Educational systems are now facing a major problem — they can’t keep up with the demands, desires, and needs of a rapidly advancing world.

People have more opportunities and more complicated lives than ever before, yet our universities haven’t evolved.

Schools are preparing kids for a world that no longer exists.

But in this episode of London Real, Brian Rose interviews Mindvalley Founder, Vishen Lakhiani, who is creating an alternative model of education to help people thrive in modern life. (Watch the full episode here.)

Most people think that learning is the key to self-development

It’s how we were raised – when we were young, we studied algebra, read history, and memorized the names of elements on the periodic table.

But once you grow up and experience life, you realize that you can’t ‘learn certain things – like personal growth.

Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley and New York Times Bestselling author, discovered that the key to self-development was not to ‘learn’, but rather, to ‘transform’.
