The keys to success include having these three core ingredients.
by Jon Isaacson
The IT factor. Not the scary movie about a blood thirsty clown, but the search for what makes certain individuals successful. I was thankful to have a good discussion with my friends at SU2S.org on what IT looks like and we concluded it has three main components:
The Will + The Skill + The Chill
What does it mean to have the will to succeed?
The Will is whether or not your heart is in the game, whatever your game is. Do you have the will to work in your vision? If you have no will then you will not progress unless you are intentional.
What does it mean to have the skill to succeed?
The Skill separates the doers from the dreamers in that those who have a legitimate will to make a difference and succeed will engage in building their skills. You can have the will and yet fail in skill if you are not engaged.
What does it mean to have the chill to succeed?
The Chill is what separates those who fizzle from those who endure. You can have the will, develop the skill but if you don’t have the chill to weather the storms then you will not be able to finish the race.
Success requires that we practice all three disciplines
Will, skill and chill are required, they are intertwined and progressive. Clarify your vision, grow yourself consistently and hold yourself accountable to see your purpose through.
How do we test our capacity for these success factors?
