Have you ever hit rock bottom? I have. When I hit rock bottom 5 years ago as a result of severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, I was told by doctors that I would never recover. If it wasn’t for the desire to embark on remarkable adventures, I’m not sure if I would have had the strength, resolve or perseverance to fully recover. Thankfully I did. Now, I strive to live my best life and adventure is a big part of that. Here are 5 ways adventure has transformed my life.

1. ADVENTURE GAVE ME AN EXCITING LIFE TO AIM FOR

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”6811″ alignment=”” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Between 2009 and 2013 my health deteriorated to such an extent that I had to withdraw from studying a BSc Geography degree at University College of London. Most days I spent in bed, in a darkened and silent room, too exhausted to move.

Explorers Connect, an organisation leading an adventure revolution, and adventurers gave me a glimpse into a whole new world, one bursting with adventure, passion, wildness and exploration. I knew I wanted to slice of the action.

During the days when I felt low, the wonderfully exciting adventures that were continuously posted on Explorers Connect filled me with determination and ambition to recover.

Reading about other people’s adventures also tantalised my tastebuds for my very own journey, Alastair Humphrey’s blog was an endless source of inspiration.

It’s adventurers such as Alastair Humphrey, Frank Wild and Scott of the Antarctic, that gave me the courage to keep moving forward, to face my fears and challenge conventional wisdom.

[Listen to Angie Butler on my podcast Season 1 Episode 9 to hear about the fascinating life of Frank Wild – he’s spent more time in Antarctica than Scott or Shackleton!]

I spent countless days imagining my life as an adventurer and what it would be like to travel the world by bike or pull a sled across the Arctic’s snow.

I knew I had to find a way to get over my illness no matter what. I wanted a slice of that action.

2. SMALL ADVENTURES OPENED THE DOORS TO BIG ADVENTURES

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7431″ alignment=”” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

I remember my first two British adventures like it was yesterday…

It was my first summer in which I had totally regained my health and I felt ready to try my first microadventure. Having never done anything like this before, not knowing if I would enjoy it or not and with the lack of adventurous friends to advise, I decided to go on a fully organised microadventure with Explorers Connect.

When booking my first trip I felt akin to a small child in a sweet shop, being completely overwhelmed by the amount of sweets on display and having to choose just one, when all of them looking utterly delightful!

My very first microadventure was in Gower, Wales…

The weather was glorious and the people were fantastic. I remember watching Anton’s pop up tent blow away and Belinda’s ripping in two!

We hiked, dived into a tidal pool, ate ice cream by the beach, drank beer and stand up paddle boarded in the harbour.

I felt alive and full of energy. I loved every second of it. The tales of people’s adventures had me on the edge of my seat and I came away buzzing.

That weekend sparked my love affair with adventure. I felt very intrepid and booked my second trip a few days later…Wild Camping in the Brecon Beacons.

Forecasted for torrential rain, my parents were worried and the guy I was dating at the time thought I was crazy, but I was too excited for words.

It was my first time in the Brecon Beacons and wild camping. And I LOVED it! We hiked up a ridge to the most spectacular views of quintessential Welsh countryside.

A patchwork of green hues, rolling hills, wild hedgerows and dense forests spread out before us. We watched grumbling purple clouds move across the horizon as we basked in blue skies and sunshine!

We hiked off the ridge and into the untamed land, where we explored a magical damp wood and discovered an enchanted pool with a tumbling waterfall — perfect for a quick morning dip to wake you up.

I felt very daring wild camping in the Welsh countryside and as I slipped into the enchanted pool, with the water’s cold shock forcing me to catch my breathe, I also felt rather adventurous.

The time has gone when I was too scared to jump into glacial waters (circa school trip 2008). These microadventures have proven to be the stepping stones to my bigger adventures and with each one, my courage grows and comfort zone stretches.

[Read My Ultimate Adventure Guide To Mongolia: 11 Reasons To Visit which I created after traveling and working solo in Mongolia for 3 months!]

However, I still LOVE the microadventures and am fully enlisted into the weekend warrior philosophy, although now you’ll more often find me clipped into my road bike or running on the trails than strapped into my hiking boots.

3. ADVENTURE IS A MINDSET

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”6591″ alignment=”” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Over the years I’ve come to discover and learn that adventure isn’t a one-off event or journey that involves exploring an unfamiliar culture or landscape.

Adventure is a mindset that you live by and it is unique to everyone.

For me, adventure means embarking on a journey of transformation by taking that one giant leap of faith and trusting that the universe will catch you. It can be building a business, growing a brand, changing careers, starting a family or venturing into nature. It can be anything you want.

The people who take these leaps are those that inspire me to grow, take risks and make a difference to this world.

[Want more adventure in your life or thinking of changing direction in your life? Listen to Season 1 Episode 12: How To Live A Life Of Adventure to find out how others have achieved living an adventurous life.]

The people on my first Explorers Connect microadventure squashed any doubts I had about my solo travel plans, they boosted my confidence about traveling solo and told me tales of their bygone journeys which topped up my excitement, motivation and inspiration to just go!

I have since traveled down a trajectory I never thought existed and my path continues to change, but always down the more adventurous option!

4. ADVENTURE HAS PUSHED ME

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”6550″ alignment=”” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

By surrounding myself with inspirational adventurers who are continuously pushing their limits and enjoying life’s journey, I have been motivated to push myself further, be better, set higher goals and be the best that I can be.

Jim Rohn’s belief rings true to me…

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” — Jim Rohn

If you had told me when I was 17 or 18 that I would be wild camping in a field, in a bivvy bag, I would have laughed and thought you mad. Now this is one of the things that I live for!

Belinda Kirk, founder of Explorers Connect, and her incredible community were the first to help me learn new skills in the outdoors, increase my self-confidence, stretch my comfort zone and encourage me to overcome my fears.

When I was 11, I cried for hours after spending a short few minutes on Disneyland’s Rocky Mountain rollercoaster.

While adventuring in an old Victorian slate mine last year, I jumped off a ledge to free fall 50m for fun (attached to a rope) AND with adventurer Laura Kennington we completed the Via Ferrata Xtreme at Honister, Lake District.

I really dislike heights but these small feats bolster my confidence and show me that I am the master of my mind.

Adventure has facilitated me to stretch myself that little bit further, take greater risks and it has taught me to live in the moment.

5. IF IT WASN’T FOR DISCOVERING ADVENTURE, I WOULDN’T BE WHERE I AM TODAY

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”8024″ alignment=”” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

If I hadn’t picked up Scott Of The Antarctic’s diary, read Rich Roll’s book, sat at the back of the Royal Geographical’s auditorium listening to the tale of Frank Wild, or never come across Explorers Connect, then I hate to think where I would be today. Adventure truly has transformed and changed my life.

It’s that time of year again when hundreds of the earth’s most extreme triathletes will converge on a Norwegian fjord, to race in the world’s toughest one-day endurance challenge on Saturday 4th August 2018.

And I’m SO excited to be blogging about it, driving the press coverage and taking over their Instagram stories!

It will be all systems go in Eidfjord, Norway in just a few of weeks for the Isklar Norseman Extreme Triathlon’s 16th race, with 280 of the most daring triathletes swimming 3.8km, cycling 180km, running 42.2km and ascending more than 5235m in Norway’s exquisite landscape.

For the record, that’s a swim in freezing fjord waters, a bike through mountains, and a full marathon culminating in a steep ascent up a mountain for that prestigious black tee shirt – Oh, and by the way, this all starts at 4am by jumping off a car ferry into the icy waters and it’s over in less than 24 hours later

On 4th August records will be made, champions crowned, history re-written, minds blown and stories will be told.

They’ve certainly done that and I can’t wait to discover just how epic this race is – and learn all the tips and tricks I need for 2020 when I hope to be on the car ferry too.

Tune into live.nxtri.com for live coverage and watch their Instagram stories @nxtri for my live coverage and my Instagram @adelaidegoodeve to see how I’m preparing to cover for Norseman and for daily updates of the race itself.

With candid guests and empowering workshops, this is an event giving female adventurers a voice. We went to this year’s event in New York to hear what the people are saying…

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Thousands upon thousands of women spend time adventuring every single day. For many it’s something new, to others it’s a longtime love. But despite a heavy female presence, recent surveys have shown that there is still a widespread gender gap in the outdoor world.
Aiming to combat this is Women In The Outdoors Week, a US-based festival inspiring, educating and empowering women to adventure. From incredible speakers to amazing films, panels and trips, they gather the best voices in female adventuring to unearth what they know. One of those speakers this year was UK podcaster and lifestyle coach Adelaide GoodeveHere, she reports on what she learned.

The emphasis of the festival may have been to empower more women to connect with the wilderness, but as Mina Okapi, founder of Black People Who Love Outdoors And Adventure, reminded attendees, there is still much work to be done on increasing adventure participation among ethnic minorities, too.
“We need to change our mindset and breakdown the limits that either society has or ourselves have imposed,” she said, before explaining how she set up her group because she felt the black community had instilled a fear of adventuring in themselves, and now aims to promote new experiences. And with a 2000-strong community, it’s clear she is already making a difference.

2. True influencers aren’t on social media

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

You don’t have to look for inspirational outdoors women in glossy magazines, advertisements or on social media. They are often right in front of you.
As Lauren Skonieczny, operations manager at Discover Outdoors, pointed out, “We are often well aware of the fact that there are fewer outdoors women being promoted to such high-profile levels as men. However, this doesn’t mean that we can’t find inspiration and motivation to challenge our limits in the outdoors.”
“Look around you,” she encouraged her audience, and she’s right. Perhaps at your local climbing centre, cycle club, within your workplace and/or among your family and friends, there is someone to seek out new opportunities with.

The outdoor world is often intimidating and overwhelming to those who are brand new to outdoor sport or want to get involved. And if you’re like me and a big fan of the outdoors, making female friends who live for adventure can feel like playing a game of Where’s Wally?
But Bethany Lebewitz, founder of Brown Girls Climb, believes joining a community of like-minded women can “build confidence, ensure you have fun and help you break statistics and stereotypes together.”
“We climb over generations of oppression, injustice, abuse, rape, and self-deprecation,” she says. “We climb over doubts, fears, struggles, and insults on a daily basis.”

Stuck thinking certain adventure pursuits aren’t for you? That you’ll never be able to windsurf, rock climb or skydive? Don’t worry – you can always learn new activities at indoor classes, honing your craft alongside specialised instructors within safe settings.
“You deserve to do whatever you want, the outdoors exists for everybody,” said Discover Outdoors operations manager Skonieczny. 
Proving this more than most right now, Kareemah Batts, founder of the Adaptive Climbing Group, is working to help adventurers with disabilities take on whatever task they want, spreading the message that anyone can climb. In the last three years, the group has grown exponentially across the US.

It’s good to remember even Bear Grylls will have made a fool of himself at some point. There’s nothing gained from being disheartened if you don’t reach your goals. 
Skonieczny echoed these sentiments, saying: “Think of failure differently; see what you can do, push your limits, learn and improve next time.”
Indeed, one of the main messages from the week, was to stop seeing failure as a weakness or a shortcoming or a reason to stop trying. Instead, see failure in the outdoors as an opportunity to learn and improve in whatever discipline you prefer.

6. It’s not all about the summit

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

“Every rock is different, every climb is different. Nature reflects what’s inside of us and how we connect with nature and ourself is what counts,” mused Whitney Boland, ambassador for Flash Foxy, a female-led community that brings women climbers together through a variety of events across the country.
The old adage that it’s all about enjoying the journey, not focusing on the destination, is most apt when it comes to outdoor adventure. As Skonieczny said: “It’s about respecting and co-existing with nature, it’s not all about conquering the summit but asking yourself, what can I get from this experience?”

“It’s not us vs them,” said Boland, who was also keen to stress how women athletes have a huge potential to thrive in outdoor sports, as those pursuits tap into female strength, including our mental resilience and metabolism. Studies show women have more stamina and muscle endurance than men.
And if record-breaking adventurers such as Vanessa O’Brien [pictured above] describe women’s resilience being one of our greatest strengths, then it has to be true!
However, with social media being so prolific and everyone showing off their best adventure, climb, summit, achievement and more, it’s easy to fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to others. Instead, take inspiration from the pictures and posts you see – and then focus on your own personal journey.

8. Give back

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

“Give encouragement to those around you, as they’re often doing it for the first time,” said Okapi.
Random acts of kindness in the outdoor world go a long way, added Boland: “If someone did something for you, then think about doing something for someone else.” Think how you can give back to your outdoor sport community, whether it’s being a mentor, offering words of encouragement or helping someone out as a one-off.”

Feeling stressed or anxious? Weight of the world on your shoulders? Here’s why running or cycling to work every day could be the mental boost you never knew you needed.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Millions of us are affected by mental health issues each year – at work, at home, anywhere. The NHS has revealed that the amount of antidepressant prescriptions have over doubled in the last decade, while a study in 2017 found that three out of five employees have experienced mental issues in the last year due to work.

But did you know you could improve your mental health by swapping all or some of your workday commute for a bike or some running shoes? A report by the Royal Society for Public Health strongly argued that non-active commuting is detrimental to our mental (and physical) health.

And with the return of the Red Bull Million Mile Commute – when we’ll be asking active commuters across the world to help clock one million miles in a single month – there’s never been a better time to do it.

We spoke to real life people who found active commuting impacted their mental wellbeing for the better. Because those who know just know…

“Once you start active commuting you are hooked. From then on, it’s a complete no brainer”, says Mieke Stones, who spent a whole year only travelling by “human-powered” means.
Initially sparked by a personal crisis, running and cycling everywhere brought her out of a dark place: “My world was turned upside down and running [to and from work] saved me from crashing to a point of no return. The best moment was cycling to and from a trail run in Kent, and placing in the top 10.”

2. Your mind is sharper

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

“Instead of going from my bed to the desk to bed again, I’m able to get my mind and blood flowing by walking or running four miles to and from work. I arrive feeing happier, fresher, more focused and alert,” says 9-5er Debbie Morgan.

It’s a similar story for fellow Londoner Ed Ceurstemont, whose mind has become as powerful as his quads since swapping four wheels for two: “I cycle 12 miles to and from work, two to three times a week and the days I cycle I feel more alert and mentally stimulated. I arrive to work feeling ready. The days I don’t cycle, I don’t feel half as ready when I arrive at work, having switched off in the car.”

You don’t even need to run or cycle – simply getting off at a few transport stops earlier and elongating your walk can have a big impact, as recent convert Gemma Lauren Smith describes: “Walk commuting at least two hours a day has affected me more mentally than physically. Before my walk commute, I didn’t realise how much commuting by tube and bus was affecting my mental health. Walking to work has massively affected how my day goes.”

“Active commuting has had a positive impact on my mental fitness,” says Paul Robinson, who cycles nine miles to work each way, every day. “The wind in my hair and sun on my face during the better English weather, really gives me a mental lift.”

