Today’s guest is making a long overdue and timely return to the London Real Studios and I’m delighted to welcome him back, not least to help spread some positivity along with some tangible methods that can help everyone shift to a growth mindset and make sure that those New Year goals don’t fall by the wayside.
Vishen Lakhiani is an entrepreneur, bestselling author, motivational speaker, personal growth expert, activist and all round ball of energy. He is the founder and CEO of Mindvalley, a personal growth education platform that has more than 20 million students across 195 countries worldwide.
Mindvalley has become internationally recognised and is home to some truly powerful messages from the world’s greatest thought leaders, with educational programs that include Mind, Body, Soul, Entrepreneurship, Career, and Relationships. But, this is a far cry from Vishen’s early life, and perhaps more so from the Silicon Valley startup that he worked at post graduation.
As a young teen, Vishen discovered a book in his father’s collection that would have a truly profound impact on his life. The Silva Mind Control Method, offered a form of meditation and a healing protocol using visualisation that would become one of the earliest personal growth systems in America. For Vishen it began a lifelong fascination with self-empowerment and a spiritual journey that continues to this day.
Vishen was recognised by the Watkins List as one of the Top 100 Most Influential Spiritual Teachers of 2022, while his Mindvalley Podcast is ranked among the top 5% worldwide.
As the bestselling author of “The Code of the Extraordinary Mind” and “The Buddha and the Badass: The Secret Spiritual Art of Succeeding at Work”, the first of which has been translated into 25 languages and reached the #1 spot on Amazon five times, Vishen’s goal of uniting our broken world and ushering in a new golden age for humanity is well on course.
You see Vishen wants to bring Mindvalley into the global consciousness by impacting a billion lives across the planet, and he believes that by focusing inward, anybody is capable of increasing their focus, achieving their goals and manifesting their dreams.
To that end, his latest book “The 6 Phase Meditation Method: The Proven Technique to Supercharge Your Mind, Manifest Your Goals, and Make Magic in Minutes a Day”, is a foolproof easy to follow meditation strategy that is packed with game changing tools and advice.
The book breaks down the very best in modern day knowledge in the areas of neuroscience, psychology, and dogma-free spirituality – mixed in with Vishen‘s unique and inspiring discoveries as a meditation instructor. It brilliantly illustrates how to effectively use meditation to unlock your hidden potential and manifest the kind of life most only dream of.
“The 6 Phase is a protocol for how you show up in the world, they are six unique phases of being human. If we can install these values in the morning when we wake up, we can affect our mood, intention, performance, and quality of life.”
Vishen believes unequivocally that each and every one of us should make growth our number 1 priority above all else. Only by doing this can we evolve and achieve our highest state and in turn make the world a better place for everyone.
Vishen is now expanding Mindvalley’s presence globally with the aim to bring its teachers, tech, and programs into 100 national school systems and every company in the Fortune 500 within the next few years. Some lofty goals indeed, but, it is exactly this kind of vision that I set out with when I created London Real, over ten years ago.
I’m really looking forward to catching up with Vishen, and taking a deep dive into everything he’s been up to. It’s these exact conversations and exchanging of ideas that can help inspire people and change lives for the better.
As Vishen himself says,
“The most extraordinary people in the world today don’t have a career. They have a mission.”
