Every month I will be interviewing women from around the world who are an inspirational to not only me but others.
This month I will be interviewing the gorgeous Isabel Palacios. I discovered her on Youtube a while back and fell in love with how wise and real she is. Whenever I feel un motivated or need a pep talk to myself, I watch her videos because she’s forever uplifting and real .
Lets get on to the interview:
1. How old are you?
*Drake voice* I’m 23 with a money tree.
2. What inspires/motivates you?
My motivation and inspiration comes from the vision I have of my future and the constant competition I have with the past me. I am also greatly inspired by my travels and the desire to be so free that I can travel wherever I want, whenever I want.
”When people ask me what I do, I always struggle to answer the question. I don’t have a regular job, in fact I would describe myself as an entrepreneur.”
3.You speak a lot about LOA, how did you get into it?
As I stated before, I went through a lot of difficulty just a few years ago. I actually came across The Secret in a Youtube video’s comment section. I watched the movie on Netflix and it resonated with me so much that I decided to delve in deeper and learn more. I was able to manifest so many wonderful things at this time! I embodied it as best as I could in my everyday life in the beginning, but then I went through a very difficult time part way through college. Dealing with depression, anxiety, and a horrible turn of events left me very disinterested in positive thinking and I stopped believing in the Law of Attraction. Of course, since the Universe ALWAYS mirrors back what energy you give out, things just got progressively worse. It wasn’t until a little over year ago that I decided to stop letting the negativity have control over me and take control of my life again. I was no longer going to be a victim of these circumstances and I decided to get back into the Law of Attraction. I haven’t looked back since!
4.What is one advice you would give to your future self?
When the going gets rough, keep going. If you can survive what you went through in the past, you can survive anything!
”I realized that all these years I held the true power over my life and other things could not affect my mind unless I allowed them to.”
5.Do you have a favourite quote?
I’m obsessed with quotes! Just go through my Instagram; I usually post them or use them as captions in my pictures. My mantra however is “It’s all rigged; everything’s in your favor.” It’s in my Instagram bio to remind others and to mostly remind myself. I truly believe that whatever good or bad happens in your life, it always works out in your favor in the end.
”They should embrace and cultivate these beautiful things.”
6.How do you get out of a funk/rut?
I have an entire video on my channel dedicated to getting out of a rut because it’s such an important topic. I believe changing something is key. Either changing your routine, rearranging your furniture, meditating, or dying your hair a new color are all ways to switch your mindset. It’s also important to take time to do something you LOVE and what will reignite your passion. Go for a massage, take a spontaneous trip, or just go for a run outside instead of the gym. I also love new books or watching an inspiring movie that will leave me with some kind of lesson. When you first get in a rut, it’s important to do your best to get out of it. One day you may wake up and realize you’ve been in a rut for 5 years. Don’t let it consume you.
”Upon discovering the Law of Attraction and what it means to truly grow and become the best version of yourself.”
7.Who are you most inspired by?
I’m honestly inspired by anyone that doesn’t fit societal standards, but decides to hustle hard for their dreams and visions instead. Just to name a few people that inspire me: Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Sophia Amoruso, Candice Neistat, Casey Neistat, and Gary Vaynerchuk. My big brother is probably my biggest inspiration, though.
”I just want all people to realize that they have their own kind of beauty, talents & attributes that are all working in their favour”
8.When was the last time you did something you were afraid of?
Traveling alone. A lot of things can go wrong. But you always have to trust in yourself and the Universe.
