We had the good fortune of connecting with Tammy Ng and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tammy, what do you attribute your success to?
Having an abundance mindset, determination, and discipline have all played a tremendous role in my business, Glow Studeo.
The ability to see limitless potential in life and intentionally drive yourself towards creating your ideal life is a very powerful mindset I’ve adopted. Conditions aren’t always desirable, but if I can overcome struggles —I’ll start to recognize my true potential and how much more I’m capable of. Understanding struggle is a valuable part of the success recipe that encourages me to not give up when times are tough.
When facing adversity, my determination to get closer to accomplishing my goals gets me through the day. Regardless of what industry you’re in, many people are working towards the same goal and you’ll be surrounded by competition. When you desperately want to stand out from the rest —sacrifice, focus, and commitment are necessary. Even if you’re not seeing the growth you’re expecting at the moment, stay consistent with your work. Set yourself up for the future and be prepared because you never know when an opportunity will come knocking at your door.
Someone once said, “wake up every day and operate as if your window of opportunity is running out.” This quote reminds me of how important discipline is, especially when I’m coming up with excuses for my lack of consistency. On bad days, my emotions and laziness consume me. Recently I’ve changed my perspective —instead of coming up with excuses as to why I don’t want to do a task, I simply see it as ‘part of my job & it has to get done’.
Having the right mindset and persistent execution is a formula for success.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My product photography business started unintentionally when a digital marketing client asked me to take on photography responsibilities. Every photographer is unique but what sets me apart from others is my ability to sacrifice work-life balance to prioritize goals. This approach forced me to face difficult situations and embrace the process of building mental strength. Whether I failed or succeed, every experience shaped the person I am today.
One of the many lessons I’ve learned is that success is a direct correlation to an abundance mindset and grit. This perspective pushed me to continuously work towards bigger goals and have the self-belief that my abilities are limitless. The message I want to share is that every obstacle and breakthrough molds the person we become. The amount of effort put into prioritizing your business will not go unseen.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
One of my favorite books that deserve recognition is “Relentless” by Tim Grover.
This book ingrained the mindset that failure is never an option and you can’t expect results while staying in your comfort zone. My favorite lessons from this book are to never be satisfied, face your fears, and strive to be the best.
To become great at anything, you must have relentless belief and execution to pull you through the countless times you want to give up. When you’re able to show up every day, even on the days you want to curl up in a ball, this proves a willingness to do the hard things others waiver to. Living this way means you’ll be facing all kinds of pressure and stress, which will define your level of success as well as build your mental toughness. The takeaways from this book have been so impactful that I use them as a daily reminder of the life I want to live by.
