This trilingual Cuban New Yorker who originally wanted to be a psychologist, has worked in the financial services industry for many years, starting out on the trading floor. But don’t be fooled, he is definitely not your typical ‘corporate suit’ and has also been an actor, and made it on to Australian Ninja Warrior.
In this episode we delve into why Will believes that growing up in the melting pot of New York city culture gave him a unique perspective on his own self-awareness and of how to appreciate that not everyone views things the same way.
Now knowing his CliftonStrengths profile has created a language around that understanding, which he uses to his full advantage to be able to excel in every role that he takes.
We discuss why not believing in yourself and having limiting doubts in your own ability is the number one factor why someone ‘doesn’t make it’ or achieve their true potential and how imposter syndrome really does lead to self-sabotage.
Will believes strongly in the mindset that breaking down large goals into smaller milestones means that even if you don’t get to the ultimate end, you’ve been on a journey, and you’ve grown as a person throughout the process and how he’s used this process to recover from injuries and to approach the training for Australian Ninja Warrior.
A fascinating chat, with a fascinating person who has successfully blended many, seemingly disparate areas into a unique career and approach to life.
….because remember, global change starts with individual momentum
