Make your BLACK Friday a BRIGHT Friday!
2 years ago, I decided to invest in my development, and therefore in my loved ones. I decided to continue my personal and professional development as a Personal and Business Coach. I'm happy helping people develop and achieve their goals in life. It sounds cheesy, but it's true! 😉
Also, one of my pending subjects was volunteering to help children and young people.
Now I'll explain more! Keep reading please!
I also decided to write a book and Action Planner for the same purpose: to help others.
Which, after two years of intense work, I have just published along with a Vision Board.
It's a book I've written with passion because I've always wondered why there are certain things, like getting to know you and understanding what you want to do in life, that we have to learn when we are 40 or older! And I want to share what I've learned throughout my life, career as a leader and as a Coach.
That is why 1% of the benefits of the book will be donated to Fundación Aladina (Spanish Association for the fight against Cancel in Youth) and to teach seminars in schools and help the kids to get to know themselves, understand what their purpose in life is on a personal level, and with their academic and professional life.
Apologies for the long explanation! But I wanted to share this important project with all of you as it is not just another Black Friday promotion!
The goal of the book is, in a super practical way, to help you to not procrastinate, focus on the things that matter and take action to be happy and successful.
When was the last time you stopped to think about what contribution you want to leave in this word? And to your loved ones and professional career? When was the last time you invested in your personal development?
If you're like most people, we don't do enough!
Whether it is for you, to help a loved one to focus and achieve his'her goals or for the children we will help to find their LIGHT, I hope that with your support the BLACK FRIDAY will become a BRIGHT FRIDAY!
Thanks for your time and for your support with this project!
From the bottom of my heart
30 Things That Happen When You Finally Decide to Live Your Dreams
You’ve been thinking about this for a long time, haven’t you? Especially now that another year is gone!
DO YOU WANT TO MAKE CHANGES IN YOUR LIFE OR BUSINESS ONCE AND FOR ALL? ATTEND MY WORKSHOP ON DECEMBER 16TH
You’re terrified of what might happen if you allow yourself to go there. Will everything fall apart?
You’re tempted to turn around and go back to the lie you’ve been living. Where it’s easy, convenient and less demanding. You’ve done it so many times before.
So why is this time different?
This time is different because you’ve caught on to the fact that there’s really nothing behind you. It’s all nonsense. At this point, going back would be more painful than the unknown before you—no matter what that might be.
Here’s what you’ll find after you take the leap. If you go out of your comfort zone.
1. You’ll see “it” everywhere.
“Our eyes only see and our ears only hear what our brain is looking for.” —Dan Sullivan
Once you commit to living your dreams, the lids blinding your eyes will be lifted. A completely new world will be opened to your view.
You will notice opportunities that have been in your reach all along, ones your conscious mind simply didn’t pay heed to.
The fundamental change taking place is your self-identity. This is the point of no return. Once this shift has happened, your whole world changes.
Nothing becomes impossible to you.
Your only limitations are your consciousness, which is quickly expanding.
Whatever you want quickly becomes yours because you see what most people don’t.
Now that you can see it everywhere, you are sprinting.
2. You’ll have boundless energy, fueled by purpose.
After you’ve crossed the threshold of decision, you will find a new wellspring of energy—one that appears to be infinite.
You’ll no longer need to rely on willpower.
Willpower is garbage. It is for amateurs. It’s for people still conflicted about what they want to do.
Once you’ve moved beyond will to why, the decision has been made.
3. You’ll learn, grow and understand quickly.
Once you’ve made the leap, you’ll have a thirst for knowledge, wisdom and understanding. You become both student and teacher.
You will become a sponge.You’ll make connections others don’t see. As a result, you will cement your knowledge by generously sharing it with others.
The teacher is always the one who learns the most.
So you will teach and share abundantly. You will experience far more joy seeing others benefiting from your teaching than by experiencing success yourself.
4. You’ll apply what you’re learning.
Thriving is all you understand anymore. Mediocrity is a mismanagement of your innate human potential.
As a result, you are constantly applying new information to accelerate your progress. You’re a scientist of life, experimenting and trying new things.
