Take your suffering and turn it into your superpower.

This talk is brought to you from Mindvalley’s Reunion stage in Los Angeles 2019, Mindvalley founder Vishen Lakhiani reveals how we can use our pain and hardship as fuel to become our life’s mission and create something greater in the world.

When you take your suffering and figure out the stand it’s going to give you and how to put it into your life mission, the suffering disappears.
