“You Get One Life And Settling For Anything Less Than Your Dream Lifestyle Is Just Crazy.” – Gus Lopez

Never Giving Up And Believing In Yourself Pays Off...

I know this is not an easy job. What drives you?

What drives me every single day are my “whys.” This is the key to never giving up, you have to have something bigger than yourself. See, growing up being raised by a single mom, money was always an issue. I remember growing up and watching her struggle to provide for me and my sister. I remember promising myself that one day I would make so much money that she would be set for life and that I was going to help people do the same. I was going to help people create their dream business/lifestyle so that they could provide for their families and live an extremely fulfilled life. I see people every single day settle for a life they’re simply not happy with when they have so much potential. I made it my purpose to help people chase their dreams and go after their dream life through my personal brand.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? What lesson did you learn from them?

Honestly, my family has been extremely supportive. I remember thinking how my mom never gave up through those hard times with us and that’s why I can’t ever give up on myself. My family has given me unconditional love and has supported my goals and dreams even when there have been tough times.

How do you push through your worst times?

I believe in myself, even at the hardest times when I’m at the lowest of the low. I know that I have the skills, the dedication, the courage, and persistence to get through it because I know that I can’t give up because of my “whys.” I visualize good things, wealth, success, abundance, and just keep believing and taking action in the direction that I’m going. I remember thinking “This is only temporary, I will get through this.” Positive thinking and massive action goes a long way.
