136 REPLAY: Successfully Celebrating the Fine Art of Failing - Jamie McAnsh
This is a Harnessing Happiness replay. During January 2023, Sarah's taking a short break, but continues to upload some of her favourite past episodes. She'll be back with brand new content in February.
Harnessing Happiness with Sarah J Naylor is an upbeat, energetic, and inspiring podcast filled with joy and laughter, wisdom, philosophies, and positive psychology.
During this fab episode you will meet the incredibly inspiring and uplifting Jamie McAnsh, co-founder of See No Bounds, motivational speaker, TEDx speaker, entrepreneur role model, and adaptive athlete
As you will discover during this empowering and insightful episode Jamie woke up in 2014 paralysed from the waist down and started a journey of discovery learning the key skills of strength and resilience on his journey to recovery. Jamie and Charlott McAnsh, his wife, (you can listen to an earlier episode with Charlott here https://www.podbean.com/ew/pb-suew6-1250927) have a passion to see people succeed no matter what the circumstances.
Jamie opens by stating that he was the guy who left school with nothing and the information from his Maths teacher that the only numbers he would ever make up were those on the Benefits queue and his English teacher told him that he had no concept of the English language!
Jamie touches briefly on his time in the British Army as a Royal Engineer, but unlike the many stories you may have heard in the past doesn’t reference the camaraderie as the lessons that he learned. He talks about the strength that he found in their motto, Adapt & Overcome, which you will quickly realise has been the backbone to his success, in addition to his failed suicide attempt due to his ongoing battle with CRPS, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (read more about that here - https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/complex-regional-pain-syndrome/ )
Jamie talks about his battles and shares all that he has achieved since waking up in 2014 paralyzed from the waist down – his is quite a phenomenal story, and one that has seen him achieve so much.
During his journey to recovery, as you will find out as you listen to his powerful message, he was constantly told that he ‘can’t’ and he’s proved everyone wrong with the strength of his mind and his focus on the positive. He now tells people to listen to those who tell you that you can and not those who tell you that you can’t. But even more so to believe in yourself – you can!!
In fact, the opening statement on his own website pretty much sums it up: “Jamie McAnsh is an inspirational and motivational speaker with a story like no other. Waking up paralysed he has overcome every challenge put in front of him. Jamie is a sportsman, a role model an entrepreneur, a Disabled adventurer, and most of all a survivor. Life dealt Jamie a set of cards and he decided he was going to play poker. Looking at his challenges from outside the box Jamie has overcome adversity in an amazing style.”
You are going to LOVE this episode and understand that problems can be overcome and that you CAN achieve all that you want to achieve if you want it enough. And to top it off, Jamie is incredibly charismatic and wants the best for everyone too!
