Back in 2003, I left Venezuela to move to the USA. Back then I had no idea about culture shock, leadership, nor the power of communication.
Next thing I knew, I found myself experiencing the 3 most challenging years of my life. Soon, I was completely frustrated and angry with the world around me.
I felt lost, lonely, and depressed.
But one night in the summer of 2006, I came to a life changing conclusion. I realized something that rocked the way I saw the world.
That night I understood that the only thing in common between everything around me is ME!
Back then I used to think that if things were going wrong around me, then I had to change them.
But after moving 2 times already, I understood that night that the problem was not around me but, in me. The problem was my attitude.
So regardless of how many times I change things around me, nothing was going to improve unless I change my reactive, negative mindset.
So I did. Life was never the same…
