Life Is Made of Millions of Moments.
But There Comes a Moment That Decides the Rest of Our Life.
For Me, It Was the Night My Husband (Now Ex) Kept a Knife at My Throat, Threatening to Kill Me.
I Am Lucky He Changed His Mind.
I wish I did not know how it feels to
be terrified in my own home.
Fear or Courage??
IT LED ME TO GIVE MY
FIRST KEYNOTE SPEECH
TO THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN THIS WORLD.
It was a cold winter's night in Sydney, but it was not a match for the desolation inside me.
I wanted to howl but there were no tears.
I needed a hug, I needed to feel the comforting warmth of a loved one,
I needed to know I still mattered.
But I had no one.
So, I hugged myself tightly, scared to let go.
Finally, in that moment of utter despair, I had a breakthrough.
It felt as if a power within me just surged to the surface and engulfed me.
That power within me had a burning need to express itself.
I took my iPhone and gave myself a talk. A hard, no hold barred talk.
I told myself that 'I' and only 'I' had the power to change my life.
Till date I don't know what made me record it; but I did.
THIS INCIDENT MADE ME REALIZE THE TREMENDOUS POWER OF MY VOICE.
This Talk Had Two Life-Changing Questions for Me.
The first question was
“Have I taken birth to be a statistic?”
My answer was, “NO, I refuse to be “just” a statistic!”
The second was, “If I had died that night, what would have been the value of my life?
My answer was,“the only way we make our life valuable is by adding value to other people’s life.”
My talk transformed my life.
Fear was done playing a part in my life.
I CHOSE COURAGE
I CHOSE COURAGE, GAVE MYSELF A VOICE,
TOOK OWNERSHIP OF MY LIFE.
The moment I took responsibility for my life I moved from a place of weakness to a position of strength.
RESPONSIBILITY PUTS US IN THE POSITION OF LEADERSHIP.
“Leadership is the ability to make up your mind to make a decision and accept full responsibility for that decision.”
Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw
Not everyone can be a Field Marshal but all of us can show leadership by taking responsibility for our life... Good, Bad and Ugly.
I DECIDED THAT IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO BE A LEADER.
I started my new life by creating awareness on Domestic Violence together with the message on courage, confidence and the power of communication. Little did I know that it was the beginning of an amazing journey.
This desire to help, dedicated hard work, and a lot of grace have led to some amazing milestones.
Today, I am an International Keynote Speaker, International Best Selling Author, Personal Leadership and Communication Mentor, Talk Show Host, Humanitarian.
My story of transformation is the inspiration behind my mission to share with others that it is possible to do the same.
I firmly believe that it is possible for everyone to have Inner Courage, Fierce Confidence, Purposeful Communication
These 3C’s empower us in all aspects of our professional and personal life.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE RESOUNDING POWER WITHIN YOU TO TRANSFORM AND RECREATE YOUR LIFE.
