Are you on a journey or on a mission? There is nothing wrong with being on either one. But it’s good to be clear on which path you are on. If you are on a journey, you are easily moved by distractions. Life is unpredictable so it’s  difficult to keep promises to yourself when time gets away from you. However when you are on a mission you have a deep why….and nothing can stop you.

Ep 102 Kirstie Ennis - USMC Gunner Amputee and Paralympic Snowboarder - Keep Going After The Big Mountains

IG Kirstie Quote (1).jpg

In the midst of tragedy, it is difficult to understand the good that can come of it. We often hear stories of those who have endured unthinkable trials and have not only lived through them but found their purpose within them. How can we too learn from those who have risen above their circumstances when we are faced with our own adversity?

Listen to the podcast HERE

IG Kirstie Quote (3).jpg


This week we are speaking with former marine gunner, Kirstie Ennis, who suffered intensive injuries including a leg amputation after her helicopter crashed. In this episode, we discuss how she not only overcame her obstacles but went on to create a non-profit organization, climb mountains, and become an adventure athlete. Kirstie truly believes in the philosophy that we have to be uncomfortable to grow and look for situations to push ourselves.  She encourages us to look at how far we’ve come rather than where we still have to go.

Questions I Asked:

  • Did you feel stripped of your identity?

  • What types of workouts do you perform to prepare for the mountains?

  • Did setting goals pull you through rehab?

IG Kirstie Quote (2).jpg


Topics Discussed:

  • Coming back from a devastating tragedy.

  • Continuing when people tell you that you shouldn’t.

Creating Confidence and a Positive Environment

 

Does your environment support or take away from your confidence? Do you have friends who lift you up and fan the flame in your life? I believe it is so important to surround yourself with the right people. It can be the key between you succeeding and not. I am so passionate about this subject that I dedicated this full episode to discuss how to create confidence by building a positive environment.

We have had so many incredible guests on the Sisterhood of Sweat but these seven clips really stood out to me as the most powerful segments on the topic of confidence. Keep this quote in mind while you listen, “Self confidence is a super power. Once you start to believe in yourself magic starts happening”. Enjoy listening!
