Ep 7: Self-Acceptance, Challenging Yourself and Holistic Success with Joy McAdams

Joy McAdams joins me today, sharing not just her story, but her life-changing approach to adversity and how this approach will make you stand out. As a mom of 5, marketing and business strategist and consultant, drug pricer, creator, connector, and influencer, Joy knows what it is like to have a life so full it looks like it might burst at the seam. A full life does not have to equal overwhelm, especially when you focus on holistic success.

Holistic Success is what it sounds like: success in all facets of life. At its core, it starts with self-acceptance. Simply put, embracing what you were handed, and proactively determining what you are going to do with it. All circumstances are there for your growth. You can’t help the cards dealt you – but you are the only one who can determine what you are going to do with them.

Pursuing strength, embracing the struggle, and being authentically you is what sets you apart. Identify and grow in areas of strength. It is just as important to identify and improve areas of weakness. Be openminded. Learn to invite feedback and be disciplined to grow through challenges.

One of the best tools at your fingertips is investing in your physical health. Not only does it keep you healthy and fit, but it is also a metaphor for life. Understanding how to start, how to keep moving, even through pain, and how to discipline yourself mentally are skills you learn through physical activity that will set you apart in your day to day life – regardless of the setting. When you can push yourself into the uncomfortable, and step out beyond where everyone else is content to be – you will stand out.

In parting, Joy has a challenge for you: If you want to be a step beyond average and be a high performer, determine one high performing action you can take today, write it down and do it. Do this every day and, over time, each high performing action will grow you into the high performing individual you were born to be.

 Rise. Shine. Impact. Make the world better than you found it.
