In this episode of the Powerful Stories podcast, I chat to the fabulous and fearless Stephanie Rice. You probably know her as the former Olympic swimmer, but she has undergone something of an evolution in recent years, and there’s much more to this powerful woman. Stephanie is a conduit for sharing her story and showing others that challenges can become possibilities, and she is brilliant at leveraging her huge social media following and the community she has built there to help others.
However, as Stephanie will tell you, she has a love/hate relationship with social media. One of the major values she leads her life by is authenticity, and in this we are very aligned. I personally believe that human connection is the best connection, and Stephanie and I discuss how she prioritises business partnerships that align with her truth and also value human connection.
We discuss self-love, and the process of learning to surrender your desires to the universe, and being open to receiving what comes your way. Stephanie shares how many people assume she is a naturally happy person, but in fact, she says that she has worked hard to become the happy, positive person she is today. Steph also opens up about her daily practices, including cultivating gratitude and appreciation every single day, and the mantra she recites every morning upon waking.
Stephanie Rice truly is a woman who is grounded in her authenticity, and who is doing a stellar job of building longevity in business by virtue of knowing and being herself. I took many learnings away from this conversation, and I hope that you do too.
