People Profits & Purpose Podcast – Ajit Nawalkha – Episode 9 – Understanding life & living BIG

Ajit is a business coach, angel investor, speaker and author with the motto of LIVE BIG. He’s the Co-Founder of Mindvalley and is keenly focussed on creating personal excellence in himself and others. Born in India to a small household of only 22 people (all in the same house) it’s pretty amazing that he’s described by most as having infectious calmness. Starting out with a lack of abundance or understanding of money in the world… most learn early that money is the most important thing – providing safety, security and is the measure of success!  BUT – is that really the case?  Ajit disagrees. Ajit is  currently writing an edgy guide for business coaches (due out 2018) and is happy to share the core themes and how to implement them today. For a  vegetarian who lists “Understanding Humans” as his super-power, in this episode Nick speaks to him about his journey from his beginnings to MindValley, his biggest lessons to date and why humans actually need a challenge!
  • Questioning your reality
  • There’s more exciting things in life than money

01:30 1st Universal Theme – “Yin & Yang” – Life Balance discussed

01:48 Duality – the varied sides of the same person.

02:50 2nd Universal Theme – “Ouroboros” (Snake Eating Own Tail).  To continuously improve yourself

04:21 Principle 1 – “Mindset” defined… how it affects us.  The thoughts we spend time on dictate the condition we’re in.

05:15 Principle 2 – “Strategy” defined… once we’ve thought about something… how do we get it done?

05:50 Principle 3 – “Mastery” – unconscious competence – don’t need to think.  You make it look easy.  

07:14 Principle 4 – “Evolution” – Continually bettering yourself.  Mental, Physical, Spiritual.  

09:02 What will the show include?  Combination of stand-alone topic / theme (thoughts, tools techniques) and Guest Interviews (hone in on some cool people).  

09:16 Fresh approach – three key focus points for the show: “People, Profits and Purpose”

09:44 PEOPLE:   Deconstruct superstars, athletes, musicians.. Those helping us get better.  Those pushing humanity forward.  Break things down what they do and how we can incorporate this into our own lives.

10:31 Will also include “Ordinary” people doing extraordinary things.  Nick’s sister – the adversity, the achievements to learn from how she dealt with things.  Not just well-known people.

11:19 Who and What people are?  Where do they come from, what makes them tick?  What keeps them awake at night?  What challenges and adversity they’ve gone through.  What can we learn from their successes and failures?  Common thread for all of us.

12:25 PROFITS:   The money side of life.  Can’t trade cows for beans… we need money to interact.   What skillsets do we know to grow business?  How to create wealth, what to do with money when we have it?  What can we learn from those who are already successful?  

13:51 What can technology do to increase your income?  How to be profitable with business or life.

14:19 PURPOSE: Why do people do what they do?  What does it mean to be in FLOW?  How do we know what our purpose is and stay on track?  How to get or learn that “knowing” or A-Ha moment?

16:05 How to share your purpose with others?

16:30 Who are you and would you like to see on the show?
