    the talk itself is very inspiring and the message is gold ! especially to this generation , but on the other hand , its easy to be confident when you look like her , but it would've been more convincing if she looked 3/10 not 10/10 .

    Funny thing about people is that they will always find something to laugh about someone that is different than them. Does it have any sense to care about other peoples opinion when you know that you will never be enough for someone who cares so much about others that he forgot about his flaws? People, dont care about others... The world is full of insecure people who are scared to do anything because of our fckd up society. Judgmental. Selfish. Make yourself your own priority. Its the only way to achieve happiness. You have unimaginable power and ideas. Share them with others.

    It's interesting because I've followed her podcast for a while before I saw this talk so I already know a lot of her background and the context she speaks from. Reading some of the comments though makes me realize that when that context is missing, how much can you glean about a person from a speech of less than 20 minutes? Everything she talked about is part of a very positive and much bigger message and some of the comments that didn't necessarily agree with what she said went on to explain their views which in actuality are the exact same things she talks about, but perhaps not expressed in the same language with the same metaphors.
    Now, she focused a lot of her metaphors and life story on her time in the fitness industry so I can see why some of the more negative comments focused on personal appearance and judgments on body weight, but the point she is making is that in the end her original motivation to be fit has been replaced by self-acceptance and that working in the industry has allowed her to adopt a mindset of personal growth that involves turning your personal struggles into opportunities and lessons.

    YOU are an inspiration....don't ever stop doing what you're doing!!! I love your point about NOT waiting for that cover to start being happy and inspiring!!!! Soooo many people think "I won't be happy until I get those 6 pack abs, or lose 10 lbs, or make $100,000". They all make the tragic mistake of tying their happiness to a result....F$%& THAT!!!! NOW is the time to be happy!!!! NOW is the perfect time to start inspiring!!!!

    I'm glad she has done well with her beauty. However, she is not teaching people how to build muscles. She is teaching how to slim down and just have a pretty face. I recommend you guys search for videos about power lifting and fast twitch muscle fibers.

    This talk is representing the american clichee at its most extreme, always pushing, competing wanting to be the best, the strongest, the prettiest, soooo tiring, boring and unreal.

    • Robert van den Eijk

      Her talk was kind of inspiring. The message I got was: "Don't wait for other peoples approval to start living" and "Use the tougher things in live to become stronger and better". But most people fall in the middle of the bell curve and won't be exceptionally special in any kind of way (except to their mom). It's good to improve yourself. But not all people have her stamina to really stand out. Most people will steer towards a mental breakdown with such focus for success. Not to forget, how many woman did she crush during the fitness competitions? Let them speak too.

    A great talk...
    some quick points made.
    1. Ridiculous funny face on both sides (BEST to free the audience )
    2. Resistance + Time under tension = Strength.
    3. Heavier the resistance the stronger the muscle you can build
    4. Keep the under muscle UNDER tension until failure
    5. IF you don't USE it you lose it
    6. As you get stronger ' You must take on more challenging forms of resistance'
    7. Seek the uncomfortable situation -> Grow
    8. Time, Patience, and Consistent INCREASE RESISTANCE = progress
    9. A career they can't ignore
    10. Nothing on wheel (up to you)... Use the time....
    11. It's not happening to you, It's HAPPENING FOR YOU....
    Resistance Training.

    What's true for the muscles is the opposite for life. Always always choose The Path Of Least Resistance regardless how society teaches us to struggle. Don't do it unless u want a life full of struggle. She probably means excitement... The cave that excites u the most, holds the treasure u seek. Not fear, not doubt. Doubs means no. Just go with the current, hence the saying; go with the flow!!! Follow that Silent Calling from within. Surrender to it, it'll lead you gently towards the life u meant to live. She looks terrific though, also a great talent to speak.. Very beautiful. X