Bertie Whitley, a trainee doctor, used to get a bus from Hammersmith to Twickenham which took 1 to 1.5 hours and now cycles all over London to work: “I’m a complete covert and now cycle all over London to my work – even in the winter! Cycling outside makes a huge difference to my mental health and I feel very smug while I cycle, overtaking cars and listening to cool music and podcasts, just having a really lovely time.”

4. It allows you to de-stress after work

The majority of active commuters Red Bull spoke to said they found cycling, running or walking home an invaluable time to switch their mindset off from work and clear their heads. This allows them to keep 9-5 stresses in the 9-5, and arrive home feeling calm, relaxed and ready to enjoy the evening.

“I am able to have that work/life balance. When I leave work, I leave my work problems at work, switch my mindset and clear my head,” says seasoned active commuter Georgina Jackson, who runs two miles to and from work.

Another bonus of commuting on bike or foot is that you’ll be getting fit as you go, making it an even greater prospect for keen amateur sportspeople like Dave Ladkin: “I cycle 20 miles each way through the countryside from Guildford to Surbiton two to three times a week. Cycling into work has enabled me to stay fit and train for criterium, or crit, racing, in which you cycle several laps around a closed circuit.”

By the same token, active commutes have also helped people less into sport increase confidence, get fit for purpose and unlock goals they never thought possible. As was the case with Paul (“I wanted to become fitter and healthier, so I started active commuting and it has really made a huge difference to my strength and fitness levels – the other week I achieved a personal best in a 5km Park Run!”) and Bertie (“Cycling to work helps me fit in at least 1 hour of exercise a day, which I would otherwise not get, as long working hours means I have little motivation to do exercise”).

6. Financial stress can negatively effect mental health

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

A report by the CIPD (the professional body for HR and people development) found that one in four employees claimed their performance was affected by financial worries. A significant amount of our budget goes on transport, whether it’s buying tickets for trains or buses or the upkeep of a car. By switching your commute for cycling, walking or running, you can save a lot of money.

But don’t take our word for it…

“You save money by avoiding transport and the cycle to work scheme is a huge money saver,” says Mieke.

“I would recommend active commuting because above all it is a massive money saver,” adds Paul.

Studies have shown that spending time outside will improve your mental health, helping to fight depression, anxiety and stress and making you feel more relaxed, calm and present.

Georgina agrees: “Time outside for me is very important. I find if I’m stuck inside with no natural light and minimal fresh air, I feel more anxious and down. Just 30 minutes to one hour outside, however, makes the world of difference, helping me to clear my mind and get into the right mindset.”

What’s more, there’s adventure lurking around every corner, as Gemma describes: “I started walking some of my commute through Regent’s Park and it made a huge difference to my mental fitness…I am able to have an extra adventure on my way back from work.”

8. You avoid public transport issues

“I don’t have the worry and stress of squeezing onto the tube and if there will be delays or cancellations [by active commuting],” says Paul.

Yep, another big concern and worry for commuters is whether they’re going to be late for work or a meeting due to heavy traffic or cancellations, delays and strikes on the tube, train or bus.

By walking, cycling or running this worry disappears. It’s a much more relaxing way to travel to work as you know what time you’ll approximately arrive at your destination – you never have to be late again!

“It’s much more relaxing to be able to know that when you leave your home or work, you will arrive at your destination at a certain time. Instead of worrying if you’ll be stuck in traffic or your train will be delayed or cancelled,” says Dave.

Does sleep elude you or won’t come in the evening? Today I share with you 8 Sleep Secrets that have helped me to fall asleep quickly when my head hits the pillow.

Before I share them with you, this week is mental health week.

Did you know a lack of sleep affects our mental health, brain, health, stress levels and our mood, to name a few?

Getting really good quality sleep is very important and should be a priority for you, because it empowers you to

  • Live your life to the full
  • Unleash your best self
  • Be proactive and present
  • Not react to stuff in an unhelpful way
  • Boosts your joy, gratitude, positivity, vitality and energy
  • Helps you to become a smart decision maker
  • Love More
  • AND MUCH MORE!!!

After reading this blog I dare you to prioritise sleep and to rediscover just how amazing it can be and feel to get great quality sleep…

1. Turn off all screens 1 hour before bed

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7748″ alignment=”” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Blue light is the most disturbing and disruptive light to your body, as it stops the production of melatonin: your body’s major sleep hormone.

Hack: Buy blue light blocking glasses – mine were very cheap and are subsequently, super cool. I might treat you to a picture soon!

Tip: Make bedrooms a phone-laptop-iPad free zone (this is something Arianna Huffington strongly promotes) – how will I wake up on time or charge my phone I hear you ask? Fear not, you can buy a cheap alarm clock (or ask Santa for a Roberts Radio Clock) and charge your phone in another room.

2. No Caffeine After Noon

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Caffeine impairs sleep and as it takes the majority of people 4-6 hours to digest (some longer), it’s best not have it after 12pm. This includes both tea and coffee.

It stops the production of a sleep promotion chemical called adenosine, which is a neuromodulator in the brain and has the effect of inhibiting many of the bodily processes associated with wakefulness.

Tip: Switch out English Breakfast or coffee for Rooibos, or other herb teas (Tea Pigs rock). I have cut out caffeine altogether and love decaf or a dandelion ‘coffee’ mid-morning.

3. Warm ‘Golden Milk’ Drink

This is an Ayurvedic recipe that combines 2 potent spices: turmeric and black pepper. The health benefits of this drink are numerous, but it is great for helping you get a good night’s sleep.

Makes 1 mug

  • 4 pinches turmeric
    2 pinches cinnamon
    1 pinch ground black pepper (increases bioavailability of turmeric)
  • 1/4 tsp of coconut oil (enhances absorption)
  • 1 mug of plant milk (or dairy). I LOVE full fat Mylk by Rebel Kitchen.

4. Bedtime Ritual

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]A bedtime ritual is a really great way to wind down and signal to your body to start preparing for sleep.

1 hour before bed…

Start reducing the amount of light in your house…

Your skin and eyes are full of sensitive light receptors which tell our body what time of day it is and when to produce melatonin, controls your sleep cycle, and serotonin, regulates your sleep. As the evening draws in, the body’s serotonin levels rise and melatonin is released to start the natural sleep cycle.

Turn down the temperature in your bedroom…

 At night your core body temperature drops, signaling to your brain that it’s time for sleep. A cold shower can help. (don’t be tempted to warm your bed with a hot water bottle!)

Eat sleep promoting foods for dinner…

Complex carbohydrates release insulin which sends a message to your brain to release melatonin and serotonin.

Slip into comfortable pyjamas…

Arianna Huffington suggests buying ‘official’ pyjamas, instead of using an old tee shirt, as it will make sleep feel more special and further signal to your brain that the day has come to an end.

5. Commit To A Sleep Schedule

Go to bed and get up at the same time every day – yes, even on weekends, holidays and days off! This consistency reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle, helping you to optimise your sleep.

To get started, choose a bed time when you normally feel tired. If you’re getting enough quality sleep, you should naturally wake up at your desired time.

However, if you do need an alarm clock, then you may need an earlier bedtime.

Tip: If you can’t fall asleep straight away, don’t become frustrated. Meditate, read a book or make yourself Golden Milk and you will soon be nodding off!

6. Meditate

This has been a game changer for me. It enables me to quieten my mind and drift off to sleep happily and quickly. Apps like Calm and Insight Timer are really good.

7. Block The Light Out

I am really light sensitive and if there is any kind of light drifting through my curtain, either natural or artificial, it disrupts my sleep. I have black out curtains and take an eye mask with me everywhere.

8. Save Your Bed For Sleep And Sex

Train your brain to associate your bed with sleep and sex by not working, watching TV or using your computer in bed. This will help you fall asleep quickly.

If you still have trouble getting to sleep then don’t worry, then send me a message and I can help you.

Quick Background on Mongolia’s Infamous History

Do you know the legend of Genghis Khan?

It is told that Genghis Khan was born with a blood clot in his hand and therefore destined to lead Mongolia to become the world’s largest empire. Genghis Khan’s vast empire was founded upon Mongolia’s nomadic steppe life and horses. It was this legend that captured my imagination and lead me to catching a train from Beijing to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Mongolia’s history and heritage drew me in, but it was its unique charms that won my heart. I found the nomads wonderful and their lifestyle fascinating, with their yurts, horses and cattle. The country felt raw and authentic being off the beaten track and it was cloaked in mystery to the Western eye. I was eager to discover its treasure trove of culture and natural beauty!

Mongolia’s Festival Of The Year: The Naadam Festival

During the Naadam Festival, Mongolians celebrate their ancestral history and culture by boasting their talents in The Three Games of Men:

  • Jaw-dropping wrestling
  • Unbelievably accurate archery
  • Spine-tingling horse racing

Mongols participate in these events to prove that they’re man or woman enough to be descendants of their notorious and illustrious hero Genghis Khan.

A week before the festival, Ulaanbaatar was buzzing with Naadam fever and reached a bewildering climax during the 4-day festival period. There were ubiquitous amounts of drinking, eating, dancing, music, parades, parties and dressing up. Everyone was in high spirits and wearing their best deel, a traditional cloak of Mongol nomads. It was terrific to visit at this time of the year!

Jaw-dropping wrestling

Watching the Mongol men wrestling in the arena was fantastically bizarre. The most successful wrestlers chose their opponents; therefore, gargantuan muscle-clad wrestlers dismissively picked off their feeble competitors with ballistic behavior. The wrestling was very theatrical as they wore heavy leather boots, a plush black velvet domed hat with a gold steeple, tiny royal blue silk briefs and a ruby red chest-exposing silk jacket.

Unbelievably accurate archery

SWOOOSH! I was left speechless when I first watched a line of archers dressed in opulent deels fire their arrows. Virtually every one hit a bullseye. The adjudicators threw their arms up as the stacks of tin cans at least 30m away tumbled down. Each archer possessed astounding accuracy. I now understood why the Mongolian archers were both infamous and feared, especially on horseback!

Spine-tingling horse racing

The horse race really blew me away. Mongol horses aren’t as graceful or prim as their Western relatives, but don’t let their small and stout appearance deceive you. They possess extraordinary qualities; they’re tough, fast, powerful, courageous and have remarkable stamina.

The horse race takes place about an hours drive outside of Ulaanbaatar on the immense undulating grassy green steppe. A city of white yurts spread extensively across the widespread valley and at its epicenter was the finishing line, surrounded by stalls selling food, horse gear, toys and games.

Jovial Mongols surrounded us as we watched the Soyolon (5 year old jockeys) horse race, which was a staggering 60km long. Around us was a sea of iconic Mongolian deels, while some Mongols observed the race from their saddle, others enjoyed a picnic and there was a circus group boasting their acrobatic skills.

Suddenly a glint on the horizon of the gently rolling hills appeared. Then before we blinked, a long train of galloping horses and precariously perched jockeys were cascading down the valley and thundering passed us. The crowd became extremely animated, waving and cheering the participants on! It was amazing; you could feel the electric energy of excitement surging through the crowd!

But the Naadam Festival isn’t the only reason to visit Mongolia, here are 10 more!!

1. Horse Riding Across The Steppe

I followed in the nomads’ hoof steps for 3 weeks. It was an extraordinary and exceptional experience…

There is no greater feeling than when galloping across the Mongolian steppe on your noble steed; the wind swooshing past your face, adrenaline pulsing through your body, the horse’s power beneath you, the blurring of the landscape as you increase speed and the sound of hooves rapidly striking the earth. It is exhilarating and liberating, something that stays with you forever.

2. Mongolian Culture and Nomadic Lifestyle

“To the mounted nomads who rode and resided along the Equestrian Equator [Eurasian steppe]…Life to them was a bridge; one should cross over it, not build a house on it.”

– CuChullaine O’Reilly, F.R.G.S., Founder of the Long Riders’ Guild

The Mongolian culture continues to be predominately centered on the traditional union between Mongol and horse. This union liberated humankind from its own physical limitations around 3000BC and would eventually allow Genghis Khan to create an Empire that overshadowed all others.

The Mongols are one with nature and their ancient knowledge passed down from their ancestors. However, the modern world is encroaching and climate change is detrimentally impacting their livelihoods.

The Ger Or Yurt

When traveling through the steppe, you often spy in the distance a minuscule white speck and as you advance towards it on your small native Mongol horse, it slowly grows in size. You soon recognize it as a ger, the nomads’ family home: a white circular tent with a domed roof, made from felt and wood and with an inviting door, often bright orange.

The foundations of a ger are homogenous, but the interior of each one is unique, personalized by the occupants. I have visited a variety of gers from those with grass floors to wooden floorboards, plain to highly decorative, basic to lavish, bare to cluttered, light to dark and small to large, but all have been impeccably clean.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_gallery type=”nectarslider_style” images=”7678,7681,7679,7680″ bullet_navigation_style=”see_through” onclick=”link_no” img_size=”600×600″][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Stepping Over The Ger’s Threshold

Being invited into a ger and stepping over the threshold, is a very special moment. You immediately walk clockwise around the centered stove, until you find a respectful place to sit and this is usually cross-legged on the floor, unless otherwise invited. As you are in awe of your new surroundings, a feeling of serenity and warmth washes over you.

The Special Mongolian Hospitality

While absorbing the magnificent interior, you accept a steaming hot bowl of fresh ‘Süütei tsai’ (yak milk tea) with two hands and ‘bayarlalaa’ (thank you).  The family may also offer aaruul (dried sweet yoghurt) or urum (divine thick layer of cream), airag (fermented mares milk – an acquired taste!) and/or their homemade vodka produced from yoghurt. Fresh vodka is lovely, especially warm, it is very smooth and easy to drink – sometimes to your detriment!

The Nomadic Lifestyle

Within 30 minutes a nomad family can pack up their ger and belongings onto a yak-pulled cart or camel train, boasting their possessions to those who pass. Families migrate with their livestock according to the season, in order to survive the harsh environment and provide pasture to their animals. The five prized steppe livestock are; horses, bovines (yak, cattle), sheep, goats and camels.

Their Music

Mongolians have distinct instruments and form of singing called throat singing. The music tells the story of the alliance between the steppe and Mongols beautifully. I have seen a local band play and heard various nomadic horsemen sing to their horses. Their music provides the perfect soundtrack to a long ride.

Their Deel (special type of clothing garment)

Whether working or riding, the nomads wear the traditional deel; a thick dressing-gown like garment that wraps around them from their neck to their ankles, with long sleeves stretching below their hands. A large sash is secured around their waist, a place to keep knives and useful tools. The deel protects them against the harsh winds and cold temperatures. With sleeves covering their hands, gloves are often disregarded and therefore allow them to use the horses’ reins effectively or milk the yaks efficiently.

Despite the deels’ practicality, the nomads always look picturesque wearing them, as they come in bold and exuberant colours with ornamental designs. The women always have their hair in one long dark, glossy braid.

