Amy Purdy: How to Be Your Best Self

Update: 2019-01-0922


Whatever it is that you want to do in this new year- declare it.

Tell everyone.

One of the scariest things you can do is to admit your goals. What if you fail?

But saying your intentions out loud allows the universe and those around you to make them a reality.

Holding yourself accountable to what you really want won’t be easy, but it will force you to dig deep.

No one knows this better than my guest on today’s special episode of The School of Greatness. I’m sharing a speech from this year’s Summit of Greatness with an inspirational athlete and author: Amy Purdy.

Amy Purdy is a para-snowboarder, motivational speaker, clothing designer and New York Times bestselling author. She is a 2014 Paralympic bronze medalist, 2018 Paralympics silver medalist, and co-founder of Adaptive Action Sports. In 2013, She was named one of the top 15 most marketable para-athletes in the world by the International Olympic Committee.

Amy has competed on CBS’s The Amazing Race and ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, eventually becoming the show’s runner-up.

Amy used a tragedy that took her feet to push her to the next level. She teaches us to use obstacles not as a reason stop but as a springboard to new ideas.
