    52. How to Be Unf*ckwithable | Vishen Lakhiani, CEO of Mindvalley

    Vishen Lakhiani is the founder and CEO of Mindvalley.com, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Code of the Extraordinary Mind, and an innovation board member of the XPrize.

    As a Malayasian-born entrepreneur, Vishen started his career by pursuing the traditional path by working for Microsoft in the United States. After realizing his desire for building something new, he started Mindvalley in 2002, and has bootstrapped the business to over 400 employees and millions of dollars in revenue.

    I did my best to take my conversation with Vishen in a fresh direction where he has normally not gone, as he shares. 

    We delved into some meaningful points including:


    The formula that Vishen uses to tell remarkable stories and become a better speaker
    Strategies and tactics to memorize anything including grocery items, names, and long numbers
    I put Vishen on the spot to memorize 20 numbers I write down (and ask him to do it backwards!)
    His honest experience on Ayahausca and some freaky revelations that he stumbled upon during the experience
    much more

    Bret Weinstein is an evolutionary biologist, former professor at Evergreen State College, and part of the Intellectual Dark Web alongside members like his brother Eric Weinstein, Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, Joe Rogan, and Ben Shapiro.

    Bret came into the spotlight as part of the controversy that occured at Evergreen State College (recommend a quick google), and is now using his platform to promote Unity2020, a new political system where two candidates from the left and right are drafted to become President and Vice President of the United States.

    What really happened with the Evergreen controversy
    The deep-rooted racism in the world and how we can take actionable steps to reduce it
    Unity2020: what is it, why is it needed, and who are the candidates? (hint: one of them is a former guest on Growth Minds)
    Why it's crucial that we remain open-minded while thinking independently

    47. Dr. Drew - How to Be More Attractive

    47. Dr. Drew - How to Be More Attractive

    Dr. Drew (David Drew Pinsky) is a doctor of internal medicine and addiction specialist who became globally recognized through his appearances on Loveline, Celebrity Rehab, Ellen, Oprah, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and much more. 

    I was fascinated to hear Dr. Drew's expansive knowledge about history and philosophy, and how he applies it to lead a more fulfilling life. We also dug into human attraction and why we're attracted to certain types of people, attachment theory, how he makes time for self-care and growth, why social contracts like marriage are important, and much more.

    This has been one of my favorite episodes to date, and I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did.

    Timestamps:

    [01:30] How Dr. Drew started his career in medicine and rose to fame
    [13:00] Can introverts become extroverts (and vice versa?)
    [20:30] Finding time to learn, and take care of yourself with a busy schedule
    [23:00] Stoic philosophy (plus story on how. he got Ryan Holiday started on stoicism)
    [26:25] Dr. Drew's current philosophy and how he applies it to his life
    [28:45] What Dr. Drew thinks about the cancel culture today
    [34:50] Should students still go to college in the future?
    [41:00] Can you still be friends with your ex?
    [43:30] Are humans closer to bonobos or chimpanzees (aka are we polygamous animals?)
    [49:00] Attachment theory
    [55:00] What do women find attractive in a man, and what attractive qualities do men look for in women?
