Become Optimistic — Eliminate Pessimistic!

Improve TQ Attitude Factor 3E...

"I look for the best in every situation, and the opportunity in every problem."

There are facts, and then there's your interpretation of these facts. The actions you take -- and the results you produce -- are completely dependent on how you see the facts. You can focus on the best in every situation or you can focus on the worst. There's a problem in every opportunity and an opportunity in every problem. Interpret the facts negatively and you're left with little power and fewer opportunities. Change your point of view and you're empowered to create the best results possible -- no matter the circumstance.

Remember, ATTITUDE is the third color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because, even though you may have a passion for what's most important, until you also believe that you can make a real difference in your life, and those around you, nothing's going to happen.

You CAN achieve your greatest dreams and aspirations. Simply improve your TQ Attitude Color.

"If you view all the things that happen to you, both good and bad, as opportunities, then you operate out of a higher level of consciousness." ~ Les Brown

TQ Factor 3E "Thin Line"...

Optimistic vs. Pessimistic is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 3E more often, and the following POSITIVE characteristics will automatically begin to accumulate and flow into to your performance—moving you TOWARDS the results you want and the success you desire.

Positives     Negatives
 
Optimistic
Undaunted
Hopeful
Courageous
Upbeat
    Pessimistic
Critical
Depressed
Cynical
Gloomy
 

Choose to take this action infrequently, or not at all, and the opposing NEGATIVE traits will dominate your performance and sabotaging your success... moving you AWAY from achieving your goals and aspirations.

Think about it. How much more successful would you be if you were a little MORE Optimistic... and a little LESS Pessimistic?

TQ Factor 3E CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests that even in the middle of everything going wrong, and nothing going right, your reaction is to still look for the best you can salvage from the situation. You understand that not everything is going to work out exactly as you would like. When you're not happy with a situation, you rise above the circumstances and find a way to improve it. You can take numerous rejections without giving up. When you do not first succeed, you see it as a learning opportunity, and go out and do better next time.

TQ Factor 3E COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who has few skills for getting through the tough times. You don't look for the silver linings during hard times. Instead, you tend to see what's wrong rather than what's right. Your first reaction is to judge people and situations from a negative or critical perspective. It takes you a long time to get over setbacks and rejections. When taken to the extreme, you see life as one big problem that you have to suffer through. When you do not first succeed, you usually just give up.

TQ Factor 3E BENEFIT: You have more power...

A mistake or a setback is a chance to do better the next time. You thrive on chaos. You accumulate performance positives like "Optimistic, Undaunted and Hopeful" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 3E: Less Power...

Your only response to mistakes and setbacks is to try to suffer through them. Negatives like "Pessimistic, Critical and Depressed" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Yesterdays don't matter..."

You are 100% correct. What was good enough to get me by last year doesn't have a snow-balls chance this year. I have to do things differently -- just to keep pace. The Power of TQ truly opened my eyes to my current limitations and my ultimate potential. I am ever so grateful.
