In this episode…
How many things in life have defeated you? Looking back, how many of those defeats were because of a breakdown in your will… you simply didn’t want it badly enough?
Those are some of the most difficult questions to answer, both because we don’t naturally tend toward knowing ourselves that well, and because we are not adequately trained to make those assessments about ourselves and our lives from an early age.
Today’s conversation with Dr. Jeff Spencer may help you make up for some lost ground in those areas. Dr. Spencer is a performance coach for people ranging from elite athletes to high profile business figures like Sir Richard Branson. His insights are not the common “trust the universe” mantra, but something more practical and real.
The Champion’s Blueprint, step by step
On this episode of Inspired Insider, Dr. Spencer shares the basic steps of his “Champion’s Blueprint” methodology, unpacking a wealth of knowledge about how our minds and wills operate, why our cultures typical “gap approach” to achievement and performance is proven to be antithetical to high levels of achievement, and how you can begin training your mind to propel you to the levels of accomplishment you desire.
If you’re looking for mindset tips to increase performance, Dr. Spencer is the guy to point you in the right direction.
In his work with athletes and business leaders Dr. Spencer has had the opportunity to not only mentor people to greater levels of success, but to continue honing his performance theories and his understanding of human achievement. The lessons he’s learned in the trenches of his own athletic career (he was an Olympian back in the day), business consulting, and performance coaching continues to serve himself and others in a variety of powerful ways.
So grab a cup of coffee and a notepad and get ready to learn – about yourself, your failures, your successes, and what’s possible when you develop a champion’s mindset.
Our massive thanks goes out to Dr. Jeff Spencer for giving us so much time and such powerful information.

INspired INsider - Inspirational Business Interviews with Successful Entrepreneurs and Founders with Dr. Jeremy Weisz
December 9, 2023
We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience,
regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level.
These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible
to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific
disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML,
adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email
Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with
screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive
a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements,
alongside console screenshots of code examples:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website.
In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels;
descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups),
and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag
for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology.
To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on
as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
