Achieving success is a very personal challenge in today’s crowded, competitive economy. Trial and error is no longer the best option — nor is it even an efficient option. Instead, personal and professional success is dependent on your discovery of the answer to the following 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?
This week’s featured book promises to help you answer each of these questions, and provides a structured approach to accelerate your path to the top. It does so by stressing a conscious self-awareness of what you really want in life.
The 9 Dimensions of Conscious Success
In The 9 Dimensions of Conscious Success, David Nielson addresses the dilemma of how to define your purpose in life to achieve conscious success. Drawing upon his unique life experiences as a management consultant, executive coach and as an organizational developer at Coors Brewing Company, Nielson outlines a practical process model for you to achieve individual success. He uses real-life stories, humor, and a humble approach that has connected with audiences of all ages worldwide in his consulting practice and in the pages of this breakthrough book.
Nielson builds the foundation of his Conscious Success Model on three pillars and six differentiators. The three pillars are:
- Self Awareness
- Social Awareness
When combined and mastered, these essential starting blocks will bring you fulfillment on their own — but they can also be used to create your unique brand, style, and strong reputation. They also support the structure of six key differentiators identified to create Nielson’s nine-dimensional model for achieving success, which include:
- Work Ethic and Personal Responsibility
- Listening for Results and Connections
- Articulation for Impact
Each differentiator is a powerful tool (when mastered) to strengthen your brand and your reputation, and to open doors to opportunities that allow you to fulfill your purpose . . . as consciously planned!
The 9 Dimensions of Conscious Success is a must-read for young executives, career professionals, entrepreneurs, or anyone committed to a personal and professional development journey. A critical starting point on that journey is utilizing the interactive Conscious Success Assessment® — an added bonus for readers. This assessment allows you to increase your self-awareness before creating your own Conscious Success Action Plan.
If you are tired of the trial and error approach to your life, read this book and find yourself on the path to conscious success today!
