Adriana Rojas Garzón, Bain Capital, LP
“Perder por conocer no es perder. What this translates roughly to, is ‘losing for knowledge is not losing’. This is something that my father has always said to my brother and I. He has such a positive outlook on everything, no matter the circumstances. When things don’t go as planned for me, I always think about my father and this saying to remind myself that no matter what, there was a lesson learned. With that perspective, it makes it easier for me to move forward when things don’t go as I had hoped.”
Aixa Beauchamp, Beauchamp & Associates
“Cuando se cierra una puerta, se abre una ventana. When a door closes, a window opens. My parents spoke little English, and we lived in a tough but close community. If I wanted to succeed, I needed to be determined. When obstacles showed up, as they do occasionally, I reminded myself of my mother’s saying, ‘Hija, muchas vezes cuando se cierra una puerta, se abre una ventana.’ My mom was correct. We can view obstacles as an opportunity for growth and learning rather than hindrances to our dreams and success.”
Julia Cruz, Good Life Productions
“Haz de cada día tu obra maestra. Make every day your masterpiece. Every day is a gift to be cherished and nurtured. Thinking of each day as our masterpiece to create helps to remind me that I have the power to make my life what I want it to be. We named the company Good Life because that is what we wanted for ourselves, our clients, and our community…good lives. When life presents challenges, it’s easy to say, ‘I can’t do this’ or ‘That person/event/obstacle is making it impossible to get to where I want to go’, but this phrase reminds me that I’m in control of my decisions and actions. Every day is a new chance to make the life of my dreams into a real life masterpiece.”
