Continuous Effort: Motivational Speaker Yvonne Camus On Long-Term Success
At the Learning Solutions conference, Camus recounted her experience training for and completing in the Eco-Challenge (the world’s premier expedition racing championship). The grueling competition taught her strategies for overcoming life pressures and stress. In the talk, she related these lessons to her audience to show them how to realize the inherent potential in themselves, their co-workers, and in their organization as a whole. Drawing from her four pillars of success—nutrition, exercise, relaxation, and mindset—Camus delivered an uplifting and ambitious talk that highlighted the road to high performance living. While she admits there are many stressors that weigh down on us and make it difficult to keep striving for greatness—she says that those who don't succumb to them are the ones who see the greatest gains in life.
