I was born and raised in Spain. I moved to Los Angeles when I was 23 to study film and business, two of my passions. My family and I live between the US, Spain, and Thailand.
What inspired you to author this book?
My own struggle. One
day, I was in my one-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles when my mother called to
inform me that she had stage IV cancer. Being the only child in the family, I
took the first plane back home. During this time taking care of my mother, I,
for the first time in my life, got in touch with my own mortality. I asked
myself, “If I were in the last hour of my last day, what would be the things I
would have liked to have achieved in my life for me to say, “I lived an
extraordinary life.” From that moment on, I redesigned my life accordingly.
Since I couldn’t afford any expensive mentorship programs on how to become successful, not only in business but also in life, I went to the place where I could get access to all the best mentorship for free: the public library. After reading hundreds of biographies and books on mindset, mastery, business, science, health, fitness, spirituality, finances, personal relationships, and happiness, and, by much trial and error, I created a simple guide for me to live an extraordinary life according to my own value system.
After seeing first-hand how these routines, rituals, and habits have positively impacted our life, I was like, “I need to share these with others!” I realized that living an extraordinary life is simple. It’s not easy, but it’s very simple. Its secrets have been around for hundreds of years and have been applied by Titans throughout history. “A Titan Life” curates said secrets, so it can save others from the years of pain and aimless wandering I went through and from having to read those many biographies and books! Paraphrasing Steve Jobs, it’s my way to make my dent in the universe.
Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?
I knew I wanted to have a bodhi tree, as this is the place where, according to history, Buddha became enlightened. But the rest of the design is to the designer’s credit.
Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?
Personally, my mother;
she was not only a caring and loving mother but also an extraordinary human
being who was always trying to improve other people’s lives.
As a writer, even though there are many writers whose work I admire, Paulo Coelho has definitely been the author who has impacted my life the most. When I was younger, I didn’t like reading. I was more into sports and girls. But thanks to Coelho’s masterpiece “The Alchemist,” I realized that it was not that I didn’t like reading. I just didn’t like reading the stuff I was forced to read at school. So “The Alchemist” made me love reading, and it is thanks to my love for reading that I have been able to change my life for the better, both personally and professionally.
What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?
Many!! Like with any Titan achievement (whether it is writing a book, building a successful company, becoming an elite athlete,...), you will face MANY struggles and obstacles along the way! It is how you process these struggles and obstacles that will determine whether you will be successful or not. Struggles and obstacles are beautiful because they always teach us lessons. And after you reflect and learn your lesson, you try again from a different angle. So struggles and obstacles always make you grow!
Tell your readers about your book.
You only have one life to live. This one! If you are happy with the way your life is going, please keep doing what you’re doing. But if a small voice inside of you says, “There must be a better way,” then I encourage you to read “A Titan Life.” I went through the process of reading the biographies of Titans throughout history and distilled and curated their secrets for you!
Who is your target audience, and why?
Anyone who is interested in living an extraordinary life. It’s never too late to start living your Titan Life!
What do you consider your greatest success in life?
My family. Warren Buffett defined success as ‘Do the people you care about love you back?’”. I think this is as good a metric as you will find.
What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?
Who I am. My own journey. This is why I say, especially to younger people, don’t try to imitate others. The most important gift you can give to others is your unique self. In words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “The greatest gift is a portion of thyself.” This book is a portion of myself.
