Why We Need To Stop Suicide Rates w/ Charles P. Smith EP 37

Why We Need To Stop Suicide Rates w/ Charles P. Smith EP 37

June 18, 2021

According to the 2020 National Veterans Suicide Prevention Annual report, suicide rates continue to increase in the U.S. adult population. There is also a growing correlation between post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide risk.

In this episode of the Passion Struck Podcast, John R. Miles interviews Charles P. Smith on the growing suicide rate among veterans, active-duty military members, and the general population. Charles served 10 years as a Marine Corps officer. Through his TedX, viewed by over 2 million, and this podcast, he is trying to bring a voice to the voiceless.

We discuss how mental illness is the same if not more important as physical health, yet it is viewed completely differently. If someone's mental health isn't there, we need to talk about it. This is a subject that we need to focus on in this growing dilemma that seems to be ignored by the highest levels of the military.

Charles provides shocking information that since September 11th, there have been over 115,000 veterans who have taken their lives through suicide. This number was fact check by the TedX team. The reality is that if you include active duty members, it is over 138,000 - a 20:1 ratio of suicides in the military community compared to those who lost their lives in combat.  

We also discuss these statistics on why we need to focus more on suicide rates at the highest levels of the military and government. And the growing link between post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide rates. 

Statistics on suicide rates

It is a staggering statistic that 46,510 American adults died by suicide in 2018, compared with 31,610 in 2005. The average rose from 86.6 per day in 2005 to 124.4 in 2017 and 127.4 in 2018. That is a 47.1% increase, and the rate of suicides in veterans is 1.5x that of the general population. 

Across the nation, the number of suicide deaths has been rising since the turn of the millennium.  Overall, from 2005 to 2018, the age- and sex-adjusted suicide rates among Veterans were higher and rose faster than those among non-Veteran U.S. adults.

Post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide rates

The National Center for PTSD 2017 report found an association between post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide. And, the association between PTSD and suicide is particularly relevant to military members and Veterans. Among US Army service members from 2001–2009, those who died by suicide were almost 13x more likely to have received a diagnosis of PTSD than all Army service members in the same time period.

One study examined all suicide deaths from 1994–2006 using the Danish national healthcare and social registries and found that persons with PTSD had 5.3x the death rate from suicide than persons without PTSD.

A subsequent study examined death from suicide among all persons diagnosed with PTSD in Denmark from 1995–2011 and found that after adjustment for demographics and pre-existing comorbid psychiatric diagnoses, persons with PTSD had 13x the rate of suicide than persons without PTSD.

Quotes From Charles P. Smith

"These people who take that step to take their life, they are in pain we can't understand."

"When they take their life, they think that they are becoming less of a burden on others when the reality is it actually hurts the people that they love."

"This is a way to give a voice to the now voiceless."

"And when you look at the statistics, in particular, in the veteran community, the suicide rate is one and a half times that in the general population."

Quotes From John R. Miles

“Everyone is waiting for you to win, even those who don’t know you, but it all starts with you wanting yourself to win.”

"If you are not fulfilled in what you are doing, there is no way that you are living to your full capability."

"When you think about that story, and where you are in your life, and you're performing it day in and day out. Are you happy about where you are? Do you feel fulfilled? Are you living at your full capability? Are you living the life that you want to live?"

"But I can tell you; I'm doing this today because I made a choice in my own life that I wasn't going to let the disabilities that impact me define who I am and the path I want to take in my own life."

It might sound harsh, but you do not have to hold onto a friendship that you have outgrown or has become a toxic relationship. Humans are social by nature and we need friendship and support as we venture through life.

"Just because your relationship or friendship was one time successful, It does not mean that you have to stay in that relationship forever."

"Humans by nature are social. And we want people in our lives, we want friendships, and we need that support as we venture through our own individual lives."

"I have found it can actually be extremely beneficial to have friends in different categories. Because that way you know who to go to in different situations."

Primarily, a joint project we worked on was the first in the company's history of applying the agile methodology to our software development projects. We discuss the keys that made this project such a success and why agile software development takes involvement not only from the software team but, even more importantly, the business team it is supporting.

Ron talks about how this initiative saved the company over $400 Million and the keys that made the project such a success.

We explore the importance of serving others versus serving ourselves and why becoming a servant leader is so important as we approach this all-digital future that we're entering into.

Ron shares words of advice on how you be a servant leader both in your career and personal life and so much more.

  • Learn About the Veterans Empowerment Organization He Serves 

Quotes From Ron Lutz

"And your notion, that agile solution made perfect sense to me at the time, in terms of our dynamic need relative to the business, we were trying to stand up, it worked flawlessly."

"For every week that we could take out of the build cycle, that was half a million dollars of incremental sales per week."

"I turned around one day, and I said, Wait a minute, am I truly fulfilled? Am I actually giving all the value back to Lowe's that I feel like Lowe's deserves? Frankly, am I staying true to who I am?" "We need to know ourselves very well."

"Every voice along with the continuum matters. Everyone's activity is a value add an activity; everyone should have the ability to be able to say if we did this, it would have this cause and effect."

