Top 10 Keys to Success

Top 10 Keys to Success

Many students often ask me…JEN How do you do it? Here is my answer on what I’ve noticed about the secret to my success:

  • I get up at 6:30am
  • I put me first by taking time to enjoy my coffee, to reflect on what’s going on with me personally in my journal, and prepare for my day with meditation.
  • I have created a sanctuary- my home is always filled with fresh flowers, candles, and lovely scents of aromatherapy.
  • I am crystal clear in my big vision and I reverse everything I do into small manageable action steps.
  • When I work, I do it in chunks of non-interrupted, free of distraction time blocks. I handle or shut off anything that might make me go: Squirrel- Shinny Thing!
  • I put my commitments before my comfort. Sometimes I don’t want to put forth the effort – I’d rather surf Facebook, watch my latest Netflix show, or take a nap. Yet – if I have set a time to work on something I don’t put it off until when I “feel” like doing it…I just do it.
  • I make no excuses. Excuses are simply fear of failure or fear of success hiding out underneath.
  • When the fear of failure is real for me I ask myself…What is the worst that could happen if I fail? Then I ask myself- Can you handle that? The answer is always yes.
  • I only work in Team. Everything I do is a collaboration. It may look like I am a one woman show – but behind the scenes there are so many people that I call on for assistance, to partner with, and to co-create with. Working with others makes shit happen…faster.
  • I ask for support. Lots of it. From my friends, my family, and my partner. I speak up when I need help and I don’t try to do everything myself.
