At age 38, Amberly’s life was turned upside down when she was hit by an SUV while riding her motorcycle. Recovering from 34 surgeries to save her leg from amputation, she was diagnosed with an incurable chronic pain disease. As a result, she lost her fitness business and had zero self-confidence.
Hopeless after trying any and everything for her chronic pain, she spiraled into a depression.
She wanted to give up.
Then one night while she was lying in her hospital bed, her life flashed before her eyes…
She remembered something her grandfather had said, “You have a shovel in your hand. You can either lean on it and pray for a hole or start digging.”
Right then and there, she realized she had a choice. She could either give up and give into the pain or start digging and fight to create something positive out of her circumstances.

Amberly Lago had a beautiful life and a booming career. She was at the top of her game and life was good!
Then, one bright, sunny California day as Amberly headed home from work on her Harley, her live was forever changed.
She was hit by an SUV.
This near fatal accident took Amberly on a dark path until she found her Superpower of Resilience.
Today, Amberly shares with others how they too can tap into their Superpower of Resilience by having a positive mindset.
When we face challenging times, toxic thoughts can drag us down into a mindset that is miserable.
Our mindset and how we see ourselves, drives every aspect of our lives—how we love, how we parent, how we live, and how we lead. The quality of our life is determined by the quality of our mindset.
For years, Amberly has been studying, teaching, and practicing a positive, resilient mindset. It’s the one and ONLY thing that actually worked for her to overcome her pain and circumstances.
She learned that you could move from grieving to bliss, self-pity to self-compassion, fighting pain to finding purpose and giving up to giving it some grit using a method she created called PACER.
The PACER method provides a roadmap to transcend negative thinking, renew your mind, supercharge your motivation, and transform your life. It strengthens your resilience so you can rise up despite any adversity and persevere through any of life’s challenges.
In this presentation, you’ll learn the PACER method of Perspective, Acceptance, Community, Endurance and Rest and how to put it into action to unlock your Superpower of Resilience.
Perspective: You have the power AND choice to transform your life with a simple shift in your perspective. It’s not necessarily what is happening in our world but how we view it. The quickest way to shift your perspective is to count your blessings, get grateful, focus on the positive, or hunt for the good. Gratitude is alchemy. It turns what we don’t have into what we DO have, and what we can’t do into what we CAN do.
Acceptance: True acceptance is the first step to freedom and becoming the best version of yourself. It’s recognizing that you are ready to make changes necessary to have the best life possible and thrive. It is the beginning of starting where you are, using what you, and doing what you can.
Community: You are never alone. Together we are unstoppable. We are hardwired for connection. We need it to survive and thrive. Now more than ever, safe spaces, and building community online can be as important as coming together in person. When we share our story build meaningful, deep connections and strengthen our community.
Endurance: Passion + Perseverance = GRIT and that is exactly what you need to get through the most challenging times and go after your big goals. When we focus on our “WHY” and doing things one day at a time and one step at a time we build our stamina. It takes a willingness to get up every day and jump out of your comfort zone and practice to develop good habits.
Rest: Rest means recovery, refuel, recharge, and reset. It’s giving yourself GRACE and lots of it. It’s loving yourself each day and listening to your body and your heart. It’s being open-minded to different methods of rest when you are challenged with a never-ending to-do list or are in too much pain to fall asleep.
If you want a proven method for living with chronic pain and choosing to thrive despite it, this is the talk for you. In her moving and thought-provoking keynote, Amberly teaches listeners how to turn pain to purpose and harness hope with her signature PACER Method.
