    EP 032 - Quadruple Amputee Alex Lewis: Finding Your Way Out of Hell—and Thriving

    EP 032 - Quadruple Amputee Alex Lewis: Finding Your Way Out of Hell—and Thriving

    “I was told early on that with amputation 95% is mental and 5% is physical. If you get your head straight, the rest will follow.” - Alex Lewis

    There are people in this world who just blow your socks off with their courage and strength despite the massive adversities they had to go through.

    Alex Lewis, our guest in this interview, is one of those people.

    Before Alex lost his limbs and his lips, he was—as he describes himself—just a regular guy, with a partner and a two-year-old son, who ran a restaurant and who was primarily a stay-at-home dad.

    All this, however, changed in November 2013 when he fell ill.

    If you’d like to engage more with this interview, you can also watch the videotaped version on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/wW5PIqnc2II

    Some of the Questions:


    What happened in November 2013 when you thought you only had a common cold? What did those days seem like and when did you know something was not right?
    Is there something you would say to the “old you” (the one with limbs) that you feel could have helped you to live a better life?
    I read somewhere that you really liked the book Man's Search for Meaning by Víctor Frankl. What parts of the book spoke to you the most?

    What You Will Learn from this Episode:


    When and why Alex decided to fight and not remain a victim
    How he has learned to accept the changes that had happened to his body and to feel okay with them
    Why Alex received a personal invitation from Chris Martin, the lead singer of Coldplay

    The 5-Bullet Point Episode (EP's 26-30)

    Woohoo! Another 5 episodes have passed on The IPS Podcast.

    As the host of this podcast I’d like to take a moment to celebrate putting these episodes out into the world and a moment to feel deep appreciation for each guest who took the time to appear on the show and share their lessons, wisdom, and insights.

    Therefore, Dr. Martin Inderbitzin, Signe Hegestand, Craig Stanland, and Kristina Paltén (if you wonder why there are only 4 guests it is because episode 30 was one I did), thank you, if you are reading this, for being a guest on the show, for the work you do, and the incredible human beings you are!

    In these 5-Bullet Point Episodes, which follow whenever 5 episodes have come out, you can hear snippets - a preview of each full episode, so you can gain insight into what they are about and see which full interview might spark your interest and would be worth investing your time in.
