Mr. Cabrera learned some tough lessons early in his life. As a Latino, he was reared in a predominately segregated community in north Texas. Except for his parents, he always had the feeling that no one cared. The system certainly didn't challenge him to be expressive nor think about setting goals. He was even told that “his’ kind” don’t go to college. Instead, he experienced bitter rejection and prejudice from a society that labeled him "different." Eventually he realized that though you cannot forget the past and the pain…you can forgive, learn from it, and move on. In overcoming damaged emotions and rejection, he learned how to turn all the negatives into POSITIVE learning experiences. Not allowing obstacles and challenges to become crutches…but stepping stones to ensure success. To always remember that Attitude is Everything… ¡Sí Se Puede!
His book, “What’s In Your Backpack? Packing for Success in Life” – Spanish version: “¿Qué Llevas En Tu Mochila? Empácala Para Tener Una Vida De Éxito” is a book that outlines eight powerful success tools anyone can apply to their life…regardless of each person’s personal definition of “success.”
