Unleash Potential: David Arsenault's Blueprint from Athlete to Change-maker

Watch the Full Show below

Hey Bapl Nation,

Just had an eye-opening #LiveInTheLab chat with David Arsenault, a former athlete turned visionary on a mission to empower children through movement.

We dove deep into topics that challenged conventional wisdom.

The takeaways:

🟢 Redefining Balance

“Balance is an illusion,” says David.

I agree.

If you’ve been following the show over the past couple of weeks, you’ll know that I’ve been hammering on the concept of life tasks—the things you simply have to do for daily success.

When you think about it, there is no ‘balance’.

Life is a series of responsibilities, and you simply have to make time for them all—or suffer the consequences.

According to David, ‘balance’ is not some fixed thing to strive for.

It’s dynamic and requires a constant coordination of responsibilities and goals.

🟢 Be Vulnerable, but Never Compromise Yourself

Here at the Lab, we’re big fans of being vulnerable.

David agrees.

But he has also learned that vulnerability can get you down when you over-extend yourself.

So, remember:

There’s a fine line between being vulnerable and being a people-pleaser who risks burnout.

Prioritize your own well-being and know your own boundaries.

🟢 Authenticity and Integrity

When you’re not authentic in your endeavors, you’re just using people for your own benefit without thinking about how your actions might impact them, for better or worse.

Don’t be that person.

Whatever you do, be clear on your goals and purpose. And always strive to help others.

Finally, we can’t talk about authenticity without talking about integrity.

Integrity is about genuine self-presentation.

Who you are in private is who you should be presenting when interacting with other people. That’s when you’ll find your tribe and support network.

PS: David has pledged to say NO to saying “sorry” too much for the rest or November. It’s a Canadian thing… 🤣 Check out this post to learn more about NO Month:
