ALEX VILLEGAS worked in Corporate America for around 10 years, for a couple of different fortune 500 companies. Because of his time in Corporate America, he knows from experience how demanding and stressful it can be. After that, Alex co-owned a Transformational Fitness company located in Coconut Grove, FL that specialized in life coaching, nutrition, and personal training.

Alex is the Founder and President of Organic Work Environments. Organic Work Environments is about teaching professionals how to optimize their minds and busy work lives through Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Techniques.

Our mission is to change the way we perceive and feel about work. In changing our attitudes about our present moments, we create more awareness and clarity in our day, which opens us up to being happy, connected, productive, and fueled by our purpose in life.

In this episode we talk about:

  • How Alex has transformed (or blown up, depending on how you look at it) his life multiple times over – all in service of following his life purpose.
  • How the money, job, home, and beautiful don’t necessarily equal happiness.
  • How authenticity and heart will get you anything you desire in life.

Quotes from this episode:

I’m here in this moment. I don’t want to know any other moment.

The difference between a master and a beginner is that the master has tried more times than the beginner has ever tried.

In suppressing your feelings you’re not allowing yourself to grow.
