Ep. 71 Shownotes: STRONG–When You’re on the Platform All Alone | IMPACT Q&A

Have you ever gone so deep that you had to put every ounce of effort into overcoming a gut-wrenching challenge, massive adversity, doubt, or even fear? For me, the answer is yes. In today’s episode, I share my experience on NBC STRONG (now airing on Netflix) and how that proved to be a very deep and personally transformative experience for me. Some of the stories I have not shared publicly…until today!

In today’s episode, I share 5 deep lessons, stories, and wisdom discovered while in the midst of battling for not only a half-million dollars on STRONG but what I did to garner the strength when I didn’t think I had much left. This includes what I did to overcome nearly passing out of pure fatigue and exhaustion during the Finals, how prayer impacted me during the tough times and what I did on the “Elimination Tower” platform every time I competed to help me find strength that I didn’t necessarily know I had. That one is going to make you laugh.

This episode will inspire you. It will challenge you to go deep. It will remind you who you are. And you will realize that everything we are facing today, that you CAN and WILL get through it because you don’t know how STRONG you are until STRONG is all you have left. #WeGotThis
