Samuel Acosta Ynoa is a motivational speaker and author who has encouraged and motivated many to improve their lives. With his unique philosophy about life, he helps people in all walks of life to get what their heart desires. He is the founder and host of Find Your Destiny, an online show dedicated to helping people find their real selves in a way that they can maximize their success in both their personal and professional lives.
He was born in Tenares, Dominican Republic, on January 28, 1989, and raised by his grandmother. He learned many lessons from her such as having discipline, valuing hard work, appreciating life, and setting goals. Those values shaped him into the man that he is today. He came to the United States when he was only sixteen years old and faced many challenges when he first arrived. It was hard for him because he was in a foreign place far from home. He had no friends and did not speak any English at the time. However, those situations did not stop him. As he adjusted to his new life in America, Samuel eventually graduated from Walton High School and went on to college. He was accepted into TCI College of Technology, where he majored in business administration.
While furthering his education at college, he was introduced to a network marketing business and became an independent distributor for a company called USANA. He received much support and guidance from businessmen and women who became his mentors. Samuel also had an interest in hearing and reading about different motivational speakers such as Jim Rohn, Les Brown, and Brian Tracy, among others. They helped him to see the possibility that each one of us has to become more than what we already are.
Samuel knew from a very early age that he had a desire to help people and enjoyed giving advice to his friends. One day, he asked himself, “Why not try to help more people around the world?” That is how his dream of becoming a motivational speaker came about. He began studying the lives and teachings of successful individuals. He read many books, such as Developing the Leader Within You by John C. Maxwell, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, and Toward a Psychology of Being by Abraham Harold Maslow.
He also invested his money in motivational seminars to expand his knowledge and mind. Samuel took his first step toward making his dream come true by creating a YouTube channel, “Samuel Acosta Channel,” in which he describes and explains his innovative system to inspire individuals around the world. His goals didn’t stop there. Samuel continued to challenge himself, and on February 23, 2014, the Samuel’s latest and most exciting project was released, his first live performance as a motivational speaker. He called the event “Find Yourself.” He was proud to share his knowledge based on his personal experiences and presented a unique approach to help his audience find “The Real You.” His dream is to help others to live their dream and leave their mark on the world.
