me. I just want to tell them the truth. If you need someone to be politically correct, you need to get another book, because my book talks about core attitudes of people. In 3-Minutes, we spent 40 years researching this. After going around America and speaking to groups, counseling on marriages, speaking to kids on probation, and dealing with dysfunctional adults that have their credit cards maxed out and who are 100 pounds overweight--I found that they need to be told the truth that their attitude is in their way. My friend Zig Ziglar says “You’re stinking thinking.” Way to go Zig. That is the simplest way to put it. The problem in America is that we have too many false beliefs. We learn those false beliefs out of our attitude. That’s why taking the 3-Minute Survey is such a big deal.
So this is not a quick fix.
If that’s what you want, don’t buy my book, because quick fixes have failed.
