ASPIRE: The Desire to Change w/Lance W Essihos EP 391

In today’s episode, Lance covers ' Aspire’, the third ‘A’, in his book “Mastering Adversity - Unlocking The Warrior Within And Turn Your Biggest Struggles Into Your Greatest Gifts” on how to move through adversity in your life. He gave an overview of the two A’s that he spoke about in the last two episodes and made the connection with ASPIRE in this episode. We often find ourselves falling into the habits we want to break repeatedly although we know we need to change. Lance speaks about why that happens and what ways we can really change.

Lance Essihos

As an experienced veteran with adversity, Lance has faced some of life's most difficult challenges. Grinding his way through the hockey ranks to traveling the world as a bartender. Through his personal battle with drugs and alcohol for well over a decade, the tragic loss of his brother to suicide followed by the great loss of his father to cancer only a year later, Lance realized he had hit rock bottom. In the darkest of days, he made a promise to himself that he would create a new life, one that would make an impact and inspire the masses, leaving the world in a better place than he found it. Lance has made it his mission to facilitate the message of positive change through adversity and encourage people to see the light through the darkness of life's worst moments.
