My name is samantha arsenault livingstone

I’m the mother of four girls, wife to my best friend, forever athlete, recovering perfectionist and survivor of so many things trying to pay forward all I’ve learned about achievement, success and rising from failure.

My fancier title is Olympic gold medalist, high-performance consultant, mental performance coach, speaker, mental health advocate and educator.

I know what it feels like to achieve and still feel the weight of not being good enough.

At 18 years old, I accomplished my childhood dream of becoming an the best in the world.

And, I was completely unprepared for what came next.

Less than two months after winning gold in the Sydney Olympics, I  found myself in the depths of the darkness that is depression, an eating disorder, suicidal ideation - battling through an injured shoulder that needed surgery.

Buried under the weight of this new title of Olympic Gold Medalist - angry that it hadn't protected me from pain - feeling like I was going to be found out; there was no way I was asking for help. 

Because, to my 19 year old self, asking for help meant I couldn't do it all on my own - proof that I was an imposter.

Fortunately, and amazingly - because of how hard I tried to hide it, my college coach saw my struggle and sent me to the office of Greg Harden. The man who saved my life

In our work together, we  unearthed beliefs that were blocking me from internalizing my successes and from feeling joy. He mirrored back the light inside of me, unfiltered and free from distortion. He challenged me + pushed me + pissed me off.

And together, we worked through to the other side. I finished my career happier and healthier than I had ever been - and faster too, all the while  generating greater awareness of who I was beyond my achievements + who I wanted to become. Work I couldn't have done alone.

It truly takes a village.

This I AM challenge is an adapted version of one of the homework assignments he assigned to me.

At 19 years old, in my climb out of the darkness - I declared on this homework assignment given to me by my mentor, G:

“I will be one who is so comfortable with themselves that they can reach out and sincerely help others who struggle with the same problems as I do right now.”

I AM HER. ✨
