Tara's 6 Positive Habits To Cultivate Success

May 10, 2024

How often do you find yourself overwhelmed by the demands of running your business? How close have you been to feeling totally burnout and ready to give up!!!


Our ability to stay focused and energised in the dynamic and fast-paced world of Retail has it's challenges...


Often spread thin across every area of our business, it's normal for you to feel your energy deplete at a rapid pace!


However, being in control of your habits does help.


Below I share with you, the 6 habits I personally swear by to cultivate positivity and success! When routinely practiced, you too will begin to build resilience in both your business and personal life.


Physical Habits. Move your body every day! It doesn't have to be a strenuous run or high intensity workout. A gentle stroll on the beach is enough to oxenagate your blood and stimulate blood flow. I personally use this time to think through things and clear my mind!


Brain Habits. I'm a big fan of personal development and I love to learn! I like to stay motivated and inspired and there is no better way to do this than to keep learning. I find my greatest ideas come through personal development and engaging in others experiences.

Podcasts, books, short courses, online courses, webinars and networking all contribute to this and are excellent learning tools!

Both Danny and I have always invested a decent part of our budget on business coaches and courses to inspire, educate, bounce ideas and remain positive and motivated!


Social Habits. It's very important to come up for air every now and then! Talk to people and friends about things other than your business. You never know what fresh conversation might inspire, so allow yourself some time off and don't get too involved in your work!


Networking Habits. Conversely, being in business can sometimes feel like a lonely existence! Maybe there isn't anyone in your close circle who understands your business, the effort you put in, or the vision you have? Conversations between fellow business owners, reading business journals, following relevant instagrams and listening to podcasts can be extremely rewarding - and even therapeutic!


Spiritual Habits. Spiritual habits are fundamental for our development and evolution. This could be in the form of meditation, mindfulness, church, yoga or some kind of gentle practice. Whatever your beliefs, it is important to set aside this time to develop an attitude of gratitude and remain positive in your thoughts.


Productivity Habits. I feel most productive when I plan. Personally, I do this on a Friday afternoon so I can enjoy a free mind over the weekend! Scheduling and prioritising ahead of time allows for maximum productivity to ensure a smooth flow of tasks. Just be sure to be realistic with the tasks that you set by allocating specific and manageable time constraints.


Believe me when I say, I haven't always been great at self-care.


You might have seen one of my recent Instagram Stories where I'd managed to slip away from work to get my hair done - the first time in 2 years!!


If you don't take time out for yourself and get organised for the coming week, it's surprising how much of a negative impact it can have on your state of mind and productivity! And without a routine in place, it becomes a vicious cycle of negative habits - been there, done that!! There is also no longevity in working yourself down to the bone!!!


One last consideration...


Your thoughts create your feelings,

your feelings create your actions,

your actions create your habits,

and your habits create your life.


It took me years to establish these 6 habits, but I can honestly say, when applied and practiced often, they are the reason for my business success and positive well-being.

Do you ever daydream about starting your own successful business, thriving online store or beautiful retail space but don’t have a single clue where to begin?

Is your excitement and enthusiasm continually squashed by confusion and doubt over what you physically need to do to get started? 

 Perhaps you feel like you don’t have the right tools in your kit to actually build your dream business? 

Let me tell you right now - you are definitely not alone! In fact, when I launched my business back in 2009, I had no idea what I was doing. I am the living proof that you can start a business without any prior knowledge.

But… a little help never goes astray, right?
