The Latest Secret to Achieving All Your Dreams

No, I can’t do it, it’s not my cup of tea”, I said with a sense of despair as I kept the phone down. As I cut the phone, I heard Deepak saying “Yes! you can”, I got further irritated. Deepak wanted me to run the 10K marathon next month. My own words were pinching me but that was the truth. I had never ran in past 20 years since I left college and my best efforts in past two days left me completely huffing and puffing before I reached even two Kilometers. Finally, my decision gave me a big relief. I changed the alarm from 5:00 am to 7:00 am and slept off.

The doorbell woke me up at 5:30 am, Deepak was at the door in his jogging dress. I was really annoyed seeing him and told him that I’m just not made for running but he seemed to be more confident about me and he once again said “Yes! you can”. So, we went to the park and he did his 12 KM over the next two hours while I exercised deep breathing after my limit of two KMs. On our way back I told him that 10K is out of question for me, not in a month and not ever. He asked me the reason but I had no proper answer. It’s just something I had never done before. “Do you want to do it?” he asked me in a serious tone. “Yes, I would love to but you see I can’t” I replied with full confidence.

“Yes! you can!” He said once again

“But how? can’t you see that my limit is only a couple of Kilometers” I said in a helpless tone.

“I know exactly how you are feeling right now because two years back, I also felt the same way as my limit was exactly 2 KMs, just like yours. However, I found out a secret and you see, now I run 20 KMs with ease and preparing for a full Marathon, I can see myself at the finish line already” Deepak said as he closed his eyes, visualizing his future. I also automatically closed my eyes and I smiled as I visualized myself at the finish line of 10K, the image was so amazing that I captured it in my memories.

As my eyes opened, I was interested in knowing his secret and if I can also use it. After all, it’s not a good sign to give up at 2 KMs at the age of 4. He said that he will tell me the secret after 15 days but for now, I have to believe that if he can do it, I can do it too. “Tomorrow we take rest and I will see you at the park on the day after at 5:30 in the morning” Deepak said as he left me thinking.

With a new belief and an amazing image in my mind, I worked hard over the next 15 days and even forgot to ask the secret as I completed 6 KMs and later on successfully completed the 10K next month with a few cramps. I ran 20K after another 6 months relatively easily and that evening I told Deepak that I want to run full marathon next year and he said “No, You can’t” and this time it was me who said “Yes! I can” and we both giggled with a high five followed by Cheers.

The most amazing thing happened. While I did this, I started getting better at everything in my life, not only physically but even mentally and in every possible area that I could think of.  My performance peaked at work, I created new benchmarks in sales and I made new friends.

If someone has done it, I can too” This empowering thought changed the meaning of my life as I found myself IN THE ZONE of achievement. Life had suddenly become awesome and I was feeling Powerful, very powerful indeed.

I had discovered a new secret formula of success that brought me in this ZONE OF ACHIEVEMENT. Later, I researched and realized that same is the formula of success of all the achievers. The formula is very simple and scientific and it started worked in my favor on a daily basis. Whatever I think in my mind, my body supports it completely while my every physical action further compliments my achievement mindset. I completely stopped saying or even thinking about “I can’t”. That’s where the magic really happened, In the Zone of Achievement, my conscious mind stopped recognizing the word failure while my subconscious mind tells me only one thing “Yes! You Can” while a strong image suggested as if I have done it before.

I realized that my sub-conscious mind has been re-wired to success and re-programmed to replace “No! I can’t” to “Yes! I can” The magic has started from within and now I have all the resources I ever need to succeed within me.

Sometimes, you can discover these amazing powers within yourself while some people need a Deepak – a coach to unleash their powers.

Unedited Introduction of Welcome To You20.0

Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work ~ A P J Abdul Kalam

At what exact point in your life do you stop dreaming and start living a default life? For most people, this point comes as soon as their childhood ends and the realities of life kick in. It is my dream to inspire and encourage people at any stage in life to achieve their biggest dreams through this book. Here’s an inspiring story to start with.

I know of a gentleman, who was preparing to deliver a lecture at the Indian Institute of Management about leaving a legacy at the age of 83. The students were looking forward to hear his amazing story. As he prepared his speech about the important legacy called leaving a liveable earth, his entire life had flashed in front of his eyes.

Born in 1931 in a small town of Tamil Nadu, India, he grew up supplementing the meagre family income by selling newspapers. However, he never stopped dreaming and upgrading himself. His dreams, hard work and passion helped him earn the Bharat Ratna – the highest civilian award of India in 1997. The United Nations honoured him by recognizing his 79th birthday as “World Students day” and twice, in his 70s, he was nominated for the “MTV Youth Icon“. Could that be your life story too? With countless more achievements under his belt, he smiled as he walked to the podium because he never stopped growing and offering his services to the country. However, 5 minutes into the lecture, he collapsed, never to breathe again.

