"Our business in life is not to get ahead of others, but to get ahead of ourselves -- to break our own records, to outstrip our yesterday by our today." ~ Stewart B. Johnson

How Many Reasons Do You Need?

If you do not have the sustained physical energy level to be at the top of your game each day, here's some simple, but highly effective advice: Create a long list of reasons why you should eat correctly. Do it for:

  • Greater self-confidence...
  • Advancement of your career...
  • Feeling more productive after work...
  • Fewer medical bills...
  • Better appearance...
  • For your loved ones...

The longer the list, the greater your WILL power. The greater your WILL power, the more likely you WILL achieve the Results you want.

The food you eat can either fuel you all day long, or fool you with a quick power surge. You need energy for the entire day -- not just the next few hours. Does what you eat or drink keep you going strong, or do you have a big slump afterwards? Get off the energy roller coaster by keeping your energy level steady. Find out which foods give you the strongest burn for the longest time, and change your diet accordingly.

Quick fixes are really slow destroyers; caffeine and candy are no substitute for nutritious fuels.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Energy Color: Eat Healthy -- Avoid Quick-Hits.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. How many reasons to eat correctly can you list?
  3. Is your list of reasons to eat correctly longer than your list of reasons not to?
  5. What else could you accomplish today if you had more energy?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Energy Factor 1D? (Eat Healthy -- Avoid Quick-Hits.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (1D rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who has the endurance to be at your best all day. You understand that to complete each of your goals before the day is over, you need a constant supply of energy. You don't use quick-fixes to get through the next hour, but eat nutritious meals that carry you throughout the day. You have the foresight and self-control to choose the foods, snacks and drinks that will produce the greatest staying power over the longest period of time. This allows you to maintain a strong, constant energy level -- without the roller coaster effect of sugar, simple carbohydrates and caffeine.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone whose energy level is far from level. You live on an energy roller-coaster and trick yourself into thinking that the quick-fixes you eat and drink are exactly what you need at the time. Worse, you sacrifice your long-term energy level for what you hope is an immediate improvement. However, these habits rarely give you the staying power to perform at your best. It's not unusual to find long periods in your day when you lose motivation, and even the smallest task seems like too much effort.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 1D more frequently?

You have more power. Your diet provides a strong, steady burn of energy all day long.

You accumulate performance positives like "Steady, Consistent and Sustained" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 1D?

You have less power. There are too many hours in the day when you are simply running on fumes.

Negatives like "Erratic, Inconsistent and Moody" 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...
