The Outcome Progression Model was developed by success strategist Hotep, to demonstrate that every outcome is a result due to a sequential progression of 4 individual factors. Each factor is built upon the preceding level and is derived from the foundation starting with the individual’s upbringing. From this beginning, a chain of events can be traced and linked, leading to the ending result (outcome).
