Don’t Let Your Past Define Your Future w/Lance Essihos EP 371

In this episode, Lance talks about how it’s an exciting season for him as he is going through shifts in his personal life and in his business. He discusses what makes a past decision a good one versus a bad one. People tend to attach outcomes to the decisions that they make and therefore, qualify their decisions as good or bad based on the outcome. But Lance has a different take on this. He challenged this thought process and said what appears to be a failure might be good in the long term and what seems good now might not be the best in the long run. 

If a decision you made didn’t work out, maybe it’s holding you back from potentially something even greater. Therefore, it’s important to have a bigger vision and expand our imagination. He then mentioned that he does not sit around regretting his decisions as he did what was best at that moment and learned from those experiences.

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.
