Become Courageous — Eliminate Fearful!

Improve TQ Act Now Factor 10D...

"I use fear as a call to action, and act without delay to reduce the threat."

When you are stopped by fear, you almost always fail. Every type of fear -- physical, emotional or social -- has the beneficial purpose of protecting you from harm. However, this does not mean you must always stop. Remember this: thought directs action. Confirm the value of your goal and the appropriateness of your actions. Then, consciously choose to focus on more productive thoughts. Master this and you can act in spite of your fear -- and continue toward your desired goal.

Remember, ACT NOW is the tenth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because nothing gets done without first getting started.

You CAN achieve your greatest dreams and aspirations. Simply improve your TQ Act Now Color.

TQ Factor 10D "Thin Line"...

Courageous vs. Fearful is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 10D 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
 
Courageous
Committed
Undaunted
Proactive
Determined
Unstoppable
    Fearful
Intimidated
Paralyzed
Evasive
Diverted
Disempowered
 

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 Courageous... and a little LESS Fearful?

TQ Factor 10D CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are a person whose answer to a fearful situation is to take immediate action. Rather than sit and worry, you do whatever you can to resolve or reduce the threat. You change your focus from what you fear, to what you want and can do. You gather information, seek expert opinions, change direction, increase performance, sharpen skills and make better plans. You get help when needed, shore up defenses and take any action necessary to improve the situation.

TQ Factor 10D COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who does more fretting than fixing. Progress stops when you are confronted with a fearful situation. Lacking the personal strategies to keep going in spite of the fear, you tend to avoid the situation rather than resolve it. It's easier to skirt the issue, delay the conversation or divert yourself with unrelated tasks. Unfortunately, these strategies never really improve your situation, and you remain a victim to the fear for as long as it exists.

TQ Factor 10D BENEFIT: You have more power...

You gain immediate power over your fears by taking a positive forward action. You accumulate performance positives like "Courageous, Committed and Undaunted" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 10D: Less Power...

You are robbed of all personal power until the cause of the fear goes away. Negatives like "Fearful, Intimidated and Paralyzed" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
