Trixie Barretto Esguerra

The Philippines' Vision Board Coach

“I support vision boarding because that’s how you understand how powerful you are when you focus on what you want,” she states. “You are powerful, more than you think you are. There’s one thing in the world that only you can do. You just have to figure it out.”

It takes a special kind of power to be a young woman doing various things: a business called Wrap It Up!, a career in events-hosting, news anchoring via GoodNewsPilipinas.com and her own personal endeavor, vision board party-hosting through Positivitrix.

As fierce as she is, Trixie admits that her greatest obstacle to success is asking herself if she’s good enough. For herself and for the generations after her, she understands that self-doubt is anathema to someone’s bravery. She works to fight this with her advocacy.

In 2010, Trixie became a member of Toastmasters, a nonprofit educational organization on communication and public speaking skills, where she realized she wanted to try hosting. She took a gig in events coordination offered to her by her tita, and realized she loved it. She says her love for vision boards came out of nowhere, but she began working on it through her friends and family’s referrals. She’s now held 76 vision board parties in the Philippines and all over the world.

“I support vision boarding because that’s how you understand how powerful you are when you focus on what you want,” she states. “You are powerful, more than you think you are. There’s one thing in the world that only you can do. You just have to figure it out.”

As fierce as she is, Trixie admits that her greatest obstacle to success is herself when she questions herself and her work—if she’s good enough. She says that as hard as it may be to hear doubts from other people, “Nothing hurts more than telling these lies to yourself.” However, she’s gotten better over the years at telling herself that she doesn’t have to believe these limiting thoughts, through the help of a great support system that involves her mother, Chiqui, who encouraged her to do whatever she set her heart upon and told her that what she’s doing is important to the society.

“The way things go is, before you love yourself, you compare yourself to other people, and you go through the struggle, and that’s the only time you learn how to love yourself more.” She now aims to take Positivitrix to a higher level, whether through inviting new coaches or reaching out to more people. Moving forward can carry many different challenges, but Trixie knows that she can handle all of them. For herself and for the generations after her, she understands that self-doubt hinders one’s bravery. She works to fight this with her advocacy.
