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.
The first time I posted a blog was 4th November, 2010. I wrote ‘How to smartly choose a career’ because it was one of the questions I was asked, very frequently. No one noticed my first blogpost. With a hurt ego & in desperation, I had to finally call up a few friends & relatives and requested them to please for heaven’s sake have a look. Today after posting hundreds of Blogposts (with some of them even having 2.5 million plus unique views)- I so want to share my secret of ‘ How to start a Blog’ & ‘How to make it very popular’. It is a long post, but I promise you – it contains all that you need to know to ‘How to become a Star Blogger’. Read on…
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. (more…)
Every time I log on to Facebook or Instagram, I am a little saddened by the large amount of insecurities at display. One of the issues that a lot of young people grapple with, and I have been frequently asked about is – body image issues. Body shaming has become a commonly accepted norm these days – and there is no dearth of both – the guilty and the victim. Too many people struggle with overcoming body image issues- height, complexion, nose, hair, proportion, voice and many else. As a motivational speaker, I write this an attempt to steal the thunder from vanity in the name of body shaming because of genetics and bring some real clarity on the real things that really matter.
Recently my newsfeed on Twitter, FB and other places suddenly is full of Modis, Rahuls & Kejris. And it is kind of becoming quite boring. Sick and even obnoxious too at times.
The shocker is that a Punjabi guy who himself is not able to govern even basics elements of his own life has a huge opinion about Governments in Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, India and even USA. And that does not stop here. He then vehemently defends his favorite leader everywhere. Fights around to prove that what he thinks is right. Clear cut problem of erroneous priority settings and hyper-drugged mind about his idol (political party). Lots of free time and mind too. (more…)

Any mention of studying & what makes a good student would be incomplete without this Sanskrit shloka. It means – the five most important qualities that any sincere student needs to possess are: perseverance like a crow (never gives up), concentration of a heron (who catches fish like no one else does), sleeps like a dog (always alert), does not over-eat and does not socialize like a house on fire. It’s a very brief summary of this entire blog post on how to study for long hours with Concentration.
