Success can be big or small

What is “success” anyway?


There is a lot of talk about “success” and what it takes to be successful. Anyone who gives much thought to the topic would probably agree that one should define “success” before trying to achieve it.  One measure of “success” at Prosperity Consulting is helping you, the client, achieve the results you want to achieve.  We offer these services: coaching and management consulting services.  Really, the “management consulting” is mostly about helping you be very clear on our desired outcomes, creating and actionable plan to achieve them, and providing time-tested and proven methods, techniques and systems to keep you on track. 

What is conscious competency?

A business needs three things to succeed.

In essence, any successful business must succeed in three areas.

1) You must offer something that people are willing to pay for.
2) People must become aware of your business and its offering.
3) Acquiring and delivering value to the customer has to be managed.

Of course, there are many subcategories and complexities involved.  But essentially business is nothing more than the exchange of value from one party to another.   Product or Services, Marketing and Sales and the management of all internal and external systems.

At Prosperity Consulting we use an approach based on  the  Structural Thinking method as the foundation for managing our own business and helping you to manage yours. Really it is based on the ancient Chinese concept of Heaven, Earth and Man,  as traditionally stated. However, in simple terms we are talking about

  • Your desired outcome, or heaven,
  • The actual reality of where you are now in relation to your desired outcome, where you want to be.
  • Man, or Action.  A person, man or woman or other is what takes action to achieve the desired outcome.  Or move the actual or current reality from where it is to where they want it to be. 

In principle it is very simple, but as has been said the devil is in the details.

But back to “success”.  Success can really be many things, as I am sure you know, and it is often not measured in money.  Of course, in today’s world, money is the medium or facilitator of moving energy from one place to another.  So it can not be ignored. But also it should be kept in perspective.  

In simple terms it is very important to be clear about what you want, but interestingly many people have found that it is also important to know why  you want what you want. The “wrong” motivation can often lead to the inability to stick with it, to do what needs to be done, or to hang in there when the going gets tough.   Do you know what is your inspiration or motivation to achieve your dreams? There are some simple ways to determine this.