3. Off The Beaten Tourist Trail

One of the qualities I found most appealing about Mongolia, is that it is not on the well-followed tourist path. Its borders were only opened in the 1990s and the West has yet to take its hold on this virtually unspoiled country.

Mongolia is aloof, largely shying away from the tourist mob and only attracting those who seek adventure, wilderness, and excitement. To experience the authentic Mongolia, you simply have to venture into the remote, land-locked land.

4. The Gobi Desert And Camel Riding

Riding a camel with a wonky hump through the desert was an uncomfortable experience and very slow, but wonderful.

The romanticism of camel riding, the mystifying senses of exoticness, excitement and luxury travel played to my imagination. The movements of Wonky my Bactrian camel soon yanked my dream world into a rather different reality.

The camels dawdled across the desert at a leisurely lollop. At first, this strange rhythm of striding was bizarre and uncomfortable. I sat perched in between two humps towering above the orange sand, not at all sure as to how to sit, be content or relaxed on Wonky. I felt very out of place.

Wonky provided me with a lofty view of the desert, which I was able to quickly lose myself in. The smell, the feel, the noises and the sights of the desert were mesmerizing and intriguing, new and different.

As time passed, I found Wonky’s slow pace and rhythm centered me in the moment and I was able to just Be and Exist. As I fell deeper under the deserts hypnosis, I realized I had become entirely relaxed and almost floppy, falling in with Wonky’s unusual rhythm.

The landscape was picturesque. Orange sand dunes contrasted with the stark cobalt blue sky. Great sapphire blue lakes would miraculously materialize nestled within the dunes and great desolate mountains. Distinct landforms would also suddenly appear, such as an orange rocky arch on top of a ridge! Occasionally we came across nomads living in this incredible landscape, which I thought quite a feat.

5. Magical Mongolian-Manchurian Steppe

I believe you can only truly experience and feel the true magic of the Mongolian steppe when immersed in its awe-inspiring landscape.

As soon as Ulaanbaatar’s ger districts and concrete buildings melt away behind you, the Mongolian-Manchurian steppe appears and stretches out as far as the eye can see.  You can feel the magic of this extraordinary place.

Ancient rivers have carved up the land into a myriad of valleys, with vast emerald green grasslands spreading flat out before you. Hills radiate from valley edges and mountains protrude into the sky, often with a light dusting of snow. Tall pine tree forests appear sporadically on the valley sides and add texture to the otherwise monotonous grasslands, as they finger into the sky like stiff broom bristles!

The steppe is nearly void of human life and is silent, except for the occasional buzz of an insect, call of an eagle, howl of a wolf, whinny of a horse, low grumble of a Furgon (the numerous veteran Albanian minibuses) or a Mongol’s laugh.

6. The Mongols

‘Tanilgui han algiin chine. Taniltai hun taliin chine.’

A man without friends is as small as a palm. A man with friends is as big as the steppe. – Old Mongolian Proverb.

When you meet a Mongolian nomad you are instantly drawn to his or her fabulous smile and their wise brown eyes. Their faces are weathered, etched with creases derived from living in the harsh environment and the sun has turned their skin leathery. They are extraordinarily friendly and always invite you in for tea!

You often find the children playing outside with an air of naivety that all children have, but in contrast to Western children, these guys are tough. A 2 year old is left quite happily with a sharp knife to slice cheese, a 4 year old is allowed to gallop across the countryside bareback and while a 10 year old boy is trusted with the role of looking after the family’s sheep all day, the girls milk the yaks or mares three times a day during the summer. You will always see them smiling and laughing.

7. Residence of ‘The Grand Leader of All’: Ghengis Khan.

I loved discovering about Mongolia’s once illustrious and shrewd hero, Genghis Khan, who in 1206 declared himself “The leader of all those who dwell in felt tents” and who is now their celebrity.

Genghis Khan was a leader of outstanding capabilities and vision, who in the face of adversity, united the diverse tribes of the steppe and went onto create the world’s largest contiguous Empire.

Mongols:  were they barbarians or highly sophisticated worldly people?

History has carved out Mongolians to be barbarians and primitive people, which remains a belief among some people today. However, the achievements of the Mongols, both military and other, have been extensively praised as evidence of a highly sophisticated and worldly society.

Empire building is a violent and destructive process, and the construction of the Mongol Empire was no exception. Numerous cities were destroyed and the Chinese fear of Genghis Khan’s army drove them to building The Great Wall of China!

Yet, despite this terror, the Mongols introduced broad social programs, incredible religious and cultural tolerance, economic prosperity and opened communication between Europe and China for the first time, amongst other achievements.

10. It’s A Truly Unique Country

  • Mongolia is populated by more livestock than humans: about 41 million Vs. 2.8 million, respectively.
  • Young population: approximately 68% of the population is under 35 years of age. 
  • One of the world’s most impressive literacy rates: 98% of adults are literate.
  • One third of the total population lives in the capital: Ulaanbaatar, marked by a red star on the map.
  • Mongolia is a landlocked country, bordering Russia and China

 

As a Mongol women calls out “Ayan zamdaa sain yavaarai” and flicks milk to the sky three times using a ladle, she wishes you good luck on your journey and asks God to keep you safe. An ancient Mongolian ritual.

8. You Can Travel There By Train

The Trans-Siberian Express train journey between Russia and China will transport you to Mongolia.

I had a huge amount of fun traveling by train from Beijing to Ulaanbaatar! I met lots of great people on the train who I ended up traveling with for a few weeks and they helped me get a brilliant volunteer position on a horse ger camp.

It was as if I was living in one of Agatha Christie’s Detective Novels! The interior was outdated and oriental; thinly padded red leather benches became your bed at night; you could watch the ground racing below the metal toilet; only the opening and closing of windows regulated the carriages’ temperature; the dining cart was out of a 1920’s or 30s film set!

I felt like I was aboard the Hogwarts Express, being transported to a magical place. Beijing’s grey, dirty urban concrete jungle gradually faded away and the vibrant green grass of the steppe with stark blue sky came into view. As I gazed at the changing landscape through the old fashioned windows, I felt as if I was watching a stunning old-fashioned Technicolor film in HD.

9. Ulaanbaatar, or using the local cool lingo: ‘UB’

UB oozes history, from its Communist-style architecture to historical monuments and museums. The urban and country Mongolian culture is embedded through local markets, restaurants, shops and entertainment.

The predominant architecture of UB is the remnant of the Communist Era; the City is largely a rundown grey concrete jigsaw of low-rise buildings. The Mongolian Parliament Building dominates the city center within Sükhbaatar Square and opposite is an immense bronze statue of Genghis Khan gazes out over the city. A reminder of the once Great Mongolian Empire.

On the other side of the square, is the ultra-modern Blue Sky Tower, symbolizing the disparity between Mongolia’s past and future. Mongolia’s future is looking peaceful and prosperous, due to its rich mineral wealth. The government is keen to re-invest the profit into their country and bring Mongolia onto the world stage. Already there is an epidemic of construction spread throughout the city, a sprawling ger district and plethora of restaurants, pubs and shops appealing to the mass of tourists.

Have you ever felt like giving up on achieving your dreams?

Did you feel the odds were stacked against you?

I understand how you feel. I’ve been there more times than I care to count.

For 4 years I experienced severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME) and other childhood conditions, which made my life very challenging. The deterioration in my health forced me to withdraw from university and live at home, mostly in bed, in a darkened and silent room.

Initially Doctors came up with all sorts of explanations, as CFS/ME doesn’t have a medical test or ‘cure’. To be diagnosed, everything else has to be eliminated.

I soon gave up on the medical world, as they seemed to give up on me. One of the CFS/ME leading experts told me that I’d have this condition for the rest of my life, there was no way to recover and I’d likely get worse. I refused to believe this.

Over the years I tried lots of different things and nothing really worked. So I know what it’s like to try again and again for little success and sometimes even steps backwards.

However, eventually I did fully recover using a powerful combination of tools and practices that enabled me to quickly re-wire my brain for the life I wanted to live. I’ve not looked back since and each day, I work towards living and creating a life I love and helping others to do the same. In this time, I’ve fulfilled two of my dreams.

When I was little girl, I was the one who dreamt of visiting the Arctic. The stories that have been woven into its culture and landscape captured my imagination and last year I cross-country skied across Svalbard for 9 days. In those 9 days I fell in love with the rhythm of skiing, Arctic camp life, Scandinavian culture and stunning white landscape.

(Listen or Read my story of crossing Svalbard here – I talk about the lessons I learnt, the high’s and the low’s!)

While I was sick, my most ambitious dream took hold: to be become an Ironman. In September last year this dream came true. When I started training a year before, besides not being fit when I began, I had never cycled on the road, run more than 15km, nor had any real experience of open water swimming. The Ironman Barcelona was my first triathlon and I achieved the race in 13 hours 58 minutes.

(Are you competing in an Ironman this year? Read my article on the 10 things I will be different for my half Ironman this year!)

The knowledge and tactics I acquired to fully recover from CFS had such a profound effect on me that I have now qualified as a practitioner. As well as them helping me to achieve my dreams, I help athletes and ambitious men and women to develop a winning mindset and live a life they love too.

I fully believe almost anything is possible if you put your mind to it. I know it’s easy to write about and harder to take action on, but if these 9 awesome adventurers and I can bend what’s possible, then why can’t you?

“You becoming empowered through pushing your boundaries and realise anything is possible.”

This year, Kiko Matthews broke the world record for the fastest unsupported solo row across the Atlantic ocean. 

Kiko’s achievement is even more spectacular because in 2009 she was diagnosed and survived the rare and life-threatening condition called Cushing’s Disease, which is caused by a tumour on the base of the brain. During her training last year, Kiko had to undergo more brain surgery to remove a new tumour. But did that stop her from achieving her dream? It did not.

(Listen to Kiko on The Wild Show – which she listened to whilst rowing the Atlantic! – to discover more about her incredible story!)

“What’s within you is stronger than what’s in your way.”

There are inspirational stories – and then there is that of Erik Weihenmayer, who lost his eyesight when he was a teenager due to a degenerative eye condition and became the first (and only) person to summit Mount Everest.

Motivated by the joy and discovery of what is possible, along with Everest he’s completed the Seven Summits Mountaineering Challenge and with fellow blind athlete Lonnie Bedwell, a Navy veteran, he kayaked the 277-mile length of the Grand Canyon. A lesson for us all to never give up in reaching our goals.

“Never be afraid – rock bottom is merely a foundation to build a better future.”

When Beth French was 10, she caught glandular fever, which caused her early life to be blighted with periods of immune dysfunction and exhaustion. At 17 she was wheelchair bound and diagnosed with CFS/ME.

Since fully recovering over 20 years ago, Beth has lived an adventurous life. She’s best known for endurance swimming and attempting to achieve the Oceans Seven challenge in one year, which is seven long distance open water channel swims.

The life of rower, explorer and ultra runner Gavan Hennigan hasn’t always been plain sailing. When he was young, Gavan suffered from alcohol and drug addiction and found himself in rehab at just 21.

But after going surfing with a friend on the shores of his native Galway, Gavan got lost in nature and believed it was an epiphany. Since then he has pushed the possibilities of human endurance, working worldwide as deep sea saturation diver and adventuring on all seven continents on his off months.

This includes climbing and snowboarding in Antarctica, completing two of the longest and toughest Winter Ultra runs in the world, and, surely the 36-year-old’s biggest moment to date, rowing the Atlantic, breaking a record as the fastest person to do it solo.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

“Many people postpone making their dreams a reality to wait for the perfect time. There is no such thing. The perfect time is right now.”

Widely considered one of the world’s strongest female ultra-endurance cyclists, Juliana Buhring‘s hardest path has often been off the saddle.

Moving frequently throughout 30 countries across Asia, Africa, and Europe in her childhood, she was separated from her mother aged four and grew up among the Children of God, an infamous apocalyptic cult.

In 2010, the love of her life, Hendri Coetzee – explorer and adventurer– was tragically killed when a crocodile attacked him on a river in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

But she didn’t let it break her. She turned to cycling for comfort and has since become an endurance icon. Her incredible achievements include becoming the fastest woman to cycle solo around the world and winning third place in the self-supported Bikingman Oman Sprint – riding 1,070 kilometers non-stop in 49 hours 53 minutes.

“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future.”

Tashi and Nungshi Malik are twin sisters and by 24 had become the first siblings and twins to climb the Seven Summits, reach the North and South Poles and complete the Explorers’ Grand Slam and Three Poles Challenge.

Very few Indian women have gained the mountaineering qualifications that Tashi and Nungshi have. Their adventures are inspired by the daily obstacles and hardships that many Indian women face, including discrimination, exclusion and denial of basic rights.

They show that with determination, grit and hard work, you can achieve your dreams.

“Anyone can be a superhero.”

Jamie McDonald spent the first nine years of his life in and out of hospital with a rare spinal condition, along with a very weak immune system and epilepsy. Over time his health significantly improved and in 2012 he began a quest to give back to the hospitals that supported him.

Jamie has since cycled 14,000 miles from Bangkok to his hometown of Gloucester, become the first person to run 5,000 miles unsupported across Canada and this year he’s running unsupported across the US. See? Real heroes do wear capes.

“Something happens to us when we push through what we think is our best; we see how much power we have, it gives us self belief.” 

Last year, Jake Tyler was troubled by anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts – he was scared that he would never recover. However, he noticed that when he was walking outside he felt much better. So, he decided to promote awareness and raise money for mental health groups by embarking on an outstanding 3000 mile walk around the British Isles and he absolutely smashed it while taking in the sights, sounds, characters and stunning walks of the British Isles.

Get involved yourself. Jake’s about to join some charity walks as part of Walking Out of Darkness 2018, a movement raising money for mental health and suicide prevention charities including CLASP.

Meg Hine shares a fascinating insight into her personal mindset and view of the world and the wild.

Adelaide also adds her own brilliant application of Meg’s wisdom, perfect for those of us whose survival mindset focuses more on personal challenges than life-threatening survival situations.

Let’s talk about survival.

What do you think determines whether someone survives a wilderness situation or not?

Do you think you would survive in a wilderness situation?

Do you know how to influence your thoughts and emotions to get the best out of yourself? Do you practice this on a daily basis?

Did you know that adventuring in the wilderness teaches us important lessons that can help us thrive in today’s world of information overload?

Today’s conversation asks us to rethink what separates the survivors from the rest – what makes those deemed by society unlikely to survive, such as women and children, to walk out from survival situations unscathed?

And you’ll soon see that by learning about and practicing survival techniques, we’ll learn how to thrive in this high pressure, stressful, busy and over-stimulated world we live in today.

According to this weeks guest, the most important survival rule that is often overlooked is: 3 seconds without thinking.

Meet Megan Hine.

One of the world’s top survival consultants. Megan splits her time between leading major and celebrity expeditions to producing, running safety and survival consulting for major TV networks, such as the Discovery Channel and National Geographic.

Megan has led hundreds of adventures across the world in truly wild places and is not just a good leader and adventurer. But very good.

