That was not part of the plan. I mean, I’ve always been the biggest advocate for meditation and a passionate believer in personal growth. What happened?
And what I learned from this experience was even more unexpected. I share it in this video above.
About The Video
Last year, we launched a mammoth project at Mindvalley with an ambition to completely reinvent today’s education system. It became a huge success.
But in the meantime, my health was deteriorating. Everyone wanted me to cut back. Everyone told me, “Vishen, you need to slow down!” But I refused.
Instead, I decided to do something else. And in the end, every single area of my life improved exponentially.
I share the rest of the story in the video above.
How Burnout Can Manifest In Your Life
This all started when I initiated the launch of Mindvalley University City Campus in Barcelona.
This was a massive project. It turned out to be a big success, but during the process, I hit a low point.
You’ve probably heard of burnout before. Well, I experienced a burnout of my own that manifested in my life in a number of ways.
The result of the burnout was shocking to me. I knew about the negative effects of stress. But I didn’t know that stress could affect your mind and body in this way.
When you put yourself through incredible stress for long periods of time, it affects every dimension of your being.
I got physically sick. I was even admitted to the hospital. The people around me were astounded. They knew I had taken on a lot but didn’t realize just how powerful the burn out could be.
And the timing couldn’t have been more inconvenient. It was all happening right in the middle of one of the most important projects of my life.
But this experience taught me a key lesson.
How To Deal With Burnout And Get Things Done
From this experience, I learned something so new about the world and how we operate as human beings.
I learned that doing less isn’t actually the answer to burnout.
People kept urging me to do less, and for a long time, I believed that was the answer.
But the truth is, it’s not about slowing down and relaxing. It’s about something completely different.
It’s about the idea of your personal ceiling.
People telling you to do less to combat burnout have good intentions but there’s another way to deal with burnout and still get things done.
In the video above, I share how I was able to continue on with the Mindvalley University City Campus project and still take care of my health and well being.
Do you believe that you need to work hard to be successful?
Like most people, your answer is most probably ‘yes’. After all, it’s what we’ve all been brought up to believe.
The problem is that when you believe this, you start to lose yourself to the grind. You start to associate success with pain and struggle.
