SAN FRANCISCO, June 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Millions of employees are facing massive challenges in 2020 due to COVID-19 resulting in real transformations in the way we view the traditional workplace. In the wake of the current social climate, these monumental shifts not only incorporate the way we work, but also how large corporations are exhibiting leadership and supporting growth for employees. Vishen Lakhiani, New York Times bestselling author and founder of leading personal growth company Mindvalley, is joining the conversation by sharing his wisdom and learnings from his second book, The Buddha and The Badass: The Secret Spiritual Art of Succeeding at Work, on sale June 9, 2020 by Rodale Books.

The average person in the developed world spends 70 percent of their waking hours at work and is miserable for most of those hours. Lakhiani‘s ‘bible for changing the nature of work’ is completely disrupting our most deeply held career beliefs and the myth that hard work and hustle are the paths to success. The only way to make a tangible difference is to break free from traditional ways of thinking and embrace today’s workplace evolution. 

The book, which debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal Business Bestseller list and #9 on The New York Times bestseller Advice, How-To list, illustrates the need to rethink the tired daily routine and redefine our attitudes by learning to awaken the Buddha and the Badass archetypes. The Buddha mindset is the model of the spiritual master and the Badass mindset is the inner changemaker seeking to make a significant impact on improving the lives of others. If readers integrate the critical skill sets of each powerful archetype, they will begin to work from a space of purpose and prosperity and make conscious shifts in the ways they approach work.

Whether you are an entrepreneur growing your own business or striving to strengthen your leadership skills, The Buddha and The Badass will shake up those old belief systems about the common career approach to help readers achieve the ultimate goal of an extraordinary work-life balance.
