What does it take to consistently achieve paradigm-shifting, never seen before breakthroughs?

In this popular Mindvalley University presentation, leading researcher from the Flow Research Collective, Steven Kotler, reveals the single common denominator to consistently and deliberately operate at peak human performance: flow state.

When we’re in this elevated state of consciousness, everything seems easy, effortless, and the results (and sensations) are incredible. We’re more productive, creative and resilient than we could ever imagine. We literally learn and make neurochemical synapses faster. We bridge connections we never even realized were possible, create what was previously unimaginable and attain unprecedented physical feats never dreamed of before.

The best news: flow state is hackable.

As one of the world’s top specialists in altered states of consciousness, Steven shares potent strategies on how we can induce flow state to reach peak human performance in our career, health, relationships, business, athletic endeavors and every aspect of our life.

You have to believe that you can achieve the impossible before you achieve the impossible. There’s just no other way around it.
