The Starting Point For True Success...Since the initial release of Success On Purpose, Version 1.0 beta, we have had a tremendous out-pouring of comments, suggestions, testimonials and fabulous success stories... from people in every walk of life: Ministers, salespeople, executives, single moms, people who have lost hope, people looking to rekindle their dreams, people who are at the top of their respective professions and want to pass their successes on... indeed, people who want to live a life of passion and purpose.
In reviewing a few of the letters, it struck me that maybe we should use testimonials from the clergy... as they not only have unimpeachable credentials... but understand the need for connecting the dots from a person's purpose and mission in life... to their actions/performance.
It should be noted that Success On Purpose is not at all "theological" in nature, but helps people understand the importance of actually LIVING the "Purpose-Driven Life" Rick Warren so beautifully described.
In a way, Success On Purpose is the performance-oriented followup to his inspiring and life-changing book. Where his book is about the big WHY of life... our book is all about the HOW... and was designed to give you the starting-point to get going and keep growing.
Our point is well served by these select testimonials: To LIVE a life of passion and purpose... to LIVE a purpose-driven life... requires you to not just talk about it... think about it... or feel the inner-calling.
No, to LIVE your Purpose requires you to PERFORM on Purpose.
After all, when God tells me to do something, I have no other choice but to DO it. The "consequences" of failing to take the necessary actions to make it happen are, well, just too high a price to pay!
From Reverend Charles M. Taylor..."You have ONE life to live. What would you do if you could live a life of significance and importance—starting right now? What if you could really achieve all that you desire... all that you were meant to do... all that you were destined to accomplish in THIS lifetime? Well, you can. Success On Purpose offers a step-by-step, systematic approach to living the life of your dreams. There's nothing magical about it; it's practicality will help you overcome all your resistance points you may have about success. E.R. and Kent have taken the principles of success—and the enrichment of our soul's purpose—and organized them very clearly so that anyone who uses this system cannot help but attain a life of fulfillment. You WILL, as they say, become a Success On Purpose!"
From Dr. John Shelby, M.D...
"I have read virtually every book on passion, purpose and mission ever written. Success On Purpose is by far the best written, most practical and empowering book on BOTH success AND purpose I have ever read. It is the LAST book on the subject I will ever read. Thank you so much for creating it."
— Dr. John
From Gabriele L. Grach, Executive Coach, EAPC...
"Through the creation of Success On Purpose, you have not only given us a CLEAR understanding of how to create lasting hope by reconnecting us to our hearts, but also an effective and efficient systematic, sequential process for turning our dreams into a reality called LIFE—aka—'heaven on earth.' You have produced a methodology for continuous creation, evaluation and expansion via the highest level of contribution possible, given our unique talents, skills, values, visions, empowering roles, and worthy missions.""The continued use, practice and exercise of the valuable principles and brilliant framework found in the metaphor of the Time Prism performance spectrum, enables us to tangibly choose and practice intentional excellence over intentional mediocrity, by identifying, choosing, developing, evaluating and applying the best behaviors, best patterns and best practices available to mankind. Thus High Expectations and Brilliant Execution results in seemingly no time at all. This is what doing, being and contributing our best at any given time and in the least amount of time necessary, is all about. Congratulations to you and the TQ TEAM."
From Pastor Paul Early...
"When I finished reading Success On Purpose for the first time, I was astonished at how well (and how simply) you nailed the notion of Natural Mission and Authentic Direction!
We are all on a Mission as Rick Warren says. No question, we all have a Divine Purpose guiding our lives and the multiple Missions we take on in this one life we have to live."
"I was a little taken back when I came across St. Teresa of Avila's quote you used on page 62. It seemed out of place in a "success book" but it isn't..."
"Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now." —St. Teresa of Avila
"I have seen this quote a hundred times before. It's the inspiration behind Habitat for Humanity... "No Hands But Yours."
But somehow, when I came across it as you were discussing how your Natural Mission forms when you "triangulate" your Visions, Values and Roles, it jumped out at me as if Christ was saying to me, "Pay attention Paul... I can't change the world without YOU. I have given you a Purpose -- would you PLEASE get on it!"
