Positive Intelligence

6 Weeks of Inspired Practice

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.   


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.

Measuring Mental Fitness (PQ)

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, or 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 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.


Breakthrough Research

PQ is a synthesis of recent breakthroughs in neuroscience, cognitive and positive psychology, and performance science. 


Research included: 

  • hundreds of CEOs

  • sales, operations, and technology teams

  • Stanford students

  • elite athletes

  • 400,000 participants from 50 countries


This research was summarized in Shirzad Chamine's book Positive Intelligence, a New York Times bestseller, translated into 20 languages.  


The research reveals that:

  • Saboteurs and Sage live in entirely different regions of the brain.

  • You can cause a dramatic shift in brain activation to weaken Saboteurs and boost Sage.

  • 3 core muscles constitute mental fitness.


3 Core Muscles of Mental Fitness

1. Saboteurs Interceptor Muscle


  • Your Saboteurs generate all your negative emotions, including stress, anxiety, self-doubt, anger, avoidance, procrastination, insensitivity or discontent. Mental fitness requires the ability to intercept and discredit the Saboteurs.

2. Sage Muscle


  • Your Sage is the one in you that handles challenges with a clear and calm mind, and positive emotions.   It also has access to your 5 primary powers. 

  • All you need to paint any canvas is 3 primary colors.  Similarly, through factor analysis research we’ve discovered that there are only 5 primary powers: Empathize, Explore, Innovate, Navigate, and Activate.

  • For peak performance, you learn to boost all 5 powers and know when to use which power.

3. Self-Command Muscle


  • You’re not in full command of your mind.  If you were, you would choose to entirely silence the Saboteurs in your head.  You would choose to not stress out over what you can’t control, push away self-doubts, recover from disappointments immediately, and spend little time in anger, regret, or blame.

PQ Reps  are innovative 10-second exercises which build up this crucial Self-Command muscle in the brain. You learn to run your brain, rather than allow your Saboteur-hijacked brain to run you.