When something doesn’t work, you don’t persist.
5. You’ll realize all of your previous fears were unfounded, thus allowing you to embrace future fears.
When the why is strong enough, the how is easily found.
So you don’t worry about it anymore. You see fear as part of the process, as a signal you’re moving in the right direction.
6. You’ll stop worrying about—and instead anticipate—the future.
Once you’ve made your decision, you have nothing to worry about. You are a magnet attracting nothing but brilliance. Every day is a step closer to your ideal than the last. The future is only getting better and better. You are in creation mode.
You’re no longer chasing happiness. Happiness is within. You have embraced who you are, so you’re not trying to compete with some external indicator of success.
7. All of your needs will be met.
Beyond your point of no return, luck and miracles become your norm. All of your needs are met—be they material, financial, intellectual, spiritual or relational.
The right people will come into your life. You will have enough time and money to get moving. The right books, articles and audios will find their way into your life at just the right time.
You have become a vector for everything you need to accomplish your task. Don’t question why—just gracefully, humbly and gratefully receive. The shocking truth is that receiving is far more difficult than giving. Receiving, at a conscious and evolved level, is your purpose. The universe wants to give you everything as soon as you are ready to receive.
You will be given everything you need when you need it. And you no longer question that fact. Here you are.
8. People will enter your life to help you.
“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” —Unknown
When you are on a dedicated mission, people will come to your aid to help you make it real.
Mentors who will teach you and radically accelerate your progress.
Fans and supporters.
Students who want to learn.
Haters (these are just as necessary as the others who enter your life).
Your relationships are by far the most important aspect of your journey. You will begin attracting the right people in your life when you start doing the work.
9. You’ll have bouts of doubt, but they won’t last long.
From time to time, even after countless pieces of evidence that you’re on the right track, you will be tempted to revert. Doubts will creep in. You’ll question everything about yourself and what you’re doing. You’ll go through periods of time without success. Things will appear to be falling apart.
This is a crucial part of the process. Indeed, far more fundamental than what you do is who you become. Growing in consciousness and progressing as a human being is intended to challenge you to the core. Most people take the path of least resistance and this is not that path.
Living your dreams is not a “cheap experience.” It is supposed to require some effort, something from the depths of your soul.
10. You’ll feel inclined to do things you never considered before.
You are no longer rigid in your thinking. You’re open to whatever you feel inspired to do, even if—in the moment—it feels extremely uncomfortable. You no longer operate based on how you are feeling in the moment.
You expect to be inclined to do things yourself and others might be uncomfortable with. You are completely open. You are moving.
The more open you become, the more you find yourself in places you never thought you’d be. But you don’t question why, you just keep going. Along the way, you “connect the dots looking backward.”
11. You’ll see past the broken approaches most people take.
The conventional approach is broken.
Most people haven’t committed to what they feel they should be doing. They remain unaware of who they are, what they stand for and who they are becoming. They are living in fear and confusion, simply waiting to be told what to do. They want the easiest path.
Even worse, most people will go against their own values to fit in with the crowd.
But when you’re liberated from conformity, you quickly discern more effective and efficient approaches. This comes from making connections others either haven’t made or are too afraid to make.
12. You’ll progress quickly at anything you undertake.
Success is not born; it is made.
Once your decision has been made, you’re no longer restrained in your abilities. Instead, you are enhanced and consecrated in your performance.
13. Nothing will seem impossible to you.
Believing something is impossible is arrogant.
It was arrogant of people to believe we’d never fly. It was arrogant of people to believe we’d never put a man on the moon. It was arrogant of people to believe we wouldn’t have satellites in the sky guiding global communication.
We don’t know what we don’t know. Why put a cap on what’s possible? Why live in the past?
Anything and everything could happen. And being open to that fact allows you infinitely more options than those who put an invisible barrier on possibility. Without question, you must believe what you’re doing is possible. As Napoleon Hill said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
14. Luck/miracles will become commonplace.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect.”
Similarly, Bruce Springsteen said, “When it comes to luck, you make your own.”
Dan Sullivan said, “Luck and God favor those with good habits.”
