“Learn from the past. Live in the moment. Believe in the future”
10 years back on a bright sunny day of the recession year, I landed my first job. After a series of technical, HR and stress interviews, I should have jumped out of joy to make it to the top 10% who landed a job in an MNC from the campus. But I felt I could have done better…
1 year into the sales job, I got promoted with incentives and bonuses. I bought my first car with it, my heart should have swelled with pride, but I felt I could have done more…
2nd year my hard work paid off and was selected as one among the top 5% of outstanding performers, but I felt there was something missing..
I craved for fast-track growth. A logical conclusion was to enroll in a management program. Like most millennials, I believed an engineering degree and masters in business from a top B-school would land me all that I wanted in the world. I put my heart and soul into it and landed a lucrative job as I wanted. I enjoyed the job security and work-life balance for a while but my itchy feet kept wanting for more.
Soon I discovered that a well-done appraisal cycle neither a double-digit salary hike nor a fast-track promotion could settle my mind. I felt I was capable of achieving something bigger and greater.
Motherhood came along, constantly trying to raise the bar of parenting, trying to be the perfect wife and pressurizing myself to overachieve at work, all left me overwhelmed. The outlet was in the form of putting pen to paper, I started writing blogs. The blog became quite popular as I chose to pick anecdotes from daily life. Readers found it relatable.

Friends, acquaintances and the virtual family of readers started asking me about simple tips to solve their complex life problems. I was never good at giving advice, also what worked for me might not work for anyone else. Was there a different way to help people simplify life? Was there a way to settle my unsettled mind and find out what was missing in my life? Coaching changed the way I approached life. It gave me a greater purpose in life. Coaching influenced me so much in a positive way that I decided to quit my corporate job and be a coach for good.
I took my professional training from Coach Transformation Academy. With an international accreditation in life coaching, enthusiasm to follow my passion and excitement to work with high potential individuals realize their dreams, here I embark on a journey of self-fulfilling life.
I still feel the need to do more, do better and go higher. The difference is now I know what I’m aiming for. I know my priorities and only focus on what really matters. It took me a decade to reach this state of mind. I wish I had discovered coaching much earlier in my career.
What would you like to become in the next 10 years? Seems like a long time to go. Why should you start now? Dreamers dream and plan, while achievers go ahead and do something about it. They invest in themselves in terms of time, money and energy and slowly build their way to success. Think big, think long term and start acting now.
If you are in a confused state where you want to achieve a gazillion number to things and can’t seem to focus and prioritize; if you want to work on yourself for greater success and happiness and ultimately winning; I might be the right coach for you. It is okay if you have no clue about what needs to be done and how to go about it, we can do it together. All you need to have is accountability to achieve goals and commitment to success and an attitude to win.
