The sport of boxing is unlike any other. It's accessible to so many, going into it is a head game. It's independent, yet you still need your people. Jelena is fighting at The Edmonton Convention Centre June 22nd at 7:00 PM. So if you want to experience something electric, you will want to get to Ticketmaster before it sells out. When it comes down to ANYONE believing in themselves and being one percent better each day, waking up to be the best version of themselves that they can be that day, they can do it. The concept of simply striving for betterment, or being your best in that day despite the things that are out of our control is within reach for EVERYONE. This is something Jelena truly believes and does her best to empower others to believe as well. The truth is that the drive or desire or the want be better is associated with a feeling of discomfort. Nobody likes feeling uncomfortable but you don't get anywhere by staying complacent. So you just have to take a risk, be uncomfortable, then get good at it. This visit was definitely the highlight of my day, and I am a pretty positive dude, so you have to ask yourself, how good could this conversation have been to make it the highlight?!? It was a really great chat. You'll have to listen. Learn from the Champ. Jelena has a great deal of wisdom, and she's an incredibly compassionate human being. I consider myself lucky that I got to spend all that time "shooting the shit". I always appreciate and value the support of my listeners, it goes a long way in helping me with this passion project. If you happen to listen to this episode, please share it on social media, or send me a private message an let me know what you thought. Ratings and review are always welcome! This and all episodes will be available on all major podcast platforms as well as youtube, www.yegfitness.ca, and the link in my bio. I appreciate the support, and I hope you'll be able to make it to watch Jelena do what she does best on June 22nd. Let her know you have her back.

It’s just someone’s job.” Jelena Tweet “There is good that comes from the bad,” Jelena says. “How you carry yourself and what you do after the bad news and the bad events is how you will be perceived.” Jelena Tweet “It was a pivotal part in my life, never mind my career,” Jelena says about being cut from her Junior High basketball team. But when the Senior High basketball coach approached her, he offered words of wisdom that stuck with her throughout life.“He took me into his office and he said, ‘everything happens for a reason. When a door closes, another one will open and it’s what you do with that open door and that opportunity.’” And although she didn’t play on the Senior team much that year, she learned a lot and it changed who she was, and who she could have been.After blowing out her knee in the sport when she was just 18 years old, she worked hard through physio and then found boxing. The rest is history. The post 007 Champion Mindset with Jelena Mrdjenovich appeared first on The Shift Show.
