In this episode, I spoke to Jewish educator, author, podcaster, and life coach Shlomo Buxbaum. The author of "The Four Elements of an Empowered Life" shared pieces of advice from his journey migrating to the US and how he made a name for himself despite his tribulations.
He goes deep into the reasons why we feel certain things, act in certain ways, and how we can move forward with a more empowered outlook in life.

EPIC Words of Shlomo Buxbaum :
“We can have one purpose at one point in our life and that becomes our whole world – but then we look at that life of ours and we say, ‘You know what, that’s not me anymore’, and then we look elsewhere and that becomes our mission. It’s a beautiful process…”
“We go through dry spells in our life. They can last a short time, they can last a long time, with anything… I think that the key is to not remain stagnant, but also to realize that you need to give yourself that grace.”
“When your heart is broken, it opens a certain amount of depth to receive and to give.”
“The primary way that we identify ourselves is bigger than all of the tasks, bigger than anything we’re attached to… Ultimately, ‘what am I?’ I am something that is so much bigger than all of this, and because of that, I can take a step out and look at it from almost this high level place…”
“Even when you’re in a dark place, you’ll understand that this is really part of that beautiful picture.”
