Review: Discover God’s Plan For Your Life
“The Believer’s Guide will captivate you. You won’t be able to ignore the content. You will find it useful, inspirational, and motivational. Acting on it will glorify God through behavior consonant with Scripture.” ~ Dr. John Edmund Haggai, Christian Statesman, Founder The Haggai Institute for Advanced Leadership
Our Story, The COVID Crisis, God & You…
And critical that you Act now.
You have heard that God has a plan for you.
But what you might not realize, He wants you to ACT on it.
Now, not someday later.
With so much pain, division, isolation, and fear in America today, The Believer’s Guide is an indispensable tool that is needed now more than ever. It is unique in both the world of secular personal growth and scriptural teachings.
You may download a full review copy at no cost by clicking on the cover. Copies for your congregation may be purchased directly or on Amazon.
The Believer’s Guide has been written by performance experts who believe that Christ-Centered, Authentic Direction is the key to success in this time of crisis.
Our message is simple: God has a plan but you will need to chart the course and act with an unwavering degree of Spiritual Integrity.
Today, we are all struggling to make sense of how God could allow this Pandemic to infect our bodies and souls, but through our belief in Him, we know we will be stronger because of the struggle.
As Christians, we are under attack, political division, and anarchy reigns, freedom of speech is going out the window along with our prospect for financial freedom.
We are being forced to accept values that are fundamentally against everything we have been taught and what we believe in. Christians have been singled out by the political elite as “a basket of deplorables” — subject to a cancel-culture that desires to strip us of our voice and our heritage.
Even our faith. Especially our faith.
Sadly, dark churches and heavy hearts are the “new norm.”
This Guide is dedicated to everyone who needs a new starting point for living their dreams and achieving their aspirations in His name. It is about finding Spirit-Led Success through prayer, an easy to understand process, and a plan that leads to Spiritual Integrity.
The Believer’s Guide will give you a new sense of empowered purpose and Authentic Direction.
As a Christian, I see the world through the eyes of Hope and Grace.
As a CEO and author, I see the world through the eyes of purpose-driven performance.
Uniting the two worlds of high purpose with high performance was our objective in creating The Believer’s Guide… a cause now spanning some 25 years.
Some call it an answer to prayers. You might call it God’s plan at work, but we actually started this faith walk in 2003 when Pastor Rick Warren wrote Purpose-Driven Church and put us at the top of his CD called Rick’s Cool Picks.
Almost immediately, we enrolled thousands of ministers who saw TQ as something of the handiwork of God in helping them discern their goals, mission, and personal performance using a clear, scientific methodology. (A few testimonials/stories below.)
This was the genesis of our first edition of Success On Purpose. Today, living in God’s Promise is more important than ever.
Today, the world has been profoundly changed — where our most important liberties have been stripped away or stretched to the breaking point. Our very culture is at risk.
For so many, “Why me, Lord?” is not just on our prayer lips, it is a constant reminder of what we personally and as a nation have lost during this Pandemic. Some of us are facing near-hopeless challenges.
We need guidance, direction, and beyond hope, we need a personal plan to help us live in Spiritual Integrity as we face these desperate times.
We want our lives to stand for something.
We want to know that there is an understandable process at work where we can connect the dots from our tormented lives to creating a life of meaning and significance.
We want to be happy… at peace. To become all God created us to be in His image—a Spirit-Led Success.
Most of all, we want to know that there is something important for us to do now… not to just wish and hope… or pray and wait… but to put our faith into meaningful action.
COVID is a terrible plague but has created an opportunity to honor God by living in both faith and acts.
The Believer’s Guide is for those of us who want to keep our promises to God, especially in this terrible time of crisis.
As the cover promises, it will deliver that which you need most right now, Authentic Direction leading to a life of Spiritual Integrity.
It is a step-by-step, prayer-based guide to
answering the greatest question of our time, then
living in His Grace to fulfill our promises to Him.

From Reverend Woodrow Walker, Senior Pastor…
The Believer’s Guide provides both the strategy and the structure for success in life and ministry. It will take you beyond mere wishful thinking to mapping out details to arrive at levels never imagined possible.
Once you can see a clear snapshot of the inner workings of your soul (mind, will, and emotions), the right adjustments can be made in prioritizing your life for your true work and mission.
I highly recommend it to every Christian leader that is serious about making a difference in steering this generation in the right direction.
— Woodrow Walker, Senior Pastor, Abundant Life Church ~ Lithonia, Georgia
From Reverend Tim McFadden…
Here is my blurb: “This book was a vehicle of revelation for me.”
That is so true. But there is much more…
I consider myself just an average guy, but if you put a blurb like that and say “Tim McFadden, Attorney and Doctoral Candidate in Theology, Oxford”, it might carry more weight—I mean if you want to add mine to whatever else you’ve got, which I won’t presume is worth it. But I do want to help!
