“Your success doesn’t depend on you being perfect.” This episode is so powerful, and I can’t wait for you to hear it. I got to interview one of the co-founders of the hugely popular and powerful transformation education company MindValley. But what was especially amazing about this conversation was that we were discussing new ways to understand the power of belief and authenticity.

As an entrepreneur, speaker, philanthropist, partner, and mother Kristina Mänd-Lakhiani has been engaging in the personal transformation industry for over 15 years, collaborating and playing with leading thinkers and teachers in consciousness, relationships, human performance, and life optimization.

She started her career working for the government of Estonia, where she was born and raised, before she joined the non-profit sector and worked for organizations such as the United Nations, Oxfam, and AIESEC. In 2003, she co-founded Mindvalley — a global school that delivers transformational education for all ages. In 2009, she launched Mindvalley Russian, taking Mindvalley’s best authors and teachings to the Russian-speaking market.

She’s also the author of Live By Your Own Rules, a 30-day optimal learning quest designed for transformation to help you identify, understand, and accept all the dimensions of your authentic self so that you can live an extraordinary life and make happiness a regular practice.

In this episode, we talk about how Kristina learned to harness belief and authenticity for herself, the power of saying no to perfectionism, and pro tips for being a successful speaker.


Here’s what you will learn:

  • A new way to understand belief (4:31)
  • How to find happiness in the moment (11:59)
  • How our different motivations move us (19:20)
  • What you can learn from MindValley (26:18)