When you decide to live your dreams, you expect radical and amazing stuff to happen. You don’t define what that must be; you simply trust that things will work out. Your daily habits regularly attract beautiful things from the outside world.
Some will call you lucky. Others will call you blessed. Whatever the case, it’s your new normal.
15. You’ll have little interest in what most people are entertained by.
“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.” —Eleanor Roosevelt
16. You’ll live holistically.
After you’ve have a radical shift in identity, you realize that human beings are holistic. When one area of your life is out of alignment, every other area of your life suffers. And you’re increasingly aware when your top priorities are being neglected. You protect the essentials.
Furthermore, when you improve one area of your life, you grow in all areas—you are the system. Consequently, every small and incremental victory you experience creates a surge of momentum toward your ultimate ideal.
17. You’ll no longer fear success or wealth.
The most crippling and pervasive fear is the fear of success. Many people genuinely believe success is a sin, or that it’s not intended for them. But once you have a compelling vision, you stop focusing on yourself. Money is simply a means to an end. Money is a tool.
Not only is your success inevitable, it’s essential for accomplishing what you feel inspired to accomplish.
18. You’ll no longer fear “losing it all.”
You are already complete. No form of success or failure will change that. Consequently, you’re no longer attached to your reputation, accomplishments or possessions. If all of it was somehow lost, you’d have complete confidence that you could continue moving forward. You’d adjust and continue to expect the universe to conspire for your good.
19. You’ll consistently do what’s right, even when it’s not popular.
Most people can eat healthy for one day. Most people can be positive for a few minutes. But when things stop being fun, most people’s resolves crumble.
Not you. Not anymore.
Consistency is the evidence of belief.
20. You’ll have more responsibility.
Most people avoid responsibility. They’d rather someone else carry the load. They’d rather not have to deal with the consequences. Fear of failure (i.e., their ego) stops them from trying in the first place.
When you start taking your dreams seriously, you will not initially be qualified. But as you take on greater responsibility, you’ll become qualified to do what you need to do. You’ll grow into your
21. You’ll often be questioned and criticized for what you’re doing.
When you begin living your dreams, you will often receive unsolicited critique. If something is noteworthy, there will be haters. As Robin Sharma, author of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, has said, “haters confirm greatness.”
When you really start showing up, the haters will be intimidated by you. Rather than being a reflection of what they could do, you become a reflection of what they are not doing. This isn’t about you. It’s about them and their own insecurity.
But the majority of people will support the hell out of you. Most people are inspired when someone lives their dreams.
22. You’ll often be misunderstood.
By nature, having a sense of vision is weird to most people. Being real and authentic is weird. It’s unusual and it’s rare. It’s peculiar. And many people will misunderstand you.
A lot of people won’t get what you’re about or why you’re doing what you’re doing. Most of them mean well. They simply don’t get it, and are afraid of what they don’t understand.
Others will understand you. They’ll support you and cheer you on. Don’t take these people for granted. You need them more than you know.
23. Your goals will manifest quickly.
As an evolved person, you are connected to your higher source. You’ve learned how to create the results you want quickly—often instantaneously. You believe it and quickly you see it. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”
24. You’ll be completely transparent about the good, the bad and the ugly.
You’re humble enough to admit when you are wrong or if you’ve changed your mind. At the same time, you’re not hiding. You’re not afraid of being “seen in all your glory,” as Jim Carrey says.
25. You’ll make things right with people you’ve wronged.
Embracing—rather than avoiding—reality requires that you carry no unnecessary baggage. You want to be completely clear so you’re able to create and flow.
As a result, you openly apologize for things you’ve done wrong in the past. You seek forgiveness, which is really more about you than the person you harmed. It’s not your choice how people respond to your genuine apologies.
26. You’ll be more authentic in public. Who do you have to impress?
Once you know what you want—and you’re completely set on doing it—you stop caring about ridiculous stuff, like what you’re wearing that day.
Steve Jobs wore the same outfit every day. Even among the world’s leaders, he didn’t wear a suit, and people were fine with it. Because he was fine with it. Mark Zuckerberg is similar.
