Scarlett O'Connor; A Bodybuilder, Worldwide Champion Athlete, Gold Medal Winner of Ms Atlas, and NLP Master Practitioner.

Today’s Episode Summary:

We hear so many stories of people who overcome the challenges of their life and achieve something bigger but there are few stories that completely leave us baffled and we think that how someone can possibly achieve such a massive success on the face of catastrophes. My today’s guest, Scarlett O'Connor, is a true epitome of courage, resilience, and strength. She has been through a lot in her life but she proved that it doesn’t matter from where you belong and it doesn’t matter what circumstances life puts you in; you can still achieve what you want. Today Scarlett is sharing with us her emotional life story so that we could reap benefits from it.

Scarlett was born in a family having a narcissistic mother and a mentally ill and alcoholic father and went through many traumatic events as a kid. At the age of 12, her mother kicked her out of the house and she grew up in a Care System. She was carrying a lot of anger, sadness, and frustration that led her toward drugs. At the age of 16, she became pregnant and hustled a lot to provide for her kid as a single mother. Later on in life, she was physically abused in Spain by a police officer and was almost died but she kept silent over it until recently. She lost her father along the way and all of this led her toward severe depression. Not only that, in 2017, she went through a huge car accident and ended up in coma.

Throughout her life, Scarlett was living in flight or fight mode. She always used to be in survival mode but after recovering from coma, she started her self transformational journey. She had nothing but willingness to be something more. She started working on her inner-self, joined NLP, and also started training and bodybuilding. In 2019, she participated in a bodybuilding competition and won the prestigious ‘Ms Atlas’ award.

Scarlett is an extremely brave lady who fought with many challenging and bizarre events in her life. She stood up every time and challenged the challenges of her life. After the huge success of ‘Ms Atlas’, now Scarlett is on a mission to help people break through the limitation of their past. She is helping people to create the life they desire and improve their mental health and relationships.
