Living a ‘good life’ means more than just happiness! In this video series I’ve selected from 101 keywords and discuss how each word can impact your potential to live a more happy, flourishing and prosperous personal and work life.

This is keyword #024 – Competency

Your skills plus your knowledge plus your attributes equal the sum of your competency. To live a happy, flourishing and prosperous life you need to be applying your competency through intentional action. Just having competency, whatever the skills, knowledge or attributes might be will not however guarantee you a happy, flourishing and prosperous life.

Without intentional action, you’re just competent.

For competency to be truly valuable it needs to be applied and what causes competency to be applied is motivation.  Your motivation multiplies the sum of your competency.  The higher your motivation and desire to live an intentional happy, flourishing and prosperous life, there is a higher potential that you will take intentional action and apply your competency.

How would you rate your level of motivation and desire to live a happy, flourishing and prosperous life?

Where could you be applying your competency to achieve higher results than you currently are achieving?

What’s your truth about you telling you about your levels of motivation?

Take control of your inner voice and apply your competency to intentional action to achieve the results you deserve.

“If the next generation is to face the future with zest and self confidence, we must educate them to be original as well as competent.
