Let It In with Guy Lawrence

Nov 29, 2020

#147 This week, my lovely guest is Kim Morrison with a conversation which centres mostly around self-love. Kim is a five times best-selling international award winning author, a facilitator and Health and Lifestyle Educator who in 1983, set a world record as the youngest female to run 100miles in less than 24 hours. Kim has lived an amazing life and has had her fair share of trauma. But what I found fascinating and highly motivating, was how she overcame those difficulties and fostered self-love instead of the scars.

In this episode we cover her story including why she lives by the ethos that success is 90% mental and 10% physical. So, if you have ever struggled with pushing yourself to accomplish something, or if you ever were overcome by the fear of failure, then this episode can surely be helpful to you.

About Kim: Kim Morrison is an author, speaker, facilitator, and a health and lifestyle educator. In her own words, she helps people fall in love with themselves. Her journey and all she has accomplished to date has all stemmed from her unwavering self-belief and her deep understanding that you must also take care of yourself first and foremost. Kim set a world record as the youngest female to run 100miles in less than 24 hours in 1983. Cliff Young was her mentor throughout and still to this day lives by his ethos that success is 90% mental and 10% physical. She has used her running story as a direct metaphor for life – riding the highs, hitting the walls, pushing through the pain barriers, crossing the line and never, ever giving up!

Kim is well respected on the speaking circuit and has programs that focus on personality profiling and as well as leadership, teamwork and going the distance. Her personality profiling and teamwork programs provide incredible insight into how we all work with each other and provide real insights and strategies into working together better as a team.  These strategies are also key when facilitation strategic and business planning sessions.
