Confidence, courage, and competence – these are what I like to call the three C’s of success!

Each one of these impacts and propels our ability to effortlessly pursue success. Not only pursue but also achieve what we set out to achieve. 

How do the three C’s contribute toward us achieving what we’ve always dreamed of, what we’ve always desired, and what we know without a shadow of a doubt we deserve? It’s easy. 

First, let’s define each and then look at how each contributes.

Here are the three C’s of Success:

1. Confidence

Definition: the feeling or belief that one can rely on. A feeling of self-assurance. Arising from one’s appreciation of one’s abilities or qualities.

Where you go, you follow. Confidence is an empowering state to be able to tap into. If you possess it, imagine what you are exuding and what you can attract. 

When I think about confidence, I think about this quote from Henry Ford: “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right either way.” 

I’m not talking about a fake it until you make it brand of confidence. Avoid that. It’s a false energy. It’s not confidence. It’s acting. Confidence is relying and leaning in on a state that you actually possess and allows you to trust yourself. 

2. Courage

Definition: mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, withstand fear or difficulty. The ability to do something that frightens one. Strength in the face of adversity.

Think about the courage it takes to be an entrepreneur, sales professional, or business owner. Think about the adversity you face each day. One of the beautiful things about being an entrepreneur is that there’s no ceiling. But if there’s no ceiling, there’s also no floor. We can soar really high or fall really far.

No matter what the adversity is out there, if you can tap into your courage, you can go after what you want with all of your strength, perseverance, and fortitude. You can move forward and face whatever is ahead because you trust yourself. 

3. Competence 

Definition: the ability to do something successfully or efficiently. The quality or state of having sufficient knowledge, judgment, skill, or strength. A sufficiency of means for the necessities and conveniences of life.

It is impossible to know everything you need to know in order to do all the things you need to do in order to build what you want.  You get to do a few things and then surround yourself with people who can do the rest. People who are experts in the fields that we are not experts in. 

Surround yourself with coaches, and personal development, and become the expert in what it is you do. Then, look at what it is that you are not the expert in and decide if you will develop this new skill or hire it out. 

If you don’t have competence, it’s hard to have confidence. And if you don’t have confidence, it makes it impossible to have the courage you need. You want to thrive in all areas. Pursue a state of excellence in your confidence, your courage, and your competence.
