Did you know that 96% of C suite execs across the US played sport in their teenage years!?!􏰖􏰗􏰂􏰇 􏰘􏰆􏰙􏰙 􏰀􏰚􏰆􏰂􏰛􏰙􏰪

Sarah Wolfer is the Founder and CEO of Girl Boss Sports, a Seattle based start-up.

She is working toward two very important goals:

1) Keeping girls in sports and

2) Increasing the number of women sports coaches.

Sarah has been a soccer player and coach for most of her life including playing at the semi-professional level and coaching at the collegiate level.

She consistently found that there was a lack of female representation and equity across all aspects of sports and she decided to do something about it in 2018 when she started Girl Boss Sports.

In this episode she talks about what it is about participating in sport that translates into business leadership and much more.

This is one of the In between episodes and today I consider the questions: Are we our own algorithm?

I'd been thinking about the Jim Rohn quote about the 5 people we spend most time with and especially as this applies to the way I'm living at the moment. 

Do I have 5 people?

Who are my 5 people?

Our minds are amazing and the more we learn about how the mind works, the more convinced I am that we can be who we want to be and we can do anything we want to do …

Have a listen and please let me know what you think. I'd love to know

  • NLP and understanding that we can choose new ways to be and the value of having a coach to help support through this process

This is an in-between episodes. In between the Interviews!

Today I talk about affirmations, what they mean to me, how I use them and why I believe they are more than just "believe it and you will see it"

I first became aware of affirmations when I was in high school and they have remained part of my life since then.

Repeating positive affirmations and expecting things to change doesn't work. This is because it targets the conscious level of your mind - not the unconscious.

Affirmations need to be supported by action – they don’t work on their own

Recently I gave my Thrive coaching group an activity to highlight their unique gifts. They all said it is a terrific reminder of just how much they have achieved!  

In this epidote I share this same activity for you to use for yourself and this is your CTA from this episode.

Please do let me know how it goes

I share some of my personal favourites

I'd love to hear how you use affirmations. Let me know on ingrid@healthynumbers.com.au or leave me a comment wherever you listen to this podcast.

I mention the Oprah series and you can find week 1 over on Youtube:

Enjoy!!
