We had the good fortune of connecting with Kristina Mezhynskaya and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kristina, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Discipline! Personally, I believe that discipline is the basis of everything; as the basis of proper nutrition, an athletic body, it aids us in achieving our goals in our daily lives. Consistent disciplined actions offer us the possibility to aim at certain results – good health, a beautiful body, growth of our own company or brand. All of those things don’t just simply appear out of thing air. They don’t happen all at once. It is a process, a road through which the route requires having discipline. If it’s easier to imagine, in my understanding of things, the world operates similar to a gigantic computer. Where if you enter a request clearly, as you do in a search engine, then you are given the requested result. Meaning you have to outline your goals. You have to force yourself to be consistent, disciplined, and follow through and never give up!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Never give up. Regardless the task at hand, regardless the obstacle, I’d always like to stay motivated by the goal that is on the other side. I dream of never giving up on my dreams. There is only one real reason why people are not getting what they want and believe to deserve and it’s that they give up too early. Difficulties, failures are all temporary troubles. As cheesy as it is, life is full of ups and downs. Remember: as long as you are alive, anything is at hands reach and possible. There is only one good reason to stop fighting for your goals and dreams and that is death. As long as you are alive, healthy and free, you have every opportunity to keep moving towards your goals. And you should keep on doing this until you reach them. Don’t sell yourself cheap! There will be many more people in life who will want to keep you where you are now. To keep you stagnant and at a low vibration. Listen to your inner self, your inner child who still exists and dreams. People will convince you that you have conceived the impossible and you need to face the truth. My advice to you is to not let anyone ruin your dream. If you have this one idea, one goal or dream in your head then you have everything in your hands to make it come true. What can kill your dream is doubting , believe in yourself as that’s all you need.
