About This Product:

Veterans lose their team, lose their tools, lose their way, and lose themselves after serving...but it doesn't have to be that way...

Get ahead in life with clarity, direction, fewer unplanned challenges and more meaningful relationships with the ones you trust the most.

Based on personal experiences, tons of research, and aviation best practices, this easy to-to-learn methodology created by a veteran for struggling veterans is designed in a relatable way to help identify 1) personal opportunities for a better life, 2) how get ahead of  impending life struggles and prevent them before they happen...AND...when times are exceptionally dark, 3) learn how to interrupt and stop a sequence of events before your life struggle turns into crisis that could lead to a self-inflicted tragedy.

My name is Chris Roness.  I’m sharing some lessons I’ve learned during the last 26 years in the military as a combat helicopter pilot and veteran.  I’ve experienced a lot of adversity but I’m better for having experienced it all; tons of victories and struggles to include achieving impossible goals and coping with death of friends, family, and even a child.

I’ve experienced the fog of war and lost brothers and sisters in arms to both combat AND suicide…but I have also been blessed enough to help save some from death and help some to save themselves.  Now I've taken what I learned and created this course for you because you matter.  Sure, maybe you could probably keep doing what you're doing and figure it out on your own, but why waste that kind of time when you can avoid the pitfalls and spend that time doing the things you enjoy instead of having to constantly react to what life throws at you?

 22 veteran suicides a day is a number that we’ve now heard for years, and yet we keep hearing this number…”22”.  Why has that number not gone down?  There are several incredible programs and organizations trying to solve this problem, but in my experience, these are mostly designed to help others to recognize when someone is in need…there is nothing in place beyond some phone numbers to call for the moment when a hurting person acts on their final decision.   

It's time to take a different approach...a proactive of mentorship and growth that focuses on what each individual person really needs. 
It's time to start tracking a different number...the number of those who have found a way to overcome their challenges to live their best life.

Let's be honest.  At some point in life, everyone dies...but not everyone truly lives.  Be one of the people that makeup the new number...the hundreds of overcomers whose loved ones can celebrate our lives while we're still living it, and max performing it!

Due to a series of significant events in my life and the lives of those I care about, I was driven to analyze veteran suicide through the lenses I was trained to use in the military.   Reams of studies and reports are consistent in that the most common “go to” methods to act on in that decisive moment are predominately quick acting and leave little to no time for others to respond to during the exact moments someone who’s hurting chooses to act on that final decision. 

This fact is where I had my “aha moment”; there is not really one single “thing” to empower that struggling vet or person to make a predetermined positive decision during their darkest, emotionally charged, moments.  Only they can stop the action, but they do not know how, nor do they want to at that moment.  This is the gap…the “why we fail”.  That person needs to be able to “interrupt” their own emotional thoughts…a way to stop the clock without breaking the clock…but there isn’t one.   Plus, those challenges, whatever they may be, didn't start at that moment...they started weeks or months, maybe even years prior to that moment.   Now is your chance to get ahead of it!

Those left in the wake of these losses struggle with trying to make sense of it all, mourning for the future....and that's the rub.  There should have and could have been a future for every one of those service-members and veterans who just couldn't find the way to cope and chose not to cope any longer.

To bridge this gap, I developed a self-guided a system of thinking to help anyone privately navigate through their lifestyle to find, fix, or prepare opportunities for growth and mitigate potential struggles BEFORE they happen, and providing a survival construct for that unexpected crisis that cannot be avoided.   My FREE self-guided workshop designed for our service-members and veterans, which can apply to anyone, encompasses three main themes:
 1) The five lifeguards you need in your life and how to find them - Identify five trusted agents and tether yourself to them and tether them to each other. (e.g. good friends, mentors, role models, family, etc.).
2) The cone of life - A simple aviation themed methodology on how to “get awesome and stay awesome” while preparing for a life crisis that seems unmanageable BEFORE it happens while building a life full of purpose. -  Reduce opportunities for crisis to occur in life through five simple steps - plan, prep, brief, step, action, debrief.
3) M.A.T.R; - A simple memory tool based on an individualized action plan to save your own life when (not if) that dark moment comes for you during an overwhelming crisis.  Build preplanned emergency actions to select from for when that crisis occurs and commit them to memory along with this acronym M.A.T.R; Maintain Control, Analyze the situation, Take Immediate action, Refer to your plan.
Through this short intro course, you will gain basic tools you've never had before, and won't find anywhere else designed to specifically get you out of the darkest moment when you are in it.

 I want to commend you for the free intro and the very well structured explanation of your methodology. I'm an Afghanistan vet , from an elite team, so we came back so exceptionally messed up...The entire 3rd ID , for that matter that even Obama gave us 2 years of mourning, fortunately I can look back at those 2 suicidal moments and ask who was that? and yet when money becomes available I will purchase your course, not just that I will recommended to others in my Facebook page, great job, thank you for the effort and God bless you and family
