I’m stoked to have the empowering Sarah Wells, an Olympic hurdler semi-finalist and Pan Am Games silver medalist dropping some serious wisdom about self-belief, resilience, and what you can do to overcome any obstacle to achieve anything you desire.

Sarah knows a thing or two about resilience and the power of believing in yourself. She’s experienced the highest of highs of success and achievement. However, she’s also experienced the lowest of lows on her journey, with multiple injuries sidelining her from the Olympics not once, but twice. Yes, TWICE. Sarah developed a stress fracture in her femur that had her sitting out for 9 months right before the 2012 Olympics, and tore her hamstring during Olympic training a few years later. Despite the setbacks, Sarah’s managed to prop herself up through the power of self-belief in order to achieve her goals. She’s here to help you discover your ‘why,’ your power, and how to build resilience so you can truly do anything you set your mind to.

It can be so difficult to push through obstacles, especially when you can’t see what lies on the other side. Sarah knows firsthand the stress that comes from the expectations and pressures we, and others, put on us. Sarah delves how to manage those pressures and the importance of surrounding yourself with the right people, being compassionate to yourself, and reminding yourself of you ‘why’ in order to push through any barrier.

Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. But believing in yourself is the first step toward reaching your passion, no matter what it is.

Sarah Wells

Obstacles don’t scare Sarah Wells. As a 400m hurdler, this Olympian’s reputation was forged through overcoming challenges, redefining realistic and achieving the incredible. Take her debut at the London Olympics in 2012, which came despite an injury that had her sidelined her for months just the year before. Leaning in to innovative training techniques and a modified training plan, Sarah fought to realize her dream. Evidently someone who understands the importance of managing pressure and the importance of mindset, you’ll want to listen up while Olympic semi-finalist and Pan Am Games silver medallist speaks to us about her journey.
