When COVID hit, did you feel like a freight train ran straight through your plans?? It sure felt this way for me. I'll never forget where I was that day. I had been working on this new boxing movie that was being filmed in Toronto and on March 13th, hours before they announced the lockdown, the production had told me they would extend my contract for the entire summer. Honestly, I would have never thought that coming back from lunch that day, I'd be jobless.
But if there's one thing boxing taught me, it's how to roll with the punches. When your in the ring if there's one thing you have no control over, it's your opponent. You can't control her every move. She is unpredictable. All you can do is stay focus and adapt.
Mandy Bujold is now a pro at rolling with the punches in and out of the ring. When covid destroyed her plans of going the Tokyo Olympics 2020, she was able to adapt quickly. To shift her thinking from negativity to solution oriented. What saved her in that moment? Her fighter's mindset.
I was so honoured to sit down with her and find out how she created this mindset and applied it into her life. Listen to the episode to find out how you can too.
"Don't allow the world limits to put you into a box, there’s a lot of stereotypes out there and perceptions that I don’t agree with and I don’t think we have to agree with." - Mandy
