Successions is the perfect term for "Success Sessions," especially given the sequential component in making successive improvements. One of the most beloved creations by Dr. Michael, Successions includes a hierarchy of priorities known as the Succession Seven. After "Stopping," which is the zero point, Successions begins with "Mindfulness" and ends with "Creativity/Newness." These seven qualities applied in order bring about a more integrative result, one that occurs more organically and lasts longer.

LeftAlignThe Successions Seven are, in order, Mindfulness, Ease, Sanctification, Gratitude, Happiness, Kindness, and finally Creativity/Newness.

Of the seven, the one that requires an even deeper dive is Sanctification. For this reason, Sanctification has its own Seven-Step Process, the Sanctification Seven.


RightAlignThe term Sanctification represents the act of seeing something in its highest possible light. To exalt something is to raise it to its highest possible position.

The Sanctification Seven is as follows:
0) Prepare for Unconditional Welcoming
1) Unconditional Welcoming
2) Meet
3) Greet
4) Interview
5) Vow
6) Assess
7) Address

Preparing for Unconditional Welcoming, the zero point in the Sanctification Seven, is the easiest when ready to do so, when thinking actively about it beforehand. For the other times when thinking about it is absent, the tenets helps tremendously. The more time spent with the tenets, the more likely Unconditional Welcoming will occur and the more quickly it will occur.
