Overcome perfectionism and self-doubt by unapologetically embracing your fully awesome self—flaws and all—with the co-founder of Mindvalley, a global school that delivers transformational education for all ages.
Perfectionism is the one thing that often stands between us and lasting, deep happiness and feelings of peace and fulfillment. As life happens, we fall in love with the idea of who we could be instead of with who we actually are—leaving parts of ourselves behind and losing sight of what and who are truly important. How can we simultaneously live as ourselves without ourselves?
By sharing revelatory personal anecdotes and thoughtful reflection prompts, Kristina Mänd-Lakhiani, co-founder of the global transformational school Mindvalley, guides you toward:
Finding your own truth despite the external and internal critics
Transforming ideas of the Perfect You into the embodiment of the Real You
Embracing a life where no one needs fixing
Only by finding your way back to yourself and understanding who you really are—by accepting your dents and scratches, your quirky uniqueness, and your flaws—will you thrive in being unapologetically you, most flawesomely.
