There was a moment in your life when you were in rehab where you told God, if He doesn't do something with you, you're gonna kill yourself. Share with us what led you to that point and what God's response was...


I have had the honor of interviewing Dr. Peter Rios, a distinguished bilingual speaker, organizational consultant, and leadership coach with over 20 years of experience in leadership development across various industries. Dr. Peter has consulted at renowned institutions, including Harvard University.

Dr. Peter’s passion for leadership, personal development, and organizational change stems from his own transformational journey after overcoming significant childhood trauma. Alongside his spouse, Dr. Ruby Gonzalez-Rios, he is committed to building and developing individuals to maximize their potential and live healthy, fulfilled lives.


What we unpack


During our conversation, Dr. Peter opens up about his challenging upbringing in the projects and the traumatic experiences that shaped his early life. Raised in the Christian faith by his grandmother, Dr. Peter drifted away during his teenage years, leading to a period of struggle and self-discovery. He shares a pivotal moment in his life when he reached a breaking point in rehab, pleading with God for intervention—a moment that marked the beginning of his incredible transformation.

Dr. Peter’s journey from the projects to earning a Ph.D. and becoming a consultant for Harvard University is a testament to the power of faith, resilience, and a growth mindset. He discusses the mindset shifts and disciplined actions that propelled him towards his dream life, emphasizing the importance of overcoming limiting beliefs and embracing a growth-oriented perspective.


Your encounter with Jesus resulted in a complete 180 in your life. But you didn't just wake up the next day as a consultant for Harvard University. What had to happen in you and in the steps you took that led you from the projects to PhD, where you're now an acclaimed author, traveling the world, living your dream life and impacting people and organizations as you do it?

Dr Peter's response to the above question will blow your mind.


Highlight of discussion


One of the highlights of our discussion is Dr. Peter’s book, "Maximize," which he is currently promoting on his book tour. The book offers valuable insights and practical advice for anyone looking to achieve their fullest potential and lead a purpose-driven life. Dr. Peter shares what readers can expect from the book and where they can get their hands on it.


In conclusion


As we conclude our conversation, Dr. Peter delivers a powerful message to those who resonate with his story and are inspired to turn their lives around. He emphasizes the transformative power of faith in Jesus and encourages listeners to embrace the opportunity for a new beginning.

This interview is a reminder that no matter where you come from or what challenges you face, with determination, hard work, and faith in God, you can achieve anything you set your mind to. As Philippians 4:12-13 says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Dr. Peter’s life exemplifies this truth, showing us that with the right mindset and faith, transformation is possible.

For me personally, I came out of this discussion with a sense that there really is NO EXCUSE for each and every one of us to live a fulfilled life.
