Be Grateful

Gratitude is such a powerful thing. In writing my last blog post for my EMBA Personal Branding class, I can’t help but think of and be grateful for all of the blessings in my life. The picture above kind of illustrates what thankfulness does. I had finally finished the climb up Viñicunca Mountain (known as …

We Can’t Succeed Alone

“You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.” -Zig Ziglar One of the biggest mistakes we can make is think that we don’t need other people. We all do. I always talk about the wonderful people I surround myself with and how lucky I am …

Perspective

In my previous blog posts I wrote about positivity and the ability to be realistic but this time I’d like to concentrate in the power of perspective because by adjusting how we perceive different things, we are able to transform a negative into a positive and therefore manage to feel happy despite any situation. My …

Experience Other Cultures

This past week I was trying to catch up with a friend through text messages and she brought up how her daughter, who is now 15, always talks about studying abroad and she likes to motivate her by telling her that I did it and loved it.  Back then, it seemed dumb because of the …

We Are Not Pizza

Today I’d like to share one of my new favorite quotes: “You’re not going to make everybody happy all the time. You’re not pizza!” -Mark Schaefer When I read this line in Mark Schaefer’s book Known, it immediately stuck in my head because it’s so true!  We can’t be anything everyone else wants us to …

Procrastination

I’m always running out of time. Those who know me are probably thinking “Really? Of all people, Rosa is going to talk to us about procrastination?”  Yes, I am. That’s because it is something that I struggle with so much!  Don’t get me wrong, I get things done but it often means sacrificing lots of …

Dream

This week, I listened to Paulo Coelho’s book The Valkyries on Audible.  This book reminded me of how important it is that we don’t lose sight of our dreams. In this book Paulo journeys thought the Mojave Desert for 40 days in order to fulfill his dream of seeing his Angel. Coelho’s note at the …

Befriend Strong Women

Today we held a virtual baby shower for one of my best friends from college.  It was 10 of us in the Zoom meeting and I’ve been friends with these ladies for 19 years.  Needless to say, we have gone through a lot together.  We have celebrated each other’s successes and have cried with each …

Go With the Flow!

This week, while organizing one of my drawers, I came across a bracelet that one of my best friends gave me after a girls trip.  It had become our mantra during that trip to “Just go with the flow!” and that’s what the bracelet said.  Some people think that you can only be happy and …

Don’t be a Worry Bug

One of the things that we waste most of our energy on is worrying.  I get it, everyone is going through their own challenges and these days just trying to stay healthy and the uncertainty of the economy are probably adding to your typical worries.  But what good does worrying do? There are already not enough …

Stockdale Paradox

While my last post was about me being an optimist, I am also very pragmatic.  Some may think that you can only be one or the other and not both, however, it is actually not uncommon and there is a popular concept for this paradox, it is the “Stockdale Paradox.” “You must never confuse unwavering …
