The Life School is an initiative to spread the art of living, loving, and giving in the society we live in – via stories, interviews, and workshops for kids and adults. It’s an initiative from someone who wants to share his experiences in living an amazing life with someone who wants to live it – whether as a child, parent, or just a human being.
Broadly, the vision of The Life School is to help people re-learn the art of being thankful, dream big, and to never give up.
The Life School is the brainchild of Vishal Khandelwal, a storyteller who believes in minimalism and the importance of giving back. He has set his foot on the journey of finding simplicity in the daily chaos of life and create things that are amazing.
Vishal spends 75% of waking time reading, writing, and playing with his kids. He earns his living by teaching people how to become sensible with their money.
There are three people who have inspired the origin of The Life School.
One of them is the legendary Steve Jobs, who spoke this at his famous Stanford University speech in 2005…
Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
The second inspiration comes from Nick Vujicic, the man who has no arms, no legs, yet no worries.
The third inspiration for The Life School are the amazing people around us who are living their lives as if it was their last day on earth – giving, loving, and inspiring others to get a life.
As Steve Jobs says, you’ve got just one life so there is no reason not to follow your heart.
So start living, loving, and inspiring. Start being the amazing you. Just do it! The world needs it!