"If I am to do Christ's WORK... to live my Mission in Him... I have no option but to, as you say "Perform On Purpose!"
"May God Bless You and Keep You in His Service."
"Many thanks for a wonderful system."
From Tom Dodd, RFC College Funding Partners...
"Success On Purpose is among the top five things I wish I had when I was 21. Recently I found myself gravely injured, empty handed, almost literally with nothing but the clothes on my back, my dreams, and my values. Turning as soon as I was able to Success on Purpose, I find myself just six months later with a reinvented life. Each day is filled with hard work and commitment, but is exciting, guided by principles and values, some of which I discredited much of my life.""If TQ and Success on Purpose were a boat leaving a desert island, every other self-help book I've ever read might be usefully bound up for use only as ballast." "Success on Purpose is a masterpiece of living, working, growing and flourishing—with, through, and among people. Use this book; consume it as though your life depended upon it—because it does. It's not about you; it's about everyone you will ever meet or love. Then go stomp the terra!"
From Mike Bailey, Life Coach...
"In the field of personal development so many things can seem theoretical and abstract. It's called "all that touchy-feely stuff"—or worse."
"This is not the case with Success On Purpose."
"If you are looking for an immediate and practical means to make changes in your life, in a relationship, in an organization or business, using the principles and exercises explained in Success on Purpose, you will not go wrong."
"In fact, it will bring you a beacon light flooding the path before you enlightening you and whoever else is involved in your creation of change and achievement like nothing else.
You will know what you stand for, where you are going, who you must become to get there and what it will take each day and week to get yourself there."
"This is pure creation for true achievement."
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
— Mike Bailey
From Lee Wise, Director Of Internships...
"Shortly before I received my copy of Success On Purpose from E.R., I was reflecting on my greatest enemies in terms of what one might term 'success in Jesus.' Two of the enemies I identified were lack of self-discipline and busyness.""Personally speaking, I believe that anyone who identifies with these 'enemies'—regardless of their particular focus in life—will discover in Success on Purpose something extremely valuable: they will be given a practical, hands-on tool for identifying and capitalizing on their own major reasons for winning any challenge they may face in terms of their own self development." "While I approach life from a faith-based background and don't believe anything in print can replace an ongoing, intimate relationship with Jesus, I do consider Success On Purpose to be one of the finest resources available for assisting people in their pursuit of living a full and meaningful life." "Having served most of my life in one form or another in what might be termed a coaching capacity—including serving over twenty years as the Director of Internships in a seminary setting—I quite naturally gravitate to anything that provides people with concrete steps of action to help them become better persons. In fact, that's one reason I ended up requiring my student interns to acquire and use The Power Of TQ as a part of their internship training and why I recommend Success On Purpose: simply put, it is filled with those concrete steps of action!" "On a more personal note, I appreciate it when I can get to know a person well enough to sense their heartbeat regarding a particular endeavor, and I can say from my experience that E. R. Haas has reflected to me a consistent, passionate desire to help others discover their purpose and live a life of personal fulfillment." "Many thanks to E. R., Kent and the entire Success On Purpose team for not only the privilege of working with you on this project in a small way, but also for being a very positive influence to me personally, way before I was able to do so!" — Lee Wise, Director of Internships Baptist Bible Seminary (1987-2009)
From Pastor Esther Chambers...
"One of my favorite sayings is, 'Life is a journey not a destination.' I love this quote because it challenges me to ask, 'If life is a journey, where am I going?'
Will I choose to awaken motivated to follow a crystal-clear vision of my spiritual calling? Or, will I arise and allow life's circumstances to control me like a dandelion seed caught in crosswinds?"
"How does one develop a crystal-clear vision of a spiritual calling or any calling, be it entrepreneurial, academic, or otherwise? Then, how does one move from a place of vision into action and follow-through?"
"ThinkTQ's Success On Purpose is the best success-creation system I've ever come across. It is filled with more than just academic prose. It has easy-to-follow diagrams and methods which anyone can use to move from a place of confusion to a place of clarity, power and execution."
"ThinkTQ's Success on Purpose is a compass, a tool box and a teacher presented in the form of a success book.
