    The Olympic Mindset: Overcoming Adversity with Kara Winger

    The Olympic Mindset: Overcoming Adversity with Kara Winger

    Kara Winger has competed 3x in the Olympic games for Team USA as a women's javelin thrower. Her longevity in the sport has spanned over a decade of elite performance and is unmatched in her event. 

    Throughout her career in a demanding sport, Kara has learned the skills to THRIVE mentally, physically, and emotionally as she has faced obstacles, adversity, and injury. 

    We discuss:


    When and how Kara knew that her goal was to go to the Olympic games
    How to have a healthy and vibrant relationship as a pro athlete
    Finding balance in a lifestyle that demands total dedication
    Her development as a mental athlete and how to cultivate the mindset of a champion
    A day-in-the-life of an elite athlete
    The business of being an elite athlete - sponsor relationships, social media, and how to stay true to yourself while using your platform for the greater good
    The Olympic games experience from an athletes perspective - from walking in the opening ceremonies, to meeting other high profile athletes, to witnessing history as a fan and spectator 
    and much more...

    I really enjoyed this conversation and could have easily continued chatting with Kara. She's down-to-earth but has the swagger of someone who knows what she's capable of. My key take-aways from our conversation:


    Focusing on improvement over time vs. other people's goals leads to success and fulfillment
    Compartmentalizing life and finding balance outside of your primary focus (work, athletics, etc) leads to more focused effort and greater efficiency
    The importance of communication - with your partner, team, coaches, etc - for breaking through mental barriers and achieving the next level of success

    Trick or Treat(ment) - How to NOT Get Hoodwinked in Healthcare

    Trick or Treat(ment) - How to NOT Get Hoodwinked in Healthcare

    It's easy to be confused about how to best utilize your resources when it comes to making healthcare decisions. In the midst of all of the marketing messaging, how do you figure out what might work for you and what's a scam?

    Here are my top 5 strategies for evaluating how to think about a healthcare product or service:


    Educate yourself - a knowledgeable consumer is less likely to be deceived
    Be wary of outrageous claims - learn how to apply the "sniff test" to health claims
    Treatments should be data driven - objective testing/measurements are an important part of individualizing care
    Don't be afraid to look outside of traditional insurance coverage - just because you have poor insurance or no insurance does not mean that you don't have access to healthcare resources
    Don't give up if you've not found YOUR answer - there's something out there for everyone, keep after it until you find the help you need. Working with a provider on this step will help eliminate the guesswork and save precious time and money

    Apply these principles when appraising any new healthcare product or service. It will lead to better outcomes, lower costs, and a better overall quality of life!
