KEY TAKEAWAYS


      • Overcome Your Own Negativity Bias:  Did you know our brains actually have a negativity bias? By practicing more positive daily thoughts, you can re-wire your brain to become better at thinking more positively. And positive thinking yields possibilities unlike negative thinking which limits creativity. Exercise the brain like you would the rest of your body.
      • Anchor Management: How you see things is more important than what you see. We ask you to re-frame small challenges to help solve big challenges, to ask yourself new questions to get new answers. By doing this, you are reframing your “anchor” to a new perspective.   
      • Detach to Reattach: Learn how to detach from plan A as the best way to open up your mind to the next possibility. It’s rare when things go as planned. Disruption happens to everyone in life and at work. Learning how to detach from what you thought had to be true is a surefire way to be able to reattach to other potential outcomes and find multiple paths to success.
      • Control Your Thoughts – For No Cost!: Not many things are free in this world. Actively changing your own perspective is the cheapest and easiest way to change how you feel about your situation. Unleashing this new thinking technique also unleashes your ability to solve new problems.

Biography

I lived what most would describe as a normal life. Until I didn’t. On August 10, 2013, my life changed forever. While on vacation, I was in a tragic boating accident where I lost my left leg, suffered extreme injuries to my right leg and lost temporary function of my right arm. As I was recovering in the hospital, I started writing a blog to share my step by step story. At first it was for purely functional reasons. I simply didn’t want my husband and parents to endure the burden of telling the story over and over again.

But in the days, weeks and months to follow, I realized there was a healing power in telling my story. There was inspiration and actionable ideas to be found in what I was facing and dealing with day in and day out. There was clarity among the chaos. That blog organically attracted over 30,000 visitors and made me realize the opportunity we all have to share our stories in an effort to help people find their inner strength in tackling whatever life brings.

I hope telling my story also inspires the next generation of leaders, including our young children, Mitchell & Morgan. My husband Aaron and I get to watch their amazing stories unfold every day. Thank you for being open to learning from my story. I am constantly humbled to hear how my experiences have helped others. It makes it all worth it.