She is best friends with Bear Grylls, working with him on numerous programmes and he says that Meg “is the most incredible bushcraft, climbing and mountain guide you’ll ever meet. She’s stronger than 99 percent of the men I know, she’s incredible.”

And it’s not just Bear who thinks she’s incredible, I do too. I’ve looked up to Meg for inspiration and motivation for years, so I was VERY excited when she agreed to come on The Wild Show and talk about her new book Mind Of A Survivor.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! Inside Meg answers the question: What separates the survivors from the rest?

Meg combines mindset with adventure, survival and her own hair-raising stories (what’s not to love?!), but after I devoured her book, my questions only grew in number.

In this podcast episode, we dive deeper into Meg’s book and I thought we could be uncovering what mindset tactics, tools and practices enables people to survive. However, having listened to our conversation again, I’ve realised Meg gives us an insight into how we can thrive.

So even if you don’t plan on being in a survival situation any time soon, my hope with this conversation and Meg’s book, is that you will be entertained and add more mindset arrows to your bow, enabling you not to just survive, but to thrive in whatever area of your life you desire.

I sincerely hope you enjoy our conversation.

I try to make the most of my weekends, whether it’s adventuring, training or recharging!

I went to visit my best friend in Geneva a few weekends ago and swapped the UK’s snow for Geneva’s!

I don’t know if you’ve been to Geneva before, but I found it very challenging to organise an adventure in a short amount of time.

After a few hours of hitting my head against the brick wall, I remembered meeting Alex Narracott from Much Better Adventures, a platform that helps you to be the ultimate weekend warrior!

The day I left for Geneva, we managed to book Igloo Building and Snowshoeing with Much Better Adventures for the next day![/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_gallery type=”nectarslider_style” images=”7513,7506,7505,7511,7509,7510,7508,7504,7507″ bullet_navigation_style=”see_through” onclick=”link_no” img_size=”600×800″][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

It was SO much fun, a fantastic way to recharge and re-energize and it helped me to understand the Norwegian philosophy of friluftsliv that I’ve been researching recently.

Friluftsliv (free-loo-sliff) loosely translates to: ‘the simple life’ or ‘open-air living’ and is a way of living in which you are interconnected to nature.

I will be talking about Friluftsliv more in the coming months as I conduct more research.

Similar to my special Svalbard Episode, I used the sounds I recorded and also an audio diary this time, to tell you my story of what it was like to build and sleep in an igloo!

How 3 Elements of the Adventure Mindset Help You Overcome the Impossible

If you have a goal or dream that you think, or have been told, is impossible, then read this blog to shift your perception and to start taking action towards achieving your goal or dream.

 

This blog post has been inspired by my first Icebreaker speech for Toastmasters, which won best prepared speech of the evening and I recorded it live!

 

I also turned my Icebreaker into a special podcast episode on The Wild Show, Season 2 Episode 11, so you can listen to it below or have a read!

Late last year I joined Toastmasters, an international organisation with clubs scattered all over the world, which helps you to improve your speaking and leadership skills and meet other like-minded people.

I joined the Guildford Toastmasters and I’ve been surprised by just how much fun it is! I love hearing about a great range of topics by different members and I really enjoy speaking in front of everyone – whether it’s 1-2 minutes about a random topic I’ve been given or my own talk!

The other week, was my chance to do my Icebreaker – the first speech of many! You have a pathway focused on a theme that you follow, such as leadership or motivational strategies, and in order to progress, you have to complete a project, from talking and evaluating to presenting and holding online meetings! You are evaluated on different things in each project, from variety of voice to challenging your audience to achieve higher levels of success.

The Icebreaker is your first speech, it’s just 4-6 minutes long and your objective is to begin speaking before an audience, discovering the speaking skills you have and where you need to improve.

For my Icebreaker, I decided to try out a talk I’ve been thinking of doing called How the mindset of Adventure helps you overcome the seemingly impossible.

When I walked into the room, there was a great buzz of energy, and it was choc-a-block of people, I’ve never seen it so busy!

After the introductions to members and guests and the speaking warm up were completed, it was time for me to do my Icebreaker, which you are going to here in a moment!

I recorded it live AND I won best prepared speech of the evening!

Mr toastmaster, members and guests, good evening, tonight I’m going to talk to you about how the mindset of adventure helps you overcome the seemingly impossible.

How many of you have been on an adventure? Could you raise your hands.

Amazing, so for those of you who raised your hand, I’m intrigued to see how my talk this evening will resonate with you, and for those who didn’t, I believe you will have changed your mind by the end!

For me, the importance of adventure didn’t enter my life until, ironically, I couldn’t go on an adventure! It wasn’t because I couldn’t afford it, or that I was working or studying full-time, it was because I was very sick.

I suffered for 4 years with severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and a few other conditions too, which made my life very challenging.

The only thing I can relate it to, although I have not done it, is climbing Mount Everest, because when you hear and see people who have stood on top on the world, they have overcome monumental challenges and have used up enormous amounts of energy. And for me, everyday was like climbing Mount Everest. Somedays getting up to brush my teeth, was like climbing Mount Everest.

It was around this time, that I also became very fascinated with polar explorations, I was especially fascinated and enthralled by the heroic tales of Scott, Shackleton, Amundsen and Frank Wild.

Frank Wild is the unsung hero of polar exploration and it was his quote, that I heard at the Royal Geographical Society, which really struck a chord with me and that I share with you now:

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7429″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%” img_link=”https://adelaidegoodeve.com/2017/07/18/jo-pickard/”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Wild was right, I couldn’t escape the little voices.  I was lying in bed everyday and I heard the little voices all of the time, adventure was calling to me and so was the wild.

Listen to Frank Wild’s autobiographer talk about his life on The Wild Show Season 1 Episode 9

However, the doctors had other plans, they said I couldn’t recover, that it was impossible and my health would most likely deteriorate.

Whereas I had a different plan….

I fully recovered during my 4th year of suffering with CFS – in just 3 days. In a 3 day seminar called The Lightning Process, I learnt how to re-wire my brain and it’s the closest thing to magic that I have come across. In 3 days I got my energy back and the very first thing I did was plan an adventure!

I always thought adventure was something you had to buy or experience, but actually through my own adventures and having now interviewed more than 20 experts in this field, I’ve come to realise that it’s a state of mind.

From Season 1 and 2 of The Wild Show, I’ve discovered that there are three key elements to the adventure mindset:

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

1. Resilience

Resilience means being able to influence your mind, feelings, emotions and physiology in a positive and useful way, independent of your environment.

My favourite way to explain resilience is to use Marathon Des Sable Finisher (also known as the toughest footrace on earth) and my friend, Sarah Williams’ mantra: Be The Egg.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7430″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%” img_link=”https://adelaidegoodeve.com/2017/07/18/jo-pickard/”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

If you put a potato and an egg in boiling water, over time the potato will become soft and disintegrate. However, the egg will become harder, it will become stronger, despite how hot that water gets, it’s going to become powerful.

The egg represents your mind. Despite what’s going on in your environment, you have the power to influence your body and mind to become strong, hard and powerful.

Listen to Sarah on The Wild Show Season 1 Episode 1 here.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

2. Intuition

Intuition is that feeling you get when an opportunity arises or when you have to make a decision, you might feel uneasy or feel that fire in your belly. 

It’s your internal guidance system that you can use to make decisions and follow your life’s path.

My friend, audio producer and host of podcast Inspirational Creatives, Rob Lawrence, loves using the Hell Yes practice when he has to make a decision.

If Rob feels unsure about something, then he says no to the request or opportunity; however, he feels that fire in the belly, that surge of energy through his body that makes him want to say Hell Yes! – even though logically he wouldn’t normally make that decision, then he says yes! (or hell yes!)

Listen to Rob on The Wild Show Season 1 Episode 3 here.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

3. Chunking

Chunking is when you have a massive goal and you might be feeling overwhelmed by it or paralysed with fear, because there is just so much to do, you don’t know what to do first, you have that internal chatter of self-doubt, failure and fear.

So instead of thinking about how to go from 1 to 10, think about how you can go from 1 to 2. What is the smallest, the most tiny action you can take that will move you forward towards achieving your goals and dreams?

Listen to Natalia Komis, serial entrepreneur, on The Wild Show Season 1 Episode 10 to discover the chunking strategy she uses with her clients.

Wrapping Up

These are the 3 elements of the mindset of adventure have really stood out to me in Season 1 and Season 2 of The Wild Show, as I interview experts across an eclectic background, from adventurers to entrepreneurs and TV presenters.

Adventure isn’t something you can buy, an experience or one-off holiday.

Adventure is a state of being, it’s a mindset, and if you can live by these 3 key elements and practice the habits, beliefs, values and behaviours that make them up, then you are well on your way to living in the state of adventure.

And by living in the state of adventure, you can turn the seemingly impossible into the possible.

You are capable of greatness by living in the mindset of adventure.

10 Women That Are Inspiring Me In 2018

Happy International Women’s Day!

If you feel like you’ve lost your mojo, then read my list of 10 Inspirational Women below to get your juices and energy flowing!

 

For me, #PressforProgress stands for: uniting all genders across the globe, to be inclusive and thoughtful of each other.

I find anyone with an incredible and powerful story inspiring and motivating, both historic and current.

You’ll notice that my podcast is inclusive of both genders and there’s pretty much a 50/50 gender split. I tend to have woman start and end my podcast series, but in the middle is mix of all genders!

We’ve come so far as women and with gender inclusivity, but more needs to happen, as I’m especially learning from one of my great friends who is an activist for those who have left their religion and those whose gender orientation doesn’t match their religion and are being heavily discriminated against to the worst degree.

To celebrate International Women’s Day here are the…

Last year Anna cycled across South America with her friend Faye and she’s currently embarking on a Canadian adventure!

Anna’s other adventures include cycling 7 months and 11,000 miles through every US state on a pink bike and running the length of New Zealand, following all 1,911 miles of the Te Araroa trail.

(Fingers crossed Anna will come on Season 3 of The Wild Show!)

Megan is probably one of my all-time adventure heroes!

She is a British adventurer, wilderness expedition leader and survival expert, as well as one of Bear Grylls’ two survival captains on ITV’s “Bear Grylls’ Mission Survive! Her lifelong thirst for travel and adventure has led her to amass a huge amount of expertise and experience in all aspects of the outdoors & remote wilderness environments.

By pushing her mental and physical limits in extreme environments, Megan has explored remote jungles, arid deserts and high and cold mountains; taking private clients, celebrities and television crews to extreme and beautiful places that they didn’t even know existed!

Megan will be debuting on Season 2 of The Wild Show, putting the cherry on top of my wonderful collection of conversations!

In 2014 Phoebe set herself the Extreme Sleeps Challenge and she slept at all of the extreme points of mainland Britain, solo and on consecutive nights. These included the highest, lowest, northernmost, southernmost, easternmost, westernmost and centremost reaches of our island!

I chatted to Phoebe on The Wild Show about wild camping, bothying, how to overcome fear and much more! Tune in here.

5. Emily Penn

Our oceans are in dire straits and thankfully we have Emily leading the helm to heal our oceans. Emily is on a mission to clean up our planet of plastic and help our ocean.

She is a skipper, ocean advocate and artist, dedicated to studying environmental challenges in the most remote parts of our planet. 

Emily has organised the largest ever community-led waste cleanup from a tiny Tongan island, trawled for microplastics on a voyage through the Arctic Northwest Passage and rounded the planet on the record-breaking biofuelled boat Earthrace.

I’m so thankful we have Emily as one of our ocean warriors, she inspires and motivates me to clean up my consumption and shows us that anything is possible.

Fingers crossed Emily will come on The Wild Show soon to talk about how we can help heal our planet and her practices for cultivating a tough mindset!

Until I interviewed Margaret for The Wild Show I had no idea just how much of badass she really is!

Margaret became the very first professional female obstacle course racer and has raced in some seriously insane endurance races, including Death Race! All of which are now on my bucket list!

As well as being a successful athlete, Margaret has a popular brand and podcast, Dirt In Your Skirt, for women who want to live a life they love and take their athletic endeavors to the next level.

Tune into my conversation with Margaret to discover how to develop a tough mindset, from one of the toughest female athletes!

8. Helen Russell

Some of you may not have heard of Helen Russell, but for me, she is one of my favourite authors.

Helen has written two books which encompass how to overcome challenges, improve your lifestyle and unlock your best self – all of which are wrapped up in terrific humour!

Helen’s books have inspired and motivated me to look at how I could make living in Norway become a reality and to write my own book at the end of the year – I’ve already started planning and writing the content!

This April Helen has her first fiction book coming out which I’m dying to read and fingers crossed, will be coming on Season 3 of The Wild Show! Yay!

9. Lele Pons

 

I found out about Lele Pons last year when Forbes published an article stating that she had the most watched Instagram videos of 2017.

I was super impressed as she wasn’t a big celebrity and also intrigued as to what Lele was posting. I was expecting an account filled with celebrity gossip, airbrushed and revealing images and pictures of a lavish lifestyle.

Wow. Was I wrong.

I am now a BIG fan of Lele and she has inspired me with my account and a piece of content that will be coming out late March/April sometime. I’m really excited about it and something I would never have thought producing!

Lele is simply hilarious and shows the ups and downs of being a vines superstar, comedian, singer, dancer and influencer with laughter and a good dose of reality. Her stories always make me laugh and they push me to go out of my social media comfort zone!

I would love to get Lele on my podcast, so fingers crossed for Season 3 or Season 4!

10. This one is for all women!

I’m inspired by all you women out there who are pushing your boundaries, whether you’re mums, single, married, divorced, widowed, fur parents, adventurers, entrepreneurs, athletes, stay at home, work 9-5, don’t want to have children, travellers, influencer, etc. all of you.

Every single one of you; you are my cup of tea!

I have so many messages from women who have come to me via my podcast and blog and say they’ve been motivated and inspired by the conversations, my story or blog post. And yet is I who is grateful to you, you continue to inspire, motivate and drive me to unlock my best self, reach my potential and to pursue helping you all achieve your greatness.

So THANK YOU.

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY.

Stay Wild!

3 Ways To Re-Wire Your Brain For Happiness (Thanks To Trolls)

[vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]

Do feel that you have no control over your mood? Then read this blog to find out how you can influence your happiness.

As I watched Dreamwork’s modern fairytale about Trolls and Bergens, I was inspired by how the story showed you 3 ways you can influence your happiness.

In this magical land, Trolls are brightly coloured, happy creatures who love to sing and dance. The Bergens are these dark coloured, unhappy creatures, who believe that they’re only able to be happy once a year on ‘Trollstice’, the day they eat the Trolls.

After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Princess Poppy, the happiest of Trolls, goes on a mission to rescue her friends and is accompanied by an overly-cautious, curmudgeonly Troll called Branch.

Their journey is filled with adventure and mishap and while rescuing their friends, they teach the Bergens how to be happy through dance and song and the Bergen’s then transform into fantastically coloured creatures.

