How To Develop A Champion Mindset After 40 | Ava Diamond | Episode TML136
Developing a champion mindset at any age is difficult especially if you were not taught that from an early age.
There are so many stigmas and anxieties that gets in the way the older you become.
Not only are you dealing with the aging process, but also the fear of the outside noises – family, friends and foes.
You are limited in other ways as well especially if you are still parenting younger children. Your financial, physical, emotional and mental state is a huge factor.
These are some of the excuses that a number of people give for not pursuing a champion mindset. This was not the case with our guest.
In this episode, our guest – Ada Diamond – shares how she was able to compete as a professional body builder at the age of 47 years old. Most of what she shares happen within the stage of life we refer to as midlife.
She is on a quest to inspire others to live out their passion and not being afraid to take the plunge.
You will discover what it was that led her to “just start” and how you too can do the same.
