About this Episode

You’re about to meet one of the most inspiring and driven people on the planet.

Her name is Bethany Hamilton, and I discovered Bethany during family movie night last year when the kids wanted to watch a movie called, Unstoppable.

At the age of 13, Bethany was one of the top female professional surfers in the world.

Back in 2003 on Halloween morning, Bethany went for a morning surf session with her best friend Alana like they always did.

But this time was different. As you can imagine, there are only two things a strong surfer might fear… Shallow coral reefs, and sharks.

Well that morning, fate stepped in as a 14 foot tiger shark attacked Bethany, severing her left arm in the process.

She obviously survived, but now she had a choice to make…

As Tony Robbins likes to say, you can let things happen to you in life, or you can let them happen for you.

Thankfully, Bethany chose to accept, to adapt, and to fight for what she wanted as she always had.

One year later, she took home first place at her next professional event and by doing so, she became a role model to millions around the world.

She has shared her story on Oprah, Ellen, and the Tonight show, and today she’s generously offered her time to share it with you.

And I’d highly recommend that you gather the family together and watch her incredibly inspiring move, Unstoppable, on Netflix, iTunes, and Amazon.

With all of the negativity surrounding us today online and offline, this is one movie that will make an unforgettable impact on you and your kids.

Today, Bethany is a wife and mother of two, and she and her husband have dedicated their lives to mentoring and inspiring as many people as they can through an awesome online program you can learn more about at BethanyHamilton.com.

Now on a personal note, I wanted to share some thoughts about this interview that I think about often…

Bethany has reached a point in her life where she doesn’t want to talk about the shark attack any more, and that was the case during this interview as well.

On one hand, I completely understand where she’s coming from. That event took place 17 years ago, and it has to be incredibly difficult to have a moment in time, define the rest of your life.

You’re going to reach a point when it’s time to move on.

There are chapters in my life that are over and that I don’t want to discuss either.

But at the same time, I’m torn because this part of her life’s story is the catalyst for everything good that’s taken place since then.

It’s given her the opportunity to make a positive impact on millions of young adults and athletes and around the world, and this part of her story is the reason why she’s been on Oprah, and Ellen, and all of the biggest platforms in the world.

This is obviously an incredibly personal decision that is largely driven by your personal priorities in life.

But if you want to build a business, that process starts with getting attention, and I think it’s a mistake to throw away the story that’s literally grabbed the attention of the world for nearly two decades.

Either way, Bethany is a rock star in life and one of the rare role models in the world today who you can safely point your children towards.

So watch Unstoppable tonight, and please help me welcome Bethany Hamilton.

About the Instructor

Bethany Hamilton Surfer, Speaker, philanthropist
Bethany Hamilton has become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of determination, faith, and hope. At the age of 13, Bethany lost her left arm to a 14-foot tiger shark, which seemed to end her career as a rising surf star. One month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water and within two years had won her first national title. In 2007, she realized her dream of surfing professionally and since then, her story has been told in a New York Times best-selling autobiography and in the 2011 film, Soul Surfer. Bethany is involved in numerous charitable efforts, including her own foundation, Friends of Bethany, which reaches out to amputees and youth, encouraging and offering hope to overcome through Jesus Christ. Using her platform as a professional athlete to promote living a fit and healthy lifestyle, she authored the book Body and Soul in 2014. Bethany’s latest project, Unstoppable, a surf documentary which showcases her as one of the best women surfers in the world, released theatrically in the USA on July 12, 2019, accompanied by a photo book and a children’s book. Passionate about helping young women be unstoppable in life and faith, Bethany has launched a new website and online course for sharing content and facilitating a connection. Her greatest joy is being a wife and mother, and she continues to touch and inspire lives globally as a professional surfer and motivational speaker.
