Mastering Adversity: The Journey of Writing My Book w/Lance W Essihos EP 388

On today’s episode, Lance talks about his new book launch, “Mastering Adversity - Unlocking The Warrior Within And Turn Your Biggest Struggles Into Your Greatest Gifts”. He shares powerful experiences that he had through the process of writing this, never believing that he would write a book and realizing all the self-belief that it takes. Everyone has a story to tell that is worth sharing, and through the ups and downs of life we build out our personal stories.

Lance has also prepared a quiz based on the themes of the book that will help you identify where you are showing up and help you in making better decisions. If you are doubting yourself about anything or going through adversity, this episode will help you see a different perspective.

Mastering Adversity releases on September 21. Stay tuned!

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.
