  • 10. 10 C # 1 : Competency Know your value/Self assessment - Keep a running list of your skills, competencies, knowledge and accomplishments. Know your strengths as well as your limitations. Be well versed in what you have achieved, your interests and your aspirations as well as the choices you have made. Ask others for feedback and input too.
  • 11. 11 Question: How do you differentiate yourself from your peers and colleagues? What are your areas of functional and/or technical expertise? Have you established specific niches for which you are sought-after and well known?
  • 12. 12 C # 2 : Caring To be a true success in this world we must have a bigger vision than simply accomplishing a goal for ourselves or simply lining our own pockets. Successful people have a deep caring for others. Yes, they are aggressive, but they are not aggressive to the point that they run roughshod over others.
  • 13. 13 Question: What is your care factor? Have you placed people in their proper place, as people worthy of dignity, respect, and proper treatment? Or have you begun to treat others as a means to an end for yourself?
  • 14. 14 C # 3 : Character Financial development is the easy part. Character development is the hard part, letting each and every experience shape and mold us as we experience them, always moving toward our goal and never allowing negative circumstances to destroy us but make us better people. This is what true success is about!
  • 15. 15 Question: How is your character? Are you becoming a better person with each passing experience? Are you becoming a rock of wisdom and experience, deepening your foundation of character?
  • 16. 16 C # 4 : Choice Eisenhower reminded us that our histories are written by choice, not by chance. Every movement you make toward your ultimate success and destiny will be because you choose to move toward it. The actions that you choose, each and every day will add up, over the long-term, to your final destination. The power to choose is one of the greatest gifts known to mankind.
  • 17. 17 Question: Do you choose success with each and every choice you make? Each choice you make either moves you toward your goal or away from it. Which do you choose?
  • 18. 18 C # 5 : Concentration The successful person however, stands firm, with their eyes transfixed on the goal. One of my favorite posters as a boy was of George Brett of the Kansas City Royals Baseball Team. The picture was taken just as the bat was hitting the ball. Where were George's eyes? Straight down the barrel of the bat, looking at the point where the ball and bat came together. Now that is concentration!
  • 19. 19 Question: How is your concentration? Do you stick to your goal and focus firmly on it, or do you let your mind and heart wander from whim to whim?
  • 20. 20 C # 6 : Confidence Confidence is something that you can grow in your mind and heart. Each passing victory that you achieve builds more and more confidence in you to draw from the next time you go to fight another battle on your journey to success. Do what you can to build confidence inside of yourself so you will be able to dip deeply into that well when you need it!
  • 21. 21 Question: How is your confidence? Do you believe that you can achieve what you conceive? Are you winning victories that you can then draw on later?
  • 22. 22 C # 7 : Consistency People who become a success realize that to a great degree, success is a formula. At the very least it is sticking to doing the right things for a long enough period of time for them to create their destiny. This is consistency. They consistently do the things that will bring them their success.
  • 23. 23 Tiger Woods hits hundreds of practice balls each and every day. He doesn't do 100 one day, then two days off, then 500 balls, then a day off, then 300 balls, then three days off. No, he knows the power of consistency and has achieved a level of success that that consistency formulated for him.
  • 24. 24 Question: How is your consistency? Are you consistent? Are you doing the things you need to do each and every day that will bring your goal to you?
  • 25. 25 C # 8 : Courage Successful people are brave people. They know that even success has its challenges, yet they face them head on and move forward anyway. No mountain is too high, nor river too wide, nor foe too large for the person who will choose to live out their dreams! They are courageous people who continue on even when others have quit. And for that they receive their reward!
  • 26. 26 Question: How about you? Are you courageous? Are you willing to face the obstacles and move forward in spite of the fear that may try to well up within you? Be courageous and you will succeed!
  • 27. 27 C # 9 : Commitment Commitment ignites action. It means practicing your beliefs consistently. There are two fundamental conditions for commitment. The first is having a sound set of beliefs. There is an old saying that goes, "Stand for something or you'll fall for anything." The second is faithful adherence to those beliefs with your behavior. Possibly the best description of commitment is "persistence with a purpose".
  • 28. 28 Question: How about you? Do you have a sound set of beliefs? Do you stand for something in your life? Do you have faithful adherence to those beliefs with your behavior?
  • 29. 29 Competency Caring Character Choice Concentration Confidence Consistency Courage Commitment There they are, the Nine C's of Success. Set sail today!
  • 30. 30 "Ultimately the people who win, who achieve victory in Life are the people who are committed to it. They outlast everybody else. Because quite frankly, all success in business, relationships & life comes at the end of the road of commitment!"
