The Gift Of Adversity

The gift of adversity.

Sometimes adversity ends in sweet success, and sometimes it’s in the funk of failure.

One thing that we can all agree on is that adversity forces us to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

The english college that we have to deal with in life challenges us to find our inner strength, and to find strengths we didn’t even know we had, to tackle
problems we had no idea how to solve, and most importantly how to go against the odds.

We come out the other side a different person, with a new perspective and appreciation for life.

LucindaPostArt-1-643x430By @Konnectshun “Moms, we work hard everyday. We invest in our children. We hold down our home – think breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with a few snacks in between. And let’s not forget the daily cleaning duties, bills, and laundry. If married, we nurture our significant others, and if single, we try to go above and beyond to nurture ourselves.

La felicidad a través de los ‘vision boards’ o mapas de los deseos

Lucinda Cross en las jornadas #Activate2K14 del centro de conferencias del diario ‘The New York Times’.

La felicidad a través de los ‘vision boards’ o mapas de los deseos.

Hablamos con la escritora y ‘coach’ estadounidense Lucinda Cross, una de las gurús internacionales en el arte de la visualización creativa.

los 18 años le condenaron a cuatro años y medio de prisión por narcotráfico. Durante su etapa en la cárcel, Lucinda Cross-Otiti se refugió en la fe y participó activamente en todos los talleres que le ofrecían. En uno de ellos encontró la inspiración. Las conferencias de Tony Robbins y Les Brown le dieron la pista para volver a imaginar su futuro. Se empapó de lecturas sobre desarrollo personal y pensamiento positivo y decidió aplicarlas a su vida. El día que la liberaron se propuso tomar las riendas de su realidad y dedicarse a ayudar a los demás.

Así es como esta neoyorquina se convirtió en una de las mujeres más respetadas de su país en el campo del desarrollo personal. Sus investigaciones sobre la práctica de la visualización le permiten hoy recorrer Estados Unidos al tiempo que ofrece charlas, cursos de formación y asesorías a multinacionales. Ha escrito varios libros y colabora periódicamente en la edición estadounidense de The Huffington Post. Además dirige la iniciativa Activate your life today. ¿Su especialidad? Los vision boards o mapas de los deseos –también conocidos como wish boards–, una vieja técnica de crecimiento personal popularizada hace una década por la escritora Rhonda Byrne y la presentadora Oprah Winfrey. La idea consiste en diseñar un tablón con frases y recortes de revista que nos ayude a no perder de vista aquello que deseamos. Hablamos con ella para saber más sobre el cambio, la felicidad y la conquista de los imposibles.

NYPOST Interview: The Woman Who Made A Career Out Of ‘Vision Boards’

For some, the road to success is paved with gold or graduate degrees. For Lucinda Cross, it was glitter and cardboard.

It has been a road with detours and potholes, plans hatched and revised. But if you ask where Cross got the idea for the business that would one day land her in the pages of Essence Magazine and on NBC’s “Today” show, she’ll tell you, without shame or drama: Inspiration came to her in a jail cell.

“Whether you look at it from a spiritual or scientific aspect, this world is a huge vision board. Everything that’s here is because it started as an image someone had in their mind. You want to call it a blueprint, or a business plan? Fine. But first, they had to think about it and draft it. So a vision board? It’s like selling our own ideas to ourselves.”
