"This book teaches you to think like some of the greatest non-conformist minds of our era, to question, challenge, hack, and create new rules for YOUR life so you can define success on your own terms. The Code of the Extraordinary Mind is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is shaped by conditioning and habit. And thus, most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything-love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more-which they inherit and pass on from generation to generation. But what if you could remove these outdated ideas and start anew? What would your life look like if you could forget the rules of the past, and redefine what happiness, purpose, and success mean for you?,"--Amazon.com.
"What if you gave yourself permission to question everything you know and throw out all the pieces that hold you back? Everything you know about the world today follows an invisible set of rules--how we work, love, parent, spend our money, and define success. But what if you could remove these outdated ideas and start anew? What would your life look like if you could forget the rules of the past and redefine what happiness, purpose, and success mean for you? The Code of the Extraordinary Mind is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. Blending computational thinking, integral theory, modern spirituality, evolutionary biology, and wicked humor, Vishen Lakhiani provides a new, revolutionary framework for re-coding yourself with new, empowering beliefs and behaviors to help you live an extraordinary life--a life of more happiness and achievement than you ever thought was possible. Through this book, you will learn 10 laws that empower you with: powerful exercises and methods designed to retrain your mind; unique models like consciousness engineering to help you grow at speeds like never before; the skills to bend reality and live in blissipline; the ability and desire to make a dent in the universe and discover your quest. Throughout, you will find transformative insights drawn from questions that Lakhiani has personally posed to personalities such as Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Peter Diamandis, Arianna Huffington, Ken Wilber, Michael Beckwith, and other legendary thinkers, leaders, and spiritual teachers today. Once you learn the code, you will question your limits and realize that there are none. Your understanding of the world around you and your place in it will change, and you will find yourself operating at a new, extraordinary level in every way--with happiness, purpose, fulfillment, and love."--Dust jacket.
