Overcoming Obstacles Through Resilience And Grit With Amberly Lago
I am so out of the moon about this interview. What happens a lot of times in life is that you run across a few people in your life that you say, “We’re going to be friends forever. We’re going to be instant friends. We have each other’s back.” ￼I used to think this didn’t happen a lot, but it seems like that’s happening more and more to me. Here’s what’s funny. It’s happening during COVID, which is even more hilarious. I don’t believe in anybody saying, “It’s COVID. I can’t create relationships and stuff.”
My dear friend, Amberly Lago is here with us. She’s the author of this fantastic book, True Grit and Grace: Turning Tragedy Into Triumph. I have been reading the book and making notes in the book and her story, but I’ve also had a wonderful pleasure in December of 2020 during COVID of having been part of a mastermind with her. We were in Vegas and we get to meet each other and spend more time with each other. She’s an absolute delight. Amberly, welcome to our show. We’re excited to have you.
Thank you. I was giggling because when you said, “You meet people who have your back,” I’m like, “Jen, you totally had my back,” because when I got to meet you in Vegas, I had been hit by a car and my back was killing me. Through the crosswalk on my little Razor scooter, I was taken out by a car and I was in so much pain. You’re like, “I didn’t want to admit or be a Debbie Downer.” Charles was like, “Are you hurting?” I’m like, “Yes.” You’re like, “I have one of these little icy hot things you can put on your back,” so you did have my back.
I forgot about that because I travel with everything that I possibly could need for my back issues all the time, so I was like, “I’ve got all this stuff for you.”Find the courage to move forward, and choose a life filled with laughter and love even when things don't go as planned. Click To Tweet
That helped. Thank you for having me here with your amazing audience. I’m a big fan of yours and your show, so I feel honored to be here.
The honor is completely mine. I want to give people a little more information about you. You are a health and wellness coach and a TEDx speaker. You helped me get on a TEDx myself, so I want to thank you for that. You’re a podcaster as well. I’ve been on your show, True Grit and Grace. Let me give everybody else a little bit more about you. You have been featured on NBC Today Show, The Doctors, Hallmark, Good Morning, LaLa Land, and a contributor to many magazines. I am excited for you to tell your story. I know your book is called True Grit and Grace but to me, it’s all resilience. Everything is resilient for you because that’s a word that comes out of your mouth quite frequently. You look at everything as being resilient. Your story is incredible and I have some thoughts about it, too. I would like for you to share not your scooter’s story because that’s a repeat.
I always love when you share, Jen, so I can’t wait to know what you have to say. You’re so good about helping people get clear on things, brainstorm and have big ideas. I love when we hang out because we’re always like, “Let’s do this together. Let’s do that.” Resilience is a big part of my vocabulary. As our friend, C-Roc, said to me, “That’s not a strong enough word. The definition means to bounce back.” I’m like, “I’m changing the definition.” I’m saying that resilience is about bouncing forward and reinventing yourself. It’s finding the courage to move forward and choosing a life filled with laughter and love, even when things don’t go as planned.
I talked about resilience a lot only because I have fallen down and I’ve been broken. I had felt broken mentally, spiritually and physically. I have lost it all. I had a lien on our house. I lost my career and my confidence, and to get back up, that’s resilience. I got back up 34 times because I had 34 surgeries to save my leg from amputation. I had had a lot going for me. I feel like I had a real good life. I worked hard. I was divorced twice and I finally met the man of my dreams. We had a baby together when we thought we weren’t going to be able to have a baby. My career was booming. Living in California, I was like, “I’m living the California dream finally. I’ve worked so hard. I’ve built my career. I have arrived.”
In an instant, everything changed when I got hit by an SUV. I was on my way home from work. I had run. I was an athlete and sponsored by Nike and doing infomercials and fitness videos. In a blink of an eye, everything changed when I got hit by an SUV on my motorcycle. At the time, laying in the street, I looked down once at my leg and I didn’t want to look again. It was broken into pieces and there was blood everywhere. I didn’t want to let go of it because I was afraid that my leg would fall off. I felt like my leggings and me holding onto my leg were the only thing keeping my leg together. I got rushed to the hospital.
