Why Happiness Is The New Productivity

About The Video

What started out as a game of “how many Starbucks Coffee I can buy” with the meager profit of the start-up company has now blossomed into a multinational and multi-awarded business.

In one of his best speeches to date, Vishen Lakhiani shares the humble beginnings of his now multi-million dollar business, Mindvalley.

This video was filmed at Engage Today 2009 Live Seminar where Vishen shared the stage with many world-renowned personal growth icons and entrepreneurs. Other guests on that stage include billionaire Sir Richard Branson, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, world-renowned author Stephen Covey, Nobel Prize Winner F.W De Klerk, the founder of Zappos Tony Hsieh, and world-famous artist Wyland.

Vishen shared the secret of his success in what is called being in The Ultimate State of Human Existence, also known as being in flow. 

He recalls the radical turn that allowed him to skyrocket his business despite being passed out in a beach in Bali.

Today, Mindvalley is not just an icon of success, it’s also opening its doors to give everyone access to its trade secrets. Everyone can now learn from and emulate Mindvalley.

Staying true to his goal of touching 1 billion lives by the year 2050, Vishen believes he can achieve it through by – amongst others – open sourcing the Mindvalley operations. He has now started a revolution in the world of education in what seems to be another radical turn in his life.
