What if everything we think we know about how the world works— our ideas of love, education, spirituality, work, happiness and love — are based on Brules (Bullshit Rules)that get passed from generation to generation and are long past their expiration date?
This book teaches you to think like some of the greatest non-conformist minds of our era, to question, challenge, hack and create new rules for YOUR life so you can define success on your own terms.
The Code of the Extraordinary Mind is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is mostly decided not by rational choice – but instead by conditioning and habit. And thus, most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything – love, work, money, parenting, sex, health and more—which they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.
But what if you could remove these outdated ideas and start anew? What would your life look like if you could forget the rules of the past, and redefine what happiness, purpose and success mean for you?
Unraveling the Code Behind What Makes an Extraordinary Individual

This is Not a Personal Growth Book, it’s a Personal Disruption Book