Luckily, I didn’t know that my femoral artery was severed and that you can bleed out quickly. I was bleeding out. My organs were shutting down and they couldn’t control my pain. They put me in an induced coma. The first thing I learned when I woke up was they said, “We’re going to amputate your leg. You’ve got a 1% chance of saving it. There’s nothing we can do. It’s like a war wound. We’re going to have to take it.” I was like, “You said 1% chance, so we need to find a doctor that’s willing to take that chance with me because I want to take it.” That took an act of God and thousands of prayers.
I had 34 surgeries, years in and out of the hospital, but piece by piece they were able to put my leg back together. I had no idea how much it would change my life because I thought things would get easier, and then I was diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome as a result of the trauma to the leg. That is when the healing journey began. I had to dig deep to not just find resilience but find the grit. I then had to learn about giving myself the grace to rest and recover and have some self-love because I did not love myself. I hated the way I looked being deformed and scarred now.
In my book True Grit and Grace, it’s about the lessons that I have learned along the way, how powerful the human spirit is, and how there is so much power when you realize you have a choice. It’s not necessarily your circumstances, but how we view our circumstances and what we decided to do with what’s left after something has happened with the trauma or we’ve lost everything. It’s about being able to reinvent yourself at any age because I was 43 when I wrote my first book and I was 47 maybe when I did my first TED Talk, so it’s never too late. I don’t have a college education. If you’re smart enough, you’re capable, and you know your why, you can get through almost anyhow. I like to empower people to live their best life. Where I find my joy and my strength is when I see others turn in their can’ts into cans.
We see this time and time again. We see this with cancer patients looking for the positive to be able to be resilient and come back from cancer. I saw it with Hal Elrod who wrote The Miracle Morning. He‘s a friend of mine and he’d been on this show too. He was at death’s door and he kept positive affirmations and whatnot. The gold thread that I read through your entire book was that resilience and there is an opportunity and I’m not going to give up. The thing that resonated with me was that you had gone in and got that for yourself. You gave yourself self-love and all those pieces.
There was also the external piece of this. You are not going to leave your family. You are not going to leave them alone. You are not going to show them or demonstrate or be the example of giving up. I felt that at every pinnacle that was happening, as you wrote your diary and wrote things in it, it always turned to, “I’m going to show my daughter what can happen. I’m going to show that I can get through it. I’m going to not let anybody else down.” Talk to us a little bit about that because a lot of times, this can be a lonely process. You feel like you’re the only one going through and it’s self-centric. People tend to shut others out.
Pain has a way of doing that.
Tell us how you were able to go back and forth in it.
First of all, my family is the most important thing to me. Of course, my health. Without my health, I can’t enjoy my family. I survived this horrible accident, and then I could not do anything for the pain. I was having all kinds of treatments like spinal cord stimulator, ketamine infusions, spinal block, spinal radiofrequency, and Eastern-Western medicine. I was on 73 homeopathic pills and eleven different prescription medications. The pain was here to stay. I discovered alcohol because that numbed it out a little bit and it helped me numb out my feelings.
I discovered wine and I was like, “How come no one told me that this wine would help me?” It worked until it didn’t, and then I was like, “How did a good girl like me end up like this?” I started drinking every day. I’d survived this horrible accident and yet, I was slowly killing myself. Honestly, Jen, I was ready to go. I thought, “I can’t live the rest of my life like this. It’s too much pain. Nobody understands my pain. Nobody’s ever been through this.” If there’s somebody reading and you might be saying, “They wouldn’t understand.” Nobody’s been through whatever the traumatic experience is, whether it’s a divorce, you lost your business, you’re struggling with your finances, it’s a health issue, there is somebody out there who is struggling with a similar situation. The thing that helped me was when I finally took a good hard look at it because I was trying to numb out and pretend like nothing was wrong.
On the outside, everything looked normal, except for me being deformed from the waist down, but I was dying inside. It made me choke up a little bit when you said that you read in the book about how important my family was like. I remember thinking, “I want to set an example of a victor not a victim of resilience for my daughter,” because they see everything we do. My biggest inspiration is my girls. There were mornings when I thought, “How am I going to get out of bed? I’m hurting too bad.” All I would have to hear is my two-year-old’s voice say, “Mom,” and I’m like, “I will figure it out. I’m going to do this.” It’s interesting, she doesn’t even ever remember me either way, we were sitting down, getting back up together.
