The Ultimate Bucket List – Noelle Pikus-Pace

Watch this motivational talk from Olympic silver medalist Noelle Pikus-Pace about how to be brave. (Hint: it’s not about being the best in the world at a specific talent.) You just need to be willing to push your fears aside and have a little bit of faith. Your journey in life can stop you in your tracks and take your breath away. When this happens, what can you do? How can you move forward? Noelle talks about her disappointments and heartache, then shares what she does to start new chapters in her life. Noelle created an ultimate bucket list that helps her look forward to the future. She offers advice on how to push your fears aside by trying new things. As a competitive person, Noelle understands how easy it is to compare yourself with the excellent efforts and talents of others. But she reminds you that God expects you to be yourself, to develop your talents, and not to compare them with others. Noelle says this life was never meant for you to compare yourself to others—it’s about connecting with others. Once you do that, your fears of being imperfect and your judgments of others or yourself will fade. She says if you want to move forward, you must look forward to a bright future.
