As you may know by now, I am a huge fan of Mindvalley. I have found that being on the Quest All Access Pass has changed my life in so many ways. In the past I looked at mental development as something for the weak. I had many successes and financial fears motivated me to push harder and I achieved some amazing things while working 18 hours a day. However, mentally I wasn’t in the place I should have been. All it takes is something as small as a breakup to completely damage everything around you. It doesn’t matter what your financial situation is at that point, everything around you will look gloomy if you don’t get your mindset in the right place.
That’s where the Habit of Ferocity has been helping. Steven Kotler teaches you many methods that will help you. I first heard about Steven Kotler after picking up the book Abundance and it shifted my mind away from the political turmoil we’re going through and towards making a positive change for humanity. I have also picked up Bold, but haven’t started it yet. That somehow led me to Mindvalley and after paying for the Quest All Access Pass I saw that he had a course there. It was by fluke and I’m so happy I found it.
He teaches us how to find our path and achieve The Habit of Ferocity. Pretty quick into the program he has us write a list of 25 curiosities. This was lots of fun for me, so I’m going to post it below.
After you set out your curiosities he teaches how to turn that into fuel so you can access flow and achieve more than you could imagine. I haven’t achieved these curiosities yet, but I’m making far more progress than before and I’m not stressing as much. Soon I’ll jump on YouTube a little more consistently in order to show anyone else who has the same curiosities.

All of the Mindvalley quests and courses have the same quality we’ve come to expect. HD and very visually appealing. All of the quests have a really cool way of learning where you only do 5-30 minute lessons once a day for a month to three months (35 days for The Habit of Ferocity). This gives you all the information in bite sized pieces so you can retain as much information as possible. It also makes it so you can fit the lessons into any schedule.
I found that purchasing the year Quest All Access Pass made all the courses at MindValley extremely worth it. This course alone costs a couple hundred dollars, but if you get the full Quest All Access Pass you get 20-something quests and courses. It did cost me $799, but you that works out to around $30/course. So $30 for this quest is amazing!
However, even if you only buy this one course outright you get it for life instead of on a yearly membership and you are learning from someone who walks the walk.
If you are having trouble finding your focus in life then I highly recommend this course or all of Mindvalley’s courses if you have the money for it. Remember, lots of us are paying that much for 1 course at university, but does University to anything for your mental mindset? I’d say the mental mindset is the most important aspect of our lives.
