I hear screams.
People shout at the top of their voices.
I don’t feel anything.
Someone tries to pick me up.
Put a hand around my shoulder.
I can’t see anything properly.
I can’t hear anything clearly.
I am semiconscious.
I open my eyes.
I see bright lights of vehicles.
I see people running in front of those lights.
I look down at my leg.
I see a pool of blood.
I lose consciousness.
One part self-help, one part autobiography: the book ‘WHAT NEXT?’ is an invitation for you to journey with me through the incidents that turned my world upside down and the strategies I applied to overcome them. It is not a book on magical makeovers so much as it is a book that offers tried and tested techniques that can magically reprogram and transform the mindset.
Written in a light conversational style so that you connect with the events in the book, my hope for this book is that you experience the lightness of being that comes when one can see a light at the end of a dark tunnel.
I served in the Indian Navy for 17 years. By professional qualification, I am an Engineer and Oracle-certified professional. I am also a Certified Executive Power Coach and an NLP Practitioner. Post my Navy days, I have set up three start-ups, and am an International Trainer who trains people across different countries.
In the year 1998, I met with a major road accident that landed me in the hospital where I stayed for two years. WHAT NEXT? highlights the learnings and takeaways from this and several other incidents that upended my life every time I thought I had turned a corner.
The book is like my life: humorous, gut-wrenching, relatable, and motivating, all at once.
