ASTOUND YOURSELF!

Sally Saxon

Is there anything in your life that seems beyond your ability to change, overcome, or to do? This weekly show offers inspiring interviews with people sharing extraordinary stories or lessons about overcoming adversity, remarkable personal transformation, amazing athletic or other accomplishments, or exciting miracles that God is doing today. They will inspire and empower you to break through your own perceived limitations to experience greater joy, fulfillment, confidence and impact, regardless of your age or circumstances. The theme of this podcast was inspired by words attributed to Thomas Edison: “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.” Your host, Sally Saxon, is a retired attorney, a daring Baby Boomer, and an author, speaker and coach. She went from not being able to walk more than 100 yards at a time (due to incapacitating pain) to finishing more than 100 half marathons and 10 full marathons within 6 years’ time – all while in her 60’s! Whether a challenge you want to conquer is one you chose to take on or an unwelcome one that just showed up in your life, let the adventure of conquering your mountains begin! read less
