The three hacks to help you with your fears of rejection

This is what you need to help you change your life and the lives of others around you.

Ask yourself if the criticisms you face in your life crippling your hopes and pursuit for your dreams. If they are, this is the episode for you. On the stage of Mindvalley’s A-Fest Mykonos on the theme of Bio-Hacking, Vishen brought on stage with him three incredible guests that have changed his life.

Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof, famed hypnotherapist Marisa Peer, and world-renowned intuitive teacher Sonia Choquette, share their insights on how to become unfuckwithable. The learnings Vishen gained from these teachers have helped him shift his own perspectives towards fears of rejection and criticism.

“Extraordinary minds do not need to seek validation
from outside opinions or through the attainment of goals.
Instead, they’re truly at peace with themselves and the world around them.”
