Judge Yourself Based On Your Best – Not Someone Elses’s [Podcast]

Are you aware you’re constantly being judged? I bet you are. Are you letting it affect the way you live your life? I really hope not.

Today, it’s so much easier to feel the burden of judgment. With social media, our lives are always in the spotlight. There are so many people who will hate on us, and the more successful we are the more haters there usually are.

You can’t listen to them. You just need to follow your heart and brush off their comments.

Focus in on listening to those that you really do care about, not some stranger that you’ve never heard of.

I have a special guest who knows more about this than most people: Brooke Ence.

Brooke is a fitness and CrossFit icon. She also appeared in Wonder Woman as an Amazonian warrior and she’s just getting started.

Unfortunately, she’s always received a lot of criticism in her life. Her love of working out has meant she doesn’t have a traditional female body. She can come off as intimidating to people, and there’s always been a lot of backlash on social media because of it.

Last year she suffered a spinal injury that nearly took her life’s passion away from her. She decided not to let it ruin everything she has built.

Through pacing herself she’s learned to get back into the competition world and has been making a massive recovery in such a short amount of time.

Sadly, this pacing of herself has lead to even more people criticizing her. They’ve been trying to make her feel like she’s burnt out or past per prime – but I get the feeling she’s going to come back even stronger and better in the future.

Instead of listening to the naysayers she’s learned to focus her attention to people that truly know her, support her, and gauge her success on their reaction.

On this episode of The School of Greatness, Brooke really opens up about her injury and the struggles she’s gone through as a woman focusing on her passion as opposed to society’s standards.

She really is an inspiration to all people.
