Owning Your Choices & Working Your Mental & Emotional Muscles: Sara Westbrook – NSM Podcast, Ep. 14

No Schedule Man Podcast Cover ImageIn this episode, I had the chance to sit down for a chat with Sara Westbrook, who I first met back around 2009 when we both performed at a live music event here in town. I’d heard of her before but had never taken the opportunity to speak with her in depth about what she was doing. I’m glad the chance to do that here, because I believe that what Sara is doing is really important stuff.

Sara Westbrook PhotoSara is a motivational speaker, author & singer who specializes in resilience, confidence and respect. She is the creator of UPower, helping people to see that they are in control of their choices – how they choose to act, react and what they choose to believe.

Sara has shared her UPower presentations with over 200,000 students and parents, using her own personal stories and songs to give them the skills necessary to take back their own UPower and create resilience, confidence and respect.

Sara also has created the the UPower journal, not only for young people to express their thoughts and feelings, but also to build their confidence and resilience through the stories, exercises, and quotes found inside.

A few key things that stood out from my time with Sara:

  1. Owning your choices. No matter what may be going on in the world, you have the ability – and responsibility – to choose what you want to think, feel, say and do. It’s your choice, how you wish to act and react to other people and situations.
  2. Work your mental and emotional muscles as you would any other part of your body. Sara tells a great story about this in our conversation.
  3. The power of sharing. Sara tells some stories about how powerful it was when other people shared very personal things while trying to help her – being real – why she makes sure to do that in her presentations.

  • Hi Kevin!
    Great read! (and listen 🙂 )
    Until now, I don’t think I had heard of Sara Westbrook, but I am glad I landed on your page!
    She sounds like such a great influence on anyone who would have a conversation with her, or to anyone who is connected with any of her work.
    Great work! 🙂 I will keep this page book marked for future readings!
    Thanks!

    Hi Kevin
    Very informative post and podcast. I have never heard of Sara Westbrook before but I am glad I know of her now. I really like a lot of what she has to say, and her words are something people should live by. The point about owning your choices is very true. You can choose how you want to react to a situation, which means you can decide if you want a positive or negative outcome. If people don’t realize this then they may always find situations negative and fail to try to make things better. Good information, thanks!
