||CleanThe Olympic Mindset: Overcoming Adversity with Kara Winger||Kara Winger has competed 3x in the Olympic games for Team USA as a women's javelin thrower. Her longevity in the sport has spanned over a decade of elite performance and is unmatched in her event. Throughout her career in a demanding sport, Kara has learned the skills to THRIVE mentally, physically, and emotionally as she has faced obstacles, adversity, and injury. We discuss: When and how Kara knew that her goal was to go to the Olympic games How to have a healthy and vibrant relationship as a pro athlete Finding balance in a lifestyle that demands total dedication Her development as a mental athlete and how to cultivate the mindset of a champion A day-in-the-life of an elite athlete The business of being an elite athlete - sponsor relationships, social media, and how to stay true to yourself while using your platform for the greater good The Olympic games experience from an athletes perspective - from walking in the opening ceremonies, to meeting other high profile athletes, to witnessing history as a fan and spectator and much more... I really enjoyed this conversation and could have easily continued chatting with Kara. She's down-to-earth but has the swagger of someone who knows what she's capable of. My key take-aways from our conversation: Focusing on improvement over time vs. other people's goals leads to success and fulfillment Compartmentalizing life and finding balance outside of your primary focus (work, athletics, etc) leads to more focused effort and greater efficiency The importance of communication - with your partner, team, coaches, etc - for breaking through mental barriers and achieving the next level of success Resources: Beijing opening ceremony 2008 Kara's Facebook page Kara's Instagram Kara's Twitter Maddie Dog's Instagram Olympians For Public Lands Kara's website Kara's favorite podcasts: TED Radio Hour, Skimm'd from The Couch, Believed||1/1/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanAscending to a Higher Perspective: Lessons from India with Heather Felde||Heather Felde is physical therapist, athlete, and world traveler who owns and operates Ascend Physical Therapy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Her unique focus in manual therapy centers on an individualized approach that gets to the root of the problem and has taken her across the world to teach, train, and practice. Motivated by the opportunity to gain a new perspective, Heather stepped away from a new and growing practice for 6 months to experience life and practice in the Far East. This leap of faith took her to Delhi, India where she treated patients, taught manual therapy techniques, and explored the rich landscape and culture of Nepal and India. From the summit of Mount Everest to the foot of Pikes Peak, Heather has worked tirelessly to provide the Colorado Springs community with opportunity to Ascend to new heights of health and human performance. We discuss: • Why Heather saw a need for a patient-centered approach to physical therapy in our community • How her unique focus led to international opportunity • How being overwhelmed in a foreign land led to a mindfulness practice • The unique experience of being a minority in a new and unfamiliar culture • Tips for optimal sleep and why it is important for tissue repair and overall well-being Heather and I also provide a brief “behind the scenes” look into the values, perspectives, and business aspects of going into solo practice. This candid part of the conversation explores the real-world sacrifices and challenges that go into providing high quality care with integrity and a patient-centered approach. Heather shares some very insightful perspectives from her time in India that I think you’ll find not only interesting, but thought provoking.
