What is your personal definition of success?
My definition of success is defined ultimately by how I feel. A feeling of accomplishment, confidence, peace and happiness.
For me, this is made up of:
* Running a successful and fulfilling business and helping my clients to breakthrough their current results and accomplish their goals
* Challenging myself to accomplish new things and do things differently
* Having great health and keeping fit; knowing I am looking after my body
* Ensuring I make the most of my time and have travel and adventures
* Having a great relationship with my husband, family and a close network of friends
* Serving others
Ultimately knowing I am living a life of meaning, joy and purpose.
Can you share the steps you take daily to improve?
Morning – this is my time.
This is the most critical part of my day as it sets me up for the rest of the day. I exercise most mornings – in the summer we go to the ocean, swim and catch waves; sometimes I run there or do yoga and gym some evenings.
Coffee at the beach with my husband or at home – healthy breakfast or coffee if intermittent fasting
Then I go to my office – I read my daily quote, connect with my future vision and take a few minutes to plan my day
I have a list of SET TASKS for my day that I do my best to complete daily and score out of 100%
I make sure I stop during the day and re-calibrate. I either go outside and appreciate nature; tend the veggie garden or I sit in my chair and simply breathe for a few minutes to re-set.
At the end of the day, I answer seven simple short questions – I have distilled these so there is NO excuse whatever happens. This helps me take a few minutes to recall my day and see what I did, could have done better and what I must do tomorrow.
And each week I have a set of 10 questions I ask to review my week. This is what helps me keep focused and conscious and in charge of my business and life. And I read or listen to books on audible frequently.
What is your advice for someone making an important decision?
First, it’s helpful to know what this decision is part of – how will the decision impact your life and your goals? Spend a few minutes looking at the costs and benefits and if the options match your values and path. Sometimes asking other people’s advice can be helpful, but ultimately, it’s up to you. Don’t overthink it – you will know if you are doing this if you get stuck and can’t decide. Stop and ask your heart. If your heart feels good, i.e if the energy expands, it probably means this is the decision. And remember you can always make another decision.