1. Happiness Is Beautiful

Trolls are cute little creatures with a quirky hairstyle. They are vibrantly multi-coloured in energizing, bright and fun colours – some have quirky patterns, others are covered head to toe in glitter and many are block colours.

When thinking about happiness, your mind creates pictures and films containing these qualities; they’re often bright, colourful, energizing and sparkle.

Close your eyes and just think about something that makes you happy, what does it look like?

The Bergens are coloured in dismal, grungy, boring and dull colours, like muddy browns, faded greens and greys. They are also heavy, hunched over and downcast.

When you’re feeling unhappy about something, your mind has created an image or film that is often Bergen coloured and feels heavy. If you see yourself in the image or film, you might also find you’re looking down and hunched over.

Happiness Tip #1: If you want to change how you feel about something, start by changing the quality of the image or film in your mind!

One way to do this is by imagining you’re using an Instagram filter on your image or film, you can change the filter until you find your favourite, alter the colour, saturation, brightness, focus, shadows etc.

And go with your gut, if you want to shrink the image, shrink it! If you want to add sparkles, go for it!

Change the quality of the image or film until it feels great for you! Any questions, message me via my red bot.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

2. You Can’t Create lasting happiness by eating it

The Bergens believed that they could only ever experience happiness by eating the trolls, the happiest creatures alive, once a year on a day called Trollstice.

But happiness isn’t a thing you can touch, eat, hold or put in a wheelbarrow. It’s an emotion and feeling that you create using the power of your mind.

If you believe something with such conviction your mind will often create the outcome. The Bergens experienced happiness when they ate the Trolls, because they truly believe that was the only way to feel happiness.

Happiness Tip #2: Do you have a limiting belief you would like to change? Create an affirmation around what you want to believe.

An affirmation is the practice of positive thinking and self-empowerment, it’s a way of fostering a new, powerful belief that is supported by the right mental attitude.

Your affirmation could be….

  • Simple such as ‘I am never sick’ or ‘I am an Ironman Athlete’
  • Or more complex: ‘I am guided in my every step by Spirit who leads me towards what I must know and do.’

Once you’ve created your affirmation, write it down 3 times in the morning and in the evening. If you want to change from an unhelpful to a powerful state during the day, then repeat your affirmation.

Over time, you’ll install this new belief and take your level of happiness to the next level.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

3. We can create happiness, fast

One of the quickest ways to change state is through the power of music and movement – something the Trolls mastered!

The trolls love to sing and dance and do this every day along to their favourite energizing and happiest songs.

When Princess Poppy goes to rescue her friends, Branch is reluctant to join her, so Poppy starts her adventure solo. Poppy feels scared and self-doubt, so she sings a song about overcoming obstacles, succeeding, feeling happy and confident!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/IFuFm0m2wj0″][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Using song and dance the Trolls teach the Begrens how to be happy, who have been depressed for generations. The Bergens install the new belief and thought pattern almost instantly and transform into wonderful happy beings – this is how quick you can re-wire your brain too!

Happiness Tip #3: Not feeling as happy as you’d like? Stick on your favourite song and if you want to, do a little boogie!

I’ve been asking all of my guests for the song that makes them feel fearless, that really gets them going and peps them up, whether they’re driving to an adventure, on an adventure, need extra energy to get over a challenge or want to shift their mood!

Check out the playlist, Fearless, on Spotify or have a listen below!

According to Adventurer, Speaker and Author, Dave Cornthwaite, asking ‘what’s next?’ is the very worst question to ask, which was lucky, as I wanted to talk to Dave about the mindset of adventure and delve into his most recent expedition, Schiller Bike Norway!

If you’re looking….

  • To live more adventurously
  • Enhance your mental toughness
  • Kick back and listen to a great story

…. then you’re going to LOVE this episode!

Dave is a record-breaking adventurer and best known for Expedition1000, an ongoing mission to take on twenty-five different non-motorised journeys, each over 1000 miles in distance.

Last year, he made me rather envious by completing his 14th journey, which consisted of cycling on a floating bike, the schiller bike, along 1243 miles of Norway’s incredible coast.

Dave worked with Hurtigruten and sea cycled the famous 124-year-old ferry and cargo route, known as the Hurtigruten, or “The Express Route”, from Kirkness at the top of Norway all the way down to Bergen.

It is one of the world’s most beautiful sea voyages and as Dave discovered, also most dangerous for those on floating bicycles.

How an adventure mindset can help overcome the seemingly impossible

I wrote this article for Red Bull last week, I’ve been published before but this time it’s with RED BULL – how exciting is that?! So in case you missed it on their site, here it is below 🙂

 

One performance coach for adventurers and endurance athletes reveals the mental tricks needed to overcome the odds whatever the environment.

 

Ever been crippled by the thought of embarking on a big adventure, an adventure teetering on the very edge of possibility? Worried you can’t achieve said goal because it’s too difficult, too strength-sapping?

 

“I’ll let you in on the secret,” says Adelaide Goodeve, “it’s all in the mind.” She should know. A performance coach for adventurers and extreme athletes, when Goodeve’s not speaking to clients one-on-one, she chairs The Wild Show podcast, inviting daring types to discuss what makes them tick and why they’re able to do what they do in achieving the seemingly impossible.

 

To put her wisdom to good use, we asked Goodeve to reveal how to harness the power of your mind for adventure.

 

1. Resilience pays off

Setbacks happen. Being able to bounce back from these stronger than before is the attribute you need to be an adventurer. Between 2009 and 2014 I suffered with severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but as I eventually got better, I started pushing my limits and now I’ve never been in better shape. My proudest achievements include cross-country skiing across Svalbard and becoming an Ironman.

 

2. You can ‘be the egg’

Mental toughness is having the robustness and tenacity to withstand and overcome adverse conditions and difficulties. Adventurer and Marathon Des Sables [a 251 km ultramarathon, AKA the toughest footrace on earth] finisher Sarah Williams uses the mantra ‘Be the Egg’ to remind herself of this. When you place a potato in boiling water it disintegrates; whereas, an egg becomes harder and harder. You have the power to be the egg, to choose to become stronger despite your circumstances.

3. Negative moods turn to positive moods

 

We can influence our thoughts, emotions and physiology independently from our environment. By utilising certain mindset tools and tricks, we’re able to move from a negative, non-useful mood to a positive one, thereby enabling us to persevere during tough times. Margaret Schalachter (above), the first professional female obstacle course racer, has used these techniques to rank fifth in the world and compete in the Peak Death Race and Survival Run.

 

4. Your inner voice can be encouraging

We’re often held back from achieving our goals and turning dreams into reality by negative thoughts – our inner critic. Ultra-endurance athletes learn to swap these negative thoughts for positive ones, transforming their inner critic into a personal cheerleader. Tegan Phillips used this technique to overcome her fear and to persist when cycle touring in Africa and Europe and completing 10 Ironmans in 25 days in New Zealand.

 

5. Courage is key

Living in the mindset of adventure is about taking action towards goals in spite of fear. You have to be willing to take risks to achieve your dreams, even if success is not guaranteed. Adventurer and endurance athlete Sophie Radcliffe (above) felt the fear when she took the risk to quit her job and turn her dream lifestyle into reality. Now five years on she’s succeeded and 2017 was her most successful year yet.

 

6. Trust your intuition

When making decisions in hostile environments, you can get a feeling in your gut that you should or shouldn’t do something. More often than not, adventurers will listen, trust and act on this intuition, using it as a compass to navigate the best path for them. The decisions I’ve made based on my intuition have sometimes seemed illogical, other times they’ve taken me to safety and they’ve all led me right to where I want to be.

 

Having goals is perfectly natural but too often we become overwhelmed and paralysed by them. One popular technique used to thwart this is to break down aspirations into comfortable bitesize pieces. Endurance athlete Laura Kennington (above) says she breaks her goals down into three easily achievable pieces, and by doing this feels empowered to achieve a desired outcome with ease, confidence and calmness.

8. Failure is a learning experience

Ask any adventurer and they’ll say the same thing: failure is a learning experience. To them, failure doesn’t exist; it’s neither in their vocabulary nor thought process. If something goes awry, they discover how to use their new knowledge advantageously, working to find that change to their strategy, so that they achieve their goal next time. Through different learning experiences, adventurer Kiko Matthews is currently attempting to become the fastest female to row the Atlantic, solo and unsupported.

9. Push your comfort zone

So… I've decided to give my Christmas up this year! No tree, no dinner, no bad TV and no time with the family. Instead I've decided to Sleep the Three Peaks for Christmas – by myself – to raise money for the homeless charity Centrepoint. I'll be heading to Wales to sleep on the summit of Snowdon, then to England for Scafell Pike and, on Christmas Eve, I'll be on top of Ben Nevis in Scotland, waking up on Christmas day as the highest person in the UK. As you all know I love sleeping in wild places, but I am very aware that I'm privileged enough to do this for fun whereas many young people don't get the choice. Up to 16,000 people between 16-25 will be at risk of homelessness over Christmas through no fault of their own and during the festive season it's all too easy to get caught up in everything in our own lives and forget these people. I hope to change that. By giving up my Christmas I hope to help raise money to help young people get the choice to sleep rough for fun rather than necessity. Even if my actions helps just one person it will be worth sacrificing the roast! If you can afford to – and no pressure at all, as I understand what it's like around Christmas – do please consider donating. Even just the price of a coffee could make a huge difference. I've set up a JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/extremesleeps …and all money goes directly to Centrepoint. I will of course be tweeting and doing Instagram stories from my challenge if you want to follow @phoebersmith Please do share far and wide if you can – and of course if you feel you can promote it in any way on any of your channels – please do. I (and Centrepoint) would be everso grateful. Thanks in advance and a very Merry Christmas to you all!

A post shared by Phoebe Smith (@phoebersmith) on

We’ve all been guilty of staying in our comfort zone at some point. It feels cosy and safe, but over time we become complacent and our personal growth stagnates. However, we must push our comfort zone and test our limits in any way and on any scale we want to we can even do it in our sleep: adventurer Phoebe Smith (above) camps out at some of mainland Britain’s most extreme points!

 

10. Live your true self

Every adventurous person I have spoken to is living their true self. They’ve all come to this realisation in different ways and stages of their lives. This is how they can have incredible levels of happiness and success.

My good friend Sarah Williams from Season 1 Episode 1 and The Tough Girl Podcast, kindly introduced me to Margaret Schaltcher and Jen Brown.

We now have a podcast mastermind every month or so and brainstorm how we can make our podcasts even better!

Jen introduces Margaret and you may recognize her from Season 2 Episode 1: From Lawyer To Sports Coach: Jen Brown On How To Train And Adventure Courageously – or from her own podcast and brand Sparta Chicks!

Margaret is one of the most badass women I know and her achievements have blown me away!

The races Margaret has done are insane – and of course, I’ve now added them to my bucket list!

Whenever I chat to Margaret I become very excited about life and fitness and feel the fire in belly roaring again, so I really wanted to share with you Margaret’s knowledge and energy,

Spartan Race founder, Jo De Sena, once called Margaret “The Amelia Earhart of Obstacle Course Racing” – so she’s defiantly a very special, and badass woman!

Margaret was the first professional female Obstacle Course Racer, ranking 5th in the world at one time, achieving podium finishes and competing in the world’s gnarliest races, which included running with live chickens, chopping down trees, competing in wetsuits and often going on for more than 24hours!

What I like about Margaret’s story is that she didn’t set out to quit her job and follow her passion for sport professionally, it just happened!

Now Margaret runs her own brand and podcast called Dirt In Your Skirt and works for the Mud Run Guide and other race events.

I love Margaret’s story because it’s one I can relate to. It really inspires me to chase after my dreams, trust the ways of the universe and after chatting to Margaret, I really believe that I can do all of this cool stuff too – like Death Race and Survival Run!

In this episode with Margaret, you’re going to find out her awesome story and the mindset tips that have helped her out of dark places, to re-discover her motivation and stay focused.

When I Lost Confidence for my First Ironman AND How I Got It Back!

[vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]

How often has a lack of confidence stopped you from…

  • Going on an adventure?
  • Entering a race?
  • Attending an event where you don’t know anyone?
  • Throwing yourself into a situation you’re not sure about?
  • Going for that promotion?
  • Doing a talk or presentation?
  • Or doing something awesome?

Have you ever experienced a lack of confidence when on an adventure, training for an event or doing something outside of your comfort zone?

A lack of confidence can plague all areas of our lives. I know I’ve experienced it many times myself!

However, learning how to feel confident in ourselves can change EVERYTHING.

Confidence is when you feel you are up to the task, you have a sense that you know enough! Maybe not everything, but enough! You feel like F*@k!! I‘ve got this!

I believe that confidence is a mental habit that we can develop.

I believe we can retrain our minds to supercharge our confidence whenever we want.

And here’s the kicker… it’s easy to do!

As you may know, last year I became an Ironman and for a moment leading up to it, I doubted myself…

Will I make it? Will I cross the finish line? Will I hear Mike Reilly (the voice of Ironman) shout YOU ARE NOW AN IRONMAN!! Will I get my medal?

I did cross the finish line and using this technique I’m about to share with you, I never doubted myself again and felt really great before and after the Ironman! – although they did pronounce my name wrong!

You can hear all about my experience and my triathlon coach’s, Will Usher’s, experience of Ironman Barcelona here.

In the 7 steps below, I show you how I went from self-doubt to turbo charged self-confidence: HELL YEAH! I CAN do this! I am an Ironman!!!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7067″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%” img_link=”https://adelaidegoodeve.com/2017/07/18/sarah-williams-living-your-dreams/”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_custom_heading text=”7 Steps to Extraordinary Self-Confidence” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Raleway%3A100%2C200%2C300%2Cregular%2C500%2C600%2C700%2C800%2C900|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal”][divider line_type=”Full Width Line” line_thickness=”1″ divider_color=”extra-color-gradient-2″][vc_column_text]

Step 1: Recognise a negative trigger

What situation or conversation – with yourself or someone else, normally produces a negative mood for you?

What was the first thing you noticed that triggered this negative feeling?

Acknowledge it ONLY (don’t sit in it) then put it to one side.

For me, I received an email saying 2 weeks until my Ironman Barcelona, which triggered feelings of self-doubt and fear that I may not complete it.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 2: Draw a large imaginary circle on the floor in front of you

Standing up, draw a large imaginary circle in front of you and notice what colour your circle is.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 3: Recall an experience when you felt an extraordinary amount of self-confidence

It can be in any place; at school, on the sports field, at work, in a relationship, dancing, anything that brings you feelings of extraordinary self-confidence..

Still standing up, close your eyes and get in touch with that time of extraordinary self-confidence, just allow yourself to become more aware of that self-confident feeling.

And as you get in touch with that confidence, notice the things that you can see around you, the smells, sensations, noises, voices in your head, whatever it is…

Feel what it feels like to be in that zone where you think ‘yeah, I can do this’. That confidence.

