Become Realistic — Eliminate Wishful!

Improve TQ Set Goals Factor 4A...

"I make all my dreams real by first identifying and then focusing on specific, tangible targets for what I want."

You'll never make a dream real until you have something specific to aim at. There is no way you can plan for -- to say nothing of work toward -- a "better life." You can, however, stipulate a list of conditions that would define a better life. Each of those items can then be made into a precise target you can aim for, and immediately begin to work towards. So, dream your dreams, then identify specific examples in the real world that best represent the desired qualities of your dream. Once you do this, you'll be well on your way to creating that "better life" you desire.

Remember, SET GOALS is the fourth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because you can't make the leap from here to your vision, all in one jump.

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

TQ Factor 4A "Thin Line"...

Realistic vs. Wishful is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 4A 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
 
Realistic
Precise
Proactive
Self-Directed
Rational
    Wishful
Nebulous
Passive
Vague
Ambiguous
 

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 Realistic... and a little LESS Wishful?

TQ Factor 4A CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you have the power to be both a dreamer and a doer. You have the faith that you can make things happen if you want them badly enough. This gives you the confidence to go beyond wishful thinking, and identify exactly what you want in real-world terms. With a specific target in sight, you are then able to map a course of action to the desired destination. Once a goal is identified, you find it easy to commit to what it takes -- because time and effort are spent on reaching tangible targets -- rather than idly fantasizing about "someday" dreams.

TQ Factor 4A COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are only a dreamer. Perhaps you can't get more specific about your dreams because you don't believe they are attainable. It's safer to think of them in gross generalizations with no more than a "someday" as a deadline date. Unfortunately, with no specific long-term goals fixed in "space and time," your career, relationships and other major interests lack clear direction. Regrettably, goals that lack believability, details or dates remain wisps of smoke -- with nothing firm to grasp.

TQ Factor 4A BENEFIT: You have more power...

You have "do-able" dreams that have an excellent chance of succeeding. You accumulate performance positives like "Realistic, Precise and Proactive" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 4A: Less Power...

Your dreams don't have a chance of becoming real. Negatives like "Wishful, Nebulous and Passive" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Worth 1000 Times the price paid..."

Been there... done that... and I'm not easily impressed. I've purchased thousands of dollars of books, seminars, video tapes, and an assortment of training aids that would fill a garage. Never have I been so impressed before. Simple, straight-forward and very structured. This is the LAST program I will ever need to take! I wish it would have been my FIRST...
