I bought this book based on the constant reference to it in Mindvalley webinars. I have read the first 80 or so pages. While there are some unique ideas for those who never read self help books, as an avid reader of top class self development books by the best, from Napoleon Hill to Dale Carnegie, to Rhonda Byrne, I found the ideas to be not of that calibre. Its eclectic borrowing of most ideas with a smattering of some food-for-thought ideas, seemed like a waste of my reading time. My schedule is busy, so I prefer reading really thought provoking ideas, and the idea of "doing your own thing and following your heart" is not new. Having said that, I genuinely enjoyed the 6 phase meditation on YouTube and encourage people to experience it. It's not at all the same in the book. There are some good ideas present, but I'm the kind of person who doesn't pliantly soak up ideas like a sponge. I prefer to chew on them. There are many ideas where I don't agree with Vishen at all! I therefore give this 3 stars.
I have read many many self help/ development books and this one has got to be the best. I literally could not put it down. It basically did not tell me anything I did not already know, but the author has framed the information in a very user friendly way. Well worth purchasing.
Excellent read and easy to work through. Has condensed lessons towards the back from quick refreshers to top up your learning. Since I started following mind valley during lockdown I have evolved emotionally and feel a lot stronger mentally. I now meditate daily and have started Yoga. Self care is so important and this is a great kick start to put your mind back on a healthy path to growth. Thank you Vishen. 🙏🏼
The first Half of the book is very much impressive and helped me a lot. The second half is based on the a few well-established practices of the self-improvement. I recommend this book for the first half of it.
I loved the book. Never been so engaged and exited on what’s next. I’ve learned more and had deeper understanding because it comes with online course work. Powerful exercises, unique models, the skills learned are for life!
It changed the way I see my Inner world as well as outside world, it gave me the courage to keep moving in a directions I felt stuck..with happiness, purpose, fulfillment and love.
I would have never known what Mindvalley is if I did not read this book. And the Mindvalley has opened doors, they are all so useful for self improvement and grow.
Education has always been something I struggled but never gave up regardless how hard. Finding this book and through the course at mind-valley, I am introduced to a world I’ve been looking for so long. Love all the contents.
I'm still reading it and dipping into the app, the videos etc. This book is on another level. It's informative, relaative and makes sense of the things you've probably been thinking for a while. It's like Vishen is speaking to you. I love the way he has writing it. This is an enagaging and interactive book in the true sense of the words. I will forever be rereading this one.
This elevates your mind to a whole different level. Just on chapter 5 and I've been able to reach an inner understanding & enlightenment to a lot of questions, doubts and beliefs from my childhood. I'm so grateful to have discovered Vishen & MindValley!!
