Finding Your SOUL/Life Balance w/Sam Kabert EP 364

📚AVAILABLE NOW! Pre-sale for Lance’s new book Mastering Adversity: https://geni.us/MasteringAdversity 

Sam Kabert played the game, mastered it, and cracked the code to what he was chasing: his dream life, filled with material successes and millions of dollars. He was named on Silicon Valley’s 40 Under 40 at just thirty-one years old. 

In the middle of all that, Sam discovered the plant medicine ayahuasca, an experience that invigorated a new passion and kindled a new purpose in his life. His mission now is to fully embody the practice of SOUL/Life Balance.

In this episode, Lance and Sam talk about the journey to self-discovery, slowing down in this fast-paced world, looking inward, and discovering what it means to find balance in one’s life. Sam shares his experience of spiritual awakening and how that was a pivot point in his personal and professional life. 

🥇“What advice do you have for someone who is struggling with adversity right now”🥇

Sam says, “We have been conditioned to seek to fix what isn’t “right” in addition to chasing something to accomplish and our gaze is outwardly focused. What we need instead is to look within, get our inner world in order, and practice self-love.”

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.
