Jerry Rice Quote: “Today i will do what others won’t so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.” It’s a motto I live by in all aspects of my life including business. I truly believe it’s the reason why I get disproportionate results for my clients because I embed this mindset into all my services. I visualize the process most people use to achieve a specific goal (ex. Job Searching) and then I look for ways I can overdeliver better than the competition. That’s how my clients get job offers within 90 days and receive up to $100k in salary increases even in the midst of a pandemic. Read more>>

My daily affirmation has been: Keep Going, your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep Going, tough situations build strong people at the end. I love this affirmation, mainly because, it’s the honest truth. I am living proof!! Everything other people may see you do now is made possible by the experiences that may have not been seen or spoken of. We are molded by our past and current experiences. Read more>>

“He who fears death will never do anything worthy of a living man”. If we replace the word “death” with any of the top fears that hold us back in life this makes more sense. The Fear of Rejection The Fear of Failure. The Fear of Success The Fear of Uncertainty. The Fear of Loneliness. The Fear of Change. The Fear of Loss of Freedom. The Fear of Being Judged. The Fear of Getting Hurt. The Fear of Inadequacy. “He who fears “failure” will never do anything worthy of a living man”. “He who fears “success” will never do anything worthy of a living man”. “He who fears “being judged” will never do anything worthy of a living man”. … and so on.

“Life doesn’t have to be planned. Just roll with it and let it happen.” I feel like this quote speaks to me because I have always been the type to know how I want my life to be. And, by that I mean graduate from high school, go off to college, meet the love of my life, get married , have kids and etc. I wish I can say that’s how my life went but no it didn’t. At the age of 16, I made the mistake of dropping out of high school, I just didn’t like school. I thought i knew better then my parents but of course I was wrong. I did do homeschooling online so I did end up getting my diploma but i wasn’t happy about it which I should be since I had graduated before my class of 2015 but no I was more disappointed in myself once I started to realize I wouldn’t go to prom and walk the stage like everybody else.

The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm. This quote is attributed to the Chinese philosopher Confucius. I like the quote because it reminds me to have patience and to be flexible in mind and spirit, to a point. I’ve found that exhibiting impatience doesn’t help in most situations and usually is only to the psychological disadvantage of the impatient. My being upset about something not going as quickly as I’d like, doesn’t make things happen any faster. All I can do is inquire and wait and inquire again. If it is something I can do on my own, then I will do it and the problem is solved. When times are hard this quote reminds that all winds will subside – I am rooted and will bear the harshness until it does, like the green reed. Even when it seems I’m twisting in the wind I’m still rooted and my flexibility will eventually allow me to realign myself. To me, it is a quote that speaks directly to the importance of a strong mental fortitude. Read more>>

My favorite quote is ” Whatever you perceive is what you will receive.” Basically , whatever energy you put in the atmosphere is what you will get back. I chose to always find the positive in any situation. You are in control of what you allow in! In life, things will happen your response is controlled by you. Read more>>

“It wasn’t rejection, it was redirection!” If something in life doesn’t pan out at that moment in time like I would want it to, I just look on the brighter side of things and realize that wasn’t for me! Something better is coming! Read more>>

Yes I do have one that comes to my mind in this moment and it is “she believed she could, so she did” for me this quote marks so many stages in my life. Mainly the decision to move to the USA by myself 12 years ago that really paid of and it has been one of the best things I have done so far. The decision to have a Bariatric surgery for my health and lost 140lbs changing my habits and learning how to eat better. One of the hardest moments in my life so far when I think this quote took his signifícate to another level was when my dad passed. I am only child and going trough that by myself was something that I never thought I will be able to do and I did it. So I think life is hard and comes to you with a lot of bumps but is you trust God he will be able to show you the way and give you the strength to do what is necessary at the time. Read more>>

My favorite quote is “Good better best never let it rest, until your good is better and your better is best”. To me this quote means that there is always room for improvement and growth and to always be resilient. Throughout life and business you’ll always face challenges and obstacles but you can not allow those things to stop you from being persistent or reaching your goals. Daily this quote is a reminder of the personal growth I’ve seen within myself over the years and it’s motivation to continue to gain more knowledge, skills and experience to be the best I can be in every area of my life.
