After 36 years in business, what’s success look like for education, training and employment entrepreneur, Sarina Russo?
Success didn’t happen for Sarina in 36 days, 36 weeks or 36 months. It’s a discipline she continues to practise after 36 years in business.
“Success can only happen when you first conquer your fear. Then you can discover your true capacity and potential - What you perceive, you can achieve,” Sarina said.
To succeed Sarina believes you need to follow 10 key disciplines:
1. POSITIVE SELF BELIEF & SELF IMAGE.
You are the voice. Take a leap of faith. Back your ability and capability through positive self-talk.
2. STAY PASSIONATE
Love who you are today in pursuit of who you want to be tomorrow.
3. BECOME EXTRAORDINARY
Demand more of yourself than you demand of others. Do ordinary things – extraordinary well and become INSANELY Good!!!
4. YOUR INTERPRETATION
Never take things personally. Look for silver linings. It’s your interpretation of failure or success that makes the difference.
5. ELEVATE YOUR THINKING
Life is 80% psychology and 20% skills and knowledge. Either inspiration or desperation will help you think differently. Never give up.
6. BUILD YOUR BRAND
Be an image-maker. Develop a presence. Be creative in getting your message across.
7. DISRUPT YOURSELF
The Age of Disruption is here! Disrupt yourself before someone else disrupts you!
8. NEVER STOP LEARNING
Keep growing and learning. Get a young savvy ‘Reverse Mentor’ to advise you particularly in the technology space
9. INTEGRITY & TRUST
Be accountable and transparent. Without your integrity and self-respect you have nothing.
10. DAILY EXERCISE
Fitness gives you energy, empowerment and natural endorphins
Sarina said after 36 years in business the best advice I've ever been given is you can do it. The best advice I can give anyone is if it is to be it is up to me.
