About "Be your best"...
Katrina Radke appeared to be on top of the world. At 14, she was the youngest member of the U.S. National Swim Team, and later she was a member of the 1988 U.S. Olympic team, placing fifth in the 200 meter butterfly at the Seoul Olympic Games. She won four gold medals internationally, held American records, U.S Open records, Australian Open records, and Italian Open records. She served as co-captain of the United States National Swimming Team and held Top 10 World Rankings for seven straight years.
But what nobody knew was that she had been battling immune system issues since the age of 15, ultimately finding herself essentially bedridden, relegated to using handicapped parking, and being reduced to being classified as “mentally disabled” while in college at Cal Berkeley. After years of mystery, she was finally diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS). Once she was able to put a name and “face” to her disability, she called upon her athlete’s determination to fight her way back, ultimately even to swim again at the Olympic Trials. In Be Your Best Without the Stress, Katrina uses her inspirational story to guide others through the minefield of health and wellness issues.
From farm town girl to Olympic Swimmer, to bedridden and beyond, therapist Katrina Radke uses her inspirational story, professional experiences, and powerful yet simple tools to help you find what drives you to be your best, while feeling deeply satisfied in all areas of your life. This life-changing book helps you awaken to lost aspects of yourself, become more aware of your impact and importance, and commit to decisive actions that will help you live your best life, one designed and fulfilled by you.
Katrina provides specific tools to help guide you to success and fulfillment by helping you to: get clear on what motivates you (purpose and vision) so you can reach your dreams, manage obstacles (loss, injury, illness, distractions, stressors), take care of yourself on all levels (health physically, emotionally, spiritually, and in relationships), and fulfill your potential while feeling complete and deeply satisfied within.
