“I wanted to believe in myself again. I’ve spent so many years being groomed to be someone else. To act, dress, and speak a certain way. I wanted to know what it felt like to be free to be me and let nothing stop me from living my life. I wanted to be Unstoppable.” – Renei
I love to bring your Stories of Hope from amazing women and men we’ve met through Beautifully Flawed Retreats. Today I am changing things up a little and bringing you a Story of Hope from the Unstoppable Life Program.
From teenagers to parents of teenagers, it has been so wonderful to watch the content of my courses encourage and equip people in all stages of life. Today I want to introduce you to an “Unstoppable” (as I call my friends in the program) named Renei.
Renei is a 39 year old Colorado native currently working in the healthcare field. She joined the Unstoppable Life Program in March of 2020 when lockdowns first began, thinking that a coaching program would be a great way to spend quarantine time. God provided a way for her to join the program when she was selected as a recipient of the “Unstoppable Life giveaway” offered as a response to the difficulties people were facing in the Spring of 2020.
Renei recalls: “I wanted to believe in myself again. I’ve spent so many years being groomed to be someone else. To act, dress, and speak a certain way. I wanted to know what it felt like to be free to be me and let nothing stop me from living my life. I wanted to be Unstoppable.”
Since starting the Unstoppable Life Program and completing 7 of 12 courses, Renei says that her life has made a complete u-turn. “I used to have a very negative outlook on life and believed there are only certain opportunities out there for me. I told myself I could only be this or only do that. My mind has changed and I no longer struggle with the idea that it’s too late for me to live my dreams. I almost feel like Bethany on her surfboard. I ride the waves and come out a winner!”
My mind has changed and I no longer struggle with the idea that it’s too late for me to live my dreams.
Renei wants you to know that “it’s never too late to start a new journey [and] taking the courses will give you the momentum you need to move forward and conquer any doubt.”
So what changed for Renei?
She struggled with her identity for many years, and as a result, gave up on her dreams. “[I] did not believe I had the ability to overcome my obstacles.” But after taking the “Overcome Obstacles” and “Anchor You Identity” courses, Renei learned how to change her mindset to look at things differently and realized there are many ways to approach obstacles. “Sometimes you gotta change your view,” recounts Renei. “Once you do, your mindset will change. Tim Tebow’s conversation with Bethany inspired me and reminded me who tells me who I am. My identity is not what people think of me. My identity is in Jesus Christ.”
It was a simple, yet profound, mental shift which helped Renei go from hopeless to hopeful. And from hopeful to Unstoppable.
Check out this bonus video conversation where Renei shares more about how the Unstoppable Life courses inspired her to:
- Practice a Positive mindset daily
- Get free from Anxiety
- Tackle her Fears about the Future
- See the Joy in Blessing Others
- Gain Confidence
- Pay off 5 Debts in one month (per the Stewardship course)
We’ll leave you with a few guiding quotes/mantras that Renei picked up through the courses:
- “Get back on your board” -Bethany Hamilton
- “Any time you quit, you’ll never know what you’ll miss” –Tim Tebow
Like Renei, I’m cheering you all on to believe YOU CAN; and to use that belief to fuel your Unstoppable life!!!
