Success vs. Survival…

Your Brain is Holding You Back from Maximum Success
The Most Eye-Opening
Look at YOU—Ever.
Now On Sale.

According to neuroscientists from Berkeley, Stanford and Harvard, there is a dark force hidden deep within us that causes us to, quite literally, shoot ourselves in both feet when attempting to achieve our goals — earn more money… produce greater sales… achieve faster career growth… develop deeper relationships… attain financial freedom… you name it.

After years of exhaustive research, with thousands of brain scans as tangible proof, they now understand why some people are happy… successful… and live a full life of meaning and purpose — where others with equal talent simply end up on the short end of the stick, frequently finding themselves falling behind in their pursuit of success.

Put simply, after hundreds of thousands of years of evolution and human development, researchers have found that our brain is not wired for SUCCESS… it is optimized for SURVIVAL… and exhibits a condition they call “Negative Bias”.

It is this primal brain wiring that keeps the vast majority of people from achieving up to their full potential.

The good news is, there is a “cure” — and a simple one at that — to rewiring our brains for Maximum Success instead of mere Survival. The truth is, as long as you remain in survival mode thinking, Negative Bias will torpedo any chance you have at higher achievement.

You can be a generally positive and optimistic person, yet when it comes to acting on your dreams and visions, there is a strong probability that you will, somewhere along the line, sabotage your success by permitting your brain to hold you back from full force action.

This eventually leads to permitting your fears and doubts to win over inner desires and wants… and sets up the ultimate self-fulfilling prophecy of turning a good idea into a total disaster.

Our experience at TQ underlines this condition and we have taken a simple, yet highly effective, new approach to helping normal people, just like you, erase thousands of years of conditioning for survival, not success, in a 100 Day TQ Challenge for Maximum Success!

No brain surgery needed!

I found this interesting article in the October 2013 issue of The Atlantic. It gives you a quick glimpse into the stunning research on this area of brain science.

“According to Dr. Rick Hanson, a neuropsychologist, a member of U.C. Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center’s advisory board, and author of the book Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm, and Confidence, our brains are naturally wired to focus on the negative, which can make us feel stressed and unhappy even though there are a lot of positive things in our lives. True, life can be hard, and legitimately terrible sometimes. Hanson’s book (a sort of self-help manual grounded in research on learning and brain structure) doesn’t suggest that we avoid dwelling on negative experiences altogether—that would be impossible. Instead, he advocates training our brains to appreciate positive experiences when we do have them, by taking the time to focus on them and install them in the brain.

“As our ancestors evolved, they needed to pass on their genes. And day-to-day threats like predators or natural hazards had more urgency and impact for survival. On the other hand, positive experiences like food, shelter, or mating opportunities, those are good, but if you fail to have one of those good experiences today, as an animal, you would have a chance at one tomorrow. But if that animal or early human failed to avoid that predator today, they could literally die as a result.”

“That’s why the brain today has what scientists call a negativity bias. I describe it as like Velcro for the bad, Teflon for the good. For example, negative information about someone is more memorable than positive information, which is why negative ads dominate politics. In relationships, studies show that a good, strong relationship needs at least a 5:1 ratio of positive to negative interactions.”

The simple idea is that we we all want to have good things inside ourselves: happiness, resilience, love, confidence, and so forth. The question is, how do we actually grow those, in terms of the brain? It’s really important to have positive experiences of these things that we want to grow, and then really help them sink in, because if we don’t help them sink in, they don’t become neural structure very effectively.”

Succeed Not Merely Survive…

You can forever remain in the natural brain state, SURVIVAL mode thinking. Or, you can move on up to SUCCESS thinking. You can continue to be reactive, or you can choose to be results oriented.

There is a major difference between people in the top 5-10-15% and the bottom 80-85%. That difference is found in how well and how often you flood your brain each day with Positive Thoughts designed to train your brain to be results-oriented.


This Success Crash Course is like reading 3-5 entire books a DAY, gleaning just the most inspiring, motivational and transformational gems of wisdom from each. The great news is you do it in less than 20 minutes a day!

Take a look at your life the way it is right now.

Do you feel secure, safe and confident?

Do you absolutely love your job and want to grow it to the fullest extent possible? Or, are you in the same boat with 85% of the population who are dissatisfied with their career path, money and financial freedom?

You can overcome the dark force now holding you back from a life you’ll love.

All you need to do is eject 5 great Positive Ideas each day for every single Negative that comes your way.

We make doing this fast, easy and highly effective — giving you a fast-track 100 day Sprint to Success!
