How to Reject REJECTIONS
Rejection hurts — but it doesn't have to hold you back from living your life. The first thing to remember is that there's a reason rejection stings so much. Our need for connection traces way back to ancient history, when humans relied on being in groups to survive. Say 'thank you, next!' to that setback.  Listen to this podcast to understand more on these essential topics: 1) Mantra to handle rejections - SW-SW-SW-SW - Someone will, Someone won’t, So what, Someone's waiting. 2) Prepare your mind in advance for ’NO’! What is not important is what the rejecter is saying, it's what you say to yourself at the time of rejection that matters. Concentrate your energy toward your vision. 3) Our ability to reject rejection is directly proportional to our self esteem - higher the self esteem, easier to reject. Create tools, rituals. Keep a victory log. 4) Go back to your Joy List. Give in to divine surrender. 5) Have the courage to Ask, learn to handle no - if self esteem is high, our ability to ask increases alot. To become successful, Ask Ask Ask. If your willing to Ask, be willing to Give (Pay it forward). Listen till the end for the LIVE Q&A!

Change your Vocabulary, Change your Life!
How you communicate, the choice of words decides whether you change your frequency or remain neutral. The right words spoken in the right way can bring us love, money and respect, while the wrong words—or even the right words spoken in the wrong way — can lead to negative emotions. Listen to this podcast to understand more on these essential topics: 1) Our choice of words decides what life is going to give back to us - Try to swap extremely negative words with milder synonyms. 2) When we describe our negative situations, we tend to make it lengthy. When something good is happening we tend to keep it short. Let's swap this behaviour. Try using 5 sentences for describing something good and 1 sentence for something bad 3) My take on the use of cuss words 4) Vocabulary in Relationships - how we describe people determines our energy towards them. 5) What you continuously say to yourself or “Affirmations", programs your mind and unleashes the power of repetition that lifts your frequency.

How to Handle Toxic People
Does someone in your life continually leave you feeling confused, frustrated, or guilty? If so, you might be dealing with a toxic person.  Listen to this podcast to understand more and learn techniques on how to cope. 1) People can only insult you when you ALLOW them. Accepting this fact is the first step to taking back your power. 2) What reason are you giving yourself when someone lashes out? 'Hurt people hurt people’. What if we shift from Anger to Compassion. Treat them as ‘Disguised Angels’. Try the 'Fountain Technique’ as your armour. 3) People come into our life to INSPIRE or EXPIRE. Every person we encounter, we should assess what lesson they are teaching us. Make your MESS into your MESSAGE. 4) We are surrounded by people who are in a similar energy range as us. When you raise your energy and your vibe changes, those with lesser energy raise themselves to meet yours or they go away from our lives. Our inner world is an extension of our outer world. 5) FORGIVENESS is a decision to be made. Learn the 4 step process of 'LETTING GO' by Hale Dwoskin, Author or The Sedona Method.

How to Communicate so others Listen
Do you often feel ignored when you say something? Maybe you speak up in a group but no one pays attention. Or perhaps every time you try to convey your point, it leads to an argument?

How To Pursue Both Spiritual & Material Growth
Our mind through conditioning loves to compartmentalize and then to make sense of it, it loves to compare. We come up with evidences to support what we think is better or lesser. The classic example in the Indian context is choosing a field of study in school - Science versus Commerce.  Our early conditioning taught us to believe that science equates to smarter, when in reality we know that this is not the case. In this podcast, I go deep into how spirituality and material growth are two sides of the same coin, one without the other is incomplete. 1) Spiritual Growth versus Material Growth: Context Setting 2) Spirituality versus Money - Which one to focus on? 3) Money becomes the energy of the person - Good People do Good Things with their Money and the reverse is true 3) SDDR - Super Duper Damn Rich!
