What I Learned From Hosting the University of Adversity for 3 Years w/Lance W Essihos EP 350

It has been three years since the launch of the University of Adversity. What a journey it has been for me. I have so much gratitude for everyone who has listened to and supported the show along the way. Hundreds of incredible guests have come on and shared their stories.

When I started this in 2018, it was just a moment where I had to trust my intuition. I stepped out of limiting beliefs that made me believe that I don’t have a story worth sharing with the world. You are worthy, and each one of you has a message inside you that the world needs to hear.

The University of Adversity Summit was launched last year, featuring over 30 amazing speakers and in 2022, I launch my first book, Mastering Adversity. 3 years, 350 episodes later, all I can say is, we’re just getting started.

Much love,

Lance W Essihos

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.
