181. Dr. Kaveh Kavoosi, MD - Let’s Do Our Part & Stop the Coronavirus

Amidst the news & chaos, our way of living has changed over the past few weeks. In today's informational episode, Lance has the pleasure of speaking with Emergency Room Doctor & fellow Fit for Service brother, Kaveh Kavoosi.  Dr. Kavoosi is courageously working on the front lines in a hospital located in Toronto, Canada.  Dr. Kavoosi shares guidelines that we all should be following to help prevent the spread & eventual stop of COVID-19. Dr. Kavoosi stresses the importance of stepping into solitude, into your own being & learning to sit with the stillness that comes with meditation.  Practicing mindfulness is important, especially in a time like this.  Kaveh is the first to be featured from the Aubrey Marcus Fit for Service Mastermind that some of you may know Lance joined at the start of the year. Be sure to stay to the end as the episode takes a bit of a twist.

Stay healthy everyone! 

In times like these, we all need to band together.  

Please remember that you’re not in this alone.  

Reach out if you need to talk. 

All of us here at the University of Adversity are here to help!


Dr. Kaveh Kavoosi answers with, “We’re in this together.  Remember to hold space for others.”

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.
