I’ve always thought that my life is blessed and the blessings I receive are the successes. Be it small or big, I define the success by the sense of accomplishments and satisfaction I feel. Be it the brightened eyes of people who I train in my success seminars, mind power training or be it the people taking decisions themselves after every NLP session, I find that my success is getting shape. (Please note that my life’s success is still getting a shape) I mean, I would say that I am still on my path towards, where I find successes on the way. Today I am going to tell you my story, the story of how I found this pathway of success. Before entering our world of thoughts, I want you to tell you, readers that this is no autobiography. I’m just here to tell how I defined my thoughts to get what I have today.
In India and many other countries, a successful life would mean a safe place to live, fat pay cheque at the end of the month, a family picnic every year and formal style of living against a certain but monotonous future. I was born amidst families with the similar mindset. We define success by the way our parents fed us, and later what kind of thoughts we feed our children. No where I have found discussions centering on the man’s success which had his complete involvement of heart and mind! I have always seen people compromising on things, but an innate quality inside me had always directed me to Dream Big. I always dreamt of a great place where I live and a desired job where I could make others enlightened.
It was a usual way of living I’d adapted till I joined Bharat Petroleum, my last assignment as an employee. I still had the fire inside me and I was sure it wouldn’t diminish due to the fuel I had given it since my childhood. (But later I found that the fire needn’t be there for many years, but can be brought in by small exercises, which I call TPR – Though Process Re-engineering. This I say, in this instance, for readers who may think that success is never possible without preparations from childhood. The truth is, it is possible anytime)
They say, opportunities knock the door only once. But I’ve found from my experiences that the nature finds numerous ways to knock the door and it does knock. But we seldom hear them. It was one fine day, when I had my thoughts aligned in a manner my fire inside will be fueled, I heard the knock. Amway – the business as exciting as I wanted, got into my way. What I found great in this business was the power of networks involved in it. What fascinated me more was the Life Changing Education and Training associated with this business. My dream of making others enlightened was very much possible here. I found this was it. And I started my way.
On my way of creating successes in Amway and other businesses in Hospitality and Business Consulting, my experiences taught me to define my thoughts in a way that it helps me to be clear. Clarity as one great value that my little work on thoughts did! A small exercise leaped huge benefits to me. I’m glad that I chose what my heart wanted. I found my success in every little thing I did and I rowed my boat in the similar direction and here I am today, delivering motivational messages and being a success coach and mentor to several people. This was possible because of the confidence that the pathway instilled in me.
That same confidence made me to diversify into other businesses. I own a lovely Nature Resort, Nature Zone, in the misty Munnar in Kerala, having beautiful Tree Houses and Safari Tents. I further expanded my interest in hospitality by starting a Village Resort, Wayanad Nature Resorts and also by buying the Heritage Hotel, Napier House in Fort Cochin. My passion to see success in others made me to start Bramma Learning Systems Pvt Ltd, which is primarily into Business Consulting and Specialised HR Trainings.
Quick summary of how I created the pathway:
* I kept dreaming and searching
* I found the right career by relating my dreams to the outputs that the career will offer
* I took experiences in a positive manner
* I defined my thoughts and I redesigned them
* I imagined myself to be an achiever and in few days, it happened
* Last but not the least, I shared what I learnt.
