Rebecca Jaeger Has Lost Count Of The Number Of Times She Has Failed.
Reflecting On The Moments Of Failure, She Now Smiles,
Because Her Interpretation Of 'Failure' Is Completely
Different To What It Used To Be.
Today, she embraces 'every failed attempt' with her goals, because it has led her to where she is now and that is what she is grateful for. Her 'failures' became her compass and they shaped her emotionally, mentally and spiritually. She believes she would not be the person she is today without them.
Former three-time Australian Softball Champion and five-time NRL Cheerleader, Rebecca Jaeger is a qualified Sports & Performance Coach specialising in Mental Toughness. Bec is also creating and planning the unthinkable - the building of free retreats Australia-wide for abused, neglected, homeless and suicidal children and teens. Her vision is also to add a Veteran Village to each one so that our homeless broken Aussie Vets and current Servicemen and Servicewomen in need - have a place to go to - a safe place where they can work towards self-renewal.
Rebecca grew up in Toongabbie, Parramatta, a satellite city in western Sydney Australia, and has only one thing on her mind - the constant suffering of Australians and the political ignorance surrounding it. Her daily concerns for the welfare of struggling Aussies have motivated her to create change in their world.
Rebecca's fight for survival started in the late nineties - after making attempts on her own life. Crippled with lower back pain and unable to work - Rebecca's world crumbled when she was told by her Doctor that her world as she knew it - was now over. No more softball or dancing as she would only end up on the floor and in more pain. Rebecca lost her identity and was so consumed with emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual pain - the thought of starting over just seemed so useless and - she had no idea how.
Over the next ten years - Rebecca's back injury deteriorated to the point where she could not sit. So since 2008 - her bed was her chair and her Mac was her office. Bec did not allow her back pain to own her - however, her life stumbled again in 2017 March when she woke up in pain and could not feel her arms and her hands had pins and needles. Bec was told by her surgeon Dr. Kam that her neck was a mess and so for the next 4 years she was basically bedridden to try and stay out of pain. She also needed to raise the money for the operation. That took years and she researched for cheaper surgeons and she found one on the Gold Coast - only 4 hours away.
Excited that she was getting help - Bec's father drove her to the Gold Coast in November 2019 after visiting I-Med in Armidale for a current MRI Cervical (neck) scan the month before. Bec knew that she had to have the operation and was blindsided by the surgeon on the Gold Coast. The Dr could not operate because there was nothing wrong with her neck.
Shattered and confused - Bec waited another year to save her money and then off she drove - heavily dosed up on opioids. Her first appointment was with the MRI department at Wahroonga Sans Hospital where the radiologist stunned her with two MRI discs. I-Med Australia in Armidale - had given her someone else's disc the previous year (October 2019) and this is why the surgeon on the Gold Coast could not operate. Rebecca just cried, she was mortified, disgusted and the penny dropped. I-Med was the reason why she lost another year. It was another year of pain - emotional, physical, mental pain with no work. The question which often surfaced was - who's disc did she have then? Where was her disc? These questions were left unanswered and how many breaches of privacy had occurred?
Finally, after years of neck pain - Bec had two neck discs replaced on the 7th December after Dr. Kam saw the correct MRI and three weeks later - she was on the operating table. Thirty-six days later - Dr. Kam operated on her lower spine as well. The lower back was also a mess - this is why she could not sit. He created a new back with a 2 level lower back reconstruction - January 11th, 2021. Dr. Kam had given Bec - life again!
Now writing twenty-six books for six to twelve-year-olds. The books will guide children, parents, grandparents, carers, and nannies to adopt the coping mechanisms to build their Emotional Intelligence for Mental Toughness. Allowing this to ignite the conversations and chatter so they are all on the same page and learning the language - it has to be done! Too many children are falling through the cracks and parents do not know how to correct it. Too many suicides and not enough support for parents - now here is the solution, learning the new behaviour. Learning about how to react, when to react, or - do not react at all.
When the children are ready to enroll for High School - the 'ANYONE LISTENING' program will follow with a phone app, a workbook journal, weekend workshops plus - a private place for teens to ask Bec questions online.
Rebecca is fiercely motivated on delivering programs to protect the teens who are so vulnerable. With a new back - she feels like she can do anything and is currently seeking the perfect investor who believes that behaviour can change and teens can create new lanes to explore. They must understand that it is all about creating life - not whining about what they do not have.
Bec has also prepared her eight workshops which are unique and fun. Head over to the workshops tab which has been heavily discounted. Bec is not charging absurd amounts. Everyone deserves to learn the new Mental Toughness movement and if she overcharges - she would be doing exactly what she loathed when she needed help 25 years ago. Coaching & therapy is too expensive for lower socio-economic families.
Rebecca coaches Mental Toughness to rebuild the human spirit - as she understands what you need to create it! Bec lives on the other side of fear - and if you CHOOSE to join her, welcome to FREEDOM!
'WICCAN' - is her stronger sense of self and her postcode is country. Bec values the Traditional Owners and all that is Mother Earth! Grounding is important and feeling free is her way of life - her connectedness to the truth!
Single - because apparently, she wears bad perfume but - Bec believes it is because she is building her empire!
Loves Elvis, listening to Jewel and Kasey Chambers - Bec's not afraid to sing the blues!
Come and join for the unique memories you will create with her - she will not disappoint!
