Achieving your life’s dream is a mission never finished. Social media entrepreneur, model and socialite, Stephanie has a clear vision for her life, and despite facing big challenges along the way is on her own pathway to success. We caught up with her to discover how she keeps her focus and motivation.
WHO: in your life inspires you?
Oprah Winfrey. Her positive, optimistic and calm vision and outlook on life is so powerful. She has been an inspiration to female entrepreneurs for decades, and has empowered so many of us to strive to achieve what seems the impossible.
WHAT: does your absolute achievement look like?
My version of absolute achievement looks like a strong, confident human being happy with where they are and they can look back on their life feeling accomplished through their failures and their hardships in life, yet still have goals and keep striving forward. Achievement for me is being comfortable in your own skin.
WHEN: is the next opportunity to take another step in the right direction towards your success?
The opportunity to take the next step to drive success is always now. Whatever success means to you. Success can start tomorrow, today and now. Our minds are always thinking about the next thing, but if we are working towards a goal, whether it’s losing weight or helping someone, that’s still being successful. Success doesn’t always have to be monetary.
WHERE: you’ve visited that drives you to achieve your end goal?
Having a special place in the world is so important. It keeps minds focussed, and imaginations broadened. That place for me is Miami, because it’s a place where I feel at home. The beach, vibes, malls and great weather – love it!
WHY: a memory of something you’ve done and WHY it pushes you to keep chasing after your dream?
When I was living in New York, I applied to 50 jobs and went to interviews desperately trying to get a work permit there. I failed endlessly on so many things in my life, but I still have the motivation and determination to keep doing. You have to fall down a thousand times to stand up a million. Never give up on your dreams!
