Welcome to the new YOU
Mental Fitness is essential for both Performance & Happiness
If you’re physically fit, you can walk, jog, run, lift weights, play sports, play with your children, all without physical stress.
If you’re mentally fit, you can handle life’s inevitable challenges (big and small) without mental stress and negative emotions.
You will be happier and you will perform better.
Because 80% of people score below the level they need to perform at their best at work, at home, in relationships (in fact everywhere) – so what can you do?
Measuring Your Mental Fitness
Mental fitness is a measure of the strength of your positive mental muscles (Sage) versus the negative muscles (Saboteur).
This measure of your Mental Fitness is called PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient). This is very similar to EQ (Emotional Intelligence). The amazing Shirzad Chamine developed this program and he explains more in this Ted Talk.
Research with 500,000 participants has shown your PQ score to be the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential.
Do you want to know your PQ score now?
Independent research has validated this measure to be the greatest predictor of how happy you are, and how well you perform against your potential.
And the great news is that you can improve your PQ score easily with daily practice. If you use a muscle often, it gets stronger and this is true of your brain too. So, creating new neural pathways (proven by MRI scans of people who have completed this 6 week program) happens when the brain is used in certain and specific ways.
Boost Your PQ
You can significantly increase your Mental Fitness and PQ Score in six weeks of daily practice. This only takes about 15 minutes per day of exercising the 3 core muscles of mental fitness.
1. Saboteur Interceptor Muscle
Learn to expose and intercept your top Saboteurs. Saboteurs are the voices in your head that generate negative emotions in the way they handle life’s challenges. They sabotage both your happiness and performance.
2. Sage Muscle
Learn to boost your Sage. Your Sage lives in an entirely different region of your brain and generates positive emotions while handling life’s challenges. Your greatest happiness and performance are generated through your Sage.
3. Self-Command Muscle
Boost your ability to command your mind to quiet the Saboteur region and amplify the Sage region. PQ Reps are 10-second exercises that boost this critical self-command muscle.
What can I expect from the program and how much time will I need?
In total you will need about 2 hours per week. 1 hour of this is watching a video, 30 minutes for a Zoom meet up and the rest is used for your daily practice – which is only 2 minutes at a time (3 times per day at times that suit you) – you can set these in the PI phone app that is available for both Android and Apple phones and is available for you for a year within the program price.
Weekly 1-hour Video Sessions
In these highly engaging sessions, Shirzad guides you through experiential exercises that deepen and personalize your understanding of the mental fitness tools. You leave inspired and energised for the week’s daily practices.
Exclusive App Guiding Your Daily Practice
Each day a different focus for practice is assigned through a personalised companion app available exclusively to program participants.
This builds one small muscle at a time, laying down new neural pathways to form lasting positive habits of your mind. The cumulative impact by program’s end is substantial.
Interactive PQ Gym
Innovative 10-second PQ Reps build up your Self-Command muscle. You learn to be clear-headed and calm even in the midst of great challenges, able to command your mind to shift from Saboteur to Sage response.
Daily Progress Tracking
The app tracks your daily progress against minimum targets associated with new neural pathway (muscle) formation. Personalized daily coaching tips from Shirzad continue to both encourage and challenge you to keep going.
Weekly POD Community on Zoom with me – John Rice
I will be an active member of your pod group. This is set up for you at the start of your 6 week program. It is a place to support other members of your pod (I set a maximum of 5 people). I am there to support you and answer your questions. Participants report the online pod to be key to sustaining their enthusiasm for daily practice.
So tell me about the results
The success, method and the results are scientifically proven.
Within 6-8 weeks of mental fitness training you’d be able to see the results in MRI imaging:
- Increased grey matter in the PQ Brain region, where your Sage lives
- Decreased grey matter in the Survivor Brain region, where your Saboteurs live
Improvements in these competencies lead to substantial results:
- At MetLife, trained salespeople outsold the control group by 37%
- Motorola recorded improved productivity in 93% of trained employees
- In a UK restaurant group, higher competency resulted in 34% greater profit growth
- Sanofi-Aventis Pharmaceutical, the average salesperson with improved competency sold $55,200 more per month
- L’Oréal – strength in these competencies resulted in $91,370 increase per sales person
- CIBC – strength in these competencies account for 32% of booked sales and 71% of pipeline sales
But possibly the most important and amazing results are felt by individuals, expressing their amazement at how such a simple daily practice can literally change their lives. Happier, more mentally resilient and able to easily cope with the inevitable problems both big and small that come our way. All relationships are improved.

But I’ve tried stuff like this before and it didn’t work or last
PQ Program vs. Traditional Training
Traditional training and development tends to have short-lived impact for 3 reasons:
- Focus on insight rather than muscle. For example, the insight that being frustrated isn’t helpful and doesn’t automatically lead to you not feeling frustrated. That would require mental muscles to shift brain activation.
- Treating symptoms rather than cause. For example, teaching you techniques of active listening to improve empathy will have temporary impact if your deeply-seated Judge Saboteur is not exposed and intercepted.
- No common operating system. Since each training you attend uses a different framework—the 7 steps of managing conflict, the 5 secrets of managing time, etc.–the frameworks compete for mindshare and all fade away.
Through extensive factor analysis research, PQ has identified the 10 root-level negative factors (Saboteurs) and the 5 primary powers (Sage). This enables a common operating system.
All personal and professional development become applications of the PQ operating system. Whether learning to manage conflicts, manage time, or perform better under pressure, you’d apply the same exact operating system:
- Intercept Saboteurs
- Issue Self-Command (through 10-second PQ Reps)
- Mobilise Sage (Empathise, Explore, Innovate, Navigate, Activate)
You’d be using one simple framework for a variety of applications, boosting root-level mental fitness.
This dramatically simplifies personal and professional development.
What else can I expect after the 6 weeks?
You will continue to have access to the App for a further 46 weeks to keep building your mental muscles. This will take you only 15 minutes a day.
When you continue you can expect shifts and improvements in some or all of the following emotional intelligence competencies:
Due to the power of factor analysis, the PQ Program boosts the root-level building blocks that automatically boost all 18 Emotional Intelligence competencies
