We don’t believe success is random. Over the years we have spoken with hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs, artists, creatives, researchers, athletes, and more. We’ve learned from them – both through their stories and through the advice they’ve shared with us – and it’s quite evident that success is more likely when certain habits are present. So, we decided to ask folks to share their habits with us, especially those that they feel helped them succeed.

Definitely first & foremost keeping God 1st in my life! He’s brought me through sooo much & especially on this new Spiritual Journey that I embraced, I’ve seen nothing but FAVOR & mind-blowing blessings so it’s imperative that I keep this relationship strong if I want to receive all that I ask & pray for! But of course we won’t get any of that if we don’t do OUR part so at the same time I try my hardest to constantly keep my thoughts positive, protect my divine energy, WORK HARD, keep my closest/purest family & friendships close, & just try to be a better me than I was the day before! Also by keeping the words GRATITUDE, OPTIMISM, ORGANIZATION, FAITH, KINDESS & LOVE in the very front of my mind considering that we receive the energy that we put out! Read more>>

Rae Jordan | Actress and Brand Developer

I am so type A! People have said hat i should be a party or event planner. When I was applying to colleges, I had a 20+ page packet of each schools information, deadlines, facts, etc. That’s how my brain has always worked, and it took some growing into to appreciate it! Tasks that others find tedious or repetitive, I really thrive in. I see everything as a puzzle, and I’m braced with tenacity until I’ve figured it out. That’s how I really began to break into social media. Read more>>

Habits are what breed success to me. In business there are a few things you can manipulate a few things that’ll work out in your favor but creating a pattern I know for sure is one thing that keeps you in peoples conversation. Our minds remind us of things we’ve seen and heard. With that and business together, I can vouch for outcomes that exceed expectations simply because of consistency and habitual marketing. For example, I introduced selling memberships in 2018. However I didn’t make my first sale until 2019. With consistent strategies you can almost always stimulate success. Read more>>

Yazid Smith | Entrepreneur & Aspiring Influencer

I wouldn’t say I have “succeeded” just yet. There’s a lot more work that needs to be done to get where I want to be. However, I feel being ambitious, continuously searching for inspiration, reminding myself of my worth, and being self sufficient/independent were some of the habits that I developed that got me THUS far. But I’m really just getting started! Read more>>

Artavia Norman | General Beauty Practitioner/Consultant

For me, the bad habits actually ended up helping me succeed. This is due to that those bad habits ended up being lessons that I corrected and thus turned into a success. Here a few of my bad habits that gave me the biggest lessons. #1 Money- My spending of money freely caused me not to be prepared for the necessities such as ordering supplies, renovations and etc. Which would cause a ripple effect in that I would have to move customers appointments or be behind on which caused the loss of clientele.
