“I was bitten by a radioactive spider” is how this fun interview with John Hargrave starts, a joke about how he developed his system of “Mind Hacks.” But the truth is that a terrifying visit from the Secret Service jolted him into realizing his life had to change.
In this funny and fascinating talk, John shares his transformation from addiction and almost losing his family to finding a systematic way to keep himself positive, peaceful, and living in the moment.
John describes mind hacking as getting “out of our mind” and looking objectively at the “negative loops” going on in our heads. Then we can decide how to “hack” that bad programming and reprogram our minds for good.
