A peek inside the program:

lesson one: habits

Lesson one is about habits and the three components: Trigger, Routine and Reward. We focus on the “Routine” as the one component of habit that you can actually control. Dissect the Trigger to understand the “Why” behind every habit. Develop new routines that line up with what you are trying to accomplish.

lesson two: motivation

We introduce the “Scales of Motivation” as a guide to why you may or may not be doing something. Evaluate the scales to see which part of the formula needs to be adjusted in order to keep moving toward your goals. We also explore two forms of motivation: External and Internal. Enjoy External motivation, but live through Internal motivation.

lesson three: pain

We talk about “Pain” and discomfort as a critical part of positive transformation. We teach that the pain you’ll experience during your change is nothing compared to the pain you may feel if you decide to stay in your current situation.

lesson Four: the seven e’s

The Seven E’s represent the way thoughts enter and affect your mind. You’ve got to stop the negative thoughts at the first E, “Entrance” and, conversely, you need to nurture the positive thoughts all the way through the final E - “Enveloped”. Our thoughts become our words. Our words become our actions. Our actions become our habits. And our habits define who we are.

lesson five: visualization

“Visualization” - seeing it and achieving it. Think of an image on a puzzle box to illustrate the idea of having a picture of what you’re reaching for. If you cannot visualize where you want to be at the end of your journey, then the chances of ever starting that journey are slim to none. Visualize your goal and reach for it one piece at a time.

lesson six: value of time

We explore the “Value of Time”. Make a list of the six most important tasks to accomplish each day and work to optimize the 168 hours you have in each week. True lasting transformation takes time - using that time wisely and effectively creates change.

lesson seven: burn the bridge

Identify and visualize challenges that are keeping you from changing or causing you to go back to your old habits, put them on top of that bridge and blow them up! Be committed to your future self.

The second part of TOPUCU is the FINISHER Program. Here, we guide you through the process of taking an inventory of your life. We’ll break it down into sections like family, education, health, work and more. This activity leads to the creation of a Personal Mission Statement for your life. We’ll get to the core of who you are and help you lay out specific, positive statements about yourself that will keep you motivated and on track to being the best person you can be each day.

Then we identify specific and attainable SMART Goals for every area of your life. We teach you about four types of time-sensitive goals. These goals become the ultimate key to seeing true positive transformation.

"TOPUCU really influences me in my everyday life because before TOPUCU, I didn't have my schedule straight, my grades weren't the best. But, once I got into the program - it really helped me figure things out. I can schedule my day, I prioritize and my grades started getting better. Now I'm living at a 3.6 and it's really nice."

"When working out now I look at my wristband when I want to stop and it reminds me of the TOPUCU principles and gives me the extra drive to reach my goals ... to be able to do the things I couldn’t do before ... don’t stop. I truly believe this program will help many people change their lives."
