The 7 C’s of true success

I love learning about how to succeed in life from a wide range of creative leaders. And I love sharing the learning with others. I recognise that setting goals can sometimes leave us feeling deflated once they are reached so focusing on what we want out of life might work better for some. For true success in any endeavor, we can try the following;

C1: A clear CONCEPTION of what we want, a vivid vision, a goal clearly imagined.

C2: A strong CONFIDENCE that we can attain the goal.

C3: A focused CONCENTRATION on what it will take to reach that goal.

C4: A stubborn CONSISTENCY in pursuing our vision.

C5: An emotional COMMITMENT to the importance of what we’re doing.

C6: A good CHARACTER to guide us and keep us on a proper course.

C7: A CAPACITY TO ENJOY the process along the way.

I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!

  1. Jeanette,

    Thanks for your 7 points on achieving success. I like them. I will give them a try.

    I have enjoyed the week-end here in Galway.

    Yesterday it rained all day – so I did not go out.

    We watched a football match – Dublin versus Tyrone.

    Later we watched a film – Born on the Fourth of July (with Tom Cruise). I had not seen it before. I really enjoyed it. I brought me back fiftey years to those days in the late 1960’s and the early 70’s.

    With best wishes,
