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.
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 those in need and to instill a sense of security for them - has 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 work, softball or dancing as she would only end up on the floor and in more pain. Rebecca lost her identity and was consumed with emotional, physical, financial and spiritual pain. She had to start over again and had no idea how. She was only twenty-eight years old.
From 2001 Bec educated herself and now owns a Diploma and a Degree. This helped shape her ideas and beliefs on what should be and what should not when healing a broken human spirit. Rebecca believed that there was more to being labeled, medicated and boxed up! Bec believed the 'human spirit' was left out of the professional evaluation and so with her 'left of centre' thinking - Bec created her own program, based on her self-efficacy - mental toughness, exercise, and good positive verbal persuasion.
In 2014, Rebecca created The Phoenix Rising Foundation Ltd after a desperate mother called for help. Searching for a place for her son to go to - Bec was shocked that there was nothing and it was in this moment where Bec believed that she could build the unthinkable - a place for broken souls to heal. Bec's idea - buying properties off struggling farmers to build the eco-retreats
around Australia for children and - homeless veterans. Her advantage - living on the land, and understanding exactly how this could play out. And so now - Bec had a plan which would guide broken souls to build a greater sense from therapy, mental toughness, exercise, eating well, play and education! Bec saw it as a win-win realistic goal!
In 2017 Bec was on a health and wellness path whilst still building the foundation. Walking 64 kilometers in February and up to 13 kilometers by the 12th March. It was important for the lower lumber as she now has nerve damage - right leg. On the 13th of March, Bec was woken up early with her spine on fire. Straight to the Doctors for heavier medication and advice to travel to Sydney and the Gold Coast for MRI's. The MRI showed severe damage to her neck which left Bec bedridden only to rest it after walking. However, from March 2019, the pain increased and only limited hours to work on the foundation and her Hay House Writers Workshop Course.
Rebecca was shattered. All her work was stalled and she felt trapped again.
Currently - Bec is preparing to launch her '2BuckTuesday' National Campaign at the Bathurst 1000 in the Touring Car Masters.
Bec created TeamPhoenix811 to create awareness, chatter, and coin through car racing. A Torana A9X is being built by Gary O'Brien who built and - is currently running 2 times Bathurst1000 Winner, John Bowe. Gary O'Brien is a Director and Department Head of the mechanic & driving school for teens at every retreat.
Bec knows the challenges and her team is qualified and ready to go. Bec has created all websites to be simple and easy to use and she was not comfortable wasting thousands of dollars for a website to please others. This is the main website and 2BuckTuesday also has it's own due to the power of the campaign and making it worldwide. Events will start once the CoronaVirus has lifted and it is safe to come out and play!
If you value our children and veterans who are lost, disconnected and needing care - create your pledging plan today and you will be creating history and be one of our PHOENIX CHANGE AGENTS! You will also be helping our struggling farmers!
