46 | Vanessa Low | Para Olympic Gold Medal Mindset | The Amber Hawken Podcast

What would you do if you lost both of your legs?

When Vanessa lost both of her legs in a tragic train accident at the age of 15, she got told she would never be able to walk again.

She went on to become a paralympic gold medallist and world record holder in the long jump.

We discuss:

  • grieving the entire life she envisioned she’d have
  • using the unknown to your advantage
  •  standing up against those ‘wiser’ and who ‘knew more’, and winning
  • the difference between determination and self-punishment
  • moving beyond perceived present limitations and carving a new path
  • how physical excellence will be limited by your level of mental strength
  • understanding deeply that the power of choice is in your hands alone
  • what life looks like now; love, purpose, passion, goals and training
  • the single most potent advice she has to offer from this wild and wonderful journey
