Become Determined — Eliminate Ambivalent!

Improve TQ Set Goals Factor 4F...

"I'm absolutely committed to hitting each of my targets."

The best predictor of success is your degree of commitment to your goals. Whenever you set a goal, write out why you're committed to accomplishing it. The "why" is far more important than the "how." Commitment -- sheer passion and will power -- can help overcome any deficiency in time, money or education. Make sure each of your goals is worthy of the time and effort necessary to achieve it. Then, make sure each of your goals is getting the absolute, unconditional commitment it deserves.

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.

"If you're climbing the ladder of life, you go rung by rung, one step at a time. Don't look too far up, set your goals high but take one step at a time. Sometimes you don't think you're progressing until you step back and see how high you've really gone." ~ Donny Osmond

TQ Factor 4F "Thin Line"...

Determined vs. Ambivalent is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 4F 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

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 Determined... and a little LESS Ambivalent?

TQ Factor 4F CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests commitment comes naturally because you set goals that have tremendous personal value. You are absolutely committed to achieving the goals you have right now. You can prove this by adding up the amount of time actually spent working towards these goals. Each goal receives the attention it deserves, and significant progress is made towards its attainment each week. You never complain about the amount of time spent in achieving these goals because your desire for the final outcome justifies the effort. This rare commitment helps you persist with passion, until each goal is reached -- regardless of how high or long-term it may be.

TQ Factor 4F COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you have no compelling reason to achieve the goals you set. Sure there's a payoff for each of your current goals, but it won't be a huge loss if you don't reach them in time. Your goals may be so unrealistic that you don't really believe they are attainable. Your goals may have been set from a desire to be like someone else, but they are not what you value the most. Your goals may have been delegated to you. Regardless of the reason, there are times when you question whether your goals are worth the time, stress and effort they are costing you.

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

You have a high probability of achieving your goals -- regardless of their size. You accumulate performance positives like "Determined, Wholehearted and Dedicated" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

Lacking commitment you have little chance of achieving the most important and rewarding goals. Negatives like "Ambivalent, Lackadaisical and Doubtful" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
