Family Social Background Predictive Success Score

Below is a table of your Family and Social Background Predictive Success Score, which is calculated based on your answers to questions on the Pre-Test Survey.

This score, in effect, attempts to estimate the advantages or "head start" you were given in life by your home and culture. Were your family and culture success oriented? Were you given a variety of encouragements and inspirational events as an impressionable child?. Were you personally well-tutored by your family and extended family? If your score is high here you were given advantages that most people are not given. If your score is low here, your fate is still in your hands by your own independent efforts. Your real "Success Quotient (SQ)" score is given in the next table. Every score on every table is to some degree under your control.

Family Social Background Predictive Success Score  Possible Points  % Score
 124  240  52%

Here are three of the fastest ways to raise your Family Social Background Predictive Success Score:

  1. Reconcile yourself to your parents and siblings. You must deepen your love for them. For example, face to face, eye to eye, privately, by appointment, say to your father, "Dad (pause), I love you! Here are my complaints about your actions." [Long pause. Silence.] Rehearse this scene before you enact it. Be frank, be bold.
  2. Reconcile yourself to the Creator of the Universe. Become an independent "seeker of the Truth". Listen to what all the major philosophies and religions have to say and commit yourself to improving the universe. Acknowledge that you were endowed with the power to do so.
  3. Associate with "winners". Avoid too much time with "losers". Go where the winners are. Success is infectious (as is failure).

Achievement Drive (Success Drive)


"If it can be measured, it can be improved". David McClelland at Harvard taught us how to measure this drive, otherwise known as ambition. One way is the contents of one's daydreams; another way is one's willingness to sacrifice for a future goal. One does not win an Olympic medal or a Nobel Prize without this drive, nor get to the top of any profession or trade without it.
