Real Story Of The Week...

"Since turning up my TQ, I've increased my earning potential at least 5 times or more (and still growing)."

Valerie Waugaman: Arnold Cup Champion, Entrepreneur,
TQ Provocateur of Intentional Excellence.

"My mission is to be the best I can be at any given time in my life, radiating positive energy everywhere I go. I want to be a true CHAMPION, a person who is balanced physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. A person who gives, loves, encourages and inspires her life partner, her family, her friends, and everyone she meets to reach greatness in life. I want to know that my fire and desire for life will be strong no matter what situation I am in; good or bad; healthy or ill; rich or poor; utopia or disaster. With this attitude I believe I can change the world. First I must take care of my body, mind and spirit with proper fuel, exercise, meditation, and recovery. I "aspire to inspire." I believe that through Fit Mission and Octane Cafe, we can expose people to the benefits of living a balanced, healthy lifestyle and provide them with the proper fuel they need to dream big and go after those dreams with the vigor and energy of a fit body, mind, and spirit. With this message, I want to travel the world."
~ Valerie Waugaman, Founder of Fit Mission

Before TQ, I was dedicated and ambitious, but I lacked focus, balance, stability, and a PLAN. Since turning up my TQ, I've increased my earning potential at least 5 times or more (and still growing).

I've had the ability to increase staff at my company, enabling me to focus on building relationships and marketing our healthy message nationwide. With a high TQ, I've even started a non-profit organization to help others improve their quality of life through health & fitness and turning up their TQ. I have more time to help others. Now, in addition to working harder, I find ways to work smarter! The TQ System has changed my life for good!

As entrepreneurs, my fiance and I realized we needed to improve our systems to stay alive with our start-up restaurant business and also keep our personal lives from spinning out of control. My fiance first discovered TQ on the internet, and I dove head first into the materials and didn't stop until I adopted a new way of thinking about reaching my biggest aspirations. TQ just makes sense.

To help gain exposure for my business, I started competing in national fitness competitions specifically in the category called "Figure." After competing for a year and a half, I had earned my Professional status and was invited to compete as one of the twenty-four top figure athletes in the world. This news was very exciting, but it also meant a lot of time and hard work ahead. This could mean big success for the future of my company.

Thank goodness I found TQ when preparing for this show. I went on to place 8th in the world at the Arnold Classic Figure International!

For me, this was a dream come true, but I wasn't satisfied just yet. Two months later, I geared up for another big Professional Figure Competition in Denver called the Colorado Pro.

This time, I focused on turning up my TQ in all aspects of my life leading up to the big day. I took a long hard look back at my TQ power from my previous show, and focused on improving my weakest colors.

The first color needing more intensity was my Mission Color. Over the course of one week, I made the time to go through the TQ Mission Personal Workshop, specifically the part about choosing my top ten personal values which are: Courage, Health, Love, Empowerment, Independence, Spirituality, Gratitude, Creativity, Ambition, Discovery. From there, I reworked my mission statement and my goals. Turns out, that's the best thing I could have done.


New opportunities are now coming at me faster than I can keep up. The big thing that stood out to me with the TQ system is the diversity of learning tools: comprehensive, visual, audio, and repetition through workbooks, diagrams, CDs, cut-out reminders, and daily emails. There's no excuse for not using the tools. I've used each of these formats at some point in time and sometimes all of them at once.

The first thing I did, was plant the 100 cut-out TQ Factor cards all over my house, car, and work. As if that wasn't enough, I even made my own motivational TQ color boards to power up my workouts creating a mind-body memorization system; turned the "Successful People...." list into daily mirror declarations; and devised a TQ daily planner with a "Today's Goals" page and next actions list for each goal.

The first color of focus is ENERGY! There is no question about how important this first step is. My energy level directly determines the amount of power I have to achieve my goals for each day. Without a high level of physical energy and mental stamina, it is near impossible for me to have the positive attitude necessary to follow through with my mission. Of course, the rest of my TQ colors would be weak and faded as well.

I now know that when things aren't going my way and I'm not getting the results I want, it usually means I need to turn up my TQ and start choosing Intentional Excellence over Intentional Mediocrity. If it is to be, it's up to me. I'm no better than the next person, but I have the power to turn up my TQ at any given time. This is a weapon I will always have and now I want to share it with others.

Thank You TQ! Thank you E.R. Haas and Kent Madson! It is your mission that ultimately changed my life! I would like the chance to help you fulfill your mission by teaching your system and turning up the world's TQ!

Dream Big! And go after those dreams with the vigor and energy of a healthy body, mind, and spirit.

"The competition is brutal -- this is our edge..."

We are in a brutally competitive industry and if we don't learn to sell and compete smarter, it is the difference between us getting the business or getting out of business. This gave us the edge we were looking for.
