Stories are the manifestation of experience. Experience defines our understanding of the world around us. And the beautiful collaboration of the two is how we can catalyze learning and growth in ourselves – and in others. Sammi Tucker’s life changed in 2010. A tragic accident brought her close to death, but the only death that day was that of her ego. She realized that the life she led was not synonymous to the life she intended to lead.
When recalling that fateful day, Sammi reflects, “It proved to me that a person’s beliefs and thoughts do become their reality. In the silence of that ditch, with my life behind me, I finally heard my own spirit’s voice clearly… The message was clear – I am beloved and everything I need for my work and fulfillment in life is already within me. I don’t need to ‘become’ anything to be happy!”
She knew then that her story was one to be shared. She was passionate about reaching people and overcoming the doubt that can so quickly shut down our dreams and ambitions. She realized that some people will reject you, but to emerge as your true self, you need to manage your ego and change your beliefs. She understands that her story can shed light on others and knows that “Right now, there are thousands of people that need you to speak your truth and share your story. They are experiencing something that you have already overcome. They feel alone and overwhelmed. You have wisdom and skills they desperately need. Or, maybe they want to do something that you have done but fear is stopping them. You can be that trail blazer for them.”
Sammi has overcome the obstacles this life has thrown at her. She is a skilled and artful motivational keynote speaker, specialist in resilience, and communications coach. She shares her mantras of turning your pain into purpose, your wounds into wisdom, and your trauma into triumph. She used these lessons to be the first woman in history to represent the USA in the 2016 Paralympic Games in the open compound archery division – with less than two years of shooting experience! The Paralympics was only her 11th competition as an archer.
She shares her successes in the games, “Being the first woman to represent USA as an open compound archer in the Paralympics is a hard-fought honor. The trail has been blazed. Excuses have been terminated. Ladies it’s time for you to believe in the impossible! Because it’s only impossible until someone does it.”
Sammi’s story and presence is sure to catalyze learning, growth, and betterment of yourself and the world around you. She’s an amazing influencer and a dynamic force to be reckoned with. She’s ready to help you obtain your wildest dreams and craft the life you’ve always dreamed of. All you have to do is pull from what’s already inside of you and overcome your fears!