I was looking down at my leg and I said, “Ruby, you don’t even remember when my leg looked better, do you?” She goes, “Mom, your leg already does look better.” I was like, “You’re so sweet.” Out of the mouth of babes. It was that shift in perspective, “It already does look better. It looks good to me.” They’ve been my biggest inspiration to get me through dark times, and then by the grace of God. I’ve been sober now for a couple of years.
One of the things that you said and you’ll remember when I tell you this. I pick up on people’s phraseology and words and I know you do too because you’ve always said to me, “Can you repeat that?” One of the things you had said is, “Instead of going, ‘Good God,’ I was saying, ‘Thank God.’”
I didn’t realize that, but I wake up in the morning and how many mornings do we wake up and go, “Good God, another day.” Instead of, “Good morning, God.” It’s just shifting it that quick. I did it one time with my husband. I woke up because he’s snoring and I had a little more time to sleep. I was like, “Good God, he’s snoring,” and then I was like, “Thank God he’s snoring. He’s alive. He’s breathing. He’s here with me. I’m blessed.” It shifts everything.
It reminds me of 212 degrees. Do you know about the 212-degree video?It's never too late; you can reinvent yourself at any age! Click To Tweet
At 211 degrees, water is hot, but at 212, it boils. It’s that one degree that makes all the difference. I saw that throughout the book. I kept thinking, “This is 212 degrees.” It’s funny that you said that 1% and that’s what made me think of it. It’s that one degree that makes all the difference in the world. That is the difference between losing and winning or being first place and being last. It’s always that little oomph that you put into your daily life that brings joy to everything that you’re doing. That’s how I felt. I felt like I was on the journey with you. I felt that I was ready to turn the page and go, “Now what’s going to happen?” The flip side of it was, “Yup, that happened, but how is she going to respond? Let me find out how she responds.” That’s what I saw. That was fantastic and while I was reading it, I was complaining about my neck or something. I’m like, “Whatever, my neck’s fine.”
I want to talk to you about one of the things that you have shared with us and I’d like to share it with my audience too, which is how you can find your superpower through resilience. I know you do it through a system called PACER. I want the readers to have something they can take away and say, “How do I get myself some grit and give myself some grace?” I know that PACER is an acronym that you had set up. I think I know why, but I want you to tell me why because I’m thinking it goes way back to your days of being an athlete. Maybe it’s pacing yourself forward. Take the floor away and tell us about PACER.
It’s interesting because I do a support group for people with chronic pain on Fridays. One of the ladies got up there and said, “If one more doctor tells me to pace through my pain, I’m going to punch him.” I’m like, “I’ve never heard that.” I came up with PACER as a way to remind me to do the things that I need to do to get through the day stronger with more resilience because I love to be on the go. I want to do so much. I love to work. I love what I do, so it doesn’t feel like work. It feels like joy. I had a friend of mine say, “Amberly, how do you go to conferences and speak?” We were driving home from a conference. She was like, “How do you do so much when there are a lot of people that have chronic pain that don’t get out of bed? How do you do it? How do you get through the day?”
That night, I was at home for dinner. I was hurt and I had my leg up on the table. My husband said, “You need to pace yourself.” It did piss me off. I don’t know why, but I was like, “Don’t tell me to pace myself. I am pacing myself and these are all the things I’m doing.” I started writing down everything I did to be resilient to do so much throughout the day. I came up with PACER, which stands for Perspective, Acceptance, Community, Endurance and Rest. If you saw my desk, I love making lists. I love acronyms to remind me of things. I love mantras. When I’m not feeling good or I’m feeling anxious or I’m feeling rundown, I will go through this list and see and guaranteed, there are 1 or 2, hopefully not 3 things that I’ve left off of the thing.
