Reasons Why Peter ‘The Bronx Warrior’ Liciaga Is So Successful

Blog Image 001a - Body By Roe

Your’s truly, Peter ‘The Bronx Warrior’ Liciaga, has reached greater success than most kids from the Bronx could ever have imagined.

Being a professional performing artist in dance, theater, TV and film has afforded me the opportunity to entertain tens of thousands of people around the world. After many years being a performing artist and a successful martial artist, my experience and passion for personal and professional success has allowed me to branch off and find success in anything I put my mind to. However, there are many reasons why I rose out of the streets to the fame and success that I am blessed to enjoy.

Read on for a look into how I have become so successful.

Peter “The Bronx Warrior” Liciaga’s Success

I Use My Personal Energy

Whether I’m in public, speaking at a school or working on a film or theater project, I always strive to inspire, motivate and encourage everyone that is around me. I learned many years ago that if you want people to appreciate you you must appreciate them, and show them by always being a positive force. Without question, I want to be a positive force.

I Maintain A Competitive Nature

Being competive has always been a driving force behind my success. Everything that I do, I will put my all into it whether it be martial arts, running a business, directing, working on a fight sequence or acting.

Blog Image 002 - Body By RoeI will always strive to be the hardest worker in the room.

If people are not willing to work hard, they will not achieve their dreams and reach the personal best in success.

I Strive To Be Very Entertaining

Working with such talented people in the entertainment industry has taught me that personality has a lot to do with success, especially in acting. I always try to find a way to relate to my audiences and fans. Whether it be my passion in my key note speaches or my smile, I am always looking for ways to make the audience more involved. I strive to be the best at getting everyone to root for me simply because I am approachable and likable.

Liciaga Family 2aI Have A Successful Family Life

My family has a lot to do with me getting and staying focused, intelligent and on track to being successful and reaching my goals. My wife, Renee, also highly successful as a performing artist and choreographer, keeps me on my toes. My kids, both of whom have experienced being in front of the camera and on stage, are a neverending reminder of the importance of me being a real role model for them. They also keep me mindful of the importance of my legacy. I want my kids to always know that I will always be there for them, no matter what.

By the way, my wife and I will be celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary this November. :)

I Follow My Dreams

Everything in life has a purpose for me. No matter what my dreams were, overcoming the gang life, ballet, martial arts, filmmaking or acting, I do extremely well because I wasn’t afraid to follow my dreams. Without the drive to succeed and be the best, I might not have ever excelled the way I have (or do).

Growing up in the streets and without positive role models, I had to overcome some overwhelming obstacles. I made a lot of stupid choices. Many of them were devastating to me and the one thing that I would fall back on is this desire to never give up and work my ass off to and overcome whatever the circumstance was.

I would hours upon hours learning and training to become the best me I could be. I always knew that my circumstances will only get better if I got better!

I Find Mentors

I had a rough childhood and was involved with gangs. I lived in the streets for a year and ran aimlessly wild until I was 17 years old. He definitely was headed down a wrong path and needed an immediate change. Fortunately, a neighborhood family reached out to me and took me in. I found a martial arts teacher and started me on a path to doing something productive and positive with my life.

To this day, I am always seeking out mentors, coaches, trainers and teachers. They help keep me focused and grounded as well as informed on what I need to work to get to my next level of success.

Dinotos and Liciaga 1I Surround Myself With Great People

My decision to become friends with good, positive and motivated people has changed my life dramatically. If I would have stayed with the same crowd, I might have ended in jail or dead. I knew that certain aspects of my life had to change, so I cut out all of the bad, negative and destructive people in my life (including family members.)

I Take Risks

Taking risks has enabled me to venture from the streets to ballet to acting to being an entreprenuer. If I wasn’t successful in ballet, I might have passed up my success in musical theater and acting. All the successes I experience in the many professions I endeavor have come from my willingness to take risks.

My hope and prayer is that I would be an inspiration to everyone. The decisions I have made in my life, especially the decision to NEVER GIVE UP, are what has led me to my successes. Oftentimes, my life took a turn for the worse and the end of one endeavor became a turning point and defining moment for the beginning of another incredible adventure. Instead of giving up, I dedicate myself to aiming high and becoming the best of the best at whatever I needed to do at that moment in my life.

PETER LICIAGA: NO MORE MR. NICE GUY

Peter Liciaga actor split images 1

Three options were open to me as a youth growing up in the South Bronx – gang member, prison or death, or so I thought.

Being half Puerto Rican and half Spanish, along with my athletic abilities and warriors spirit to survive, I opted to step out of the box and create my own options.

If you were to do a Google search of my name, Peter Liciaga, you would see that my body of work would include educator, entrepreneur, martial arts master, public speaker, youth motivational speaker, construction worker, ballet dancer, musical theater performer and film/TV actor.

The career path that I connect with the most is that of an actor. I love making believe and pretending I’m other people. I love telling stories.

I am currently in hardcore training for upcoming film and TV roles.

The roles that I am preparing for are not so nice and they are very VERY physical. I wouldn’t necessarily call them bad guys. I would call them antangonists. Most of the projects that I will be doing will be rated PG13 or R.”

So if you are looking for me to play some nice guy, you will be very disappointed.

However, if you are looking for me to portray some badass kickass roles, then stay tuned…

Training and Preparing for KickA$$ Roles

 

Kickass training 1

I am reading scripts and preparing for roles for characters that are not going to be very nice guys. So those of you that know me well, get ready for some kicka$$ changes in my blogging, video productions, images, etc.

Think and do

Think it through

I could spend years and years figuring out how to take three steps at once. Or I can simply take one step, and then the next, and then the next.

Being able to think things through is a tremendously valuable skill. But I will not let all that thinking prevent me from doing.

Sometimes it pays to think of a more efficient or effective or faster way to complete the task. Other times I’m better off when I just go ahead and do it.

Analyzing what I must do can be helpful. Yet analysis by itself won’t get the job completed.

After I think it through, I will go ahead and get it done. I will put my clever thinking into action, and I will have something of tangible value to show for it.

I will put my mind to work and I will create great ideas. Then put those ideas to work with my efforts, and bring them successfully to life.

Think and do. Think… and… Do…
