Episode seven of The Radical Brilliance Podcast is Vishen Lakhiani, the founder of Mindvalley.
There is an overwhelming amount of information on the web, in books, seminars, and online courses, about how we can be the best versions of ourselves. Lots of people talk about this and have inspiring ideas, models, and practices to teach. Unfortunately, not everybody walks their talk as impressively as we might like. It is one thing to write a book about the seven steps to becoming the best possible you, but to actually live as the best possible version of yourself in a way that is impressive, not only to you, but everyone close to you, that is a different matter. I have known Vishen for more than 10 years, and I honestly cannot think of anyone who has been through a more dramatic transformation than he has. Through a deliberate continuous exploration, he has hacked every aspect of his life, his diet, his body, his ability to learn, the way he shows up as a father, everything. Vishen is not just talking about personal transformation, he is embodying it. Enjoy this conversation.