The perspective part is the quickest and easiest way to shift your mindset and change the way you feel about your situation. We already talked about gratitude, and so much can change from one simple shift in perspective. It’s alchemy. It turns what you can’t do into what you can do and what you don’t have into what you do have. I practice shifting my perspective by counting my blessings, hunting for the good, and getting grateful every single day. I start my day with gratitude. I have a gratitude accountability partner. We text every morning. It’s important to practice. I’ll reach out and tell somebody, either with a phone call or a text, why I’m grateful for them, and to spread that gratitude and feeling. It’s not always easy to have.
I deal with this with me coaching other people. People are thinking, “You did it. You know how to do it because you’ve accomplished it.” We didn’t just wake up and accomplished it. We had ups and downs all around, setbacks and setups. We had all of those things. People measure a gap in the sense of what they don’t have yet. They measure the gap from where they’re at and where they want to be. They measure saying, “I don’t have.” They focus on that rather than saying, “If you look down, you’re 600-feet off the ground. Look how much you’ve accomplished.”
Comparison is a thief of joy. It’s a slippery slope when you start comparing. When I see someone that I’m like, “They got on that person’s podcast,” or “They’re speaking at that event,” or “They closed out their coaching,” or whatever, I turn that around and go, “Look at what they did. I can do that too. If they did it, I can do it.” I let it inspire me of what I can do because anything is possible when we look at it from that lens instead of, “They’re just lucky.” I’m glad you brought that up because it’s easy also on social media as you read somebody’s bio to go, “They’re a TEDx speaker. They wrote a book. They’re a bestselling author.” It took me two years to write my book and a year through the publishing process, and then the first year of the publishing process was crazy. That’s another story.
I want you to know, if you’re thinking about writing a book or being a speaker or having a new coaching program, that we all have times where we’re like, “It’s hard,” and we have to find the grit to get through. It’s being consistent and persistent every single day. For me, it’s creating those habits that we put in place where we have smart feet. In the morning, I do my prayer and I do my journal. That’s my only time of day where I have time for me where I set my intentions, and then I check in with my accountability partner. That’s a non-negotiable. I have to do that. I have to move my body because moving my body moves my mind. It moves your mindset, gives you confidence, and releases those endorphins that combat pain and make you feel good and unstoppable, and gives you energy. It’s those things that we do every day and being consistent. Social media is hard to look at.
I try to stay off as much as I can. I go in just to find out if someone wants to talk to me, but I don’t look at a lot of feeds. When my mom passed away four years ago, someone said to me 1.5 years later, “I didn’t know your mom passed away. I didn’t see it on Facebook.” I thought, “Why would I put it on Facebook?” I know people do. I’m not saying anything bad about that, but I chose not to do that. I don’t want to share that kind of thing. I do truth bombs every day. I have a whole box and there are 365 days of truth bombs. I randomly go and select it. Sometimes I look at it and I go, “I don’t know what it means. It’s going to mean something today.” Here we are, meaning something.
Let’s say that truth bomb.
This truth bomb is, “Be the person you want to fall in love with. That person that you want to fall in love with is someone who has gratitude. Not someone who’s a complainer or naysayer.” As we’re talking about persistence, I’m thinking about that same thing saying, “I want to fall in love with the person I want to be. I have to be that first.” That’s the first step. Let’s talk about acceptance.
It was hard for me to accept a lot of things, but because I did not want to accept, I kept trying hard to rebuild what was broken and bounce back to my old life, and it wasn’t working. It wasn’t until I was bleeding out. My stitches busted open from some surgery and my husband was like, “Get off the gym floor. You’re bleeding out across the gym floor.” I was like, “This is not serving anyone. I’m not serving my clients well. I’m not serving myself and I’m certainly not serving my family well. When I get home and I’m in so much pain, I can’t do anything.” Sometimes we have to accept where we are. It can be hard, but when we do, it allows us to open the door to many other possibilities. I love fitness. I still have a handful of clients that I work with that I’ve had for 15, 20 years.
