Welcome to the Good Life: The Blueprint

Life is good – and here are a few things to introduce into yours, if you don’t agree, or need a ‘boost’….

  1. Drink Coconut water everyday – stay hydrated
  2. Eat whole foods everyday – stay healthy – follow the Four Pillars of Healthy Eating’ 
  3. Do Hot Yoga – and become a teacher like my housemate @YogaShirley!!
  4. Travel – and share your experiences
  5. Banish negativity from your Facebook – and yes – un-friend/un-follow!
  6. Read – all the time!
  7. Love family, friends and strangers alike
  8. And a personal one for career progression, that’s worked for me and my friends – learn ‘‘ and learn about the ‘Internet of things’ (iot) – this ‘Salesforce for Dummies‘ book may help get you there
  9. Smile as often as you can!
  10. Finally, my favourite: Get yourself a Ganesh NOW – to remind you daily that YOU have the power to remove any obstacles in life

Welcome to the Good Life!

My story:

I was fortunate to experience a few milestones which helped me along the way, which may not be relevant to everyone, but got me to where I am today – a happy place…..

I studied Engineering and Software Development at the University of Central Lancashire, UK.

I then moved to London, ended up working for a UK Startup – ‘GlobalExpense’, where I was able to implement a CRM for all aspects of business management – from Customer Support, Account Management, Invoice/Billing Management and Automation, QA and beyond – a fantastic opportunity – Item 9 on my list. We were later acquired by Concur Technologies, who are an incredibly innovative company with immense talent and foresight into the world of Business Travel. Prior to that acquisition, I had only traveled abroad 4 times in my life, but in the last few years, I have had the opportunity to travel to some wonderful places and experience differences in culture which opened my eyes and made me appreciate the world we live in, and everything in it – item 4 on my list. (Side Note: The fact that the owner is Indian made my mother very happy, and settled her heart – I’m 35 and unmarried -well past my ‘sell-by date’ – rebellious in an Indian culture!!!)

During my time in London, I was lucky enough to live with a good good friend, who having been a Dance Teacher, had 2 hip operations, lost one career, and had to ‘transform/pivot’  – she discovered Hot Yoga, and recently became a qualified Yoga instructor with Fierce Grace, taught by the first lady of Hot Yoga in Europe – Michele Pernetta – this helped me with points 1,2 and 3 on the list above – probably the most influential and positive items.

‘I Have a Dream’

I’ll finish with this: Several years ago, I really did have a dream, which I will summarize as follows:

If only all the children in the world could grow up with the belief that they all possess the power and ability to remove any obstacles presented to them in life.

Being of Indian origin, I thought – ‘we have something for that’ – Ganesh. A few conversations with my brother resulted in the creation of a new type of  ‘teddy bear’ – one that EVERY child should have regardless of cast, creed or religion – but being a workaholic, I was immersed in the world of Business (and travel), so my brother followed through, created that very ‘teddy bear’ – and today, I am so proud at what we were able to achieve – There’s still lots to do, and lots more teddies to come, but we need your help and support to get there: If you got this far, I thank you, but I urge you to please go one step further: get yours now, and help make this a reality – and free up some space in my loft!!…. Namaste!

Removing your Obstacles in 2013

New Year’s Resolutions.

Most will want to give up something, others will want to try something new, overcome fears, get a promotion at work…… however, very few of us will really track our resolutions throughout the year, unless we have constant reminders of what we had set out to achieve…..

You need something that you can look at everyday, to….

  • give you the strength to remove the obstacles that are preventing you from succeeding,
  • inspire you to put that ‘extra bit of effort’ in,
  • give you the strength to push aside the barriers to fulfilling your objectives and resolutions,
  • give you the perseverance to keep going, no matter what comes in your way,
  • give you the courage to start-up that business you’ve always dreamed of,
  • help you find the money for that life-changing training course you’ve always wanted to do,
  • give you the drive to write/publish that book/film…

You need Ganesh – The Remover of Obstacles.

How I do it:

I know Ganesh to be the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ in Hindu Folklore – I remember this fact every time I see Ganesh. All I need is a ‘trigger’ to look at Ganesh everyday. Let’s choose ‘waking up’ to be that trigger – after all – I do that every day!!

So – every morning when I wake up, one of the first things I see is Ganesh. I make a point of looking at Ganesh over on my chest of drawers, as I sit up in my bed, shortly after turning off my alarm. That’s it. There is nothing more to it. Really. And it changed my life. How? Here comes the ‘science’ bit…….

Seeing Ganesh triggers a wave of thoughts about my life, dreams, aspirations, targets, goals, and what I think are ‘obstacles’ to success for these many thoughts and ideas I have. This brings ‘self awareness’ of one’s weaknesses and obstacles <;<;<;<; THIS IS THE GOLD DUST. All I have to do now is write down these obstacles, and start crossing them off the list as I overcome each one. Once I get to the bottom of the list (if I don't keep adding to it!), I will inadvertently have overcome the obstacles that were preventing success for my own personal goals/dreams/aspirations!!! Achieving them simply becomes a 'choice', unrestricted by 'obstacles'.

It's kind of like having goals, but not going after the goals – go after the obstacles, and the goals will eventually rack-up!

Apart from the fact that there's a great opportunity for someone to create an 'app' to deliver the above 'life goal tracker', I hope you're able to find inspiration in the above – and if you think Ganesh will help you achieve your dreams, head on over to
