I missed the mark...πŸ˜ͺ

Uncategorized Oct 17, 2023

Hey there!

I hope you're doing well. ❀

Today, we're diving into a topic that's close to my heart...

Facing Challenges Head-On

Have you ever felt like you absolutely nailed something, only to receive feedback that leaves you questioning your own abilities? That's exactly what happened to me recently when I gave a speech at Purdue University in front of 2,000 students. The speech, which I believed was inspiring and impactful, didn't align with the expectations of the team that rated it a 3 out of 10.

It's an odd feeling when you put your heart and soul into something, and it doesn't quite hit the mark. But hey, that's part of life, right? We all face moments of self-doubt, and we all encounter obstacles. The key is how we deal with them.

What I Did to Bounce Back?

I turned to my "What if it all goes right" mindset to navigate this situation:

πŸ‘‰ Acknowledge Your Feelings: It's okay to feel disappointed, angry, and upset when things don't go as planned. It's part of the human experience. Embrace those feelings, but don't let them define you.

πŸ‘‰ Focus on What You Can Control: While I couldn't redo the talk, I could take control of my future performances. I started by asking even more in-depth questions before speaking engagements to better understand the organizers' expectations. Then, I provide them with a detailed outline and confirmation to ensure we're on the same page.

πŸ‘‰ Embrace the Process: Remember, setbacks are part of the journey to becoming the best version of yourself. Adversity can be a powerful teacher. Use these moments to learn and grow as a speaker, athlete, or whatever you're passionate about.

And just recently, I had the privilege again of sharing my insights and experiences during a podcast interview. You can listen to it here. I hope it resonates with you and inspires you to face your challenges head-on.

Remember, you are stronger than you think, and there's no obstacle you can't overcome. Keep pushing forward, and don't let anything or anyone hold you back. Together, we're unstoppable!

Nikita came in with a goal of just ONE Pull-up and in 6 weeks she left with THREE! 😎

When completing the program she started with Track 1- Started for the Bottom. She is now continuing on to Track 2 so that she can continue to progress to hit that 10-12 Strict Pull-up Goal πŸ₯³

Discovering the significance of Magnesium was a game-changer, especially realizing that many supplements I used weren't effective. With involvement in 600+ biochemical reactions, Magnesium is crucial, yet soil deficiencies mean 80% lack it in their diets. Even common supplements often fall short. That's where BIOptimizers' Magnesium Breakthrough steps in – offering all seven magnesium types, benefiting diverse tissues for comprehensive health advantages. After six months of personal use, I've witnessed its impact on sleep and recovery. I've referred my 1:1 clients to use it and now I am pumped to be working with them!
