The Treasure Hunt: The Physics of Success with Rizwan Virk
How much of success – in life and in business – do we owe to knowledge, expertise, or acumen and how much of it is to do with something less tangible like déjà vu, dreams, paying attention to synchronicities, signs, symbols, and bodily sensations, or even a good old fashioned hunch? Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin empire, is reported to have said that he relies far more on gut instinct than researching huge amounts of statistics. And he’s not alone: numerous entrepreneurs and CEO’s of some of the largest corporations in the world have confessed to relying heavily on their hunches when making critical business decisions.
Best-selling author, Stanford/MIT grad and Silicon Valley entrepreneur, Rizwan Virk firmly believes that there is a science to success and a physics to manifestation. “What’s more,” he says, “we all have a treasure map inside us that not only shows us the work we’re meant to do, but also shows us the path to take to get there.
This week, Rizwan Virk joins Sandie to discuss his new book, Treasure Hunt: Follow Your Inner Clues to Find True Success, which uses quantum physics to explain how hidden messages, in the form of hunches, gut feelings, déjà vu, and dreams can help us with important daily decisions, including those related to business and investments.
And he will share details of how you can take part in a real-life treasure hunt competition which can earn you $20,000 and first class business mentoring from one of the brightest minds in Silicon Valley.
