Achieve Conscious Success
If you want to achieve success, you should ponder these three questions:
- What is my best purpose to achieve conscious success?
- How can I demonstrate high awareness for conscious success?
- How can I positively differentiate myself from others?
Those three questions are literally on the front flap of a new book, The 9 Dimensions of Conscious Success. They pulled me into a narrative by David Nielson. In the book, David shares the dilemma of how to achieve conscious success and outlines a process that helps you move to a life that fulfils your purpose. David is a management consultant who has spent over three decades in consulting and leadership development. I followed up with him to talk about his work.
“You cannot differentiate yourself based on a false image of yourself.” -David E. Nielson
What is conscious success?
Conscious Success is knowing how you want to show up in life and business, and following a prescribed behavior set which deliberately produces the success you have defined for yourself. The elements and behaviors are specifically the 9 Dimensions.
“How you show up in life is a conscious choice – an import choice, it turns out.” -David E. Nielson
What are some ways to move from unconscious to conscious, and from incompetence to competence?
It starts with increasing your own self-awareness. We emphasize in the 9DCS model that the foundation is defining your purpose, increasing your self-awareness, and increasing your social awareness. As part of the 9DCS model and book, we created an assessment to assist individuals in increasing their self-awareness. We believe this is the starting point for developing your own plan to move toward your own conscious success.
