TRANSCEND THE CULTURESCAPE

We live in two types of worlds - absolute truth (where everyone agrees on the same) & relative truth (ideas, models, and myths that are passing through the generation). This world of relative truth is known as the culturescape.

"Extraordinary minds are good at seeing the culturescape and are able to selectively choose the rules and conditions to follow versus those to question or ignore. Therefore, they tend to take the path less traveled and innovate on the idea of what it means to truly live."

CONSCIOUSNESS ENGINEERING

Consciousness Engineering is an operating system for the human mind. Your models of reality are like the hardware: They’re your beliefs about yourself and the world. Your systems for living are like the software. 

We live with outdated beliefs and habits without even knowing it. When you swap out old, expired models and systems that limit you, you’re elevating your consciousness and opening the path to extraordinary living.

"Extraordinary minds understand that their growth depends on two things: their models of reality and their systems for living. They carefully curate the most empowering models and systems and frequently update themselves."

QUESTION THE BRULES

A Brule is a bulls**t rule that society adopts to simplify its understanding of the world.

"Extraordinary minds question the Brules when they feel those Brules are out of alignment with their dreams and desires. They recognize that much of the way the world works is due to people blindly following Brules that have long passed their expiration date."

REWRITE YOUR MODELS OF REALITY

It’s up to us to choose what we want to believe about ourselves and our lives— and give our children the power to do the same.

"Extraordinary minds have models of reality that empower them to feel good about themselves and powerful in shifting the world to match the visions in their minds."

UPGRADE YOUR SYSTEMS FOR LIVING

Take a break from your busy life and ask - why we’re doing it?

Extraordinary minds are always looking to learning something new and refresh their systems for living. Then they evaluate to see how well those systems are working. Then they upgrade to the system.

"Extraordinary minds consistently spend time discovering, upgrading, and measuring new systems for living applied to life, work, heart, and soul. They are in a perpetual state of growth and self-innovation."

BEND REALITY

As you start playing with consciousness engineering, questioning the Brules, and experimenting with new models of reality and systems for living, life starts to feel spacious and exciting. You’re moving toward a powerful upgrade. As Vishen calls it Bending Reality.

There are two key things you feel in this state: 

  • You have a bold vision for the future pulling you forward.
  • You’re happy in the NOW.

CREATE A VISION FOR YOUR FUTURE

  • Means Goals—goals that are a means to an end—and usually about meeting or conforming to society’s Brules.
  • End Goals - when follow our heart, the goals that excite and inspire us, and put our ultimate target in our sights.

Pursuing end goals accelerates our momentum toward the extraordinary.

Extraordinary minds create a vision for their future that is decidedly their own and free from expectations of the culturescape. Their vision is focused on end goals that strike a direct chord with their happiness.

BE UNFUCKWITHABLE

It involves understanding two particular models of reality:

  1. SELF-FUELED GOALS: These are end goals that you have absolute control over. No one can take them away from you.
  2. YOU ARE ENOUGH: You need not to prove anything to anyone.

EMBRACE YOUR QUEST

The Uniqueness of extraordinary people is that they’re driven by a vision so big that they’re operating beyond the conventional limitations of work and life.

"Extraordinary minds are motivated by a quest or calling—a drive to create some positive change in the world. This drive propels them forward in life and helps them to gain meaning and make a meaningful contribution."

I’m a generalist, philosopher, writer, tutor, paralegal, strategist, researcher, Bohemian, bibliophile, an intellectual and an analyst.

I read this book in the year 2018 when I stumbled upon an ESL and a self-improvement mentor by working for him as his content writer for his blogs, providing show notes for his podcast and rewriting his English as a second language teaching materials. Despite Vishen Lakhiani, the founder of Mindvalley, a self - development publishing company and hosting Awesomeness Fest event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is controversial man, but his book did make some sense to think about conventional thoughts that we were taught since we were growing up.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