I see you guys working in a sort of Proverbs of Solomon space, yes? It’s good practical wisdom about how things actually do work, regardless of how much noise one is making about “religion.”
There was that ancient Solomonic sense of Wisdom being the warp and woof of reality; and now we have the Logos of John 1 as the full revelation of this reality.
So I think it glorifies God (who meets us everywhere certainly in daily life: it says he cares about how the stones in the trader’s bags are weighted) as you just keep diligently, prayerfully pumping out true stuff about how life actually works.
It really has been part of an improvement in my life (though I backslide from time-to-time!) just by the presence of reality in your work, which seems to me grace from God — who, Incarnate, spent more years nailing, cutting and sanding than he did preaching.
Anyway, keep it going, E.R. Fight the good fight.
From Reverend Charles M. Taylor…
“You have ONE life to live. What would you do if you could live a life of significance and importance—starting right now? What if you could really achieve all that you desire… all that you were meant to do… all that you were destined to accomplish in THIS lifetime? Well, you can. Success on Purpose offers a step-by-step, systematic approach to living the life of your dreams. There’s nothing magical about it; it’s practicality will help you overcome all your resistance points you may have about success. E.R. and Kent have taken the principles of success—and the enrichment of our soul’s purpose—and organized them very clearly so that anyone who uses this system cannot help but attain a life of fulfillment. You WILL, as they say, become a Success On Purpose!”
From Dr. John Shelby, M.D…
“I have read virtually every book on passion, purpose and mission ever written. Success On Purpose is by far the best written, most practical and empowering book on BOTH success AND purpose I have ever read. It is the LAST book on the subject I will ever read. Thank you so much for creating it.”
— Dr. John
From Gabriele L. Grach, Executive Coach, EAPC…
“Through the creation of SUCCESS ON PURPOSE, you have not only given us a CLEAR understanding of how to create lasting hope by reconnecting us to our hearts, but also an effective and efficient systematic, sequential process for turning our dreams into a reality called LIFE—aka—’heaven on earth.’ You have produced a methodology for continuous creation, evaluation and expansion via the highest level of contribution possible, given our unique talents, skills, values, visions, empowering roles, and worthy missions.”
“The continued use, practice and exercise of the valuable principles and brilliant framework found in the metaphor of the Time Prism performance spectrum, enables us to tangibly choose and practice intentional excellence over intentional mediocrity, by identifying, choosing, developing, evaluating and applying the best behaviors, best patterns and best practices available to mankind. Thus High Expectations and Brilliant Execution results in seemingly no time at all. This is what doing, being and contributing our best at any given time and in the least amount of time necessary, is all about. Congratulations to you and the TQ TEAM.”
From Pastor Paul Early…
“When I finished reading Success On Purpose for the first time, I was astonished at how well (and how simply) you nailed the notion of Natural Mission and Authentic Direction!
We are all on a Mission as Rick Warren says. No question, we all have a Divine Purpose guiding our lives and the multiple Missions we take on in this one life we have to live.”
“I was a little taken back when I came across St. Teresa of Avila’s quote you used on page 62. It seemed out of place in a “success book” but it isn’t…”
“Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.” —St. Teresa of Avila
“I have seen this quote a hundred times before. It’s the inspiration behind Habitat for Humanity… “No Hands But Yours.”
But somehow, when I came across it as you were discussing how your Natural Mission forms when you “triangulate” your Visions, Values and Roles, it jumped out at me as if Christ was saying to me, “Pay attention Paul… I can’t change the world without YOU. I have given you a Purpose — would you PLEASE get on it!”
“If I am to do Christ’s WORK… to live my Mission in Him… I have no option but to, as you say “Perform On Purpose!”
“May God Bless You and Keep You in His Service.”
“Many thanks for a wonderful system.”
— Pastor Paul Early
From Tom Dodd, RFC Partners…
“Success On Purpose is among the top five things I wish I had when I was 21. Recently I found myself gravely injured, empty handed, almost literally with nothing but the clothes on my back, my dreams, and my values. Turning as soon as I was able to Success on Purpose, I find myself just six months later with a reinvented life. Each day is filled with hard work and commitment, but is exciting, guided by principles and values, some of which I discredited much of my life.”
“If TQ and Success on Purpose were a boat leaving a desert island, every other self-help book I’ve ever read might be usefully bound up for use only as ballast.”
“Success on Purpose is a masterpiece of living, working, growing and flourishing—with, through, and among people. Use this book; consume it as though your life depended upon it—because it does. It’s not about you; it’s about everyone you will ever meet or love. Then go stomp the terra!”
