202 – Turning Tragedy into Triumph with Amberly Lago

You know the feeling when your nervous system kicks into overdrive. Maybe you freeze in place or your heart starts racing, your body pumping with adrenaline. This automatic response often feels like it overtakes us. But what if you could control and balance your nervous system instead of it controlling you? 

I am so excited about today’s episode both because I’m interviewing someone I deeply admire, the inspiring Amberly Lago, and because this show couldn’t have come at a more divine time with all that’s going on in the world today.


Amberly is someone I would call a “resiliency expert,” and she has a lot to teach us about finding inner strength during challenging times. Amberly has been through so much in her life, but instead of letting it overcome her, she worked through fear and pain and shows us how we can find light even in dark times. She now helps millions of others discover how to persevere and live life to the fullest regardless of circumstances through her writing, speaking, podcasts and workshops.


In this episode, Amberly shares her powerful story of healing from a motorcycle accident and her journey through chronic pain, depression and learning to reclaim power over her life and live with true grit and grace. You can’t help but be inspired by her ability to turn tragedy into triumph and pain into purpose and to realize you have the same choice every day.


Listen to discover:


  • How to find strength and hope in times of struggle
  • The power of choosing our thoughts and how positive thinking and gratitude really changes your life
  • The importance of community and why getting vulnerable is a strength and not a weakness
  • Her unique “PACER” process for strengthening resiliency and getting through challenges we face in life


Amberly’s book changed my life and has become a touchstone for me when I find myself reaching for hope. I hope that this week’s show inspires you and reminds you that no matter what is going on in your life (or the world), with a little bit of hope and a lot of determination, you can overcome anything!


“Once you realize you have a choice, you take your power back.” – Amberly Lago


“Getting grateful turns what we can’t do into what we can do, and it turns what we don’t have into what we do have.” – Amberly Lago
