Barbara Palacios, Miss Universe 1986, banked on her beauty queen reputation to gain the attention of potential readers and fans for a Spanish language book she published recently in the United States. In La belleza de saber vivir 9 pasos para conducir tu vida (Grupo Nelson, $14.99) she shares insights about her philosophy of life and the importance of religion in her life.

The 224-page hardcover book is divided into nine chapters, one for each of the nine steps she proposes her readers follow to live a fulfilling and faith oriented life: La Aceptación, El Enfoque, El Equilibrio, El Liderazgo, El Optimismo, La Gratitud, El perdon, La Dignidad and La Fe. The chapters represent what she considers life’s important paths: acceptance, vision, balance, leadership, optimism, gratitude, forgiveness, dignity and faith.

According to her biography, Palacios’ business ventures include several advertising agencies. She also leads her own company, BP Group featuring her own line of jewelry, beauty products and several stores that bear her name across the United States. The motivational speaker lives in Miami with her husband and two sons.
