What is the PURPOSE of this great country we call AMERICA? How do our individual Values, Visions and Roles triangulate into a mission that gives our collective purpose true meaning and significance?
Purpose is the definitive statement of the difference one is trying to make in the world. Ultimately, it is your fundamental calling to make the world different, not to just make a slight difference.
To paraphrase Aristotle, where your talents and the needs of the world cross, there lies your purpose.
When we were creating The Power of TQ and 10 Choices of Intentional Excellence, we asked a simple question, “Why do some people succeed brilliantly, where others fail dismally?”
The correct answer, supported by millions of data points, is that people who succeed EXPECT to succeed, where failures fail, simply because they do not EXPECT to succeed in the first place.
Theodore Levitt, Publisher of the Harvard Business Review and numerous books on marketing and business management, observed that there are 2 key ingredients to world changing success: Innovation and Marketing.
Both are driven by your imagination and an unshakeable belief in what is possible.
So much of our lives revolve around people with outstanding vision. The founders of Apple, Amazon, Starbucks, Google, Facebook and Twitter immediately come to mind as men and woman who built companies who changed the very fabric of the future. Who would have ever thought that Bill Gate’s vision of “making the PC more important than the mainframe…” or Larry Page’s vision of “indexing all the knowledge…
Our prime Mission at TQ… every waking moment… every thought we think… every product or service we develop… is designed to make it easier for ordinary people to produce extraordinary results over time.
With hundreds of millions of data points, we have found that the vast majority of people find themselves locked in a constant battle between success and survival.
Charles Darwin opined that “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”
You know that the global economy teeters on a precipice — both candidates for US President agree that big changes are needed and coming…
Have you ever wondered why some people achieve success beyond their wildest hopes, dreams and expectations… while others struggle just to make it from payday to payday? Have you ever wondered why some people make a fortune in their businesses—truly capitalizing on their talents, strengths and interests—while others go through their life savings, staying just one step ahead of the bankruptcy courts?
I know this sounds like a hopelessly over-hyped offer, but this is what we do here every day!
As you have come to know, TQ measures how smart you take action — the true measurement of your success potential.
Essentially, we measure what you do against what the most successful people in the world actually DO.
It stands to reason that if you make the same smart choices, and take the same smart actions as highly successful people, then you too will enjoy high achievement.
The Young Vs. The Old — Possibility Vs. Probability Thinking…
When we are young, first starting out, we ignore all the rules, dangers, doomsayers and think with one of the most powerful words in the English language: POSSIBILITIES.
We look for OPPORTUNITY regardless of the risks. We judge the road ahead by where it might lead, versus the certainty of a well-established, known destination.
Clearly, we are far more likely to pursue the road less traveled.
Somewhere along the road, we start to become weary of the forks, twists, and turns. We start to think more of the destination rather than the journey.
It’s the end of the first quarter…
Are you exactly where you want to be 3 months into 2016?
Achieving stretch goals?
Your family lives on the RESULTS you produce…
So many of us just keep our shoulder to the wheel and never even consider there might be a better way to achieve the results we want. Need. Desire. We just accept what we get, and tell ourselves that that’s the best we can do.
But, what if you can do so much better? What if you could double, triple, even increase your results 10-20-100 times?!
Today is a GREAT day! You can truly prosper.
All it takes is a single WORD.
You can rise above your circumstances and find the path to your future. Yes, YOU can do it.
All it takes is a single WORD.
I believe in YOU. I know, from personal experience, that you have incredible untapped potential. YOU can release it into the world.
All it takes is a single WORD.
The undeniable truth is that there are just 3 variables — all within your control — that determine if you will live the life of your dreams… or not. Fill these variables in and you will become the master of your own destiny. Your life will have meaning and purpose… a glow of happiness and conviction that will enlighten your path.
Fail to understand the importance of these 3 variables to your life, and your life will be much harder… more uncertain… and much more limited than it needs to be.
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.
From Miss Universe… to the World Cup… to Tennis… to Golf… to the Olympics… the NFL and NBA or the NHA, this is the prevailing attitude: TRAIN to REIGN. It is very serious business. If you want to be at, or near the top of the field, you simply MUST create an ongoing training mentality.
Millions are at stake. Your credibility is at stake. Your future is at stake. Do this, you WIN.
What is DESTINY? The dictionary defines it as fate, providence; predestination; God’s will, kismet, the stars; luck, fortune, chance, karma, serendipity.
Most of us believe that it requires the INTENTIONAL commitment to EXCELLENCE and the total rejection of MEDIOCRITY to achieve our destiny — our ultimate calling in life.
As William Jennings Bryan said…
Just to repeat the age-old quote by Aristotle, “Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
Are You A Visionary?
To SEE what is invisible to others is the key aspect of being a visionary.
Our vision is huge and world-changing… and I hope you share it: Turn 2.5 billion Smartphones into the greatest training system ever envisioned… making the world SMARTER and SAFER.
The vision is to take 5,000 years of the best ideas… from the best minds who ever lived, now and then… off the shelf and inject them directly into your brain — in 10-second blasts all day long.
