My Definition Of Success | Success for me is to follow your heart and get others to do the same!
To become the person that I was meant to be, to develop my gifts and talents and to be able to inspire others to do the same. I have discovered when I was really small that the sense of success does not necessarily come from finishing first – but to achieve what I set out to.
I Am Driven By | Excellence for all, all-round. It gives me great satisfaction when I do.
My Highlights | The fact that even though I come from a small town, that I had big dreams and that I did not give up when things went wrong.
The Difference Between Good And Great | Passion often makes that distinction.
A Key Talent | My biggest strength is that I can identify my strengths and passions. I know that there are no quick fixes or crash courses to follow if you want to achieve success and that almost anything is possible if you really want to do it. To achieve anything, you need to have the drive to stick to it, even when things don’t go right.