Stop Applying a Governor to Your Life w/ John R. Miles EP 31

So many today are living short of their potential. I believe it is because of restrictions we place on ourselves, and that is why you need to stop applying a governor to your life.

Are you living to your true capability, your purpose in life, your future potential? According to a number of recent studies from Gallup, Gartner, and Bill and Melinda Gates - The majority of us are not. I believe that is because of our self-governor. And you know what that governor is?

It is our MINDS!!!

And when it starts facing fear or adversity, it shuts down.

You can think of our governor as our survival mechanism is our safety blanket as that crutch. When things start to get very painful, your mind ends up taking control and then tells you and your body that you need to be doing something else, anything other than putting yourself into that uncomfortable place.

In this episode, you will learn why as few as 15% of all people globally live their lives to their full abilities. 

You will learn the three ways to recognize your self-governors and then how to stop applying a governor to your capabilities and unlocking a passion-driven life.  

Enjoy!

What You Will Learn In This Episode

  • Studies That Illustrate We Are Not Living Our Capability
  • What is a Governor and How is it Used
  • How We Apply a Governor to Our Life
  • John's Own Story of Applying a Governor
  • What is Keeping You From Living the Life You want
  • The Three Governors We Apply to Our life
  • Making the Choice to Accept Yourself
  • How to Get Out of Your Own Way

Quotes from John R. Miles

"It (2019 Gallup Survey) found that only 15% of all those employees, 1 billion of them are actually engaged at work. You look at that another way. That means that an astronomical 85% of the planet's full-time workers are dissatisfied with their jobs."

 

"We are living our capability, our purpose in life, our future potential with a governor that we apply to ourselves. And you know what that Governor is? It is our MINDS. And when it starts facing fear or adversity, it shuts down."

 

"When you can start taking control of your mind, you can start removing the governor from your life."

 

"I used to think that I would really motivate myself and really live up to my full potential by telling myself day in and day out that I really wasn't."

 

"If you want to live your life to its fullest capability truly and to start to accomplish what you're set out to do, it might be time to take that brutally honest look at your current reality."

 

"Your mind knows exactly who you are; it knows your innermost fears, it knows what you're most insecure about. And it does an amazing job of taking you away from any of those things, to a place of safety."

 

"I'm being the best that I can be right here. Right now. I taking off that Governor and allowing myself to put away all the lies and accept myself for who I am."

In the early 1900s, the Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, or Elon Musk of that time was a gentleman named Charles M Schwab. And if you're not familiar with him, he was an American steel magnate as the CEO of Bethlehem Steel.

Charles Schwab was looking for ways to improve the efficiency and productivity of the company and turned to his friend Oil Tycoon John D. Rockefeller, who suggested to Schwab that he should consult with Ivy Lee, a prominent Public Relations expert at the time. And, he was lucky he did. Following Lee's involvement, Bethlehem Steel became the largest shipbuilder globally and the second-largest steel manufacturer. 

Later in life, Schwab credited the Ivy Lee Method for his Bethlehem's success, which resulted in Schwab amassing a $200 Million fortune, equivalent in purchasing power to about $6.35 billion today.

Learn how you can apply these same secrets to increase your own productivity and time management.

Enjoy!!

Quotes From John R. Miles

"The Ivy Lee method is such an easy way to monetize your daily tasks and goals that you can easily incorporate to help you focus on your long-term objectives."

"I find the Ivy League method is one of the most important things I use, and it's something that I teach each of my coaching clients because it's the perfect system to get you moving daily."

"If you take just one thing away from this critical message, it should be this do the most important thing first every day."

"And you may be asking yourself, why does this work? It sounds so simple. And that's precisely what it is. It is simple in a word. It's minimalism."

"The truth is that simplicity works. It works in business, and it works in life. "

Quotes From VADM William "Ted" Carter, President of the University of Nebraska System

"Plebe summer was transformative for me, mainly because it was that time when you realize you can't really do anything on your own. It's all being part of a team. But also, you had to deliver yourself."

"It (Winter Classic) was a spectacle. It was no kidding a Super Bowl-level event. The capitals ended up winning the game. The gold medal curlers pushed the puck out to center ice on a stone; it landed right in the middle of center ice, and then I got to take the puck off the stone and drop the puck."

"I looked at the honor concept as it was written when I took over as superintendent, and I realized that it was a need of something, maybe to be more modernized so it would resonate with the Midshipman of today."

"We are such a centerpiece of the entire state of Nebraska. I mean, I talked about, you know, being in the public eye when I was a superintendent, the Naval Academy, this is to that level, and maybe even a little bit more. I mean, Nebraska is an agricultural state. 90% of the entire landmass is farmland or ranches. So that is the number one economic driver of the entire state, but a close second is the University."

"We very well could get to a point where we're launching airplanes off of an aircraft carrier, somewhere in the Indian Ocean, or the South Pacific and tankers, and many of the missions that had historically had pilots and naval flight officers in it may not be there."

"You got to be ready for your moment. And don't shy from it; take it."

"One of the things I've learned is that no matter who you come in contact with, you got to treat everybody fairly with dignity and respect and never underestimate anybody."
