Mindvalley’s partnership with Lifebook began with a gruelling 25-hour flight back in 2009.
Thanks to a friend’s glowing recommendation, Mindvalley founder Vishen Lakhiani traveled from Kuala Lumpur to Chicago to attend a Lifebook retreat - or as his friend called it, “the event that transformed my life”.
Vishen emerged from that retreat with his very own Lifebook: and a total shift in his vision of who he wanted to be, what he wanted to experience, and how he was going to make it happen.
Over the next few years, Vishen’s life began to change drastically.
Riffing off a spontaneous idea, he launched A-Fest: a personal transformation festival that quickly became one of the most coveted in the world.
A-Fest empowered Vishen to quickly realize many of his personal goals: including traveling across the globe, speaking on the world’s biggest stages, and surrounding himself with inspiring people.
All these goals were exactly what Vishen had spelled out in his Lifebook.
Not long after, Mindvalley - which at the time was primarily a publishing company - began to unravel when Vishen and his business partner decided to part ways.
But then, instead of shutting the company down, Vishen chose to rebuild Mindvalley into what he had always envisioned it to be: a global movement on a mission to evolve the education industry.
This, once again, was the exact vision Vishen had laid out in his Lifebook.
Today, Lifebook has become an integral part of the Mindvalley ecosystem.
To our students, it’s the single most popular program we’ve ever published.
And to our team members, it’s a rite of passage. In fact just like Vishen did all those years ago, every new team member spends 4 days at a mountain retreat creating their very own Lifebook.
We believe in the power of Lifebook. And we’re proud to play our part in empowering even more people with this remarkable lifestyle design system.
