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.

Monica Teurlings | Intuitive Medium- Author-Speaker

As an Intuitive & Evidential Medium working with energy, spirit guides and the spirit world daily it may seem that the road to success would be in the bag. After all, that’s quite a dream team working with me everyday. Having this ability to tap in and receive guidance for myself in life and within my career is incredible but that is not what brought success to my door; that’s not how success works. Read more>>

Niko Ivanov | Partner (NOX Media)

I fully believe in the idea that there is power in a pattern and that the patterns or habits of our lives will dictate where we go, what we will accomplish and ultimately who we will be. There are of course bad habits that can throw us into a spiral/hold us back and we’ve all lived those but for me there are a handful of healthy habits that bring me clarity on a consistent basis which has allowed me to get where I am today.

Matt Mondini | Multidisciplinary Designer

Really small habits that build discipline and sharpen my focus have helped me succeed the most. Recently it’s been my morning routine; have a coffee, read a book, stretch and meditate. It sounds simple, but it kick starts my day and sets the tone for the rest of the morning. I usually do my most important or cognitively demanding task first, and my morning habits make sure my mind is clear and I have the focus to engage in deep work. The discipline to keep this routine, even if I’m traveling or in a different setting, seeps into the way I run my creative practice. Read more>>

Kedrick Pasley | Dancer

As cliche as it sounds, just simply being me helped me succeed. Instead of looking at the person next to me as competition, I use it as inspiration and motivation to help me grow. Knowing that what’s for me is for me and waiting my turn. Read more>>

Carl Morrissette | Celebrity Personal Trainer

My discipline and struggles are what helped me become the person I am today. My interest in fitness grew when I was mocked and bullied for my skinny physique. To overcome this shortcoming I started training seriously and became one of the most celebrated fitness trainers the industry has ever known. Everyone should adopt a fit lifestyle to face grave challenges that come up from time Timor time. I believe that being fit helps you over come many obstacles not only physically, it makes you mentally tough. Read more>>

AQ | Artist

consistency. i saw this interview with the late great nipsey hustle, where he was giving advice to up and coming artists. He talked about how he was no different than the artists who haven’t gotten their break yet, he just never gave up. He never stopped. Even though ive never really listened to Nips music too much, that clip sticks in my head on a regular basis and motivates me a lot. Once i was able to be consistent, i started to see progress in not only the art, but also the numbers as well. Read more>>

Samia Omari | Actor and Performer

I feel that one of the things that helped me the most was to gradually putting together a routine of small habits, both to manage the multitasking that acting requires and build up a stronger mindset. There are so many facets linked to the job of acting that I used to feel overwhelmed in trying to keep up with everything. On top of maintaining a practice of the technique, acting also involves speech work, researching plays or shows, reading, checking what projects and auditions are coming out, applying for them, Read more>>
