182: Losing The Facade With Kristina Mänd Lakhiani

Getting Value? Share It

“I understood that what I am inside is not what I showed to the world… because that’s the weird thing about delusion. You do not know that aren’t seeing the right picture.” - Kristina Mänd-LakhianiClick to Tweet

Have you ever felt like you’re constantly chasing something more? You checked off your boxes, you’ve crossed off your list and you’ve reached your financial goals. Yet, for some reason you still feel a void. What is that about?

It’s normal for us to put our self-worth and value in milestones and tangible accomplishments. It’s what the world tells us to do. But once we reach those goals and still feel unfulfilled, why doesn’t the world tell us what to do then? Suddenly we don’t know what to do. Yet, the people around us think we’ve got it all figured out. Surely something is wrong with us…Right?

Well, believe it or not, life is about more than success stories. Therefore, maybe there’s some inner work for each of us to do. That’s why on today’s episode of Personal Development Without The Fluff, we are joined by Life Philosopher and Co-Founder of Mindvalley, Kristina Mänd Lakhiani to discuss authenticity and the way it affects us and others around us.

Tune in to this conversation to learn what we might encounter in life as we begin stripping away layers of our facades and coming to know our true selves. You can learn more about Kristina in the links below

The Cliff Notes:

  • Even people who have “made it” can be teachable. 
  • Many incredibly “successful” people tend to be driven by a feeling of “not enough-ness.”
  • Achieving careers or wealth are only bandaids to the real personal development that gets to be done.
  • Looking at only your faults that need to be fixed is an unhealthy habit.
  • Masks are appropriate and necessary sometimes. The problem comes when we start to rely on them. 
  • Sometimes we have to admit hard things to ourselves that might go against society’s tradition.
  • It’s inevitable that being your authentic self might hurt people you love.  
“There will be the moment when you’ll have to communicate, to the world and to the people you love the most, something which might hurt them. And you will still have to be true to that.” - Kristina Mänd-LakhianiClick to Tweet
