How to Go from Uncertainty to Conviction and Learning to Find Your Purpose with Ikigai [Limitless MD, Episode 112]

LMD, Vikram Raya, Podcast Doctor, Real Estate, Investing, Millionaire

Fail quickly, fail early, fail often, fail forward. That’s the secret. To be successful, you have to act and make mistakes. But the truth is that putting your skin in the game will help you gain traction and confidence. First, to move in a specific direction, you must create your own Ikigai. In this episode, I guide one of my coaching clients towards reframing negative thoughts and creating his own Ikigai to prevent analysis paralysis and start implementing changes. 


These are some of the topics covered in the session:   

  • Mindset shifts are a competitive advantage
  • How to be a contrarian optimist
  • Believe about 80 % of all the material you consume
  • Take your level of action to 10X 
  • Listen to your intuition and don’t question it
  • Meditate on your Ikigai to find your true purpose 


Even though all these topics are explicitly connected with my client’s life, I’m convinced you will find them valuable and easy to adopt. You don’t want to miss this episode. So lock in, take notes and experience some of my behind-the-scenes coaching sessions. 


Stop being pissed off and use it as a stepping stone to do what you wanna do.” – Dr. Vikram Raya