“In the field of personal development so many things can seem theoretical and abstract. It’s called “all that touchy-feely stuff”—or worse.”
“This is not the case with Success on Purpose.”
“If you are looking for an immediate and practical means to make changes in your life, in a relationship, in an organization or business, using the principles and exercises explained in Success on Purpose, you will not go wrong.”
“In fact, it will bring you a beacon light flooding the path before you enlightening you and whoever else is involved in your creation of change and achievement like nothing else.
You will know what you stand for, where you are going, who you must become to get there, and what it will take each day and week to get yourself there.”
“This is pure creation for true achievement.”
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
— Mike Bailey
From Lee Wise, Director Of Internships…
“Shortly before I received my copy of Success On Purpose from E.R., I was reflecting on my greatest enemies in terms of what one might term ‘success in Jesus.’ Two of the enemies I identified were lack of self-discipline and busyness.”
“Personally speaking, I believe that anyone who identifies with these ‘enemies’—regardless of their particular focus in life—will discover in Success on Purpose something extremely valuable: they will be given a practical, hands-on tool for identifying and capitalizing on their own major reasons for winning any challenge they may face in terms of their own self-development.”
“While I approach life from a faith-based background and don’t believe anything in print can replace an ongoing, intimate relationship with Jesus, I do consider Success On Purpose to be one of the finest resources available for assisting people in their pursuit of living a full and meaningful life.”
“Having served most of my life in one form or another in what might be termed a coaching capacity—including serving over twenty years as the Director of Internships in a seminary setting—I quite naturally gravitate to anything that provides people with concrete steps of action to help them become better persons. In fact, that’s one reason I ended up requiring my student interns to acquire and use The Power Of TQ as a part of their internship training and why I recommend Success On Purpose: simply put, it is filled with those concrete steps of action!”
“On a more personal note, I appreciate it when I can get to know a person well enough to sense their heartbeat regarding a particular endeavor, and I can say from my experience that E. R. Haas has reflected to me a consistent, passionate desire to help others discover their purpose and live a life of personal fulfillment.”
“Many thanks to E. R., Kent, and the entire Success On Purpose team for not only the privilege of working with you on this project in a small way but also for being a very positive influence to me personally, way before I was able to do so!”
— Lee Wise, Director of Internships Baptist Bible Seminary (1987-2009)
From Pastor Esther Chambers…
“One of my favorite sayings is, ‘Life is a journey not a destination.’ I love this quote because it challenges me to ask, ‘If life is a journey, where am I going?’
Will I choose to awaken motivated to follow a crystal-clear vision of my spiritual calling? Or, will I arise and allow life’s circumstances to control me like a dandelion seed caught in crosswinds?”
“How does one develop a crystal-clear vision of a spiritual calling or any calling, be it entrepreneurial, academic, or otherwise? Then, how does one move from a place of vision into action and follow-through?”
“ThinkTQ’s Success on Purpose is the best success-creation system I’ve ever come across. It is filled with more than just academic prose. It has easy-to-follow diagrams and methods which anyone can use to move from a place of confusion to a place of clarity, power, and execution.”
“ThinkTQ’s Success on Purpose is a compass, a toolbox, and a teacher presented in the form of a success book.
Success on Purpose empowers me daily to follow my dreams, but more importantly, using ThinkTQ’s success system, I combined three important roles in my life to guarantee that I will not only live MY best life… but to help others do so as well.”
Pastor Esther Chambers
From Annie Armen, Producer/Director…
“Here is how I can best describe ThinkTQ, Inc. ThinkTQ is like a treasure island. If you dig in deep enough, you will locate their global well rich in resources and nutrients for the human mind, heart, body, and soul. The beauty about the ThinkTQ Well is that it runs 24/7 for anyone and everyone who is thirsty for both ‘active’ and ‘PRO’active knowledge, and in need of exceptional, state-of-the-art resources as nutrients for bumping up expectations, and ‘executing brilliant results instantly,’ as my dear friend E. R. Haas always says.”
“I am a walking testament to you both after producing Legends in Excellenceï¿½, and walking proof of how Success on Purpose rolls! Thank you E. R. Haas and Kent Madson, not only for creating a starting point, but for scientifically proving where one must PRO-actively begin to apply your provided fountain of knowledge consistently over time, in order to achieve brilliant results!”
“Here’s the bottom line: Success on Purpose—MORE than a Book, MORE than a Success Map, MORE than a Directional Performance Guide—it is your Starting Point to your Mission on Demand™ now, it is your key to unlock the greatest doors of your life, of your destiny, to fulfill your legacy in Intentional Excellence! So don’t just read Success on Purpose, use it, turn it, open your success door, Expect More, Execute Better, and win, because you CAN!”
