Who am I? I ask myself again, who am I? I am... Divinity, part of divinity, an actor on a stage called Earth... a small atom evolving through various stages...

Last few years, I had many answers and each insight made me feel lighter. Today, I woke up to a new thought, timelessness! There is no concept of past or future and hence no concept of time except for the convenience to operate in this world.

I was so attached to stories and experiences; I forgot that they were simply events for my evolution. I kept going back making myself right and re-living the hurt to validate my thinking. And from thereon, the mind kept building images and conclusions for life ahead.

Recently, I was becoming more aware of the implication of such thinking. This was feeding my need for significance. And to feed it further, I kept pushing the Universe to affirm, acknowledge, change for my happiness. Did it work, absolutely not!

So what exactly is significant? Just the moment we are living in now. A river flows and merges into the ocean, it knows its destination and it does not get attached to the path. Our significance is determined by how we act and whom we impact, as we stay committed to our destination. Living our best and doing our best in that moment shapes the next moment and hence, shapes life.

It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped - Tony Robbins

...having Ashu as your coach is a God send. Because, Ashu's primary focus is not limited to addressing the immediate areas of concern but to transform you inside out. She helps you (if you let her) discover and reinforce your own core beliefs, values and approaches. Her approach is to focus on you such that you can grow across all dimensions, making you capable of reaching the "here" seamlessly… and empowering you to reach the future "theres" as well!

Ashu has worked as a coach with my team on a few occasions to help improve teamwork and team dynamics. Working with a group of type A investment bankers can be pretty tough. Ashu was able to draw out the team to share their views openly in a constructive manner.

Coaching Promotes Agility

I have always had a perception of being an agile person. Like all, I get stuck but that feeling of being stuck makes me uncomfortable and propels me to look for solutions. This self-created image exerted an expectation and the pressure had driven me to a writers’ block.
