On episode # 064 James Roberts, a podcast colleague, born with a congenital disability called femoral dysplasia and a floating hip of the left leg as well as scoliosis of the spine reveals, how growing up on a NATO base in S.H.A.P.E (Casteau), Belgium but now residing in North Wales, he could thrive as an para Olympic athlete despite his various disabilities.

He is an online training and nutrition coach by trade and was an elite Paralympic athlete for just over a decade. He ´s been lucky enough over those years to have represented Great Britain at countless World Championships and 2 Paralympics Games (Beijing 2008 and London 2012) to just name a few.

Facts / Strategy learnings:
  • Immerse to learn where you´re heading for
  • Be flexible and adaptable
  • He grew up with adapting and having the mentality of being flexible dealing with what is in front of him since childhood and this gives him extreme mental power
Tips & Tricks / Secrets:
  • His parents didn´t treat him or made him feel being different from any other child
  • That´s probably why the impact of his disability wasn´t something strange but quite normal for him
  • He utilized the strength he had (and despite the disability in the lower left leg) used his perceived weakness to his advantage
  • When you come across a wall, don´t shy away or find excuses, don´t procrastinate but look for solutions and ways to get over or pass it
  • avoiding or resisting things doesn´t help to get through, you need to face it
  • Tackle problems head-on and be assured that fear and failure are part of the success and normal
  • find new ways to approach challenges
  • we´re both on the empathic way to look at things and making things simple
  • if somebody does not understand something, ask questions to engage even better and be a good listener
  • looking and caring for yourself is essential
  • James did Karate, fitness, lots of sports to stay trained
  • Don´t ever punish yourself up, enjoy life and yourself
  • Don´t force yourself to anything, skip to the mindset of ‚I have to …‘
  • Follow what feels good and do more of that
  • Think outside the box
  • Our expectations influence the result as all is energy
  • Stop your negative mindset and worrying
Takeaways:
  • It´s easier to worry than not to worry as we are so used to it, we have to break free and restyle our life on our authentic terms to be free of that
  • The process to do the little things day in
  • and day out to achieve the end result
  • Honor the struggle
  • Collaboration and compassion and skipping the Ego aside leads to happiness