I look back at some of these moments; when I fully recovered from 4 years of severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, summiting Thorong La Pass, Nepal, (5416m) travelling solo through India, working on an Australian cattle station, riding an ex-Mongol Derby race course across the steppe &  cycling 139km with 1372m ascent in 6 hours in a city I’d just moved to.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”6550″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%” img_link=”https://adelaidegoodeve.com/2017/07/18/sarah-williams-living-your-dreams/”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 4: Step this powerful confidence into your circle

When that feeling of self-confidence is really strong, I’d like you to step into your circle with that feeling of self-confidence flowing into it too.

Your circle is now full of self-confidence and as you look down, you may notice that your circle changed to a new colour that’s associated with that self-confidence.

Now you have that feeling of self-confidence in your circle for you. Anytime you want to be in that circle, that self-confidence will be there for you.

I imagine feeling this amazing self-confidence swirling all around me in this gold sparkling colour, filling me up, seeping into every cell and every fibre of my body. I continue to do this and feel these incredible things in my circle until I see myself glowing gold – really get into it and let your imagination run wild!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 5: Solidify your extraordinary confidence

For a moment just step out of your circle and then step in again and notice how that extraordinary self-confidence is just there for you, anytime you want it.

Do that enough times so each time you step into your circle, you just know that your self-confidence is there, surrounding you and brilliantly swirling in your circle. Inside is that incredible feeling of self-confidence, just there for you.

Then when you’re happy with that, step out.

I do this a multiple of times until I’m really sure that my self-confidence is there for me, in that circle – like how you’re certain that day follows night or the sun rises in the sky!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 6: Recall your negative trigger from Step 1

Imagine you’re coming to your negative trigger, where in the past there would have been trouble.

But, this time, immediately your self-confidence circle appears.

Step into your circle as you go into that situation and notice how it feels coming from this new place of amazing self-confidence.

And how by being this new self-confident you, the whole situation unfolds totally differently.

Feel what it feels like to have these feelings of self-confidence flowing through you.

And everywhere you go this circle appears anytime you need it, just like a spotlight following you around everywhere. The quality of self-confidence is everywhere.

For example, I see the 2-week to Ironman email arriving in my inbox and as soon as I see it, my shining gold circle immediately appears in front of me and I jump into it. Instantly those warm feelings of self-confidence embrace me and gold is swirling all around me.

I feel how it feels to have this extraordinary self-confidence as I see and read the email – I feel super excited and can’t wait for race day!

I know I’ve got this as my circle is following me everywhere I go.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 7: Practice makes perfect!

Now we’re going to practice your situation with your new found extraordinary confidence, to really strengthen your neuropathways – as they say, practice makes perfect!

Pour your wonderful colour of self-confidence that fills your circle into your situation and as you see everything turning that amazing colour, feel what it feels like to be self-confident.

Run through your situation from getting up in the morning to going to sleep at night, paint everything with this incredible colour.

As you go through your situation, you have the posture of a confident person: your back is straight, shoulders are back, head is held high and you’re smiling.

Notice the sights, smells, sounds and textures of the things around you and that you touch.

How does it feel experiencing all of this, knowing that you’ve got this? That you know enough and have the power to achieve this?

Feel the amazing experience and colour flow into you, filling you up. You are now glowing with this outstanding self-confidence. You feel epic!

For Example…

I pour the wonderful gold from my circle into each day leading up to and including my Ironman race, feeling what it feels like to be self-confident during this time.

Everything is shimmering with an incredible gold as I run through my race plan and race day.

Each day I get up feeling confident that I can do it. I nail all of my training, nutrition, morning rituals and sleep.

It feels awesome to have this powerful self-confidence with me throughout my entire race and the days leading up to it.

I walk and run with a great, confident posture, those at the gym and my trainer comment how confident I look and how they know I’m going to have an incredible race day.

I know I’ve got this, I know enough and know I have the power to cross the finish line.

On race day I can see and hear the crowds cheering me on, my wetsuit feels great, my transitions are seamless. I feel strong and confident. My gels taste wonderfully sweet. As I come up to the last few kilometres I hear the crowds going wild, the red carpet feels wonderful under my feet, I cross the finish line and as I do my epic photo pose I hear Mike Reilly shout YOU ARE AN IRON MAN!!!!!!!

As I take everything I’ve learnt from this, my colour transforms into a magical rainbow and I pour it though my race day and those days and into me now!

It fills me up and I can feel the self-confidence bubbling irreplaceably inside of me. Ironman Barcelona… here I F*@KING COME!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you have any fears about money? Do you want financial freedom? Do you desire to go on an adventure, book a challenge or become a parent to a furry child?

Money is on our mind when dreaming of a new lifestyle, adventure or a sports event, like an Ironman.

With me today is Shannon McLay, one of the few female financial CEO’s and we aim to get you thinking differently about money.

On a side note, did you know that there are more CEOs in financial services called John than women?! It’s crazy, especially when 80% of consumer and household spending is managed by women and we make up half the workforce!

Shannon McLay left her financial services career at Merrill Lynch 4 years ago to found the Financial Gym and has been creating gym magic ever since.

Shannon and her team of 4 women teach their clients how to manage their money in a fun way and get financially fit: making their lifestyle work around your money – and they have a 90% success rate!

We don’t want money to get in the way of you achieving your dream, so tune in to pick up some money wisdom, such as no spending days, side hustling and how to plan and save effectively, along with some mind-blowing stories!

Love Yourself On Valentines Day And Forevermore With THIS Habit

[vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]

I love Valentine’s day, I think celebrating our love for our partner is wonderful.

However, while love is in the air, I want to take the opportunity to talk to you about self-love and self-care, which are vital for thriving health and a successful life.

Self-love and self-care are not selfish acts. Without being kind and loving to yourself, you can’t turn up for someone else in the same way.

One of the most powerful self-love and self-care habits, that empowers you to kickstart your day and program your mind to turn your dreams into reality, is a morning routine!

A morning routine is one of the key traits of a high performing person – they know that if they win their morning, they can win their day!

On The Wild Show, Adventure photographer and Storyteller, Ian Finch tells us how by using his vision board, affirmations, and a gratitude journal, he was able to overcome his fear of becoming an adventure photographer and increase the levels of success in his professional life!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7351″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%” img_link=”https://adelaidegoodeve.com/2017/07/18/sarah-williams-living-your-dreams/”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

A Morning Routine empowers you to….

  • Invest in yourself and grow
  • Develop a self-love and self-care practice
  • Create positive momentum first thing in the morning
  • Set a vision and direction for your day
  • Enhance your sleep quality
  • By starting your day focused, productive and successful, the rest of your day will follow suit and so will your life – you create a snowball effect!
  • AND you’ll be able to show up in the best way possible for your loved ones

Each person’s morning routine is slightly different, you have to find one that works for you! Here are my 5 favourite morning routine habits…

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_custom_heading text=”My 5 Favourite Morning Routine Habits” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Raleway%3A100%2C200%2C300%2Cregular%2C500%2C600%2C700%2C800%2C900|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

1. I pause

When BBC Radio 1 wakes me up, I take a few deep breathes, smile and hydrate.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

2. I journal

I enjoy in writing my journal by hand. It’s more cathartic for me and keeps me away from blue light that much longer.

I write what’s on my mind – sometimes pages, sometimes nothing, it depends how I’m feeling.

However, I always write;

  • 3 things I am grateful for – they have to be different each morning!
  • 3 things that would make today great
  • And my Affirmation: I am…. – this can be anything you like.

By focusing on the positive you are making these neuropathways stronger and short-circuiting the negative thought patterns, so these pathways become weaker.

Studies have shown that by consistently focusing on the positive thoughts and behaviours, your happiness will significantly improve and you’ll create the levels of personal, professional and financial success that you desire.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

3. I breathe

I have been meditating for years and I love taking this time to lie in bed, beneath the duvet to experience peacefulness.

At the moment I’m enjoying Headspace and Calm is also a great app.

I also take this moment to switch my core muscles on with breathing exercises.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

4.  I visionise

I stand in front of my vision board and ask my self what do I want?

I answer with my top 3 goals.

I then ask myself, how am I going to achieve that?

Then I immerse myself in a stunning film achieving these 3 things – I deeply envision how it feels, what I see and hear.

I take all of this and turn it into a colour, it’s usually sparking gold with snowflakes and I flood this into the future; a week, a month, 6 months, a year and further depending on my goals.

I then take everything I’ve learnt and flood it back into me today.

I take all of this and the colour and run through my day, today.

Then when my unconscious mind is ready I come back to the room.

To really ramp it up, play your favourite inspirational soundtrack!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

5. I train (and eat!)

Before I train, I will jam something in my mouth to fuel my workout and hydrate some more!

I am training for two adventures and the Braveheart Triathlon later this year, so follow the workout that has been set for me.

It’s important to move in the morning to get your heart rate up and to feel energized – you don’t need to train for a triathlon, a walk outside would do wonders too.

Exposing your skin to sunlight in the morning is also important for melatonin secretion, which regulates your body’s sleep-wake cycle.

As Sleep Expert Shawn Stevenson says, by getting more light during the day and less light at night, you’re on your way to having a magic sleep formula!

How to Overcome Fear in 6 Steps

[vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]I was recently asked; How can I overcome my fear of skiing down red slopes? So thought I would write a blog post on how to overcome fear in 6 easy steps!

Fear is completely natural and often a good thing.

It’s a feeling and emotional state that we sometimes experience, just like happiness, inner peace & confidence.

Fear is an integral part of being human, as it helps keep us alive by protecting us from potential threats and dangers, like telling us to run from dinosaurs all those thousands of years ago!

However, in our world today, fear can crop up in unhelpful ways.

For example, many of us are often scared to;

  • Take the first step towards our dream or goal
  • Apply for that promotion at work
  • Embark on an adventure
  • To enter that race
  • Attend that event on our own
  • Among many other things

So in certain circumstances, we need to learn how to overcome fear, use it to our advantage and not let it stop us.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7292″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%” img_link=”https://adelaidegoodeve.com/2017/07/18/sarah-williams-living-your-dreams/”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Listen to Sarah Williams on The Wild Show talking about how to take the first step towards achieving your dream.

A time where I experienced the greatest fear, was when I was extremely unhappy at university.

I felt pressured to return to university after fully recovering from my ill health, despite having a deep gut feeling that it wasn’t for me and it was taking me further away from life’s purpose.

In my second year, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Vancouver, and being away from pressures at home, having the time and space to think, and working with a coach, I began to really understand what I wanted to do and that I could do it.

Fear of disappointing my parents and fear of going off the beaten track was why I ended up returning to university and then it held me back from quitting university.

With my coach, I grew more courageous, brave and less fearful, by changing the focus of my internal dialogue and the scenarios I played in my head.

I switched my scenarios and internal dialogue from playing failure, hopelessness, stress, low self-belief and disappointment to success, happiness, confidence and inner peace.

This made all the difference and I was able to quit university in spite of my fear. I was excited about my new path, filled with the unknown.

Do you want to overcome your fear? Follow the 6 steps below!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_custom_heading text=”6 STEPS TO OVERCOMING FEAR” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Raleway%3A100%2C200%2C300%2Cregular%2C500%2C600%2C700%2C800%2C900|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 1: Remember a time when…..

Close your eyes and remember a time in your life when you felt really excited, happy and were laughing. What’s the first thing that comes to mind?

For me it would be building a snow hole in Svalbard and we were throwing snowballs at each other and trying to push each other down the fluffy snowy slopes – I was super excited to sleep in a snow hole and was in stitches from laughing!

Whatever that time maybe, just see a picture representing it in front of you.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 2: Representing your positive emotion

What does that image look like?

  • Is it bright or dark?
  • Is it colourful or black and white?
  • Is the image defined or clouded?
  • Does it look rough or smooth?
  • Does it look hot or cold?
  • Is the image big or small?
  • Is the image far away from you or close?

My image looks really bright, with intense and beautiful colours, it’s is sparkling with silver glitter, the image is defined with a smooth surface, it’s huge and really close to me, with a warm glow emanating from it.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 3: Facing your fear

Now put your positive image to one side and remember a time in your life when you felt fear, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?

Perhaps you were scared about a forthcoming adventure, to go to an event solo, make the leap to change careers, enter that race.

Whatever that time maybe, see a picture representing that in front of you.

A fearful image is often dark, big and overwhelming, slimy or spiky, very heavy and cold.

It’s very important that once you have it, you don’t linger here, move straight onto Step 4.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 4: Overcoming your fear

Now change the qualities of your fear image to match the qualities of your powerful positive emotion image.

Think of it a bit like when you’re in Instagram and adjusting the brightness, saturation and contrast of your photo or adding a filter!

You can get really creative here! So just play around until your image feels positively charged and powerful!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 5: Watching your wonderful film

Once your image is just right, I want you to run the image in front of you as a film, as if you’re watching yourself in a cinema.

How does that look?

Edit that film until it’s exactly how you want it to look.

Maybe you need to adjust their posture so their shoulders are back, put a smile on their face, brighten the colours, make it warmer, etc.

Change anything you like until your film would win an Oscar for the best positive looking!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 6: Stepping into the new, awesome you

Now step into the film and really feel what it feels like to step into their shoes.

Really embrace those positive powerful feelings that are flooding into every cell and every fibre of your body.

Truly enjoy every moment, bask in it all its glory and think about how it feels to be like that now and in the future.

You can stay here for as long as you like.

And then imagine you’ve got really used to being this way, it’s just second nature to you. It’s been so many days, weeks and months that you’ve felt this incredibly amazing.

Just feel how it feels to be who you are in this new way, how it allows for something magical to occur…

Then when you’re ready, bring yourself slowly back and notice how it feels to have that change occurred already.

While mountain biking, I love listening to podcasts and I recently heard from an inspirational guy called Charlie Jabeley on The Rich Roll Podcast, that stories are the search engine of the heart and I just loved this.

A significant amount of my work with my clients is about telling stories, to the conscious and unconscious mind. It is these stories that create the greatest transformation.

And so this phrase really struck me and reminded me of today’s episode, which is all about stories….

It’s really great to have Ian Finch on the podcast and have Gav Kaps introduce Ian, as we all met 4 years ago along with our other mutual friend Tim Hopkins.

We met at Explorer’s Connect’s Expedition Leadership Course at a time when we were all looking to change the direction our lives were heading in.

It’s been really wonderful to support and follow each other’s journey… 

Gav is now living in the most awesome adventure van and running Osprey Imagery, using drones to create stunning films, imagery and maps!

The epic drone shots in Laura Kennington’s and my film for the British Mountaineering Council women’s film competition, Miles To Go, is down to Gav!

Tim has created an amazing app called The Land App, which enables the streamlining of land management.

And Ian Finch, my guest today, has become an outstanding adventure photographer, giving Chris Burkard and Jimmy Chin a run for their money! Ian has also been on some awesome adventures, including Pull Of The North.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7310″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Pull Of The North involved Ian and his team negotiating the Yukon River by canoe to study the region’s remaining native cultures.

