    67 - Gabriela Lopez- Building a Life from the Foundation, Up

    67 - Gabriela Lopez- Building a Life from the Foundation, Up

    At 18, Gabriela Lopez, ran away from her family who realistically speaking, she says, “are very old school type. Their thinking is like: a girl stays at home, gets married and that's what she does.” So, Gabi said to herself, 'that's not her way to live, everyone looks so miserable in that kind of living'.
    She moved to LA with $10 in her pocket and into an apartment with 8 dudes from high school. “It was the funniest and craziest time of her life.” She said.
    She set out to build a solid and pure foundation but just on her own terms. Of course it was very difficult to go through all the challenges she was putting herself in.
    Now, Lopez is a fitness fanatic. And, today she is chasing the dream of becoming a superstar fitness trainer. She is also into acting. And not to mention, she's soaring in the social influence space with an Instagram following of 97K.
    What We Talk About
    What does pressure mean? What is Gabi's definition of pressure? What are good and bad pressures? What has been the anchor for Gabi to constantly pursue growth, what was the ignition to move in the right direction and not give up as a woman Who/what are the reasons for 90% of everything Gabi does and why she works so hard What was the reason for Gabi to put so much emphasis on her fitness For folks that are stuck and not working out, what can they do to start building their own path to success How do men or women if they're dating and having these breakups, equip themselves from not ruining themselves completely What is the best definition for accountability What difference has it made for Gabi building the social influence that she has today? and a community of people that like, trust, follow and expect certain things from her? What are Gabi's suggestions for women to be more confident What's the next big thing in store for Gabi, what else is on the agenda now that it sounds like she got her identity back What would affect the sensitivity sensor in Gabi's life Actionable Quotes
    We perform better under deadlines
    At the end of the day you are the reason for 90% of your consequences because you put yourself in these situations
    You need to be okay to do things without needing someone to validate your choice
    After a workout-- that high and the endorphins flowing through the body, there's nothing compared, nothing can give you that kind of joy
    Of working out--- it's not about the physical, it's the mental  
    If you're going to mess up, which is inevitable---pick it up, learn from it and don't do that again
    If your foundation is solid, anything else that comes to you you're going to be able to give it and keep going because your foundation is so strong
    The fear being alone keeps a lot of people in really bad relationships
    If you really want something sincere and beautiful, your approach needs to be soft
    People aren't getting opportunities because of a lack of intelligence or a lack of education and knowledge
    The creativity that spurs from working out ---the ideas and the possibilities and the imaginative flow it's endless so that's another purpose for working out

    How are things different today: what adjustments is Brian still using to improve the outcome for the people that come to his events
    What are the dots that are to be connected
    Was there a point in Brain's life where he was tested to let himself away far from his identity
    What would it take to reach that level of success, just in 1 word according to Brian

    “We have so many God-given talents that are there to be utilized”   Brian Forte
