Welcome All Believers...
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." ~ Joshua 1:9-11 (NIV)
The Essence of Spirit-Led Success:
Divine Faith + Powerful Personal Performance...
Welcome to our "parent site", ThinkTQ.com: The Home of Intentional Excellence! Here you will be introduced to several vital tools for achieving Spirit-Led Success.
These tools, in conjunction with your Holy Bible and the Lord standing by your side as you do the exercises in The Believer's Guide to Achieving Success On Purpose, will give you the means to WIN your 5 most important Missions in Christ.
All we ask of you is to have a "discerning heart" as God speaks to you through this material and while using these tools.
As you have learned in The Believer's Guide, it is the connection between our Divine Faith and Purpose — combined with our personal ability to Perform on Purpose — that permits us to not only LIVE in God's Grace, but to actually deliver on His Divine Commission to LOVE... SERVE... and GLORIFY Him. Performance requires the POWER to produce tangible RESULTS, which is what we will be addressing here.
Values or Verbs?
Many Christians see the words LOVE... SERVE and GLORIFY as VALUES, and merely pay lip service to them. We see these words as verbs — ACTION WORDS — that must be put into ACTION in order to actually LIVE them each and every day we are alive. If we don't, we are not truly ALIVE and LIVE in the Spirit.
"What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like."
He also advised, "Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you." Saint Augustine
Thus, improving your TQ (Time Quotient) is a very big deal. Here at ThinkTQ.com we measure and improve your capacity to take bold ACTION... to LIVE your VALUES and ACHIEVE your VISIONS.
If you want to actually WIN your 5 most important Missions, as Christ expects of you, you simply must have the POWER to produce positive RESULTS over TIME.
Power: Energy In Motion.
Important. We recognize God's Infinite POWER over Heaven and Earth. When we use the word power, we use it in the purely physical sense, a measurement of your personal power to produce Work over Time (P=W/T) or in physics, Power = Energy over Time (P=E/T.)
Steven R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People observed that...
"Power is the faculty or capacity to act, the strength and potency to accomplish something. It is the vital energy to make choices and decisions. It also includes the capacity to overcome deeply embedded habits and to cultivate higher, more effective ones."
I believe that this definition is correct from both a spiritual and physical perspective.
So, if you are deeply committed to God's Divine PURPOSE for your life... deeply committed to actually LIVING the Word... deeply committed to ACHIEVING His plan for your life... then you have no alternative but to become the best YOU possible — by increasing your capacity to LOVE... your POWER to SERVE and the strength of the ACTIONS you take for His Glory.
This Is a VERY Big Deal...
Putting Your Faith Into Action Is a VERY Big Deal...
You know God wants you fully ALIVE... spiritually, physically, emotionally and financially...
You know God wants you to put your FAITH into ACTION...
You know God wants you to LOVE more...
You know God wants you to SERVE better...
You know you want to truly GLORIFY God by becoming the best YOU possible.
You are in the RIGHT place... exactly where God wants you to be!
As we have said many times before, it is not enough to just KNOW your purpose... to the answer the big question Pastor Rick Warren asked in The Purpose Driven Life:
No doubt, answering this question is a huge first step forward on your path of spiritual development... to start the process of becoming a Spirit-Led Success. But the truth is, it is just the first step.
You must now take the NEXT step...
Once you know the answer to this question—once you understand the Divine reason for your existence—there's an even BIGGER question to be answered... a question that is hairy, scary and to some, overwhelming... like a question that will haunt you for the rest of your life until you discover the ANSWER:
to make this happen?!"
Just HOW can I live a life of passion and purpose? What, exactly, am I expected to DO? How can I transform my life's purpose into an entire series of unstoppable missions... and ultimately achieve the success I desire, spiritually, personally and professionally?
A GIANT question with a SIMPLE answer.
You are going to, starting right now and for the rest of your life, PERFORM On Purpose!
You are going to greatly expand your God-given skills, talents and strengths... to the point where success comes easy to you.
You are going to LISTEN to the Word of God and ACT on what you hear... quickly moving forward with Authentic Direction and a sense of Natural Mission you have never felt before.
You are going to put your FAITH into ACTION.
This is not merely a good idea, it is Gospel...
"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, 'Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, 'You have faith; I have deeds.' Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do."
~ James 2 14-18 (NIV)
You are going to constantly remember the 4 R's of Success: Doing the RIGHT Things... for the RIGHT Reasons... in the RIGHT Way... at the RIGHT Time.
You are going to develop the 4 C's of the Winner's Mindset: Absolute CLARITY of VALUES... Absolute CLARITY of VISION... Absolute CLARITY of ROLES... which will lead you to total CONVICTION... unconditional COMMITMENT... and the David vs. Goliath COURAGE to take BOLD ACTION every day you are alive.
You will WIN your 5 most important Missions in your life... because — with the Lord standing at your side — and using our tools, you will become a Spirit-Led Success.
Together with your Holy Bible as your spiritual anchor, the Believer's System will take you from where you stand right now, and ask you to confirm before your Holy Father, what the Divine Purpose for your life is, and then...
Give you everything you need to step up to the plate, and PERFORM On Purpose.
"Success On Purpose steps up to the plate, swings the bat, and delivers a home run. A unique, timely and excellent sequel to The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren" ~ Lee Wise, Former Director of Internships ~ Baptist Bible Seminary
About The Time Prism...
"When you get to the end of all the light you know and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly." ~ Edward Teller
Because you can't always SEE how well you are performing, we created a Time Prism to cut through the blur of daily life.
Look at the colors all around you.
Look at all the colors in nature.
Now, look at the Color of Your Performance.
The Time Prism is comprised of 10 separate Colors that define the effectiveness of your performance: Your physical and mental ENERGY level... your sense of purpose and MISSION... your ATTITUDE... your ability to SET GOALS... your power to MAKE PLANS... your ability to PRIORITIZE your activities... your ability to create powerful interpersonal SYNERGY... your ability to get and stay ORGANIZED... OPTIMIZE your time... and take bold ACTION.
"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." ~ Genesis 9:16 (NIV)
The Time Prism continuously monitors the ebbs and flow within your performance. It gives you an instantaneous reflection of how much raw -- results producing -- personal power you have available at every point in time.
The Time Prism helps you SEE your performance with full spectrum clarity.
The reality of this tool is it measures how PRISMATIC you are. No, we did not make up this word!
Prismatic means MULTIFACETED and BRILLIANT... shining like the proverbial diamond. In short, this test will be, for many, a true wakeup call, bringing their performance into alignment with their purpose... shining that incredibly bright light on the dark corners of your life... so you can actually SEE what you must do to become all that you are meant to be.
TQ Test Instructions...
On the next page, you will be presented with 10 simple questions about how well you are performing, in each of the 10 Colors of The Time Prism.
Relax. There is no pass or fail for this test.
However, we do want to look at the entirety of you, not just little pieces and parts.
Once you have answered these 10 questions, we will give you a short explanation of your scores, and advise you on your next step.
A Word of Hope...
With millions of responses to our various TQ Tests, we have heard a common theme: WOW -- I had no idea that this is where I stand.
Do not worry about your numbers. Remember, you have us and the Good Lord to help you improve... every step of the way because...
Christ Has No Body On Earth...
Christ has no body but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
Yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
St. Teresa of Avila (1515 - 1582)
