Are you someone who has often grappled with the question – ‘What am I good at?’ or rather wondered, ‘Am I good at anything at all!’; then this blogpost on ‘How to find your passion’ is for you. And if you are one of those lucky souls who have always known what to do with their lives, I am sure you know ample people who are still struggling. Pass it on to them.
Year 2015 was probably one of the heaviest years for me about my work-travel. I did some 100+ Events that year across India & Asia. One September evening, when I was totally zonked & bored with daily flights I decided to have some fun. I held a contest on my Social Media: Motivate the Motivational Speaker. My believers had to try and motivate me. Some people did surprise me with their originality & creativity in their point of views. Few of them became friends & they manage to inspire me even today during conversations. My work as a Motivational Speaker for Corporate Events & Youth in the last 18+ yrs has had the influence of some of the most brilliant, top Motivational Speakers in the world. Their content, their stories, and their style of communication – it all just makes me a fanboy!
I have always been an ardent fan of the word ‘courage’. There is something about being brave that makes you feel ‘wow’. Doesn’t it? A confession:- I am a fallible human first & then a motivational speaker. I go on stage every now and then talking of courage to an auditorium full of people. But honestly, I have my own mind-issues about me not feeling courageous at a lot of other places and aspects in my life!. But then – this isn’t my story. This blog is about some exceptional real life stories of courage; courage of all kinds. And what are those kinds, one may ask! I think courage comes in all shapes and sizes. Read More
Before you begin reading this, I have a confession to make. I may have indulged in some overthinking before writing this article. I always do, for all my blog posts. And then I fight it. So that’s what this blogpost is about: How to Stop Overthinking & finding ways that actually work. Because let’s face it – sending the brain on a hyperactive overdrive in the wrong direction never helped anyone.
‘How to meditate, increase mindfulness & find God’ is not my Blog or writing. My intellect is too small to even begin to answer this most profound question like the saints who walked this country did. They gave to this world the real meaning of spirituality and the precise understanding of mindfulness, who is God and how to find God through meditation. This blog is their message, their words, their writing. I feel immensely blessed to be their very small instrument as I amplify their message further. This blog is also my very personal spiritual story: the story of my learning on the most beautiful road of spirituality (Not religion). This blog is long but a comprehensive guide to the above question (I promise). You will need 2-3 readings to fully absorb everything that’s written here. So, be slow and thorough to get the most out of it.
I realize that normally when anyone is made to hear or bear a motivational speaker- it can run the risk of becoming too much of an unwanted ‘Gyaan’. The reason why I promise my people ‘No Gyaan, Zero Yawn ! Events’. Self- Help that actually works. Not just the ‘WHAT TO’ Dos of life. But the ‘HOW TOs’ as well.
Just a few years into my work as a Motivational Speaker; I clearly realized that ‘Being funny is a serious Business’. In the last 18 yrs- humor, sarcasm & story telling have helped me help my audience in more incisive ways than I had initially imagined. But it is much more than cracking stupid, cliched jokes. It requires fearlessness, spontaneity, crystal understanding of audience’s emotional competencies and much more. I am 18+ now in my work. So, censor issues (which I had initially) too have been taken care of 🙂
