In the opinion of Brian Tracy, if you want to achieve maximum success, then, you must practice these seven essential principles. These are powerful seven steps that you can use to set and achieve your goals for the rest of your life.

7 C’s of Success

1. Clarity
The first C of the 7 C’s of Success given by Brian Tracy is Clarity which has a huge role in both, the success and the failure of a person. You need to know who you are, what your goals and what you want to accomplish. 80% of success comes from this clarity and on the flip side, 80% of failures also come from the lack of this clarity. The greater clarity you have regarding the issues such as the values, the vision, the mission, the purpose, and the goals, the greater are the chances that you will accomplish something great in your life.
2. Competence
According to Brian Tracy, the second C of the 7 C’s of Success is Competence. In every field, if you want to be successful, then you must be competent enough to stand among the top performers in this competitive world. To reach the next level of success, you must be excellent at what you do now. For this reason, you must resolve to join the top 10 percent in your field. If you are an entrepreneur, your primary goal must be to give excellent performance in the business task and dedicate all your energies to doing quality work.

3. Constraints
The third C of the 7 C’s of Success given by Brian Tracy is Constraints. He says that there will always be a constraint or limiting factor between you and your goals. You need to identify these chokepoints and double the time that you spend in solving them as this will determine that how fast you’ll be able to get to where you want to be. The faster you remove these constraints, the faster you’ll be able to achieve your goals.
4. Concentration
According to Brian Tracy, the fourth C of the 7 C’s of Success is Concentration. It is the ability to focus on one thing at a time. You need to identify the most important things that you have to do and do them first. When you do that, at least you get the most important things done even if distractions get in the way. An essential prerequisite for success is your ability to concentrate single-mindedly on the most important thing and stay working on it until it is complete. If you do not have the ability to practice sustained concentration on a single goal or task, that is, in a single direction, there is no success possible.
5. Creativity
The fifth C of the 7 C’s of success given by Brian Tracy is Creativity. Creativity here includes new ideas and innovation which are the essence of a successful business and anything that you do to achieve great success. For that reason, you need to fill your life with ideas from different sources. Creativity is required to be exercised like a muscle because if you don't use it, you'll eventually lose it. Your ability to solve the inevitable problems is the essence of creativity. Almost everyone has the potential. It’s just that, you need to unleash your creativity and focus it on removing obstacles, solving problems, and achieving your goals.
You have to put in many, many, many tiny efforts that nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile. – Brian Tracy
6. Courage
According to Brian Tracy, the sixth C of the 7 C’s of success is Courage. You need Courage mainly to Begin and to Continue. What makes the difference is the courage to take the ‘first step’. Most of the people never have sufficient courage to launch a new business or do something extraordinary. Then, the second step is the courage to continue and never give up. You will eventually achieve your goals and be successful if you have the courage to endure and to hang in there persisting in the face of all adversity until you finally succeed.
7. Continuous Learning
The seventh C of the 7 C’s of success given by Brian Tracy is Continuous Learning. Every successful entrepreneur reads books on a daily basis. They keep enhancing their knowledge by reading these books going through websites, listening to podcasts, etc. You should also read at least one self-help or business book that will keep you miles ahead of the competition. Also, you must keep asking quality questions to get quality answers otherwise your growth will slow down. Also, manage your time in such a way that you spend a minimum of 30 minutes a day exploring and going through websites as by this you can keep yourself updated about recent advancements and technology.
The above-mentioned 7 C’s of Success given by Brian Tracy are key elements that help you go all the way in your success journey and help you achieve your goals. These 7 C’s of Success are not only for the entrepreneurs but also for all others who want to reach the top. All you need to do is to go through them and make them a part of your life by applying them in your life situations.
