Learn to Boost Your Mental Fitness (PQ)

Mental Fitness is the X-Factor

If you’re not physically fit, you’d feel physical stress as you climb a steep hill. If you’re not mentally fit, you’d feel mental stress, such as anxiety, frustration, or unhappiness, as you handle work and relationship challenges. 

Recent events such as the coronavirus, disruption in the financial markets, social unrest, and healthcare changes have over-stretched you and your clients, colleagues and family. 

To not just survive, but thrive, in these tumultuous times you need a new upgrade in your mental operating system! 

PQ: Your Positive Intelligence Quotient

PQ is the measure of your Mental Fitness. It’s the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential. 

 PQ = Time your brain acts as an ally (Sage) versus an enemy (Saboteur)

Good News! You can boost your PQ significantly with practice. PQ is a synthesis of recent breakthroughs in neuroscience, cognitive and positive psychology, and performance science.

Is your mind serving as your friend or foe?

You have the power to unleash your mind's potential.

“Your potential is determined by many factors, including your cognitive intelligence (IQ), your emotional intelligence (EQ), and your skills, knowledge, experience, and social network. But it is your Positive Intelligence (PQ) that determines what percentage of your vast potential you actually achieve.”

-Shirzad Chamine  

Stanford Lecturer, CEO Coach

Generates Positive Emotions

burned out stressed out OTs PTs SLPs

If you tend to listen to any of these Saboteurs…

The Judge…and often feel like you aren’t good enough or others don’t meet your standard or feel that if only the circumstances were different, then you would be happy.

The Controller…and think that you can fix everything and control situations and people, leading you to burn out.

The Hyper-Achiever…and find your worth is wrapped up in how you perform and what you achieve vs who you areas a person.

The Hyper-Rational…and believe everything can be solved by using data and that emotions are less important, which ultimately damages your relationships.

The Hyper-Vigilant…and tend to wait for the other shoe to drop and avoid opportunities because of fear.

The Pleaser…and want to gain acceptance or approval by saying, “yes” often and later regretting it and feeling resentful.

The Restless…and constantly search for the next exciting thing and suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out).

The Stickler…and tend to be perfectionist, often put order & organization above relationships.

The Victim…and often brood over negative emotions or events for a long period of time and may often ask, “Why me?”

Then investing in mental fitness is a great next step!

The PQ operating system provides 3 simple strategies to win this battle.


Imagine a life & career rooted in positive emotions and motivated by sage powers!

You may be thinking, “Maybe I should wait.”

If you choose to do so, that is totally your prerogative. But before you write this opportunity off, let’s consider your future. 

First, let’s consider if you continue doing what you are doing…where will you be in 5 years? Yep, probably not in a much different place.

But what if you take this leap of faith and commit to the videos, cohort meeting and app exercises, what could your life look like in 5 years? What could it look like if you were able to conquer your saboteurs and live primarily in sage mode? How would it affect your work and personal life?

Imagine the possibilities!

Mental Fitness is a beautiful thing.

Positive Intelligence book

“New York Times Bestseller!   In his popular Stanford University lectures, Shirzad Chamine reveals how to achieve one’s true potential for both professional success and personal fulfillment. His groundbreaking research exposes ten well-disguised mental Saboteurs. Nearly 95 percent of the executives in his Stanford lectures conclude that these Saboteurs cause “significant harm” to achieving their full potential. With Positive Intelligence, you can learn the secret to defeating these internal foes.”

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:2
