What Causes Success?
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." ~ Winston Churchill
There is indeed a "secret" to success.
Have you ever wondered why some people achieve their dreams and goals, while others suffer the heartbreak of failed expectations?
We did too!
(Actually, this question is what led us to create the Gold Standard of personal and professional excellence.)
The secret is simple.
To summarize five years and $3 million worth of research: Successful people have the POWER to meet or exceed growing EXPECTATIONS.
It is no more complicated than that.
Put simply, successful people know what they want — and have the power to get it.
Conversely, people ultimately FAIL for two basic reasons: Fuzzy Expectations... Poor Execution.
- They fail to set clear expectations upon which they can take action.
(They fail then, because they don't EXPECT to succeed in the first place.)
- They fail because they lack the results-producing personal power to meet or exceed expectations.
(They fail then, because their EXPECTATIONS are greater than their power to EXECUTE.)
The Power of TQ is about quickly becoming more POWERFUL — by identifying and isolating core NEGATIVES in your performance — and transforming them into powerful POSITIVES.
The key to Success: More Positives... Fewer Negatives...
It's this simple.
With one LESS negative and one MORE positive driving your performance, your power to produce RESULTS soars, making you a great deal more efficient, productive and effective.
How The Power of TQ works in "real life" is nothing short of amazing. Which of these two people do you believe is on the fast-track to success?
- Person A who is frequently seen as energetic, passionate, enthusiastic, self-directed, focused, supportive, systematic, timely and proactive?
- Person B who is frequently seen as drained, burned out, aimless, pessimistic, vague, unprepared, unfocused, critical, haphazard, late and hesitant?
The Power of TQ will immediately improve the effectiveness of your performance, by immediately improving your power to produce results over time.
