What is the REAL reason one person succeeds where another with the same talent fails?

"Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones." ~ Benjamin Franklin

The Thin Line Between Success and Failure...

Study Ben Franklin's above quote carefully. It is prophetic.

Successful, happy and well-adjusted people have a whole lot of "good habits" and very few "bad habits" driving their performance — which means they have a tremendous net worth to themselves and society at large.

No question, there is a tremendous difference between successful people and those who struggle just to live an ordinary life. While the reason may seem obvious, the reality goes deeper.

Over the last 20 years, we have learned that there is in fact a root-cause for this.

Simply put, people who succeed, EXPECT to succeed... where people who fail, don't really expect to succeed in the first place.

You can see it in their faces... in their choices... in their resilience and resolve. One person develops tremendous tenacity, optimism and becomes focused on big dreams and goals. The other becomes hardened to their reality, sees life as an endurance test and becomes focused on weekly survival.

So, what's the stem-reason... the ACTUAL force that causes one person — with the same gifts and talent — to rapidly rise to the TOP where the other seems to consistently find their way to the BOTTOM of the scale?

The underlying cause is that successful people have far more POSITIVES driving their performance at every point in time. People who struggle have learned to live with a tremendous number of NEGATIVES which hold them back from the results they want and the success they so rightly deserve.

Look at the TQ Thin Line Chart below. Which personal characteristics do you believe move someone up towards success? For how many can you say, "YES, this is me" on a consistent basis?

It's axiomatic that ALL the positives move you up towards success.

Now, look under the Time Line to the negatives. How successful do you think someone will be if they are drained, aimless, pessimistic, vague about what they want, have few real plans, are scattered, haphazard and procrastinate most of the time?

Obvious on the surface, isn't it?

Clearly, the key to high achievement is owning far more positives and experiencing far fewer negatives. We just happen to have the tools, technology and people to make this happen for you!

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.
