Each of the 4C’s focus on a different attribute that independently are important contributors to success and which together form a critically important platform for success.
Control is your self-belief
Who you are, what you stand for and why, and your long-term ambition. It is your anchor enabling you to keep your life and emotions under control. It provides a long-term perspective to counteract the short-term highs and lows, successes and failures.
Commitment is your reliability
Your ability to set and prioritise the right goals and then deliver on them, whatever the setbacks and circumstances.
Control and Commitment form resilience. If you have these in place you possess the ability to survive setbacks and failure
Challenge is your drive
Your appetite for change and for new situations and circumstances. If you are high on challenge you are likely to see setbacks as opportunities and likely to take greater risks to achieve what you want.
The final C is Confidence
Your confidence in your own ability to successfully complete tasks and influence people. The more confident you are, the greater the likelihood that you will achieve successful outcomes.
Challenge and Confidence together form the sub trait confidence; your ability to flourish and to reconsider and take advantage of opportunities.