Success on Purpose empowers me daily to follow my dreams, but more importantly, using ThinkTQ's success system, I combined three important roles in my life to guarantee that I will not only live MY best life... but to help others do so as well."
Pastor Esther Chambers
From Annie Armen, Producer/Director...
"Here is how I can best describe ThinkTQ, Inc. ThinkTQ is like a treasure island. If you dig in deep enough, you will locate their global well rich in resources and nutrients for the human mind, heart, body, and soul. The beauty about the ThinkTQ Well is that it runs 24/7 for anyone and everyone who is thirsty for both 'active' and 'PRO'active knowledge, and in need of exceptional, state-of-the-art resources as nutrients for bumping up expectations, and 'executing brilliant results instantly,' as my dear friend E. R. Haas always says.""I am a walking testament to you both after producing Legends in Excellence™, and walking proof of how Success On Purpose rolls! Thank you E. R. Haas and Kent Madson, not only for creating a starting point, but for scientifically proving where one must PRO-actively begin to apply your provided fountain of knowledge consistently over time, in order to achieve brilliant results!" "Here's the bottom line: Success on Purpose—MORE than a Book, MORE than a Success Map, MORE than a Directional Performance Guide—it is your Starting Point to your Mission on Demand™ now, it is your key to unlock the greatest doors of your life, of your destiny, to fulfill your legacy in Intentional Excellence! So don't just read Success on Purpose, use it, turn it, open your success door, Expect More, Execute Better, and win, because you CAN!"
— Hurricane Annie
From Tim McFadden...
Here is my blurb: "This book was a vehicle of revelation for me."
That is so true. But there is much more...
I consider myself just an average guy, but if you put a blurb like that and say "Tim McFadden, Attorney and Doctoral Candidate in Theology, Oxford", it might carry more weight—I mean if you want to add mine to whatever else you've got, which I won't presume is worth it. But I do want to help!
I see you guys working in a sort of Proverbs of Solomon space, yes? It's good practical wisdom about how things actually do work, regardless of how much noise one is making about "religion."
There was that ancient Solomonic sense of Wisdom being the warp and woof of reality; and now we have the Logos of John 1 as the full revelation of this reality.
So I think it glorifies God (who meets us everywhere certainly in daily life: it says he cares about how the stones in the trader's bags are weighted) as you just keep diligently, prayerfully pumping out true stuff about how life actually works.
It really has been part of an improvement in my life (though I backslide from time-to-time!) just by the presence of reality in your work, which seems to me grace from God — who, Incarnate, spent more years nailing, cutting and sanding than he did preaching.
Anyway, keep it going, E.R. Fight the good fight.
Thank you so much for the wonderful thoughts and the encouragement it represents.
I too am a man of faith, and strongly -- actually with 100% of my body, mind and soul -- right down to the DNA strands believe that James was right: there is no faith without works.
Here's what the Holy Bible says about Faith and Deeds...
James 14: What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? 15: Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. 16: 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? 17: In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18: 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.
I know that Paul and Peter had a "time" with James, arguing if faith is all we need, but if we do not ACT on our faith... take ACTION to right the wrongs, help the poor, feed the sick (all verbs) -- then what we have in the end are words that are not true expressions of our faith -- to serve -- to love -- to help -- to, as I like to put it, live the law with love.
While TQ is in no way a theological undertaking, it does help people become more efficient, effective and powerful at delivering on their "good intentions".
No question, we are saved by Grace... but leave a legacy of works/results that derive from our faith in action.
This is why Success On Purpose is so important. It connects our Divine Purpose with Personal Performance. The only way we can LIVE our Purpose... is to PERFORM on Purpose.
If we get this right, we will help millions of people help billions of people throughout the world!
God bless and thank you Tim!

If you want to scan excerpts from the thousands of letters we get each year, here's what some of our enthusiastic customers have to say...
"Yesterdays don't matter..."
You are 100% correct. What was good enough to get me by last year doesn't have a snow-balls chance this year. I have to do things differently -- just to keep pace.
The Power of TQ truly opened my eyes to my current limitations and my ultimate potential. I am ever so grateful.