These people are less concerned with fashion and more concerned with efficiency. They don’t care what other people think. They are far less concerned about how they appear and far more concerned about the work they do.
This doesn’t mean you have to be a slob. But if, for some reason, you have a wardrobe malfunction, you won’t let it ruin your day. Beyond clothing and appearance, you are wholly yourself—rather than what society would tell you is proper.
Not sure if I could cope with this ;)
27. You’ll put yourself out there more.
It will initially be embarrassing to start putting yourself out there. But you’re not going to let your ego get in the way of your vision. So you’ll put yourself out there at the expense of looking foolish.
You’d rather accept the consequences of trying your best than hiding your talents.
28. You’ll be genuinely happy for other people’s success.
As an evolved person, you are happy when other people succeed and sad when other people fail. The success of others is seen as the success of the whole.
29. You’ll need more alone time for the deep work.
“Delegate everything except genius.” —Dan Sullivan
Deep work is essential for creation. But it is becoming increasingly difficult to do. You will need to be vigilant against endless distractions and time-wasters.
Only you know your body and mind, but most of the world’s highly successful people do their creating early in the morning. They wake up and get to work. No email, no social media, no communication. Just sitting with themselves, their ideas, their resources and getting breakthroughs.
If you’re highly focused (i.e., you regularly get into psychological flow), you’ll be enormously successful and prolific with only three to five hours of work each day.
30. You’ll have way more time.
“You have to work less to make more money.” —Dan Sullivan

Make a list of the 5 leaders you most admire. They can be from business, social media, politics, technology, the sciences, any field. Now ask yourself why you admire them. The chances are high that your admiration is based on more than their accomplishments, impressive as those may be. I’ll bet that everyone on your list reaches you on an emotional level.
This ability to reach people in a way that transcends the intellectual and rational is the mark of a great leader. They all have it. They inspire us. It’s a simple as that. And when we’re inspired we tap into our best selves and deliver amazing work.
So, can this ability to touch and inspire people be learned? No and yes. The truth is that not everyone can lead, and there is no substitute for natural talent. Honestly, I'm more convinced of this now - I'm in reality about the world of work and employee engagement. But for those who fall somewhat short of being a natural born star (which is pretty much MANY of us), leadership skills can be acquired, honed and perfected. And when this happens your chances of engaging your talent increases from the time they walk into your culture.
Let’s Take A Look At Tools That Allow For Talent To Shine:
Emotional intelligence. Great leaders understand empathy, and have the ability to read people’s (sometimes unconscious, often unstated) needs and desires. This allows them to speak to these needs and, when at all possible, to fulfill them. When people feel they are understood and empathized something, they respond PERIOD and a bond is formed.
Continuous learning. Show me a know-it-all and I’ll show you someone who doesn’t have a clue about being human. Curiosity and an insatiable desire to always do better is the mark of a great leader. They are rarely satisfied with the status quo, and welcome new knowledge and fresh (even if challenging) input. It’s all about investing in yourself.
Contextualize. Great leaders respond to each challenge with a fresh eye. They know that what worked in one situation may be useless in another. Before you act, make sure you understand the specifics of the situation and tailor your actions accordingly.
Let Go. Too many people think leadership is about control. In fact, great leaders inspire and then get out of the way. They know that talented people don’t need or want hovering managers. Leadership is about influence, guidance, and support, not control. Look for ways to do your job and then get out of the way so that people can do theirs.
Honesty. Not a week goes by that we don’t hear about a so-called leader losing credibility because he or she was dishonest. Often this is because of pressure to try and "measure up" and it's not coming from a place of being real - often this relates to fear of not being accepted for your true self. We live in age of extraordinary transparency, which is reason enough to always be true to your core – your mission will be revealed, your motivations will show by your behaviors. But it goes way beyond this. It’s an issue that sets an example and elevates an organization. If you have a reputation for honesty, it will be a lot easier to deliver bad news and face tough challenges. Are you inspiring people from your heart?
Kindness and respect. Nice leaders (people) don’t finish last. They finish first again and again. Ignorance and arrogance are leadership killers. They’re also a mark of insecurity. Treating everyone with a basic level respect is an absolute must trait of leadership. And kindness is the gift that keeps on giving back. Of course, there will be people who prove they don’t deserve respect and they must be dealt with. But that job will be made much easier, and will have far less impact on your organization, if you have a reputation for kindness, honesty and respect.