When we accept where we are and start where we are, it allows us to use what we have and do what we can. When I finally accepted where I was, it was like, “What else could I do? How else could I be useful? How else could I be of service in a more impactful way?” That’s when I went back and got certified to be a life coach. I didn’t have to stand on my feet all day. I could sit more and still work with people. That’s when I decided to write a book, and then I started getting asked to speak. One door opened and then another one and then another one. I kept taking one step at a time, one day at a time. These promises came true of me having a full life again and connecting with people and building meaningful relationships.
The next part of PACER is the community. When you can be authentic, accept where you are, and take action, you connect with a community. When we have a community, it’s powerful. We’re stronger together in everything we do. I have a friend who did a book launch and she is a number one bestseller. She’s an amazing person. Her book is called ￼BE. She had a warrior tribe of women that were going live with her on Instagram, doing Clubhouse rooms with her, and doing Facebook Lives. When you have a group of people around you to be a cheerleader and do it together, then it’s more powerful.
Once I finally accepted things and admitted I have a problem and I started reaching out to a community, I realized, “I’m not alone in this. There are many other people that are struggling with the same situation that I’m going through.” Once you realize that, it gives you a sense of hope and relief like, “We can do this together.” It takes a lot of endurance to be an entrepreneur, and the next part of PACER is endurance. Gregory posted a story that somebody had asked Elon Musk on Clubhouse, “What are some words of wisdom you would give an entrepreneur to keep them motivated?” He said, “Don’t be an entrepreneur if you’re not motivated because you need to be motivated.”Family is the most important thing. Click To Tweet
It’s like, “Look in the mirror.” It’s not a weakness or anything, but you can’t be meek in your passion. You have to be strong in your passion. It takes a lot to stick your neck out and not rely on other people to sustain your livelihood.
You have to love what you do. For me, there has to be some love behind it because love is a force to be reckoned with. Jen, I’ve learned something from you when we were together. It was something I love that you do. In your interview on my podcast too. Go listen to her interview because you dropped such nuggets of wisdom. You’re intentional about where you spend your time and your boundaries. You’ve got real healthy boundaries. You’re passionate about what you do, but you make sure that you spend your family time too. I learned a lot from you. I sent you an email once and you’re like, “I’ll get to that on Monday morning.” I love that. That’s awesome.” For me, you can be spread thin when you’re an entrepreneur. There’s that FOMO of, “I don’t want to miss out on that. I better say yes.”
Especially with Clubhouse, there’s what I call circling the drain because everyone’s just on there to be on there. I’m just letting you know about how this works. I felt myself circling the drain and I finally said, “I’m turning off the notifications on Clubhouse because they bother me. I wish there was a better way than the way they have it.”
It creates anxiety.
I turned off all the notifications and I have to turn them back off every week. I don’t need the notifications because Clubhouse is a strategy for me, so I backed off and I said, “I don’t need to be on here all the time. Let me back up. Let me do what I do best, which is to plan and strategize in my practice.” I came up with a strategy. What did I want as a result? What was I going to be pitching or sharing and asking for help for? What groups was I willing to go in versus not? If someone pings me, I feel like FOMO. I don’t want to go into a group just because someone pinged me. It’s our natural way of doing things. I gave myself one Clubhouse a week that I go in and go, “I just want to see what’s going on,” but the rest of them are intentional. Broken out to the day and through everything. Going back to some acceptance and endurance, it’s accepting the fact that I don’t have to be everywhere.
Something that you said to me that is powerful is being in demand and not on demand. I had to turn my notifications off too because I was getting constantly pinged to go into rooms from some people I didn’t even know. I’m like, “Who’s pinging me to go into this room? I don’t even know who that is.” I had my first interview at 7:00 one morning. At 6:00, I got a ping to go into a room and I went in. It was a group of powerful women, some of my good friends, and they made me a moderator. I’m like, “This is awesome.” It’s like a dopamine hit. I was like, “I got to get off of here. I got to make breakfast for my daughter. I have to wake her up for school first. I’m going to get off Clubhouse.” I had to turn my notifications off because if you’ve got stuff to do and you’re getting notified, all of a sudden I’m like, “How did I just spend two hours on Clubhouse? That’s crazy.”
Not to talk all about Clubhouse, we love it and stuff but I also learned that I don’t have to stay all the way to the end. I can hop in and out. That was something that was important for me too. Let’s talk about R because it’s definitely where we’re heading with this. I need to pop in and out and get some rest.
