"An optimist may see a light where there is none, but why must the pessimist always run to blow it out?"

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- What could you do to make yourself feel better if you took a 2-minute happiness break right now?
- Remember the way you used to laugh when you were a kid -- until you were falling down?
- Look around. Who could you cheer up right now?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Energy Factor 1I? (Act Cheerfully -- Have More Fun. SMILE... SMILE... SMILE!) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (1I rated 8 or better) suggests you live life as though it's an adventure to be enjoyed. People enjoy working with you and miss you when you're gone. By maintaining the right perspective, you're able to keep everyone's spirits up -- even when a project becomes more work than expected. You try your best to avoid undue worry and consistently maintain a playful attitude while completing even the hardest task. You're capable of getting through the difficult times, without undue stress, by focusing on the reward instead of the effort.
A lack of commitment suggests you tend to live life as though it's a chore that must be finished. Somewhere along the way, you learned to respond to life with a serious tone and now you're stuck being serious most of the time. You tend to view everything as either an effort or an obligation. You rarely take the time to celebrate your successes. People welcome your presence and expertise, but rarely go out of their way to include you. Although you can always be counted on to produce what's required, you lack the ability to inspire others when things get difficult.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 1I more frequently?
You have more power. Everything comes easier when you maintain a cheerful attitude.
You accumulate performance positives like "Cheerful, Upbeat and High-spirited" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 1I?
You have less power. Everything is a lot more of an effort when you're gloomy.
Negatives like "Gloomy, Pessimistic and Begrudging" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
