Make a commitment to find out more about how YOU can boost your mental fitness today!
Prior to attending the webinar, please use the link below to discover your Saboteurs. This will prepare you for the information we will share on the webinar.
“It’s a scientific fact that the hormones of stress downregulate genes and create disease, long-term effects. Human beings, because of the size of the neocortex, can turn on the stress response, just by thought alone. We think about our problems and turn on those chemicals. That means that our thoughts can make us sick. So, if our thoughts can make us sick, then is it possible that our thoughts can make us well? The answer is, absolutely yes!”
– Dr. Joe Dispenza
“The reason we are feeling pretty stressed and upset about things these days is because we are not mentally fit enough to handle the current challenges of life.”
– Shirzad Chamine
For many years we have linked happiness to a goal. “I’ll be happy when…” And often we get spurts of it when we receive a compliment, accomplish something, get good news, etc. At the end of the day, when we sit down and reflect, many of us do not feel happy, or entirely happy, as some may respond. Happiness is linked to to external circumstances, and very often out of our control. Joy, on the other hand, is an attitude that defies circumstances. We do not depend on external queues to have us feel joy. It is an internal sense of being that just is, and is quite challenging to describe. The cool thing about joy is that we are able to train our mind to get there. We do not need anything or anyone to achieve joy. It is all about the self-command of our mind versus allowing sabotaging thoughts to interfere.
Imagine yourself able to remain calm, clear-headed, stress-free, and positive, even in the midst of handling today’s greatest challenges. Mental fitness is the foundational piece to mental well-being and ultimate joy.
Shifting overwhelm, compassion fatigue, negative thoughts, and mental burnout is only possible when you understand how to deal with sabotaging thoughts and build the mental muscles of positivity. The scientific research and findings of PQ (Positive Intelligence), has confirmed that we must first build the foundational muscles. This is the path to joy and it truly is simple.
Positive Intelligence and Alive in Healthcare have come together to bring Nurses, whether front-line, managers, or in any other role, an opportunity to learn the proven science behind building grey matter in your brain, where it matters, and reducing it where it sabotages us.
The breakthrough contribution of Positive Intelligence research is through factor analysis to discover the core factors that impact both performance and wellbeing. This research revealed that there are only 10 negative response factors (10 Saboteurs) and only 5 positive response factors (5 Sage powers).
Discovering these root-level factors of performance and wellbeing dramatically simplifies personal and professional development. Intercepting one’s Saboteur and activating one’s Sage automatically results in a wide array of impacts including stress management, relationship improvement, performance, selling and persuasion, creativity, leadership, resilience, and happiness.
This is because we are rewiring the brain at the root level rather than treating symptoms.
You have two very different regions in your brain.
Recent advances in functional MRI (fMRI), which measures how neural activity changes blood flow, have allowed scientists and psychologists to witness the real-time working of the brain for the very first time.
We are now able to pinpoint the regions of the brain involved in producing different thoughts or feelings and identify the neural functions involved with the activation of Saboteurs and the Sage.
The Thrive Region:
Your Inner Sage
Your Sage lives in an entirely different region of your brain, the middle prefrontal cortex, “empathy circuitry”, and parts of the right brain. It generates positive emotions while handling life’s challenges. These include empathy, compassion, gratitude, curiosity, joy of creativity, and calm, clear-headed laser-focused action. This region is wired for creativity and big picture awareness of what is important and the best course of action.
Activating this region results in release of endorphins that counter the negative impacts of stress-induced cortisol.
The Survive Region:
Your Inner Saboteurs
Saboteurs are the voices in your head that generate negative emotions when you handle life’s challenges. They exist in the brainstem, limbic system, and parts of the left brain. They produce much of your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, anger, shame, guilt, frustration, and mind chatter. These negative emotions are only helpful for a second as they alert you to dangers or issues. However, staying in these emotions hurts your ability to see clearly and choose the most impactful response.
The Key to Shifting the Balance of Power
Your brain is made up of neurons. When a signal travels down a neuron, it results in activation of other neurons based on synapses that connect neurons. But there are multiple choices for which direction the signal would travel. The question is which neuron will be activated. Every time a neuron activates another neuron, they become more closely wired together, making it more likely that the signal will go in that direction the next time around. This constitutes a “neural pathway.”
This is how a repeated action becomes an automatic habit. In Positive Intelligence, we use the powerful 10-second PQ Rep technique as a way of intercepting the old Saboteur responses, so we can pause and choose a new Sage response. Repetition results in Sage neural pathways (muscles) to counter the old Saboteur muscles. That is why our training results in sustained change, as opposed to results fading over time. Mental fitness is about building mental muscles and not just stopping at insights.
Building New Neural Pathways
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.
Saboteur 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.
Boost your ability to command your mind to quiet the Saboteur region and amplify the Sage region. Using simple daily exercises, you 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. Your Sage accesses 5 positive powers. For peak performance, you learn to boost all 5 powers and know when to use which power.
Validated by 500,000+ Participants
Our program is based on research with more than 500,000 participants from 50 countries, including CEOs, students, elite athletes, and sales, operations, and technology teams
Measure Your Mental Fitness
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 our PQ Score assessment to discover how often your mind is serving you versus sabotaging you.
