Evolution is at the heart of all successes. Humans were not meant to stay stagnant. We are designed to learn, evolve, and grow, and those who embrace these aspects see tremendous personal and professional success. Growth lies in our approach, and it's all about the mindset. Entrepreneur and creative design expert Vivian Carolina Sanchez explains why we should always be focused on learning and evolving.
Vivian Carolina Sanchez, founder of The Lighting Studio and a civil engineer by education, has had a flourishing and dynamic career. At 40 years old, she has embraced the up and downs and rode the waves of professional and personal change. "We are meant to grow, but that takes work," states Vivian. "To succeed, we have to be willing to learn about ourselves, others, and the world around us."
Since the beginning of her career, Vivian has worked on projects testing her skills as a project manager, structural designer, architect, and designer. "Taking on varied challenges teaches you that there is so much more to any job than just the tasks at hand," explains Vivian. "This, in turn, teaches you that there is so much more to life if you are willing to work for it."
Vivian's experience has taught her that the most successful people are often the most well-rounded. Having to constantly draw on talented individuals for different projects, Vivian looks for people who are eager to learn. "Embracing change is key in everything," states Vivian. "Every situation has the potential to teach us something as long as we let it."
For anyone feeling stuck, Vivian recommends taking a step back to learn and evolve through a fresh perspective. "Too many people mistakenly think they know it all or they don't have time to learn," states Vivian. "That mindset will only hold you back." With a focus on learning and evolving, Vivian Carolina Sanchez continues to pave the way with The Lighting Studio and beyond.
