Episode 138: Caroline Burckle – How To Use Visualization Like An Olympian

What an honor it was for me to speak with an incredible leader and Olympic Bronze Medalist, Caroline Burckle. This conversation is packed with action oriented advice.  You can implement Caroline’s ideas immediately and see a positive impact in your life.

In her words: Winning a bronze medal in the 2008 Olympic Games in swimming was the most humbling and rewarding experience of my life. A lifelong road of pursuing a goal not only taught me the importance of clear communication, leadership, self-confidence, and goal-setting, but how to authentically follow a vision that was once merely a dream.

I thrive when I am developing individuals. My definition of success is to connect a person with their inner power and tap into their true potential. Whether I am rocking a one-on-one individual coaching session or speaking to a group of people, I am passionate in my quest to elevate people to view their lives through a spirited lens!

My journey (in a nutshell): Swam for The University of Florida & Team USA, 2008 Beijing Bronze Medalist in 4×200 Freestyle Relay , Swam Professionally for BlueSeventy & Team USA in Southern California, Associate of Arts Degree from Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising — Product Development, Worked for the ever-inspiring lululemon Athletica for ~ 3 years in both Beverly Hills, CA & Louisville, KY, Masters of Science in Sport Psychology & Motor Behavior from The University of Tennessee, Founder of Stilwellness – Peak Performance Coaching
