What is Mental Fitness?

Train your brain with the proven 7-week program

Mental Fitness is the X-Factor

If you’re not physically fit, you’d feel physical stress as you climb up 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. 


80% of people score below the minimum level of mental fitness required for peak performance and happiness. 


The great news? With recent breakthroughs in neuroscience and technology, you can now improve your mental fitness significantly within 6 weeks of practice. 

The results?

Dramatically improved performance and productivity and a calm, clear and happier mind.



Improve your mental fitness and positive intelligence


PQ level has been to shown to correlate directly with overall happiness levels and performance relative to your potential.

Imagine being able to:


  • Have courage and confidence during interviews and while networking

  • Get paid what you’re worth and significantly increase your total compensation

  • Find a company that aligns with your personal and professional values

  • Achieve the work/life harmony you’ve always wanted

“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 potential you actually achieve.”

Mental fitness is a measure of the strength of your positive mental muscles (Sage) versus the negative (Saboteur).

Saboteurs react to challenges in ways that generate negative emotions such as:

  • stress

  • disappointment

  • self-doubt

  • regret

  • anger

  • shame

  • guilt

  • worry

Your Sage handles challenges through positive emotions like:


  • empathy

  • gratitude

  • curiosity

  • creativity

  • self-confidence


... and calm, clear-headed laser-focused action. 

The relative strength of your positive Sage versus your negative Saboteurs is called PQ (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. 


You can boost your PQ significantly with practice. 

You learn to run your brain, rather than allow your saboteur-hijacked brain to run you.

Six to eight weeks of mental fitness will allow you to be happier and more productive at work and at home.

Mental fitness and positive intelligence result outcomes include:

  • Salespeople with higher PQ sell 37 percent more than their lower-PQ counterparts

  • Negotiators with higher PQ are more likely to gain concessions, close deals, and forge important future business relationships as part of the contracts they negotiate

  • PQ is consistently the greatest predictor of a team’s achievement



Week 1: Boost Your Self-Command Muscle

​The first week you learn innovative 10-second PQ Reps that boost your self-command. This enables you to run your brain rather than being run by your Saboteur-hijacked brain. Self-command is key to intercepting unhelpful mental habits and rewiring your brain to respond more effectively. ​

  • Try out and discover PQ Reps that are most effective for you.
  • Reach the minimum target for PQ Reps/day to achieve rewiring goal within 6 weeks.
  • Use the app's breakthrough PQ Charge Meter to ensure optimal brain activation before important activities.
  • Declare an audacious aspiration--what you want to achieve through this program.

Week 2: Intercept the Judge Saboteur

​For this entire week, you'll intercept and weaken the most damaging Saboteur, the Judge. You discover how judging yourself, others, and circumstances is a key source of your stress and quite damaging to your performance. Most participants discover their Judge to be far more prevalent and damaging than they suspected.

  • ​Expose your Judge's hidden lies, limiting beliefs, and negative patterns.
  • Reveal your Judge's impact on performance, relationships, and stress.
  • Practice intercepting your Judge before it hijacks you.
  • Rewire your negative neural pathways by redirecting the Judge response.

Week 3: Intercept your Accomplice Saboteurs

​This week you intercept and weaken the top accomplice to your Judge Saboteur, identified through the Saboteur Assessment from the following: Avoider, Controller, Hyper-Achiever, Hyper-Rational, Hyper-Vigilant, Pleaser, Restless, Stickler, Victim.

  • ​Expose your accomplice Saboteur's hidden lies, limiting beliefs and negative patterns.
  • Reveal this Saboteur's impact on performance, relationships, and stress.
  • Discover how to quickly intercept this Saboteur before it hijacks you.
  • Rewire your negative neural pathways by redirecting this Saboteur's response.

Week 4: Shift From Saboteur to Sage

After weakening your Saboteurs, it is now time to strengthen your Sage, the counterpart to your Saboteurs. Your Sage lives in an entirely different part of your brain, generates all your positive emotions, and achieves peak performance through a calm and clear mind.

  • ​Practice the Sage Perspective that every outcome or circumstance can be turned into a gift and opportunity.
  • Use the 3 Gifts Technique to find the opportunity in setbacks.
  • Replace draining self-judgment with energizing self-acceptance and empathy.
  • Boost speed of recovery from failures and setbacks.

Week 5: Boost the Sage Powers

The Sage region of the brain enables 5 primary powers. Analogous to the 3 primary colors, these 5 powers recombine to form all of the emotional intelligence competencies considered crucial to professional success.

  • ​Augment your mental toolbox with 5 Sage powers.
  • Practice 3 techniques to activate each power.
  • Know when to use which power--right tool at the right time.
  • Boost emotional intelligence through combinations of the 5 primary powers.

Week 6: Take Clear-Headed, Laser-Focused Action

​In our final week, you use your Sage's Navigate and Activate powers to take clear-headed, laser-focused, decisive action.

  • ​Use your Sage's Navigate power to align your actions with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose.
  • Use your Sage's Activate power to act without fear or emotional distractions even in midst of great crises.
  • Discover your Sage's deep wisdom, far surpassing your analytical intelligence.
  • Discover how your Sage generates your highest performance while enjoying every step--"in the zone."
