Unhappiness can plummet the best business minds into negative spiral. Here’s how to fix that.

Vishen Lakhiani returned from his honeymoon to find that his salary had been cut in half, he’d been inexplicably put on a US “terrorist suspect” list and he’d been reduced to renting a sofa from a student. Five years later, he was running a successful company – but the fun and excitement of work had been replaced by stress and financial pressure and he was no more happy than he’d been before.

In this hugely popular and insightful talk, the Mindvalley CEO puts forward his all-encompassing Theory of Awesomeness, a concept that focusses on building a life instead of just building a business, and thinking about how entrepreneurship can help to make us happy as well as making us rich.

So, whether you’re just starting out, your business is stalling or you’re wondering why success has left you dissatisfied, cancel your lunch break plans and settle down to listen to Lakhiani’s words of wisdom.
