Become Persistent — Eliminate Weak-Willed!

Improve TQ Attitude Factor 3I...

"I persist with passion until I succeed at whatever I do."

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.

Remember, ATTITUDE is the third color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because, even though you may have a passion for what's most important, until you also believe that you can make a real difference in your life, and those around you, nothing's going to happen.

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

TQ Factor 3I "Thin Line"...

Persistent vs. Weak-Willed is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 3I 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

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 Persistent... and a little LESS Weak-Willed?

TQ Factor 3I CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment 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.

TQ Factor 3I COST to your performance...

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.

TQ Factor 3I BENEFIT: 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.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 3I: 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.