Ian is also a natural storyteller and his knowledge of folklore, tribal stories and the life of trees will leave you enthralled and wanting to hear more – I know I did!

For Ian, adventure comes from a place of the heart, passion and learning, where you just feel so deeply that you must fully immerse yourself in nature and a different native culture.

You disconnect from the world’s modern distractions and pressures to reconnect and plug into the vibrations and energy of nature.

Ian is looking through his camera lens for the wonderment in nature and adventure, along with the emotion, dirtiness and authentic human interaction.

Through the power of stories, Ian Finch takes us on many journeys, from canoeing down the Yukon River and connecting with nature and the native cultures, to observing a bear’s fascinating salmon eating habits to pondering the life of trees.

Sit back and relax, as you’re transported into different worlds.

3 Steps To Improve Your Inner Voice

[vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]

How often has your inner voice stopped you from achieving your goals and dreams?

I would guess that for a lot of us, our negative inner voice has stopped us from;

  • Putting ourselves into uncomfortable social situations where we might meet like-minded people
  • Starting a new business, writing a book and/or getting our ideas out there into the world
  • Sticking to a new training program or diet
  • Preventing us from adopting new habits and ditching the old, not so useful ones
  • Learning a new and incredible skill, like climbing or open water swimming, because we might not be able to do it or worried about what other people think
  • Embarking on an adventure because we’re scared to go on our own or not sure if we’re good enough
  • And many other things…

I’ve experienced all of this myself, and I know many people whose inner voice has also left them lacking self-confidence, feeling like an imposter and believing that they can’t do something.

Well, I say enough is enough. It’s not fair that we shouldn’t be able to influence our inner critic and transform it into our positive force for good.

Our inner voice is always with us and learning how to transform it into our personal cheerleader, so we can feel worthy, self-confident, positive, powerful; so we can hit our goals; so we can have a can-do attitude… now, that’s a real game changer.

How would your life transform if you could improve your inner voice for the better? Follow the 3 steps below to find out!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7300″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%” img_link=”https://adelaidegoodeve.com/2017/07/18/jo-pickard/”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_custom_heading text=”Here are 3 Steps To Improving Your Inner Voice” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Raleway%3A100%2C200%2C300%2Cregular%2C500%2C600%2C700%2C800%2C900|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 1: The Stop

Notice when your inner voice is being negative and immediately say “Stop” – out loud or to yourself. 

This will give you the opportunity to step in and change it.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 2: Change Your Negative Inner Voice

Close your eyes and think about how your negative inner voice sounds.

Use the tricks below to alter this voice, so the voice loses its power… like when you lose radio reception when you go into a deep tunnel.

I really enjoy turning the volume down and then pushing the source of the sound so far away, that I can no longer hear it… ahh bliss!!

Different things work for different people, so give them a go and discover which ones work best for you!

Ways to distort the sound of your inner voice

  • Change the voice tone to one that makes you laugh e.g. Patsy from Absolutely Fabulous, Miranda Hart, Michael Macintyre etc.
  • Speed up the voice so it sounds super fast and the words blend together, like it used to sound when you fast forwarded a video tape
  • Use a knob to turn down the volume so you can barely hear it or a flicker to mute it
  • Other ways you could change sound: slow it down, add distortion like a robot, add crackles like someone is tuning it and out, make it fuzzy, make it a sing-song voice or anything else that works for you!

Ways to move the source of the sound

  • Push it really far away from you so you can hardly hear it
  • Move it behind or below you, to the opposite side of where it’s coming from, outside, under water, into a hole, whatever floats your boat!
  • Watch the source of the sound roll over an edge into a vast chasm

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Step 3: Creating Your Powerful Positive Inner Voice

This is my favourite part because you can get as creative and crazy as you like! 

If I want my inner voice to exude confidence, it sounds very firm, clear, loud(ish) and has a ‘Don’t Give A F*ck’ quality about it!

If I want my inner voice to emit calmness, it speaks very slowly and sounds serene, as if an angel was speaking.

Ways to create your supportive and loving sound

  • Adjust the volume so it’s just right
  • Make the voice tone sound congruent to what you desire, for example, if you desire self-confidence, then have your voice sound clear, firm and energetic. However, if you want to feel calm and relaxed, have your voice slow down and sound peaceful and beautiful
  • Bring the source of the sound in front of you and close to you, wherever it feels the most powerful and loving

Creating your positive stories and phrases

  • Hear your new fabulous inner voice saying to you all of the amazing things that you want to hear, such as I can do this, I am calm, positive and serene, I am beautiful etc.
  • Only use positive language to give your brain the best direction about what you want, for example, instead of saying I don’t want to feel stressed >> say I want to feel calm and peaceful

This clip from one of my favourite Cool Runnings will give you some inspiration!

Transformation can happen very quickly and to ensure your inner voice transforms into a real positive powerhouse, practice these steps a few times until it becomes easy and automatic.

So now is the time to remove “can’t” from your vocabulary. The answer is: YOU CAN!

Is this really it? Is this what I really want to do with my life? What do I really want to do? Will I succeed or fail? Should I stay where I’m comfortable?

At some point in our life, we have all asked ourselves these questions, or variants of them, but it takes a certain type of person to take action on them.

And If you’re listening to this podcast, I’m reckoning you’re that type of person

When Sophie Radcliffe started asking herself these questions, she was feeling unhappy and unfulfilled with where she was in life, so Sophie decided to take action and change her life.

Starting off small-ish, Sophie began training for adventure races and cycled London to Paris at weekends, amongst other exciting physical challenges.

All at a time when Sweaty Betty and Lulu Lemon did not exist and it was quite unusual to get up early and go training!

Still dissatisfied with where she was and yearning for even more adventures and challenges, Sophie decided to leave her 8 year career at the UK’s fastest growing tech company to start her own business and has gone on to become a successful professional endurance adventure athlete, motivational speaker and blogger.

Sophie has been inspiring and motivating me for years and I’m VERY excited to have her on my podcast!

In this episode, Sophie is going to excite, inspire and drive you to take action and even more steps towards living your most authentic self and importantly, living your life to the full.

In the words of Sophie Radcliffe, you have One Life. Live It.

Warning: Side effects of listening to this podcast include happiness, motivation and drive to take action on achieving your dreams. It will likely lead you to having too much fun, laughter and living life to the full.

One Trick To Beat Pre-Race (or Event) Nerves

[vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]

If you suffer from pre-race or event nerves but want to feel excited, calm and confident instead, then start adding this one word to your vocabulary.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Pre-race nerves affect athletes at every level and often stems from your body asking ‘Are you sure you want to do this?’, as it knows the stress it’s about to be put through, and the fear of failure – and/or fear of success.

Experiencing pre-race nerves is perfectly normal and can be beneficial, as the physical and psychological symptoms of nervousness get your body and mind in the best state for your race.

World record holder and adventurer, Squash Falconer, sees feeling nervous before taking off for a paraglide as a healthy part of the experience, helping her prime her body and mind for the event and reminding her to have a healthy respect for the laws of physics to keep her out of trouble.

Listen to Squash Falconer on The Wild Show podcast to discover how you can get into an ‘anything-is-possible’ mindset and enhance your mental resilience.

However, when your pre-race nerves and anxiety take you for a ride and sabotage your race, that’s when you have a problem. So what can you do about it?

More often than not, people unwittingly talk and think their way into their pre-race nerves, and fortunately, it’s just as easy to talk and think your way out of them, into a positive and useful state of your desires.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7232″ alignment=”” animation=”Fade In” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Many people become stuck in thinking that you cannot change how you react to or feel about something – that you are passive towards it. But If you’re reading this, I know you’re smarter than them!

For example, I hear many tell me that they always get very nervous before a race – that the race makes them feel very nervous.

However, the problem with this statement is that it’s not completely true…

As the race is not making them feel nervous, what is causing them to feel nervous is themselves.

We can’t change the race, from the course and weather to other participants and technical difficulties. And it’s not fair that we should be left at the whim of something we can’t influence.

Now, I don’t have a magic spell for you, but I do have one word for you that is just as magical: Dû

The dû verb helps us to move from something we can’t do anything about, something passive, such as ‘My race is coming up and it’s making me feel nervous’, to something active, to something we can influence, such as ‘My race is coming up and I am dûing nervousness about it’.

Dû says it is you who is unconsciously and unintentionally involved in feeling (or I should say dûing) nervousness.

It is your thoughts and nervous system that are creating this nervous feeling and therefore you have the power to influence it.

So the dû allows us to recognise that we have some degree of influence over how we feel in situations that we used to think we were passive in.

By using dû, it highlights when you are in this passive relationship to stuff, such as race day, and it allows you to recognise when you have some degree of influence, such as how you feel on race day.

I have come across many people who are stuck in creating the adventurous life they want because they lack confidence, self-worth, self-belief, negative self-talk and have anxious and fearful thoughts, beliefs and feelings around things such as money, adventuring, escaping the 9-5 and joining outdoorsy groups where they don’t know anyone.

So British adventure athlete Laura Kennington and I wanted to inspire those women who have got in the way of their own greatness, to embark on that adventure that they’ve been putting off and achieve their greatness.

It doesn’t matter what gender, age, shape, size, colour, ability, or religion you are – and I know nature certainly doesn’t care – adventure is open to all of us. It’s important to our health, well-being, personal development and living-life-to-the-full experience.

With the British Mountaineering Council and all of the other kick ass and bad ass women out there, we want to create a new narrative. One of diversity, passion, determination, triumph, and transformation. We want to celebrate with you for being a ‘real’ outdoor woman. There is no ideal or perfect one as some of the media and society portrays – we are it.

So what do you think of the film? AND what is stopping YOU from going on your greatest adventure? Let me know in the comments below!

And a BIG thank you to Sky Rise Productions and Osprey Imagery for filming, editing and producing the film :)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][divider line_type=”No Line”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

The Number 1 Secret That High Performers Know

[vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]

If you train hard for athletic events and/or adventures, you may be wondering why it’s important to understand how your brain works.

You get why the ‘Top 2 percenters’ use high-performance coaches, they want to take home gold, but you’re not sure how it could help you enhance your performance and life.

With that in mind, here’s the number 1 secret that high performers know about their brain.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

You have the power to influence the way your brain is wired and that by changing the way your brain is wired, changes your thoughts, emotions and physiology.

Pretty cool, huh?

Now, how quickly this neurological change can happen may surprise you…because it’s really quick!

Imagine that one day you walk in on your partner in bed with someone else, your love for your partner would instantly change to feelings of dislike.

And this is an example of how quickly your neurology can change: Instantly.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

Another way to think about how you can re-wire your brain is by thinking of your brain like sheep in a field.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7224″ alignment=”” animation=”Fade In” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][vc_column_text]

The herd of sheep always follow the Chief Sheep and each day they all follow the same pathway in the field.

Over time, this path is worn down, it becomes deeper and deeper in the field and eventually, the grass disappears leaving dirt.

Then, one day, the Chief Sheep decides that the adjacent field has much more luscious, delicious grass than their current field and it’s scattered with daisy’s, which makes it prettier too!

The grass is literally greener on the other side!

So the Chief Sheep decides to lead his herd to this new, beautiful field for grazing and instantly, a new pathway is created.

Over time, this wonderful new pathway becomes worn and well travelled. And the old, not so useful pathway is reclaimed by nature until it’s so feint, you can no longer see it.

And this is exactly how our brains work!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

The more we use a neuropathway, the more worn and easier to use it becomes. However, our brain cannot tell the difference between useful and un-useful neuropathways, only which pathway is used the most.

This means that if you are unconsciously using a neuropathway that triggers stress more than calmness, your brain will make it easier for the signal to travel down the neuropathway that creates stress.

However, as described in this blog post, with the right tools and know-how, it is often quick and easy to change the neuropathway to a much more positive and useful one, such as one that creates calmness. This new fantastic pathway then becomes the brain’s favourite and the old one is soon forgotten.

So instead of feeling stressed, having the negative thoughts and physiological symptoms associated with stress, you will be able to stop these things and experience all the wonderful feelings and things that come with being utterly calm and relaxed.

How would your life change if you could be in a calm and relaxed state all of the time?

5 Ways To Overcome Adversity

[vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]

When I was 18 years old I was travelling In India and ended up in the hospital due to dehydration and continuous vomiting (nice!). The same thing happened in Namibia (doubly nice!). The fire had already been lit during my A levels, but this poured gasoline on the flames and my health spiralled downwards. For 4 years I suffered from severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/M.E.), IBS and irritable bladder syndrome.

I found myself outside of the NHS remit and so took things into my own hands. I decided that I would fully recover and not stop until I did – and I succeeded.

So I understand what it’s like to overcome adversity, along with these 4 experts I heard talk at an event held by IGO Adventures last week. Here are 5 things you can do to overcome adversity.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

1. Don’t take no for an answer

Ex-professional international rugby player Shane Williams was once told that he was too short to play rugby.

But he didn’t accept this and worked extremely hard to prove them wrong.

Shane trained tirelessly with a smile on his face, adapting the game to how he wanted to play it.

Instead of getting overpowered in scrums, he trained to be quick and nimble so he could outrun his opponents.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

2. It’s all about how you approach adversity: what can I do about it?

Hugo Turner is a professional adventurer and athlete, along with his twin brother, Ross.

Huge and Ross take on, confront and overcome extreme challenges to support research programs and uncover new findings that will help create knowledge and accelerate developments in particular areas of human study and medical understanding.

When Hugo was young, he also broke his next, so he’s definitely no stranger to adversity.

Hugo’s number one tip was when faced with adversity: choose how you can deal with and overcome the situation to the best of your ability.

You have the power to influence your mind, outside of the environment that surrounds you.

It’s down to you to choose how you feel, act and think in these situations.

Choose to occupy the most useful state at that time, choose which path will make you happy in the long run and plough away until you’ve overcome that challenge.

And it often helps to follow your gut in these moments too.

3. Focus on what you can do, not what you can’t

Anne Usher, Paralympic gold medallist, was following her passion for mountain biking before a spinal injury resulted in her no longer being able to ride.

Mountain biking was Anne’s everything and having lost this, her life spiralled down until she hit rock bottom.

It was around this time that Anne asked herself: How can I join the love of sport and physiotherapy together?

The journey of answering this question led her to a chance encounter with someone putting together a kayaking team for Rio!

With just 7 weeks of training, Anne qualified onto the GB team and this led her to winning gold at Rio!

Anne says she had every excuse not to train for the GB tryouts: she was a full-time mum, got seasick, never been on a boat etc.

But instead of focusing on all of the reasons why she couldn’t do it — Anne thought yes I can and focused on why she could do it.

So when faced with adversity, think of all the reasons why you can overcome something – not why you can’t.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7197″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

4. Cultivate a positive mindset

A positive mindset doesn’t just come from thinking positively.

A resilient positive mindset stems from an accumulation of powerful beliefs, thoughts and actions that you can do something, that you can overcome adversity.

