Bring Those Good Vibrations

Rebecca Hidalgo Rains is a real estate rock star, whose motto is to live every day like you’re on vacation. Her mantra aligns perfectly with the Pursuing Freedom philosophy!

When speaking with a guest on the show, a coaching client, or anyone for that matter, I’m always struck by the visible shift in someone’s entire energy- I love to see when they light up! I see it when they laugh, speak their truth, or talk about something that genuinely excites them. And I saw this in my interview with Rebecca. She is an amazing woman who has weathered many storms and has come out on the other side committed to helping others. I loved having her on the show!

The Choice is Yours

Rebecca provided so many valuable insights on how to be intentional about your mindset. When your authenticity comes through, when you’re overcoming adversity, when times are tough, it’s your choice which way you go. Rebecca shares her story of turning a tsunami of grief into a life of gratitude, and how she regained her zest for life in spite of it all.

We discuss why you shouldn’t put off doing the things that bring you joy for “someday.” It’s important to grab life with both hands in order to create a radical transformation in your business. Rebecca is living proof that everyone can get out there and achieve their dreams.

How Are You Serving?

Many people allow their energy, attention, and emotion to be hijacked by the rest of the world before they’ve even decided how they’re going to manage the light within them. So, according to Rebecca, before we talk about strategy or the number of calls we’re going to make or the number of meetings we’re going to attend, we need to take the time to breathe and ask ourselves how we want to show up in people’s lives — because when you’re committed to serving your community, you bring a vibration that is magnetic.

When you are positive, authentic, and abundant in sharing your knowledge and skills with the people around you, you will find that others naturally flock to you. If you wake up and decide that you’re going to make an impact in people’s lives (and have fun doing it), then the next thing you know, your business will begin to overflow with abundance!

We can’t control external circumstances, but we can control our ability to find positivity and then attract abundance- no matter what’s going on in the outside world.
