Quest for "The Habit of Ferocity" with Steven Kotler

Mindvalley Quests: The World’s Highest Performing Learning Platform

The Habit of Ferocity

The Habit of Ferocity



The problem is we’re not living up to our full potential…because we’re not in the habit of living up to our full potential.

Why is this video important? What we’re giving you here is the opening video for our new Quest with Steven Kotler, called ‘The Habit of Ferocity’.

Now you may be wondering why would Mindvalley be launching a program called ‘The Habit of Ferocity’?
Firstly, know that “ferocity” here doesn’t mean fierce. Rather, ‘The Habit of Ferocity’ is about examining the consciousness of work and giving you the right tools so that you can be your best in your passions, your work, your creativity, and so much more.

In a poll of our Mindvalley community, people repeatedly said the #1 thing they want more in their life is abundance. And yes, abundance comes from a healthy mindset but the other way we grow in abundance is when we succeed in the things we give our energy to.

And there’s an emerging science to this that’s far beyond traditional ideas of productivity and work optimization. It bridges the gap between consciousness and the 9 to 5.

If you’re passionate about personal transformation, it may sometimes feel like your brain is your worst enemy.
Take exercise for instance: is working out really the hard part? Or is it pushing through the inner resistance, just so you can show up at the gym?

The reason your well-meaning brain sabotages you is simple: whether it’s post-workout exhaustion, or the effort it takes to learn a new professional skill – it’s been conditioned to shield you from pain, failure, and discomfort.

This made sense for our prehistoric ancestors constantly trying to outrun saber-toothed tigers.

But in today’s world, failure and discomfort are necessary stepping stones towards surviving and thriving.

So if you find yourself too often wrestling with your own mind instead of realizing your fullest potential, consider this:

“What If You Could Rewire Your Brain To Reject Mediocrity – And Automatically Choose Transformational Growth Instead?”

This programming is what separates top performers from everyone else. It’s what gets them up in the morning when others sleep. It’s what motivates them to keep trying where others give up.

It’s what empowers them to achieve the impossible – when others can only dream of it.

This is the upper hand you’ll gain through The Habit of Ferocity: Mindvalley’s new Quest with acclaimed high-performance expert Steven Kotler.

By drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, physiology, and psychology, Steven trains you to adopt the peak performance formula known as ‘ferocity’: the one differentiating habit that makes the world’s most successful people, unstoppable.

Whether you’re looking to get ahead in your career, master a new skill, amplify your creativity, productivity, and focus, or simply be your best self – mastering ferocity will turn the extraordinary performance into an effortless habit for you.

Switch Off Mediocrity. Switch On Ferocity.

Ferocity is a series of neurological and physiological habits that automate peak performance.

When you have ferocity, you are perpetually motivated to grow and push your boundaries – instead of hiding in your comfort zone.

You have constant access to your peak focus, productivity, creativity, and intuition – no more wasted time or energy.

And you are consistently unstoppable – even when faced with unexpected setbacks and adversity that would previously leave you giving up.

Switching on your ferocity means switching on your ability to achieve goals and solve challenges that others might consider impossible.

Many of the world’s top performers embody ferocity – often without even realizing it.

But by studying and synthesizing this phenomenon, Steven Kotler has created a framework that anyone can follow to rapidly and permanently channel its power into their lives.

The key lies in understanding the ingredients of ferocity. Lining up your extrinsic and intrinsic motivators. And rewiring your mind to channel ferocity on autopilot, with no conscious effort or resistance.

In The Habit of Ferocity Quest, Steven himself guides you through every step of this transformational process – until ferocity becomes your default state.

Steven Kotler is one of the world’s leading peak performance experts. He is the New York Times bestselling author of books like Stealing Fire and The Rise of Superman, and a highly sought-after trainer and speaker with clients including Google, Cisco, Deloitte, a stable of professional athletes, and the US Special Forces.

Back in his thirties, Steven was an award-winning journalist with a promising career ahead of him. Then he contracted Lyme disease, which not only destroyed his career’s momentum – but attacked his neurological wellbeing; leaving him depressed, defeated, and suicidal.

Steven’s life was saved on the day his friends persuaded him to go surfing. While he caught the waves in the ocean, something amazing happened: he felt the thick mental fog of his illness lifting for the first time, as he entered a state of heightened clarity, focus, and performance – which many now know as ‘flow’.

This experience was Steven’s turning point. A stubbornly scientific thinker, he committed his life to understanding and mastering this mysterious state of consciousness, and others like it.

On this Mindvalley Masterclass, Steven will share how to harness ‘ferocity’: a behavioral formula used by many of the world’s peak performers to rise above insurmountable obstacles and achieve impossible feats.

By drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, and physiology, Steven will reveal how you too can become unstoppable by tapping into superhuman levels of grit, motivation, and momentum from deep within.
