Hi, I'm Charlene

Let’s talk about how to boost your performance and well-being.

Feeling spiritually disconnected and struggling to cultivate inner resilience amidst life’s stressors is a common challenge for many high achievers. Whether it’s coping with the loss of a loved one, grappling with burnout, or striving to push through personal and professional boundaries, these experiences can often leave you feeling depleted and unmotivated. In this episode, we explore strategies to boost both personal and professional endurance. Learn how to develop inner strength, embrace your primal instincts, and foster a deep sense of connection and purpose.

Rebecca Rusch, a professional athlete who self-identifies as the “Queen of Perseverance”, is a seven-time world champion in multiple sport disciplines. She has carved out a storied career that hasn’t just redefined endurance, but has established her as a legend in the athletic world. Rebecca’s unrelenting pursuit of adventure and exploration is as profound as her best-selling book, “Rusch to Glory.” A motivational keynote speaker and founder of the Be Good Foundation, her legacy is amplified by her world-famous 1,200-mile ride along the Ho Chi Minh Trail, which deepened her spiritual connection to her family and roots. Evolving from athlete to mentor and entrepreneur, she continues to inspire by developing the “athlete operating system,” guiding individuals from all walks of life to adopt an athlete’s mindset for success.

Variety is the spice of life, but it is actually true for your brain and your motivation of doing different things.