The 11th President and the missile man of India, A P J Abdul Kalam, died content, living his dream on 27th July, 2015. Though he never married, the entire world mourned his death. He realized the dreams that many people wouldn’t even dare to envision. He once said “Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work“. The real challenges come when people stop dreaming because they doubt the universe. In reality, they doubt themselves.

Do you deserve a life as accomplished and inspiring as APJ Abdul Kalam? When was your last significant upgrade? I’ve written this book because I’m perplexed. It is because I see people settling down too early, making compromises and cooking up daily excuses for not achieving their dreams. When you compromise on your dreams, you not only miss a self-upgrade, but also become guilty of not fulfilling your responsibility of contributing to the world. Why should world pay the price because of your complacency?

Have you ever sacrificed your own dreams for your family or other reasons? When will you become upset because you are not living a life of your own dreams? Do you even know what your dream is? Maybe you were so consumed managing the chores that you completely stopped dreaming. Maybe you tried a couple of times, failed in past and then gave up on your dreams. If it has happened to you, you are normal. This happens to most people. However, it’s not mandatory that everyone should go through the same regrets.

An important aspect of a happy life is in rising above the ordinary and becoming that extra ordinary. When you follow your big dreams, you end up creating your own best version. Humans are the only species that has the ability to dream big and achieve the same. When you go for it, you not only make a difference to the world but also get upgraded to your own higher versions. The version I call as You20.0 (you may read it as you twenty dot O). Why 20? The reason is inside the book.

This book will help you to make a difference by discovering and achieving a higher self. One of my favourite parts of this book is the proven process of finding your best version. The process may look funny but it works. I have conducted many workshops on this process and the results have been amazing.

If you are not clear about your dream, this book might just be your best resource of finding your purpose and achieving it through a step-by-step guided process. It’s not just another book; it’s your blueprint to success. If you are already clear about your big dream, this book has all the tools and techniques to help you in making those dreams come true. This book is full of practical wisdom to help you realize your dreams using many useful secrets and mantras for everyday excellence.

Read this book with an open mind. It is written to help you design and achieve the vision of your life. It begins with the basics and goes into the advanced principles of success in a simple language. Some of your limiting beliefs will be shattered, while a lot of secrets, specific to your needs, will be uncovered. You will also discover yourself in a way that you have never done before – it is that exciting!

What is stopping you from pursuing your dreams today? Is it fear of rejection or challenges related to time and money? Do you doubt your own competence or is something else stopping you? This book will take you through a thought-provoking journey and help you overcome some of your deepest fears and challenges. Finally, you reach You20.0, your highest version. You will become invincible.

A thorough research, workshops, learning from personal experiences and various interviews have gone into writing this book while still keeping it simple and relevant to fit you. This book will open your eyes to many modern as well as traditional tools to help you rise to your best. The principles discussed in this book have already been applied by some of the most successful people. There is no reason as to why they will not work for you.

The Secret Behind the Greatness of the Great

There is something special about secrets; they give you the edge. When was the last time someone confided in you? How did it feel? Didn’t you feel privileged? There are many secrets in this book that will add direct value to your life. Your success depends upon how best you use them.

One of the most common questions that greatest people face is “What is the secret of your success?” They are generous enough to share their own secrets. Not only the secret; they even share the detailed steps taken by them while using these secrets. They share it because they know that success lies in sharing the secret. However, some common people still don’t get it.

Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success.

~ Henry Ford

Have you heard about the famous secret Law of Attraction? Some secrets are meant to be very public. Thousands of books have been written on this subject. Millions of people have immensely benefitted from this secret Law of Attraction. It’s important for you to understand this secret before we move further. The secret is fundamental to your success, whether you know it or not.

You are the magnet and you attract anything you want in your life without any exceptions. You can be anything – even have or accomplish anything you desire– by adopting the Law of Attraction.

A life-changing secret has now been revealed to you at the beginning of the book. However, it will work only for those who believe 100 percent in it. Think about everything that you have achieved in your life so far. It has happened due to the Law of Attraction –a proven one that really works. This book, however, goes beyond the Law of Attraction and provides you with everything you need for dreaming big and achieving it.

Are You Ready for the Click?

The secret of your success is out.

You can do, become or have whatever you wish. The universe is ready to receive your commands. However, it’s very important for you to know exactly what you wish for.

One size does not fit all. You need the secret that is designed particularly for you. The laws of success are not different, though their degree of relevance may change from person to person.

Your success secret is embedded somewhere in this book. There will be a moment while reading this book when you will get The Click. You need to look for the signals with an open mind. Relax, it will come to you. It doesn’t matter if, right now, you don’t even know what you are looking for. The next few chapters will help you figure that out. When your purpose is clear, the right references will find you.

