Today we’ll talk about overcoming adversity, pursuing passion, and achieving personal success, and my guest today, Kevin Rempel embodies all of that and more.

He's a man whose story is an embodiment of the phrase 'triumph over adversity'.

We dive into his journey, the highs and lows, the victories and setbacks, and the lessons he's learned along the way to become a paralympic champion.

Highlights From My Chat with Kevin Rempel

Are you facing some challenges at present?

Let’s see if we can help you today by speaking with my guest today, Kevin Rempel is a Canadian sledge hockey player, who has faced more than his fair share of challenges, including being told he may never walk again after a motocross accident as well as a family tragedy.

Despite this, he became a World Champion in 2013 and a Sochi Paralympic bronze medallist in 2014.

He’s also an author, motivational speaker, and hero to many.

He's turned his adversities into advantages, creating a legacy of resilience and determination.

  • After his motocross accident, Kevin faced many challenges. However, he’d seen the example he didn’t want to follow in his father, who was paralyzed several years previously and sadly took his own lie.
    • He also wanted to be like the heroes he looked up to and have a comeback story.
  • Sledge hockey is an adaptation of ice hockey that’s played sitting down.
    • Kevin says he’s been able to live out his motocross dreams through sledge hockey
  • It took motivation, discipline, and focusing on building the right habits to play at his level
    • Kevin focused on:
      • Being a hero for himself Boy And Girl Dressed As Superheroes On California Beach
      • Showing up for his team
      • Remembering that he and the team were there to show up for Canada
    • This helped him focus on the big goals, shaping his mindset one step and one day at a time, despite setbacks
  • Mindset is something that Kein believes can help overcome challenges.
  • He finds it important to be on stage as a speaker and author, finding meaning and purpose in helping others face their own challenges and develop a resilient mindset.
  • Asking for help is vital, and it takes three steps:
    • Admit
    • Ask
    • Accept
  • In terms of finding balance in your life, Kevin suggests reframing “balance” to “harmony”
    • Also explains that unless a person makes time, they won’t have time.
  • Kevin describes his coaching framework, The Hero Mindset Blueprint superhero-motivation-child-kid-inspire
  • He’s most proud of sharing his story and using it to help others with their own challenges.
