Here's your chance to get mentally fit

Positive intelligence (PQ) is an amalgamation of recent breakthroughs in neuroscience, technology, cognitive and behavioral psychology and performance science. The results of this study have been validated by more than 500,000 participants in 50 countries. PQ is a measure of the strength of your POSITIVE mental muscles (let's call them the & #8220; Sage & #8221; part of your brain) versus your NEGATIVE (& #8220; Saboteurs & #8221;).

Saboteurs respond to stimuli in ways that generate negative emotions, such as worry, stress, disappointment, self-doubt, regret, shame, guilt, and anger.

By contrast, the Sage In contrast, part of your brain handles stimuli and challenges through positive emotions such as gratitude, curiosity, creativity, confidence, and calm, clear, laser-focused action.

The relative power of the positive Sage versus the negative Saboteurs is called PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient).

Mental Fitness is measured by your PQ score. PQ is an accurate predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform in relation to your full potential.

It PQ program significantly improves performance and productivity and helps you respond to challenging life situations with a calm, clear and happier mind and outlook on work and life.

How do you sabotage yourself

A key to mental fitness is to weaken the internal saboteurs who control all your & #8220; negativity & #8221; to generate. Your Saboteurs cause all your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, regret, shame, guilt and unhappiness. Saboteurs include The Judge, Controller, Avoidant, Victim, Perfectionist and 5 others.

Your & #8220; Sage & #8221; lives in a completely different part of your brain and handles challenges in a way that elicits positive emotions such as curiosity, empathy, creativity, calmness and a bright laser-focused action. You perform better and feel happier.

Breakthrough results of boosting PQ

Case studies, based on Shirzad's research, show that using our Sage powers instead of our Saboteurs results in:

  • Teams perform 31% better
  • People who report experiencing a 3 times happier and more creative life
  • Salespeople register a sales increase of 37%
  • People live 10 years longer

Performance: you perform better while working less hard & #8211; similar to athletes & #8220; in the & #8221; zone.
Happiness: You feel less stressed, more peace of mind, and constant happiness, even in difficult times.
Relationships: You improve relationships, are able to deal with conflict in a way that deepens trust and harmony.

Three core muscles of mental fitness

Three core muscles shape your mental fitness:

Sage Power
Selfcommand muscle
Saboteur. intercepting muscle

Your Saboteurs arouse all your negative emotionsincluding stress, anxiety, self-doubt, anger, avoidance, procrastination, insensitivity, or dissatisfaction. Mental fitness requires the ability to intercept and discredit the Saboteurs. Most participants find that their Saboteur is much more common and harmful than they suspected. Door deze spier te versterken kan je stress, angst en alles wat daarmee samenhangt overwinnen

Strengthen your Sage powers.

Your Sage is the one in you who tackles challenges with a clear and calm mind and positive emotions. Sage also has access to your 5 primary powers. After intercepting your saboteurs, it is now time to reinforce your Sage. Your Sage Power lives in a completely different part of your brain. For top performance you learn to boost all 5 strengths: empathy, discovery, innovation, navigation and activation.

Improve your "self-control" muscle.

You don't completely control your mind. If you could, you would choose to silence the Saboteurs in your head. You would choose not to stress over what you cannot control, push away doubts about yourself, recover immediately from disappointments, and spend little time in anger, regret, or guilt. PQ Reps are innovative 10 second exercises that build this crucial Self-Control muscle in the brain. Zelfbeheersing is de sleutel tot het onderscheppen van onbehulpzame nutteloze mentale gewoonten zodat je  effectiever kan reageren. Met “PQ Reps” krijg je jezelf weer onder controle!