Are you wondering, “How will I know when the click happens?” It’s the same question that people have about finding love in their life. “What signals will I get? Will I hear the music? Will I have sleepless nights?”

Similarly, you may have a question, “Which page and which line number will give me the click?”

If you have all these questions, it’s okay. Trust the book and keep yourself in a receiving mode. Don’t block the signals because of your ego or a know-it-all attitude. You need to read and follow every word of the book. Your click is embedded in there. If you want to, even re-read the book – Some things are worth reading a second or even multiple times. When you hold a book, you can easily pause, rewind or even underline what makes sense to you. Sometimes, the voice of your heart is all you need to hear.

Some sections of the book might look like an exercise, they are intentional. Don’t skip them, everyone hates workout but that’s what gets you in shape. Some ideas might look repetitive; these are strategically placed to enter your subconscious mind. Some of the hard-hitting concepts have been described using you as the subject. Don’t feel offended – the idea is to make you feel like a participant rather than thinking it’s for someone else.

I hope…

Finally, I hope that you will enjoy reading this book while it adds value to your own life and the life of others through you. Throughout the book, you will find many real life stories and fables to emphasize certain points.

I hope, one day, writers will share your stories in their books. You have met so many personalities in life and you have been inspired by many great people. You have welcomed all of them into your life. Won’t it be great when, one day, your own best version knocks the door and you open it and say, Welcome to Me20.0?

The journey begins. Good luck.

Every employee is selling, are you missing this secret?

Last week, I met Harry (name changed), a business prospect working in a reputed IT MNC and he asked me what, “What product do you sell?” He seemed very passionate about the product and we both agreed that the product is the center of any business. Eventually, the customer pays the price for the value delivered by the product.

One thing led to another and harry shared with me that he was very frustrated with his job, though it’s a high paying job but he did not feel motivated at all, he was not getting his due recognition also at office. Part of the conversation went like this:

Me: “What Product do you sell?”

Harry: (almost laughing at my ignorance) “As I told you, my company sells the product, I’m just a software professional

Me: “Why does the company pay you salary?

Harry: (after some thought) “Because I deliver Value to them

Me: “That means you are the product, isn’t it?

Harry: (now irritated) “You can say that I guess

Me: “That means you sell your value and your customer; I mean your employer pays for it and if you are frustrated at work, you are not able to deliver the expected value

Harry felt offended though he did not express it to me but the meeting got over without much further discussion. However, a new theory was taking shape in my mind. I did some research (means Google) and here I am, connecting the dots.

Price is what you pay and value is what you get. Gone are the days when getting a job meant you are settled in life for good. Now-a-days, every employee is a product that is meant to deliver appropriate value to his employer. If you deliver more than expected value and you are a good salesman of your own product (yourself), you may keep raising the price. On the other hand, if you are not delivering appropriate value, your employer may stop using you and if the same attitude continues, you will soon be jobless. Also, your product (skill) needs to stay relevant to the current needs of the employers. Sometimes, people become outdated because they are not upgrading themselves and they wonder why they are not selling (read jobless) anymore.

However, being a good product alone is not good enough. You also need to sell yourself well. Sometimes, the employers fail to recognize your value due to policies, volumes or office politics. In such case, you must be able to showcase your work and your worth. If you are not good at it, don’t blame the eco-system, it’s unfortunate but it’s true these days. There is no need to undersell but if you are doing so, it’s almost your own fault.

Joey Gerard, a Chevrolet car salesman sold 13001 cars in 15 years. How did he do it? He believed that he sold himself before selling the car. According to him, he was the first product and then the car came. All car salesmen had the same physical product but if one is selling more cars than 100 others put together, it happened because he understood that he has to sell himself first, for that, he has to be good and also believe in self. That’s the same way how Sundar Pichai or Satya Nadella reached top positions in Google and Microsoft.

Have you always wondered why some people are getting paid a lot more than what you think is their value? You may keep thinking that they are lucky or playing politics but the fact is that they are delivering a great value and they know how to sell the best product in the world – “themselves”. Product Performance is always recognized but if it is combined with a good sales and negotiation pitch, it can derive much more value.

Carrying a product mindset for self is the secret of personal success in corporate life. When you deliver great value as a product, your employer gets much higher value and willing to pay any price for you. Remember, employment is temporary but if you carry good value, you have no dearth of opportunities. You will be indispensable and also in demand.

You will do great if you are conscious about delivering great value considering yourself a product. At the end of each month, think, what value did I deliver? Am I getting paid more or less for the value I am delivering? Whether you are a software professional, a businessman, a doctor, a policeman, a teacher, politician, a parent or a home maker; you must deliver the value considering yourself a product. You are the primary product before the physical product (car, school, electronics etc.) comes.

