“Life isn’t always the way you think it’s gonna be and how you pivot, how you shift from it, makes all the difference.” – Armando Cruz
Daring World of Adventure
Armando views the world from a different lens. To him, adventure is an opportunity to extract wonder from each experience that life has to offer. It motivates him both as a father as a coach.
It was not always the same thing for Armando. Growing up, he learned that anything is possible through hard work. Little did he know that his perspective was going to change.
“I was missing everything that was happening because I was working so hard to start life, not realizing that I was living it right there.” – Armando Cruz
All his attention was geared towards earning a Master’s degree at a particular university. When things failed, he came to a halt and questioned the purpose of all his hard work. He realized that he was just allowing life to pass by.