Collaboration. People’s jobs and careers are integral to their lives. The more your organization can make them a partner, the more they will deliver amazing results. This means, to the greatest extent possible, communicating your organization’s strategies, goals and challenges. This builds buy-in, and again is a mark of respect. People won’t be blindsided (which is a workplace culture killer) by setbacks if they’re in the loop.
Partner with your people. As I said above, people’s careers are a big part of their lives. That seems like a no-brainer, but leaders should have it front and center at all times. Find out what your employees’ career goals are and then do everything you can to help them reach them. Even if it means they will eventually leave your organization. You will gain happy, productive employees who will work with passion and commitment, and tout your company far and wide. This an opportunity to brand your greatness.
Leadership is both an art and a science. These tools are guidelines, not rigid rules. Everyone has to develop his or her own individual leadership style. Make these tools a part of your arsenal and use them well as you strive to reach people on an emotional level.
Be Human. This Matters.

8 Tips for Managing Your Team Effectively
The role of a manager isn’t always smooth sailing. Especially if nobody had taught you to do so.
The research shows that over 65 % of Managers they have never been trained and are left alone!
Though changing , Companies are still lacking appropriate training and coaching for new leaders, which causes conflict and talent retention issues, one of the highest costs for organisations.
September is one of the most popular months for job changes. Are you jumping into your new management role?
Whereas at the beginning of your career it’s likely that you were purely responsible for your work alone, it’s is now your duty to inspire, lead and motivate your team to accomplish a set of goals for the organization.
Easier said than done right?
Not everyone is going to be easy to work with and ensuring everything is running without a hitch can often prove a challenge.
So how can you go about being a great manager who displays authority and leadership, at the same time as maintaining respect from their peers? Here are a few of our top tips for effective management.
1) Maintain good communication
Employees want to be kept in the loop about ongoing projects, goals, and deadlines, so it’s essential that you communicate well with them and inform them about goings-on within the organization. It’s also essential that you encourage feedback and that your staff feel that they can approach you with any questions or issues they want to address, so making yourself accessible to your staff is critical.
2) Build positive working relationships
It’s important to get to know members of your team individually, not only on a professional level but on a more personal level too. When you put the effort in to get to know a bit more about how your colleagues are doing and what they are interested in, it will build a much better rapport among the team.
3) Acknowledge good work
Don’t be one of these bosses who only gives feedback when you’ve got something to criticise! By providing your staff with positive feedback it will help to build their confidence and encourage them to get more involved in the future, so it’s vital that you acknowledge their achievements and the effort that they are putting in. Encourage creativity and ensure that everyone is clear about what is expected of them.
4) Be real
Your team doesn’t expect you to be superhuman, so if you’re feeling the pressure and need a helping hand, don’t be afraid to admit it and if you make a mistake, own up! By showing the human side of yourself and allowing your staff to get to know you a bit better, your team will feel more relaxed and comfortable approaching you.
5) Be decisive
A good leader needs to be able to assert their authority and make important decisions for the team. There is no space for flakiness in a leadership role, so it’s crucial that you stick to your guns and go with what you feel is best the business.
6) Delegate jobs to the right people
Part of why it is vital that you establish a relationship with your team and get to know them individually is so you can assess what their strengths are. People perform better and are more engaged in roles where they feel they are employing their best skills, so delegating proper functions that suit each will have a significant impact on the productivity of the team.
7) Manage conflict
When there is conflict in the workplace, it should not be ignored. Turning a blind eye could lead to a negative atmosphere, which could have implications for staff productivity and communication among the team may suffer. When an issue arises, it’s crucial that it is addressed straight away before it builds.
8) Set a good example
Your staff will look to you for guidance and inspiration, so it’s essential that you set a good example to gain their respect. If you expect them to behave professionally and commit to their work, it’s vital that you do so yourself. Make sure that you are doing your job, continuing to develop your career and support your team in doing so too.
