After covering inspirational famous people such as Oprah and Russell Brand, we decided to find motivation in lesser-known heroes. This is why, this weekend, we’re hoping you
Martyna Wojciechowska: From Dakar Rally Driver to Social Game Changer.
She had a passion for cars and motorcycles, which is why, when she was 17, she got her rally licence. She began her career when she was 19 as a model for a Polish broadcaster. Few years later she started presenting the most popular motor show on TV in Poland. She took part in the Dakar rally and she finished it as the first woman to do so from Eastern Europe. Martyna started travelling the world in 2007 and, a few years later, she climbed The 7 Summits – 7 tallest mountains of the world – as the third Polish woman to achieve that.
She is also the author of a tv documentary: Woman at the end of the world – a show about women from all over the world and their struggles.
She started a Unaweza foundation. Their mission is to give women wings through giving them equal chances economically, legally and socially. She has 2M followers on IG, 2M on Facebook.
And we could keep going like that for a while to list everything she achieved.
Martyna Wojciechowska – Journalist, editor in chief of National Geographic Poland, filmmaker, writer, activist, mother. We admire her for the strength, charisma, for not letting anyone categorise her and put her in any particular drawer. We admire her for being herself and paving the way for her causes.
She recently said:
And we, at MY NU WAYS! Programs second that!
CHANGE & TRANSFORMATION are at the core of everything we do at MY NU WAYS! PROGRAMS. Why? Because Change can be a scary thing. It is our uncertainty and lack of control that makes it scary. That is why it is not easy to make a decision, or open yourself to change, let alone follow through and keep your motivation going. There are ups and downs. One day you feel great, another day you have your inner chicken sabotaging you, and telling you that you are not going to make it, you are too weak. Fear is driving your thoughts. You are painting disastrous pictures, catastrophizing, telling yourself everything will go wrong, everyone will now know that you are hopeless and incapable.
But: You are going to make it. It won’t be easy but you will.
We won’t always be able to plan everything. We may think that we have taken into account absolutely all aspects of a situation in order to make a decision, but then something unpredictable happens and our plan goes in the bin. What is next? Very often we are frustrated and disappointed as our plan, that we spent so much time on, didn’t work out. But that’s fine – we won’t always be able to foresee everything. If that was the case, life would be too easy, and probably too boring. And it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan. It only means to expect the unexpected and deal with that. Adjust your plan, or come up with a new one – maybe a shorter term plan this time?
Not doing anything is also a decision! You have a choice: either you spend your energy on pushing back an opportunity, and have to deal with guilt about pushing it back
…you spend your energy on seizing an opportunity and working towards that.
It does not need to be a revolutionary life event. Sometimes, a slow but steady pace towards your goal is all you need. Open yourself to it. Let yourself do it. And then taking a decision will come naturally. One step at a time…
And this is why we created MY NU WAYS! Programs – we want you to be clear about what your goal is, which is key to take a decision and to make a Change.
8 out of 10 people who opt for coaching, consulting and enabling, succeed in getting where they want to get.
Our proven concept will support you in your transformation journey, create a space for you to make a decision – YOUR OWN DECISION, and help you embark on your journey!