That four-letter word. It’s hard for me. I’m still learning. As I was breaking this down and telling my husband about PACER that I created on a dinner napkin to remind myself to be resilient, I was like, “Perspective, acceptance, community, endurance, and the last part, rest.” He’s like, “You are so full of it. You don’t rest.” I was like, “I’m learning to.” I wanted to call it just PACE, but I’ve learned over and over the hard way to rest, recovery and rebooting yourself sometimes. You can’t be resilient without recovering and resting. If you want to be resilient, you can start by strategically stopping as you did with the Clubhouse. Stop the notifications.
I have my calendar. I’m old school. I put it on my computer. I still have things written out on my calendar and highlighted. I write times for me to eat and rest and I know that sounds crazy. I have a morning ritual and I have a nightly ritual. At 8:45 every night, my phone goes on Do Not Disturb. One night, my husband was out and he got home and he’s like, “You’ve got to stop that Do Not Disturb thing because there could be an emergency and I can’t get ahold of you.” I set an alarm to flash where it’s like, “Time to start winding down for bed. It’s your bedtime, so start drinking your tea, take a bath or a shower, or whatever your ritual is to start winding down.”
I’ve also had to learn how much time to put into Clubhouse. I’ve learned when is the best time for me to do my most important work? How many interviews can I do in a day? How many clients can I do in a day? The rest part is also finding ways to rest and recover when you’re in too much pain to fall asleep because that happens to me. I’m up at midnight with my leg outside the covers because it hurts so bad. I couldn’t even have the bedsheet on it. It took years to get into a schedule where I can sleep through the night. I know it’s hard, but it’s important for your resilience.
All of this has been fantastic. I love PACER. I’m looking down at it as I’m talking because I saved it. I wanted to make sure that I was looking at it on a daily basis. It’s almost like my daily ritual has turned into an acronym world because I do SAVERS and I do PACER. I do this other thing called SMILE. There are these acronyms that are leading me through my life and it’s cool. In fact, I’m probably going to do a book about it because there are many people that have many acronyms that have something to do about it. I would love to do a collaborative book with everyone’s acronyms. I have LAUNCH. I have that acronym that I use in my business for years. A whole acronym book that could be separated by health, wealth, business, family, and all these crazy acronyms. That would be the coolest book in the whole world.
You always have such great ideas.
We’ll see if we can get it in play. I have a meeting with Greg about it.
You need to talk to Greg about it. That man can get a book out in a week.
I already have that with him. Amberly, I’m blessed to have you in life and I know that we’ll have the opportunity to be touching each other again in another event some time out of COVID.
I feel blessed to have you in my life. I adore you. I’m grateful for you and I appreciate you having me on your show. Thank you.
What is the best way for someone to get in touch with you if they want to explore more opportunities with you?
If you like that acronym but you want a little guidebook, I created a little book for your readers. If you text the word GRIT to (818) 214-7378, you’ll get your downloadable goals, grit, and grace playbook. I say playbooks because I like to play. You can reach out to me. If you don’t want the playbook, just text me. That’s my text number. You can reach me at AmberlyLago.com. Come hang out with me on Instagram and see my crazy behind-the-scenes on @AmberlyLagoMotivation. You can check out Jen’s interview on my podcast, True Grit and Grace. I’m excited about that.
Amberly, it’s been a blessing to have you here. Thank you for sharing your story and I know that it has resonated with others. I know that someone will have an a-ha moment that we’ll never even know. We’ll never even know how it affected someone’s life, but I’m positive that someone has been affected by what they’ve learned from you, so thank you. As a reminder, everybody, you can get her book True Grit and Grace on Amazon. It’s a bestseller. Get it. It’s an easy read, but prepare yourself because you have to be in the right mindset. This is not a tactical book. This is a life story. Something important. You don’t want to skim through the pages. You want to take the time to read it and take it in and journal about it. Thank you for being with us. I sure appreciate it.
We will catch you next time on the show. If you are enjoying what we’re sharing with you, please feel free to write us a great review and give us a five-star rating. We will catch you next time.
