The THREE C’s to Success
There are THREE C’s required for us to have any significant amount of success in life. If you can incorporate these THREE C’s into your life, you will put yourself on the fast track to success. Although all three of them are in and of themselves important, it is imperative to have all three in order to sustain any significant amount of achievement.
The First C is CREATE. You are the author of your life and your future success and you are the only person responsible for creating the life that you want for yourself. The late motivational speaker and business philosopher, Jim Rohn said, “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” Don’t leave your success and happiness in the hands of chance. Take full ownership and create the life that you deserve. Determine what you want out of life and go after it as if your life depended on it, because it does. Regardless of what your current circumstances are, you have the ability to change your life and create the life that you want for yourself. In order to make this change, it is also going to require the Second C.
The Second C is COMMITMENT. Once you have decided that you are going to create the life that you want for yourself, it is going to require commitment. Commitment means stepping outside of your comfort zone. Real estate mogul Donald Trump says, “Your higher self is in direct opposition to your comfort zone.” Typically, anything significant that we are trying to create in our lives lies just outside of our comfort zone. We have to commit ourselves to putting all the excuses to the side and to doing whatever it takes to realize our goals and dreams. However, it is not enough for us to simply be committed; we also need the Third C.
The Third C is CONSISTENT. We must be consistent when trying to create the life that we deserve. Motivational speaker, Tony Robbins says, “It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.” We have to be consistent in the pursuit of our goals and dreams. That means that we have to be willing to push forward despite the obstacles and setbacks that life will present to us. Being consistent means doing all the things which are required for you to do in order to achieve your goals and dreams, even on the days when you don’t feel like doing them. Success is not convenient, but rather, it is rewarded to those who are consistent in their pursuit.
