Many people want to have a successful and meaningful life, but they haven’t been taught how to create that in their own lives. Furthermore, they don’t understand the science behind our very own psychology. Imagine the ability to increase your capacity for intelligence, manage stress effortlessly, and generate new ideas without much thought. In this course, we will cover five of the biggest mindset shifts that uber-successful people have adopted in their own lives.

Expect to develop a revolutionary new way of thinking, based on Integral Life Practice (ILP). ILP stands out as one of the most effective frameworks to facilitate vertical development because of its focus on human psychology.

In order to create a life that you want, you must first start with the psychology of success. Imagine what it feels to have everything the way you want it. Now imagine what it might take to get there. Did you feel empowered or overwhelmed? If like most people you felt overwhelmed, this course is for you. It will help you develop inner strength and put you in the right state of mind to accomplish your biggest dreams.

When you have completed the course, you will be able to design your life and recognize your own self-limiting beliefs to success improving every aspect of your life. You will also be able to blueprint how others have achieved success you admire.

This course is taught by Adam Leonard in collaboration with David Landau. David is a serial entrepreneur and lifelong mystical researcher, and provides 1:1 coaching in spiritual development and life success planning, and Adam currently works training meditation instructors at Google.

In this course, we will discuss each mindset shift and why it contributes to a fulfilling, happy and meaningful life.

  • This course is not for people looking for ways to “shortcut” success, developing your own psyche is a difficult part of creating your own life.
  • Self-limiting beliefs and habits are very real parts of this course. You should have a good sense of self and negative self-reinforcing behaviors.

Founder of Opti: Customized and optimized education paths.

I love optimizing personal growth, business, and every system I see in life.

In over 10 years of entrepreneurship, I've become convinced that self-mastery is a key determinant of our biggest successes and failures.

I mentor startups to help them refine their visions, business models and monetization strategy. This often leads to sales coaching, which I really enjoy and have studied extensively.

I’m obsessed with scalable approaches to dramatically enhance cognition, productivity and engagement. The prototype name for my current company was called "Engineered Self Optimization," because I think it's ridiculously unfortunate for anyone not to be their best. We constantly upgrade our technology; why not make sure our life and biology is in the absolute best state possible?

When there's time, I've been a painter, improv joke teller, transhumanist, and writer, and started zen meditation at age 13.

I started managing people at 14 and launched my first company at 19. I love studying leadership, strategy, sales, and marketing, and love building exceptional teams. Thanks to passionate coworkers, my companies have grossed $5M+, created several hundred jobs and dozens of internships.

I study patterns in society that will affect a product’s success, and try to predict where the world is heading 5, 10 and 20 years from now. AI, synthetic biology, neural interfaces, robotics, security and data science are among the most important exponential technologies we can study.

As this continues, our ability to adapt, learn and evolve will affect our success potentially more than any other factor. I wish, as kids, we were taught self-actualization, logic, heuristics, biases, rationalism, argumentation and compassion. The world would be such a better place if more people were as proficient with internal tools (psychology) as they are with external tools (technology).

I love working with people who are authentic, genuine, mindful, and have high integrity.
