This week Cindra joins Lisa to talk about how you cannot control what is happening in the world, but you can control its meaning and our interpretation of the events. It is the interpretation of the events that shapes your life, what you do and how you feel. You can change your interpretation to find a story that serves you better. 

This week’s Power Phrase: “I pay attention to the stories I tell myself. I choose an empowering interpretation.”

In this episode, Cindra talks about how the world’s best choose courage instead of comfort. To choose courage over comfort, consider what you can do TODAY that is uncomfortable. Courage is a muscle – the more you use it, the better you get at it. Being uncomfortable each day is the fastest way to make your vision for your life a reality and it’s the only way to reach the people you are intended to serve. Discomfort is the price you pay to experience success, step into your destiny and live a meaningful life. What will you do today to be uncomfortable?

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I choose courage over comfort. I flex my courage muscle and go for it.”

This Week’s Powerful Quote: “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than the fear.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

Dr. Justin Grunewald works at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in the heart of Minneapolis treating patients during their hospital stays. He works nights for seven to 10 days in a row, then he'll get about two weeks off. When Cindra caught up with Justin, he was in Colorado ready to go on a RV trip, running, camping and adventuring in the woods.

On Episode #14 on the High Performance Mindset back in 2015, Cindra interviewed Justin’s wife, Gabe Grunewald. The fearless middle distance runner who was going after her dreams to make an Olympic team despite cancer. Gabe’s life was cut short at just 32 last year, but she still managed to make a huge impact on the running community and beyond. While battling a rare form of cancer and competing as one of the best middle-distance runners in the country, she inspired countless people to live bravely.

For over 10 years, she fought adenoid cystic carcinoma, a rare cancer of the salivary glands, which she was diagnosed with as a fifth-year senior running for the University of Minnesota. Despite the diagnosis, she went on to become an All-American in the 1500 meters, and after that, a professional runner who almost made the 2012 Olympic team.

In this podcast, Justin and Cindra talk:

· Gabe’s life physiology and how we can each learn to live bravely

· How their foundation “Brave Like Gabe” started

· How Gabe was able to turn a difficulty into an opportunity

· Their “chance” encounter in Central Park with Chip Gaines that changed their world

· An inside look at the mindset of an elite athlete

In this episode, Cindra talks about given all the changes we are experiencing right now that it is important to remember that it is okay to feel whatever you are feeling. A key to being resilient is to remember there is no reason to judge your emotions as good or bad. Instead, use how you are feeling as information and data about what is important to you. There are so many things we cannot control right now but we can look ahead and create a new vision for our future and consider 1 thing we can do to move towards that vision each day. You can continue to adjust and adapt like you have been for the last 5 months! 

 

 

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” Victor Frankl

 

 

This week’s Power Phrase:  I can adjust and adapt. I can handle anything that comes my way.”

Cindra talks about embracing a “new better” which helps you move forward despite the things in our world that you cannot control. It is easy to live in fear right now given the uncertainty in the world. Today, Cindra talks about what to do when you “amygdala gets hijacked” due to fear and how we can move forward embracing a “new better” instead. One way to embrace a "new better" is to consider what your vision looks like and what is one thing you can do today to reach that vision. As Abraham Lincoln said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it!”  

 

This week’s Power Phrase:  I embrace the new better. I imagine the future in my mind and then create it.”