You are the best product ever created. Do you believe in it and are you ready to sell it? Do it and you will be on your way to your best version. #WelcomeToYou20

5 Reasons Why Welcome To You20.0 is Unique and important for Dreamers like You?

While I was jogging along the park last week, an elderly person stopped me and asked “Are you the same person who wrote the you are welcome book?” I nodded in affirmation while I was smiling inside as someone unknown recognized me because of my work for the first time. Also, people find my book’s name quite confusing. Anyhow, this gentleman was a little more interested and after a little conversation, he asked me, “What is the USP of your book, why should I buy it?” I answered him to his and my own satisfaction and we moved on.

However, I decided to write this article about the USP of my book for everyone’s benefit. This book can make you Rich and famous. It has a lot of wisdom, stories, secrets, fables, quotes and most importantly a structured flow that will help you to achieve your biggest dreams. Most of the other self-help books also have it.

Whether you have a big dream or you want to start your entrepreneurship journey, if your aspirations are lofty, be ready for facing rejections, ridicule and even mockery by most people. In fact, most dreamers don’t even start or wind up too soon because of the rejection they receive from the first few person they talk to. Unfortunately, these are the people the trust the most.

When you join a job, everyone congratulates you and there is even an induction or welcome session. However, that doesn’t happen when you are on your dream journey. You are on your own and you may need to do the most basic and mundane activities yourself.

Once, you have the clarity of what’s stopping you from being your best version, the best version itself will follow.

The Story: Your dreams Vs taxes

I know of these three close friends, Prem the Professor, Mehul the Merchant and Fahad the Factory owner in their early thirties in 1991. I was only 17 years then in a small town of UP called Saharanpur, a regular small Indian city where not paying taxes was the default culture.

Mr. Prem was a very hard working Maths professor from the local college. He also used to take coaching classes for engineering aspirants charging 200-400 INR per student. I remember his passion for teaching and helping his students clear the competitive exams. His great mentoring ensured me a rank in IIT, I will forever be indebted to him for that.

Everyone looked up-to him and believed in everything he said. He wished the best facilities for students in college but there were no funds with the college for even a good library. There was another problem, he never paid taxes on the income that he made through tuition. This income was 3-5 times more than his handsome government college salary.

Mehul on the other hand was a cloth Merchant, a very hard working and honest businessman and an idealist, his business was also running very good. However, he was very different from most people in the town. He could have easily avoided taxes like most people around him did but he believed in paying his dues to the government. He lived a peaceful life of big dreams to grow his business very big he was but mostly short of money.

Fahad had a factory on the outskirts of the town. Everyone did business with him, he worked day and night to serve the entire city. Many local workers were dependent upon his business and he used to take good care of them. The only time he would get upset was when his transport faced challenges due to bad roads or when the new flyover fell due to poor construction material. He wanted to open a very big factory but he couldn’t do so because he was not declaring his income to the government in order to avoid taxes for the past 10 years.

25 years later, Prem the professor could never upgrade his visible lifestyle because he wanted to avoid taxes, he has crores in cash but never bought a car. Now, he is running around with 500 and 1000 INR notes. His kids, settled in USA are not bothered about his problems. In fact they lecture him about paying taxes. He has crores of rupees rotting at home while the college library is still waiting for a few lakh of taxpayer’s money. However, he is still looking for ways to convert his old notes into new. He still fails to see anything wrong in his this desire to avoid taxes. He represents the normal Indian who sees nothing wrong in avoiding taxes. He might be sent to jail one day.

Mehul the Merchant managed to secure loans based on his tax returns to expand his business. He worked extremely hard and now has several big showrooms across India and he is inaugurating his 50th store outside India. His name is taken among the biggest businessman in the world. Few lakh families are now employed by his business, he is a celebrity, a fearless high flyer.

Fahad the Factory owner has no factories now. His factory was burnt several years back but he had no insurance protection. He once had a rough argument with a police officer over not paying enough bribes, who raided his house along with tax authorities to take revenge. He was caught with a lot of cash. That cash never reached the government as the policeman and income tax officer managed to consume it between themselves. That money could have been used to build those roads, his factory or flyovers.

Fahad the Factory owner and Prem the Professor are not bad people. In fact, they could have been living legends today, living their dreams but their attitude of not paying taxes to government is not only depriving the country of a better infrastructure, education, sanitation and facilities etc, it is also an impediment in their own growth. They are now stuck. They represent Millions of Indians who make a profit of over 3 Lakh INR per year but don’t pay taxes. Finally, the whole country is run by less than 1% Indians who pay taxes and even a lesser number who pay proper taxes among them.

India’s attitude of not paying taxes is not only slowing down its growth, it is also slowing down individual growth and people live in fear. Come on India – Let’s pay taxes and live happily with a great country and a clear conscience. When you pay your dues, you can fly like a fearless dreamer.
