The Pursuit Of Happiness with Mindvalley Co-Founder Kristina Mand-Lakhiani 

What does true happiness look like for you? 

Most people believe that they will find  happiness once they have become famous, wealthy, or successful. 

But the hard truth is that happiness is not something that can be bought or given to you by someone else. 

It’s something we have to create for ourselves. 

Kristina Mand-Lakhiani, co-founder of the world renowned global educational organization, Mindvalley, advocates that everyone is 100% responsible for their happiness in life. 

She believes that life is too important to be taken seriously and brings joy and love into everything she does.  

Kristina has impacted thousands of lives by teaching people that the journey to finding true happiness isn’t the rosy picture so often painted for us. 

In this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life, Kristina and I discuss why she is so passionate about teaching people how to discover true happiness, how she came to co-found Mindvalley, and why it’s the connections we make in our lifetime that really matter. 

What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • Why being in a state of happiness will boost your chances of success
  • How your emotions could be holding you back
  • Why other people will never bring you true happiness
  • And much more!

“Emotions are like water. If they flow through, they stay clean. If you put a barrier on their path and they start gathering and you don’t deal with them, that’s when they start stinking.”
