SST_60 How letting go is not completing going with the flow, understand the force within flow with your host Anna Willard

Play
Read more

When we live from a place of force, we are working against the flow of life.  Letting go is not completely in flow, there are times in life you need to hold on! 

Listen in as Anna Willard shares three things to be aware of when forcing things in life versus being in the flow of the rhythm of life.

Force:

  • Wanting the future to be in the current now 
  • Overworking wasting time and energy negating the joy within the process
  • Running back to the past for comfort of this idea of the known

Flow:

  • Still and calm body of water creating room for rest and reflection
  • Rapid force of a waterfall, a wave or the white waters from a river is work within the forceful flow
  • Gentle stream invited work and play to dance together creating a joyful experience 

Anna continues how important it is to honor our oceanic being by being in rhythm with these different waves of emotions with different types of exercise.  Listen to the very end as she has a special announcement for YOU!

Anna Willard, Professional Runner & Coach - What It Takes To Be Great At Multiple Things - 027

"Work smarter not harder."

Being Great At Multiple Things

Raised in rural Greenwood, Maine (population 802), where “people thought I was nuts running all the time,” Anna was state high school champion in cross country and track. She was also a shooting guard on the basketball team, good enough to be recruited by a couple of Division III colleges. Track was her first love, though (“Plus I’m 5-3, what am I going to do in basketball?”) so it was off to Brown University to run track. A 2006 Brown graduate with a degree in environmental studies, Anna ran her first steeplechase as a junior, filling in for an injured teammate on just two weeks of training. She broke the school record in her first race. By the time she was finished at Brown, Anna would hold 10 school records and was named 2006 All-Ivy First Team in athletics.

It was in her final outdoor season of eligibility, which she used at the University of Michigan while earn- ing a master’s degree in sports management, that Anna really came into her own. The new Wolver-ine broke the collegiate record in the steeplechase on her way to winning the 2007 NCAA title. Anna was named Big Ten Track Athlete of the Year after winning titles in the steeple, 1500m and 5000m and the top female performer at the Penn Relays for her contribution to NCAA records in the 4x800m and 4x1500m relays. Anna was also honored at Michigan’s 2006-2007 Female Athlete of the Year.

In 2008, Anna won the US Olympic Trials in a then-American Record time of 9:27.59. In 2009, Anna was undefeated over 800m and ended the year as the third fastest American ever over 1500m. By the end of the season, Anna had earned world rankings in three different events. 


In this episode, Nick talks with Anna about making their first world championship team, transitioning from athlete to coach and being great at multiple things.

Learn all about Anna and what's next for her.

168: Anna Willard Spark Your Youth

Read more

Anna Willard is an author, personal trainer and the oldest child from a family of five.

From her personal exercise journey streaming from numerous sports and multiple injuries, she discovered hope through movement. After many injuries and failed goals she experienced how movement is medicine. Exercise and movement continue to give her hope and allow her to dream again and again! Understanding this power she works with women and men strengthening them on their journey towards a living a life beyond their dreams.

Seeing first hand how hopes and dreams go hand in hand with physical fitness, she recently wrote her first book, Spark Your Youth.

I am so thankful to Anna for doing the interview with me, as she was facing her own personal crisis at the time we recorded.  It would have been easy and completely understandable for her to cancel the interview, but she felt it was important to honor HOPE, as she does in her book and to show up and share in order to instill HOPE in herself and others, even in the face of grief.

Listen in to hear Anna share: 

  • How grief compelled her to take action in her life
  • Why Hope, Dream, and Believe are her 3 words and why none of them can exist alone
  • How falling victim to comparison is damaging to your true gifts
  • How to get started if you’ve ever thought about writing a book
