Hola, I’m Ricardo Rodriguez a Certified Success Coach, and like you, I have reached those points of overwhelm and stress in my personal and professional life that eventually lead to feeling stuck and unfulfilled.
Born and raised in Mexico City, one of the largest cities in the world, it was quite easy for me to fall into the trap of chasing other people’s dreams and not pursuing my authentic life. Though I recognize that my family, friends, and educators had good intentions for me, and that I was eager to please others, ended up receiving a degree and embarking on career as an Industrial Engineer, later specializing in logistics. In 1997, I came out to my family and friends and I convinced myself that moving to Canada would be the best way to start a new chapter in my life. This move did bring me closer to living my authentic life, but it was not the solution. Even though major parts of my life were full of excitement, curiosity, and support, I still lacked clarity in other areas, especially around my purpose and how I was to make an impact.
(Un)fortunately, in 2016 I began to experience chronic, severe, and demobilizing back pain, which I eventually came to realize was communication from my body that I was not maintaining a healthy harmony in my life. As I began to look closer, it was clear to me that being fulfilled in one aspect your life doesn’t make up for emptiness in another. That the belief of “striving for balance” is not what it is about, we as humans need to maintain a healthy harmony on a spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical level. I began to meet and study with an incredible array of inspiring people who incorporate different modalities and teachings into their lives by tapping into their purpose. I now know my purpose is to help others lead empowered lives and achieve new heights. I continue to work within the world of logistics as there is a deep need in this industry to support and provide resources to empower its members. At the same time, I open my doors to others who are feeling stuck/confused/or just not themselves, and would like a friendly hand to support them in reaching new heights.
I am currently certified as a Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Master Practitioner in Mental and Emotional Release ® , a Master Clinical Hypnotherapist, and a Success Coach. I believe that continual education and awareness of different teachings are important to my growth as an individual and as a professional, and I strive to incorporate the best of all modalities into my work with clients.
I look forward to helping you live an empowered life.
