TMHS 236: UNDEFEATED: Strengthen Your Body, Mind, And Confidence - With Laila Ali
6 days ago
I love the quote from Marianne Williamson that says, “With confidence, you can reach truly amazing heights; without confidence, even the simplest accomplishments are beyond your grasp.” How much does confidence really play into our lives? Well, if we take a step back we can see that confidence plays a major role in ALL of the decisions we make. Humans don’t act without an underlying sense of confidence. We have confidence in simple things like our ability to walk out our front door and successfully make it to our job. And we have confidence in bigger things like telling someone you love them for the first time, choosing the right college to attend, or going after the dream career we really want. How much confidence we carry will decide how strongly we approach all these things, or even if we decide do them at all! Here’s the thing… confidence is a learned behavior. Sure, there are outliers that have a genetically higher tolerance for risk, but for the most part, the most confidence people on the planet built that confidence by doing the work. Now, the question is, what does that work actually entail? How can we all build our confidence so that we are showing up better in our work, in our relationships, and in our health practices? To answer that, I decided to bring on one of the most confident people I know. She’s an undefeated world champion, she’s been successful in everything from boxing, to dancing, to hosting network television, to being a mom (which can be the most demanding thing on confidence of all!). She’s here today on The Model Health Show to share her story, and to share how she was able to build her confidence despite meeting adversity around many corners. Just click play, listen in, and enjoy this conversation with the one and only Laila Ali. In this episode you'll discover: How Laila first became interested in boxing (and it’s not what you think!). Why doing work that you love doesn’t really feel like work. The little known outside the ring battles that challenged Laila during her boxing career. Why it can be difficult to uncover what you’re passionate about when you enter a new chapter of your life. What inspired Laila to focus on creating a new career in health & wellness. Why confidence is so important, and how to build it! What Laila’s #1 fear is (yep, it’s the fear that a champion would have!). How valuable fa

Ha! Now that's IMMERSION!
The first time I heard Shawn's voice was after listening to him on the Art of Charm. I am one of the many women who listen to their show for sound advice, and a better understanding of men's thoughts. Shawn, at that time was speaking on sleep. I followed each of his tips from that podcast that very night. To the point where I drove to the mall after work in Rush Hour Traffic in California to get black-out curtains... Immersion. That's all I could say.
My sleep since listening to that podcast has been great. But when I fixed one thing that was out of balance in my life, I started to realize there were other places I want to go deeper in to as well. I wanted to be healthy. But more than anything I wanted to be "whole"istically healthy -- Mind, Body, Soul...and yes, SLEEP!
I have listened to most of the episodes, and I enjoy them all. I can listen to as many as two to three a day while working away. This allows my mind to process something beautiful and fulfilling while working at a job that I enjoy instead of the same ten songs on the radio. I get to learn and empower myself and earn a dollar in my 24 hours.
I enjoyed getting the information on juice detoxing. I have been wanting to carry it out the right way and ensure that I understood how it was effecting my body, the pros and cons, and the real benefits. I knew I would lose weight, which is my goal, but I didn't want that to be the purpose of this. I wanted to flush my body of toxins and ultimately coming to a place of clarity both mentally and emotionally. For five days, I listened my way through podcasts galore. And on the fifth day, I soaked in the tub, meditating, and began journaling about a book idea I am interested in pursuing after my thesis. It's funny how immersing yourself into information that is so good for you can make you feel amazing and open your senses to the truth. Wish me luck!
P.S. My goal is to one day bring that book to your show. I would love to know to what you, Jade, and your listeners think of the piece.