Santa Barbra, CA
"The Power of TQ changed my mind and changed my life..."
I rarely read self-help materials. I don't normally write endorsements. But your idea of creating a book just for me had a lot of appeal. I'm glad I got it, as it's changed my life.
"You should call this the Survival Edge..."
I've taken a dozen time management courses and read 20 books on improving my time management and organization skills. This goes WAY beyond anything I could ever hope for. It gave me a serious edge when I came up for my last job review, not to mention the confidence I now have.
New York, NY
"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.
District of Columbia
"I learned More in 20 Minutes Than I Could On My Own in 20 Years..."
I am Senior Sales Manager for a Fortune 500 company. The pressure is intense. The demands are enormous. I learned more about super-star performance by reading The Power of TQ, than taking a hundred seminars. I can't wait to take my test again next year and see if I did increase my TQ by 20 points. If I do, look for me on the cover of Forbes or Business Week!
"Today's TQ Works..."
How right you are. Training, without repetition and reminders, is in fact useless. It lacks the punch to change habits and lacks the structure for success. Today's TQ works! Thank You.
"Powerful, Personal, Transformational..."
Never did I expect a web site to make me smarter. Never did I expect to wake up one morning and find someone to help me see my life from an entirely new perspective. You did both.
"Time Is More Critical Than Ever. You Guys Deliver..."
Without doubt, this is the absolute best experience of my adult life. I work in a profession where time is not only of the essence, it's everything! You've given me a tool that I will use for the rest of my life.
"The First Simplified and Unified Approach to Success..."
You should call this Success 101 or Success 1-2-3. It's simple and it's brilliant: 1 - Determine what you want. 2 - Find out what's holding you back. 3 - Eliminate it! I got the message and I'm one happy customer!
"Too bad every college doesn't use this to evaluate your success potential BEFORE you leave..."
"Simple, Simple, Simple! BUT, it changed my life..."
This simple straight in approach has changed the way I look at life. As you say, life is a blur of actions, reactions, urgencies and emergencies. By breaking down who I am, what I do and how I do things, I now have the power to live a life of results, not regrets!
"Fantastic Ideas = Fantastic Results..."
This stuff is fabulous! The idea is so simple: remind me, reward me and results me! I love it! Your tqMail is so consistently helpful, I would never even consider missing a day. In the last 3 months, my boss noticed a big change in my attitude and my organization. He gave me the raise I had been asking for... for over 2 years. I guess I'm now worth it!
"No other word but THRILLED can describe the impact this has made on my life..."
I was poking around the web one night when I found your site. WOW!!! Little did I realize there was someone out there who had a handle on the issues I am facing right now. I took your test, ordered your book and was not only pleased... I was thrilled! You delivered exactly what I needed, when I needed it and in a way I could make use of it.
"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...
San Francisco, CA
"The First truly NEW way to Measure Performance..."
WOW! I clicked a few boxes and YOU suddenly know ME better than I do! Before taking your TQ Test, I only knew something was wrong. I now know exactly what it is! I am motivated and enthused. I also know I can do what it takes to succeed -- on a level I never thought possible.
"I Finally Saw Time and Results In a Whole New Light..."
That formula for success (TQ=R/T) is wonderfully simple. I hate math... but even I could do it in my head. More Results, my TQ goes up. Same Results but at the expense of more Time, my TQ drops. It's great! Thanks for a program that makes sense.
"This gave me a personal edge..."
I'm always looking for something new to give me an edge. You are TOTALLY RIGHT. It has become a survival of the smartest economy. I highly recommend this to anyone who has to become smarter today than she was yesterday.
"The Power of TQ is WONDERFUL..."
It's worked wonders in my life. Fast easy read. Its power is timeless. And I really liked the way you linked everything together and color coded it for instant access -- from my dreams and visions to my actions. Simple but highly effective. It's wonderful!
"I was floundering and had no IDEA why..."
My boss came in a week ago and told me that I needed to work a lot harder or I was out of here. But I was already working as hard as I could... or so I thought. Now I know that working harder isn't more time and effort, it is working smarter. I not only turned my career around, it changed my entire life. Even my friends noticed the difference too.
