You Can Recover


Are you Tired of Being Tired? Exhausted? Feeling Miserable? Stressed? High Anxiety? Overwhelmed?

I know the feelings.  I have been there myself.  My struggles and my addictions were with gambling and alcohol.  I know I needed help but where should I go?  This is where people hesitate.  I went to 12 Step rooms.  I also went to therapy.  They worked but took too long.  Years instead of Months.  Recovery is a process but it doesn’t need to be a slow process.  I worked The Steps diligently and it took 20 months.  I was in therapy every week for seven years.  I was willing to work and did the work, yet it took too long and cost too much.  There had to be a better way and a quicker way.

I have now been in recovery for over 25 years.  I have done, said and watched many people get confused, take years to finish or not finish the Steps and to struggle with their emotions.  To me Recovery is Beautiful and everyone should understand it easily.  People like you, notice you have problems, so the solution needs to be easy to comprehend and implement.  I agree.  Time and Money are always a concern with most people so they delay in seeking help.  Believing and Thinking that they can solve it alone before spending money or wasting time.  Unfortunately, you can’t do this alone and you end up delaying which causes you to waste time and money.  I tried and it didn’t work.  So many followed the same path with the same result.  They couldn’t do it alone.  We all believe our intelligence will solve it.  It doesn’t.  I now say, You can not out think an emotional issue

My background: I went to a Jesuit high school, got a BBA from UT at Austin and a MBA from Rice University so I should be able to figure this out.  I couldn’t.  You see, Your EQ is Your IQ.  Not the other way around.  Society, our families and the school system never taught any of us about emotional intelligence, that is why we struggle with feelings and relationships.  Life is about Feelings.  The world needs to get to know the real you.

V. Rodriguez

Hugo is phenomenal at engaging with his audience; putting aside the fact that he is a tall man with a big voice, his tone and inflexions, the choice of words, the relevance of the messages and the coherence of his presentations make it a pleasure to listen to, and he is also fully bilingual, an added feature to his skillset.  

Hugo possesses a panoply of the qualities most coveted in a speaker, most notably: a strong voice, impeccable diction, well-developed sense of humor, impressive manner, and an ability to tell an impactful story for every occasion. But perhaps his standout attribute is a razor-sharp analytical mind and hence a capacity to distill the most complex issues and present them in an easy to digest format.  Which is why the statuesque Hugo is unquestionably a very worthy speaker.

I have heard Hugo present the steps a few times.  I have been in recovery for 52 years for my gambling addiction.  I have heard this done many times and never heard anyone do it better than the way Hugo does it.
