Have you ever wished you could be a fly on the wall of a successful person’s home? Get to see the inside of what they do, how they do it and what has been the key to their success? Well, you have your chance.

What habits have you formed in order to create a life of success?
I’m a spontaneous person by nature and yet I realise the need to form habits, routines and patterns to shape my business days. My daily routines include:
- Exercise on a daily basis. Now that I’ve been doing this for a few months I really notice the difference on the days I miss out – I’m not as relaxed and I don’t feel as healthy.
- Make someone else feel amazing. Whether it is a staff member, a client or my partner, it’s a daily goal to make someone go home with a smile because of something I’ve recognised about him or her.
- Learn something new each day. This could be anything from a new word from dictionary.com’s word of the day or a new business technique.
- Get inspired. I usually do this by finding quotes that inspire me, these are a few of my favourites:
Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get. Ingrid Bergman
Focus always precedes success. Denis Waitley
