Your 40’s can be the most transformative or the most challenging decade of your life.  With perimenopause looming, and gravity having its way with you, the 40’s can be ridden with anxiety and stress.  OR this decade can be an opportunity to finally achieve the goals you’ve always strived for but no longer fear taking a risk.  

Katia Stern challenged herself to make her 40’s the best decade yet.  At the age of 42, she entered a fitness bikini competition and at 46, she entered the Mrs. Canada competition.

She was met with a lot of anxiety and doubt in herself but she pushed forward anyway.  Despite being scared and anxious, she pushed forward and challenged herself in a way she couldn’t even believe.  

Small decisions lead to big actions.  

Despite wondering “Who are you at 40 to be in a fitness competition?” Or  “ Who are you at almost 50 to be in a beauty pageant?”, Katia was determined to move forward.  

Katia’s mentors, Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield , and Lisa Nichols from the movie “The Secret” have taught her the realistic way to visualize and manifest the life of her dreams. 

In this interview Katia teaches us how to become a WOW woman.  A woman that feels good in her body, that loves and takes care of her self, and a woman that feels confident in whatever age or shape she’s in.

Katia’s solution to overcoming her anxiety is to take action.  Take action despite being terrified.  Take action even if you’re shaking with fear.  Take action even if you are not perfect.  

Katia shares her experience with public speaking for the first time and says “Nobody knows how anxious I was.  Nobody knew how scared I felt but I went and did a great job and now…no more anxiety”.  

 Katia also addresses how anxiety limited the choices in her life in the past and how now she uses regrets to push her past her anxieties and fears.  

Katia invested in her personal growth by hiring coaches to help her achieve her goals and overcome her anxiety.  Katia realized that not investing in herself was more costly than spending money on quality coaches that could guide her in the direction of her dreams.
