Master Your Mind, Master Your Life
Positive Intelligence is the science and practice of developing mastery over your own mind so you can reach your full potential for both happiness and success.
Measuring Mental Fitness
Mental fitness is a measure of the strength of your positive mental muscles (Sage) versus the negative (Saboteur).
This measure of your Mental Fitness is called PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient).
Research with 400,000 participants has shown PQ to be the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential.
Positive Intelligence is based on Shirzad Chamine’s New York Times bestselling book, Stanford lectures, and breakthrough research work with hundreds of CEOs and their executive teams.
With greater mastery over your own mind, you can tackle your greatest challenges with calm, clarity, creativity, and laser focused action.
Take command of your mind, so you can activate it’s vastly unused powers to reach your untapped potential.
This work is a synthesis of the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience, cognitive and positive psychology, and performance science.
The research is the basis of Shirzad Chamine’s New York Times bestselling book Positive Intelligence, and Stanford lectures.
How You Self Sabotage
A key to Mental Fitness is to weaken the internal Saboteurs who generate all your “negativity” in the way they respond to challenges. Your Saboteurs cause all your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, regret, shame, guilt, and unhappiness. Saboteurs include the Judge, Controller, Avoider, Victim, Stickler and 5 others.
Your “Sage” lives in an entirely different region of your brain and handles challenges in ways that produce positive emotions like curiosity, empathy, creativity, calm, and clear-headed laser-focused action. You’d perform better and feel happier.
How You Self Sabotage
Saboteurs are your invisible agents of self-sabotage. They represent your brain’s automatic mental habits with limiting beliefs and assumptions about how to handle life’s challenges. They include the Judge, Controller, Avoider, Victim, Stickler and 5 others.
Your Saboteurs cause all your stress, unhappiness and negative feelings. You can learn to meet your challenges by activating a different voice and region of your brain that performs far better while producing positive feelings like curiosity, empathy, creativity, and peace, with a laser focus on action.
