Very rarely do we put knowledge into learning how to live better, how to grow, and that can be learned.
Because everything is a language and the language of Good Luck can be learned to speak.
— Alex Rovira
Alex Rovira (@alexroviracelma) is an entrepreneur, international lecturer and trainer, and has published 18 books that have sold more than ten million copies worldwide, including the best-seller “Good luck”.
In addition, Álex is passionate about psychology and personal development, and is possibly one of the people who has spent the most time reflecting on what it means to lead “a good life”.
In this interview, Álex and I cover his entire career, from his beginnings as a Business Science student to today, when he is an author and speaker of recognized prestige, and we talk about topics as interesting as…
- What did Álex do to lose his fear of public speaking when he started working as a teacher?
- How Álex came up with the idea of publishing the book “La Buena Suerte” and how he was able to write it in just 8 hours
- Why does Álex distinguish between 2 types of luck and what is the difference between them?
- What role does Álex think luck plays when it comes to creating a life that suits you?
- Or what are the most important values, attitudes and habits that you must develop according to Álex to create your Good Luck
This is one of the most philosophical and in-depth interviews I’ve ever recorded, because Álex is someone who has read a lot, thought a lot, and spent a lot of time getting to know himself and asking himself tough questions, so I think you’re going to love it. .
But hey, I prefer not to anticipate anything else and let you discover it yourself, so without further ado I leave you with the great Álex Rovira.
