Onwards – the journey has finally begun!

They say journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step – but it is this first step that probably is the most hardest, full of confusion and doubt, emotionally overwhelming, mentally challenging and the fear of uncertainties. Isn’t that the human nature though – it does not matter what you want to start these are the type of emotions and mental dialogues we all go through. When it comes to ourselves, our confidence somewhere seems to get shaky and then we try to postpone it for the next day. Trust me, I was no different. Even though I come from marketing & communications background, it took me sometime to finally get on my journey.

If you want something bad enough, there is nothing that can stop you. The funny thing is the universe will carve the path for you. All you have to do is to be in the mindset and when it comes to you, just grab it and run. One such person I met at a social gathering at a friend’s place when a very faint sign showed up. The words of the person just grabbed my attention and I was the only person in the room who took the pain to write down some of the things mentioned by him. I went back home, researched, but it fell on the bay side as the time had not come yet. The second time I got a chance to meet the person at their home and it felt as if floodgates had opened. They say – the proof is in the pudding. I got a chance to hear and see what meticulous planning is and how with just proper planning with a purpose you can shape your life.

The words of encouragement kept ringing in my ears as I drove away from the house and something inside me started churning. A desire that I always had suddenly did not seem like just a desire but had translated into a definiteness of purpose. A desire to write a book had suddenly gained its strength and momentum and I did not waste anytime. Within a week from that meeting, I had already written my preface, the title chapters and what I wanted my book to do.

I know this is just the start and there is a lot to do and i am excited for it. If you are like me, sitting on a fence, look for that person who can bring out that deep desire into action and start your journey. Time is now, so let’s get it done.
