In this episode Coach Mo sits down with a close friend and new OCR athlete J.D. Harvey. J.D. was born with a condition called Phocomelia, where his arms did not develop, yet he didn’t let this condition slow him down. He overcame life challenges, bullying, self-doubt, and negative self-talk, and used these challenges, as he says, “to grow into who I’m supposed to be”.
J.D. took this confidence to Laughlin, Nevada where he competed in the first annual Spartan Para-elite Team Championship taking home second place! In our conversation we discuss:
- How he used life’s challenges to his advantage
- How he used mindset, self-talk, & meditation to affirm and solidify his desired outcome
- How he approached the Spartan race and overcame mental & physical challenges
- and a lot more! J.D. offers gold nugget after gold nugget of inspiration and motivation for anyone, athlete or not, to learn from and apply to your life