And as Peak Performance coach Sandy Loder said, just like climbing Everest requires a team, no one overcomes adversity on their own.

You need to believe in yourself that you can do it to start the journey and you also need a team of supporters around you, to help you on your journey.

Keeping positive is exhausting, I know, I’ve been there, so having people around you who can boost your morale is important. It’s also important to have unconscious positive habits built into your day and routine.

Set yourself realistic and reasonable goals, celebrate small wins every day and don’t beat yourself up when things don’t quite go to plan, be flexible and just keep chipping away. If you do this, you will overcome adversity and achieve your big goal

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

5. Be in the most useful emotional state for that moment

You have the power to influence your thoughts, beliefs, actions and physiology.

I believe a positive mindset is important, however, sometimes, you want and need to feel more than positive. Perhaps you want to feel calm, healing, energy, powerful, ambivalent, or humorous.

When I was sick, I was positive the majority of the time, but I needed something more. I discovered that in order to fully recover from CFS/M.E. I needed to have a calm and serene energy.

It was re-wiring my brain to this default state that enabled me to bounce back stronger, faster and healthier than I ever have been.

As these experts have said, you have the power to choose how you feel at any given time and changing your thoughts and your beliefs, changes your physiology. And this can transform your life.

1. Don’t Keep It A Secret!

Start talking about your dream to friends and family, announce it on your Facebook timeline, post it in your favourite Facebook group and share it with people at events.

This is the pivotal moment, once you say it out loud, you have started your journey and have taken an important step to achieving your dream.

Now you’ve committed to your achieving your dream, all sorts of things will start to happen that wouldn’t have occurred otherwise.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

2. Trust In The Process

You may feel like you’re travelling down a road with numerous blind bends and a couple of potholes, you don’t what’s ahead of you or how you’re going to get there, but don’t worry, it’s normal to feel this way!

The important thing is, is that you’re travelling down the road that will lead you to achieving your dream.

Just keep going, chipping away at your small goals that will eventually add up to you achieving your big goal.

Place your trust in the process, you can influence whether you achieve your dream, by simply taking small steps towards it.

3. Ask For Help

So you know what you want to achieve and you’re a bit fuzzy on exactly how you’re going to get there, this is the time that you start asking for help!

Reach out to people in different communities, in your network and those who have written or talked about the thing you want to do.

A great way to build relationships is by asking that person out for coffee or a drink, not to pick their brains directly, but to get to know them and at the end, they might offer to help – you can always offer to help them first.

Or find the person you want to talk to on LinkedIn and see who you know who can introduce you. Third connections are no problem, just ask your friend nicely!

If you want to build a relationship with an influencer, follow them on Instagram/Twitter/Facebook or LinkedIn, comment and like on their feed every day.

See something you know they will like and will add value to them, then tweet it to them or tag them in it. So when you ask for help, they know who you are and are more likely to put some time aside for you.

4. Strengthen Your Adventure Mindset

Strengthening your adventure mindset will help you overcome the impossible and be resilient in the face of setbacks.

The three most important elements of an adventure mindset are:

  1. Chunking down your goals into small steps
  2. Listening to and trusting your intuition with your decisions and choices
  3. Resilience – being able to positively influence our thoughts, emotions and physiology independent of our outside environment

A great way to enhance your resilience, especially when things get tough or your motivation wanes, is to repeat to yourself a mantra, such as;

5. Surround yourself with people whose cups are half full

Jim Rohn, an American entrepreneur, famously once said that “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with”

And he’s not wrong, as my podcast guests would also agree.

Adventurer, Presenter and Speaker, Squash Falconer, emphasised this point in Season 2 Episode 4, by saying that you must stick around positive people. Those who see their glass to be half full, not half empty.

And when you come across those whose glass is half empty, don’t let their negative energy affect you and try not hang out with them.

Have you ever thought to yourself ‘I can’t do that, that’s impossible?’

This limiting thought and belief that our dreams and/or goals are impossible, is enough to paralyse even the most driven person in the world and is why many dreams are left at the back of our mind gathering dust.

Would you like to move past this?

Would you like to shift your mindset to be more positive?

Where you focus on all that you can do and your dream is in fact at the end of a road with a few blind corners, all you have to do is take one small step after another.

Well, you’re in luck, for with me on today’s episode is Adventurer, Presenter and Speaker Squash Falconer!

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7146″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

I knew I had to get Squash on the podcast when I read this on her website,

“I believe I was born on a lucky and brilliant day because I’m a naturally happy and very positive person, however, on that day I also believe someone said, let’s have a laugh and remove the part of the brain that says, “you mustn’t do that, it’s impossible”

This sentence really intrigued about Squash’s mindset and I wanted to get into the nitty-gritty of how Squash thinks, to discover the techniques she uses to achieve things that many of us would shy away from.

Squash holds the world recorder for the highest bum board while climbing Cho Oyu – a 7000m peak in China, and being the first British woman to paraglide off Mont Blanc. AND Squash has summited Mount Everest!

So I’m really excited to jump into these topics with Squash…

  • How you can build mental resilience and toughness
  • What you need to do to realise your dreams
  • How to overcome self-doubt and limiting beliefs
  • How to find the right balance between respecting fear and facing it
  • We cover many tantalising stories of adventure!
  • And much more!!

I really hope this episode helps you start taking action to realising your dreams, moves you further along your journey and provides you with some mental resilience tips that will take your game to the next level.

Let me know if you need any help, I’m only an email away at adelaide@lillywild.com

Enjoy the show and Stay Wild!

Over the years I have met Phoebe Smith many times at different events and have wild camped with Phoebe though her books.

Phoebe is a wonderfully kind adventurous soul, who I know you’re going to grow to love as you listen to this podcast episode.

An Author, Extreme Sleeper and Editor of the Wanderlust Travel Magazine, Phoebe also seeks the small things in life, because you’ll one day look back and realise they were the big things!

For Phoebe, these small things are pushing her sleep and daring to go more wild each time.

And in 2014 this has led her to become the first person to sleep at all extreme points of mainland Britain including the centre most point, solo and on consecutive nights.

Phoebe believes you should collects sleeps – not things.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”7130″ alignment=”center” animation=”None” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

And after this interview I wholeheartedly agree!

So I’m now thinking of where I can go sleep and wake up in the perfect place for Ironman training! (I’m open to any suggestions!)

We cover in this episode what it’s like to chase your dreams, follow your gut and face your fears, things anyone can do, because as Phoebe says, she is just an ordinary person who knows how to sleep!

To help you on your journey, we dive into…

  • What wild camping is?
  • What are bothies?
  • Why camping is important
  • Why you should try mindful walking
  • What Phoebe’s first solo wild camp was like
  • How to overcome your fear
  • How to go wild camping for the first time
  • Is wild camping legal in the UK?
  • AND much more!!

So now I imagine you’re thinking that this episode sounds really cool and you can’t wait to listen, but hold on Adelaide, what’s Extreme Sleeping? Well you’ll just have to listen and find out!

I really hope you enjoy this inspiring episode as much as I enjoyed having the conversation with Phoebe

If you have any questions send me an email to adelaide@lillywild.com 🙂

Last year I met with Will Usher in a Costa Coffee that’s next to Guildford’s train station. I had no idea what to expect, I just knew this was the man who would be able to help me fulfil a dream I’ve had for around 8 years: to become an Ironman.

I was slightly nervous and as I had arrived first, I was left making the unnerving decision of whether I buy my own coffee first or wait for the person to come and then buy the coffee for us.

I know it really doesn’t matter, but I never know which is the best course of action and it’s a conundrum I still face today!

So once we had a steaming hot coffee in front of us, we opened Will’s laptop and started looking at the possible races I could enter!

My surroundings melted away as I was absorbed with awe and excitement about what I might achieve next year!

I was so excited and nervous. I was coming completely cold into every discipline: swimming, cycling and running.

At this point I had never been open water swimmer, run more than 15km nor did I own a road bike.

As Will says in this conversation, I was a ‘very interesting project’.

We chose Ironman Barcelona as it’s a super flat course compared to others and it was also Will’s major race of the year, so at least I wouldn’t be doing it solo.

This was September 2016.

Fast forward to September 30th 2017 at 10:44:03pm I crossed the finish line and became an Iron(wo)man, in just 13:55:20!

I won’t mention that Will did his in only 9:50:45, crossing the finish line at 6:17:43pm, finishing in the top 50 of his age group!

With Will’s help and training I was able to fulfil my dream, but over this year I have accumulated many questions for him that I have yet to ask him and I also wanted to find out in detail how he found the race.

My plan was to do an interview the next day, but I was absolutely shattered and could barely string a word together!

Will and I hope you really enjoy this episode and find it helpful in fulfilling your Ironman endeavours 🙂

If you have any questions send me an email to adelaide@lillywild.com or to Will: willushertraining@gmail.com 

Stay Wild!

Hello and welcome to The Wild Show! My name is Adelaide Goodeve and I am your host!

It’s really great to have you join me on this journey, as we explore how we can unleash our best self with ballsy folk who are kicking ass at life!

Now some of you astute listeners may have noticed that I have changed the name from The Lilly Wild Show to The Wild Show.

This is because Lilly Wild used to be my alter ego while I was really sick with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, she was the really energetic, adventurous side of me that was temporarily lost.

But now I am thriving and living an energetic and adventurous life so I feel it is time to shed being Lilly Wild and embrace being Wild!

I have also chosen to keep Wild, as it was Frank Wild the forgotten hero of Antarctic exploration that inspired me all of those years ago to live a life listening to those little wild voices whispering in my ear.

If you want to find out more about Frank Wild you can listen to his story and tales of old in Season 1 Episode 9 with Angie Butler, Wild’s autobiographer. I also expand on how he influenced me in Season 1 Episode 0.

So now you know why I changed the name, perhaps you are wondering why my podcast is in seasons?

My podcast producer Rob Lawrence, host of the Inspirational Creatives podcast and all round awesome guy, and I decided to launch my podcast in seasons, because it enables me to explore a theme in each season and to ensure that each season tops the last!

So in Season 1, we explored with my listeners and guests how we can live adventurously, without necessarily embarking on a death defying, world record breaking adventure!

We learnt that it’s all about bringing the adventure mindset into our everyday and that this involves three key ingredients

  1. Cultivating a resilient mindset
  2. Listening to your intuition
  3. Chunking your goals down into bite size pieces

If you want a quick overview then check out my Season 1 Round Up Episode, Episode 12, where I weave all of my top tips and advice from my 11 expert guests into just 46 minutes!

However, this season, Season 2, is a little different.

As a high performance coach, supporting individuals and teams in adventure, endurance sport and business, I have found that fear is the number one feeling and emotional state that often holds us back.

Now I don’t want us to become fearless, as that can lead us into trouble.

But wouldn’t it be nice if we could just fear a little less?

Imagine what you could do if you weren’t scared of going after your goals and dreams.

How would that feel? How would your life transform?

So in this Season we’re going to discover how kick ass and high performing folk see fear, what their fear feels like, when have they been scared, how did they overcome their fear and how did they deal with it.

So I decided it was appropriate to release Season 2: How To Fear Less on Britain’s scariest and spookiest day: Halloween.

One of the traditional stories says that our world and the spirit world becomes thin and porous, and so the spirits come out to play and make mischief, which is one of my favourite theories.

Some of you may be really into Halloween and get all dressed up, carve your scary pumpkins and go trick or treating.

While others of you may be the bah humbugs of Halloween and ignore this festive holiday.

And fear polarises people the same way as Halloween.

Some of you may embrace Halloween as you embrace fear, you may feel the fear, but grab the bull by the horns and just do the fear causing thing anyway, despite your fear.

Others of you may ignore Halloween as you ignore your fear, perhaps you experience fear and it immobilises you, you just bury that scary thing at the back of your mind and leave it on a back burner, hoping that the right time will come along eventually.

Well I say, enough is enough.

Let’s say BOO to our fears as we say BOO to the spirits and the ghouls and the monsters that reside in the depth of the spirit world.

Together with my expert guests lets learn how to deal with fear better, fear a little less, so we can live our life with more courage, bravery, daring, balconies and make it happen drive and kicks charisma.

So are you ready to fear a little less and achieve your goals and dreams?

Did I hear you say yes?

Awesome!!

So subscribe to the podcast, sign up to my mailing list to stay up to date with Season 2 and receive invitations to free live coaching, bonus materials, competitions and your free Ebook on how to live adventurously, as well as an opportunity to have a free fearing less strategy call with me!

You’ll also receive the popular Wild Wednesday: a weekly email that aims to bering you inspiration and motivation to get you over that dreaded hump day with style and flare and on the downhill to the weekend.

Any questions, suggestions or feedback for me on how to make the podcast even better, then send me an email to adelaide@lillywild.com

I strive to live courageously and bravely, to stare fear down and take action despite of it.

I’ll be the first to hold up my hand and say that I’m not perfect, sometimes fear, anxiety and the feeling of not belonging creates road blocks along my path.

Sometimes I can be staring at the edge of a chasm for a while, knowing I must to jump to get closer to achieving my goal, but something is holding me back.

In the past I might have ignored it, focused on something else that’s a more comfortable. But I would always come back to that chasm, staring across to the other side, imaging what my life would be like if I just took that leap.

It could have been fear of failure holding me back, or fear of disappointing my family, or because I felt I didn’t have the right skills, knowledge or ability, or something else.

But then one day several years ago, I started taking mini leaps, jumping onto stepping stones that would eventually lead me to my desired destination.

And I discovered that as I practiced stretching my comfort zone, becoming a little more daring, I started to fear less and began taking more giant leaps.

Now don’t get me wrong the giant leaps, are still a lot scarier! But I’m now excited to take them, who knows what exciting things may happen on the other side!!

But as I said, I’m not perfect and in some areas of my life I would like to fear a little less. And having spoken to my friends and clients, I think many of you would like to fear a little less too.

So this week I sat down with Jen Brown, a reformed lawyer who is now a running and triathlon coach and owner of Sparta Chicks: a global online community for brave female triathletes and trail runners, who are committed to living their dreams.

Jen found that as she coached more and more clients, she was helping them find the truth in the story they told themselves and challenge what they could and couldn’t do, what they should and shouldn’t do and what is and isn’t true.

And through her coaching Jen transforms women into Sparta Chicks! Brave and courageous women and men who dream big, take action and share how they move through their fear and self doubt.

In this powerful conversation, we delve into how you can cut through your bull sh*t that your inner critic tells you and re-write your stories into powerful, positive ones that will have you reaching for the stars!

Ultimately it’s about dreaming big and choosing how you chase them, not allowing fear, self-doubt or anxiety to make the decisions for you.

I absolutely love Jen. We have a podcast mastermind every month with Sarah Williams from Tough Girl Podcast and Margaret Schlachter from Dirt In Your Skirt podcast, where we share ideas, success, troubleshoot and laugh! Jen is a great mentor and role model and I’m aspiring to her level of service.

This conversation is simply awesome.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the listen.

Stay Wild!
