Meet the Leaders of Tomorrow

On Friday morning, I read the papers and saw yet another hateful racist, thing that Trump had said (this time about minority congresswomen in the United States and asking them to go back to their home countries) ? ⠀ It was also the final day of Mindvalley University. And, as I got to our campus, I noticed a group of kids who had been meeting regularly in the cafes outside our hub. ⠀ They were part of a group who are being mentored by people in the Mindvalley community to become future leaders, politicians, CEOs, and activists. ⠀ I sat down with them, listened to their ideas and said: ⠀ “Hey, why don't you guys formalize this?”? ⠀ “Why don't you guys start an organization for people around the world who want to take on some of the lower conscious ideas which permeate politics and business?” ⠀ I told them, if you can form this organization in four hours, we'll announce it at our grand closing ceremony at Mindvalley University. ⠀ They jumped at the opportunity, created the vision and presentation and, in four hours, presented it on stage in front of 700 people. ⠀ And Voila - in less than 24 hours they'd raised $1 million ? ⠀ Their new organization is called Humanity Plus (after a word I coined in my book about organizations and businesses that put the planet ahead of profit and whose vision is to beneficially contribute to humanity) ⠀ @Humanity.plus will now be looking at creating a network of the world's top, young activists and looking at grooming the next group of leaders to run the countries of the world ?➕ ⠀ Several of the kids in this picture already doing amazing things, such as developing schools in refugee camps - one is a former Syrian refugee himself. ⠀ Now they are being mentored by billionaires, filmmakers, advertising experts, social media storytelling experts, economists, engineers, and people like me. ⠀ This is the power of Mindvalley University. ⠀ And I'm so excited for the world 15 years from now, when these kids win elections. ⠀

I Am a Refugee, But I'm Not a Criminal

⠀ ⠀ I created this video with a 21 year old Syrian refugee poet named Abdulazez who attended Mindvalley University on a full scholarship. His story touched my heart. And I wanted to give him a voice. ? ⠀ I'm fighting for a world where refugees are no longer outcasts but are seen as fellow humans. ⠀ I’m fighting for a world where any politician who villainize refugees would never get a vote because people have woken up. ⠀ And when you truly grow in consciousness, you can’t help but give a DAMN about the environment, the refugee crisis, the poor. ⠀ Compassion for others beyond your immediate circle is one of the highest forms of consciousness. ⠀ As one grows in awareness and consciousness - you start to open up to one of the biggest lies that we buy into as individual humans… ⠀ ...is that ?? ??? ????????. ⠀ Instead, you start to see that we are cells in a collective entity - humanity. ⠀ And that, as cells of larger whole, we need to cooperate and take care of each other. ⠀ We are so much more deeply connected than what these artificial barriers suggest. ⠀ And when this bubble of lies bursts, you cannot help but look at the world in a different way. ⠀ You resist walls.? You care about climate change.?️ You can no longer work for a business that's polluting the planet.? And you open your heart to the world's 70 million refugees who are homeless.⛺ ⠀ Please share this video if Abdulazez’s message resonates. And follow him at @abdulazez_dukhan to see what happened when a refugee boy is given a chance to live in freedom and escape the camps. ⠀ Please LIKE and Comment Below to help this cause.?
