Combining weekly video sessions and an exclusive app, you are guided step-by-step over a six-week period to boost the 3 core muscles of mental fitness:
1. Saboteur Interceptor Muscle
2. Self-Command Muscle
3. Sage Muscle
Mental Fitness is your capacity to respond to life’s challenges with a positive rather than negative mindset. The positive impact of building up your mental fitness is felt in three areas:
Mental Fitness is the X-Factor in Performance & Happiness
If you are physically fit, you can climb steep hills without physical stress.
If you are mentally fit, you can handle life’s great challenges without mental stress
or negative emotions.
You’ll be happier and perform better.
15 minutes/day of app-guided practice enables you to establish mental muscles (neural pathways). These exercises are bite-sized to fit your busy schedule and customized based on how you self-sabotage.
Weekly hour-long video delivers deep experiential exploration of the week’s focus. You’ll feel inspired and energized to practice during the week in order to sustain the benefits experienced during the video sessions.
You’ll feel motivated through instant feedback on exactly how much progress you’re making towards building the 3 core muscles of mental fitness. Brain rewiring may be visible in MRI imaging within 8 weeks.
We help you establish a support and accountability group with other program participants. Research has shown this to be a critical success factor for establishing lasting new positive habits of the mind.
You get to build a foundation of mental fitness by strengthening three critical mental muscles to shift the balance of power from your inner Saboteurs (your negative self) to your inner Sage (your positive self).
Through a breakthrough process called PQ Reps, you get to boost your Self-Command muscle. Each PQ Rep only takes 10 seconds and can be done with eyes open or closed. With each PQ Rep, you develop greater mastery over your own mind, quiet the negative, and activate the positive region of your brain.
You get to intercept your top Saboteurs the moment they try to hijack your thoughts, feelings, and actions. In preparation for this practice, you get to expose the lies, limiting beliefs and damage of your Saboteurs, so they can no longer fool you into thinking they are helpful to you.
You get to practice the Sage Perspective that every problem or challenge can be converted into a gift and opportunity. And you get to generate the gift through the 5 Sage Powers of Empathize, Explore, Innovate, Navigate, and Activate.
Positive Intelligence® is giving every participant of the 6-week program 2 free weeks of Grow so that you have an opportunity to experience the slower pace and ability to customize their Grow experience.

Your mind is your best friend. But it can also be your worst enemy.
Your mind is constantly sabotaging your potential for both performance and happiness. All your negative emotions, including stress, are the result of self-sabotage.
Through research-based tools, strengthen the part of your brain that serves you and quiet down the part that sabotages you. You will be able to handle life’s challenges with a more positive mindset, and less stress.
Your PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient, or Positivity Quotient for short) measures the relative strength of your positive versus negative mental muscles. PQ is the measure of your mental fitness.
Take the PQ Score assessment to discover how often your mind is serving you versus sabotaging you.
Saboteurs are the voices in your head that generate negative emotions in the way you handle life’s everyday challenges. They represent automated patterns in your mind for how to think, feel, and respond. They cause all of your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, restlessness, and unhappiness. They sabotage your performance, wellbeing, and relationships.
Take the Saboteur Assessment to discover how often your mind is serving you versus sabotaging you.
The Judge is the universal Saboteur that afflicts everyone. It is the one that beats you up repeatedly over mistakes or shortcomings, warns you obsessively about future risks, wakes you up in the middle of the night worrying, gets you fixated on what is wrong with others or your life, etc. Your Judge activates your other Saboteurs, causes much of your stress and unhappiness, reduces your effectiveness, and harms your relationships.
The Judge works with one or more Accomplice Saboteurs to hijack your mind and cause most of your setbacks. Do any of these seem familiar to you?
Focusing on the positive and pleasant in an extreme way. Avoiding difficult and unpleasant tasks and conflicts.
Anxiety-based need to take charge and control situations and people’s actions to one’s own will. High anxiety and impatience when that is not possible.
Dependent on constant performance and achievement for self-respect and self-validation. Latest achievement quickly discounted, needing more.
Intense and exclusive focus on the rational processing of everything, including relationships. Can be perceived as uncaring, unfeeling, or intellectually arrogant.
Continuous intense anxiety about all the dangers and what could go wrong. Vigilance that can never rest.
Indirectly tries to gain acceptance and affection by helping, pleasing, rescuing, or flattering others. Loses sight of own needs and becomes resentful as a result.
Restless, constantly in search of greater excitement in the next activity or constant busyness. Rarely at peace or content with the current activity.
Perfectionism and a need for order and organization taken too far. Anxious trying to make too many things perfect.
Emotional and temperamental as a way to gain attention and affection. An extreme focus on internal feelings, particularly painful ones. Martyr streak.
Mental fitness is your ability to manage life experiences while maintaining a positive rather then negative mindset.
Mental Fitness is increased when new mental muscles are strengthened through positive habits. Our program focuses on growing three specific mental muscles, which become visible as new neural pathways in MRI imaging within 8 weeks of practice.
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.
Boost your ability to command your mind to quiet the Saboteur region and amplify the Sage region. Using simple daily exercises, you will learn to run your brain, rather than allow your Saboteur-hijacked brain to run you.
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. For peak performance, you learn to boost all 5 powers and know when to use which power.
Most teams work too hard, experience too much conflict, friction and stress, and vastly underachieve their potential. This is because every team member is unknowingly sabotaging both their own and their team’s performance and wellbeing. We’ll enable your teams to maximize both performance and wellbeing simultaneously by focusing on the root-level mental muscles that impact both.
Each team member is inspired to grow in meaningful and lasting ways, to help teammates do the same, and to positively impact others.
Team becomes a safe place for people to be transparent and authentic, admit to mistakes and shortcomings, and feel supported and cared for by one another.
Team members embrace conflict as a gift. Members learn to be upfront and direct in challenging each other as a way of arriving at best solutions and helping each other grow.
Team members hold each other accountable for both results and conduct, as opposed to waiting for the team leader to do so.
