When Is A Good Reason Not A Good Excuse?

Examine your rationalizations. Your comfort zone will make every effort to justify your reasons for not proceeding. Accept no excuses! Move your comfort zone forward -- and you move your goals forward.

Setting a goal is never enough. To reach your goal, you must continue to take whatever actions are necessary until you finally succeed. While success is never guaranteed, if you don't persevere to the end, it will never come your way. Of all the skills to master, determination and persistence are two of the most important. You can have a perfect game plan but if you lack persistence, you may as well forfeit the game before you even start to play.

Rationalizations occur whenever your FEAR is greater than your PASSION.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Attitude Color: Persist With Passion Until the Desired Results are Attained.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Who's in charge this week -- you or your comfort zone?
  3. What "decisionalizations" have you used lately to keep from taking action?
  5. What task have you been avoiding all week? Do it!

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Attitude Factor 3I? (Persist With Passion Until the Desired Results are Attained.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (3I rated 8 or better) suggests people can count on you to see every project through to the end. No matter how large or small your goal, you stay focused until you achieve what you want. You're able to do this, not by the burden of a promised obligation, but by keeping your sights on the value of the goal. By keeping the desired outcome constantly in view, you stay motivated to do whatever it takes -- as long as it takes -- to achieve what you want. Each goal accomplished rewards determination and reinforces your willingness to persist on future projects.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who lacks the personal commitment to see your projects through to completion. You may start projects, but your passion diminishes well before they're completed. There's always a good explanation -- and no shortage of rationalizations -- why many projects never get accomplished. Each time you abandon a goal before it has been completed, you give up a little more of what you have the right to expect. Ultimately, you will lose all faith in your ability to achieve the life you want.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 3I more frequently?

You have more power. You consistently finish what you start -- from small personal projects to major career goals.

You accumulate performance positives like "Persistent, Tenacious and Self-Motivated" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 3I?

You have less power. When you stop short of accomplishing what you want, you sabotage your present and future success.

Negatives like "Weak-Willed, Capricious and Undependable" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"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.
