I AM PRIYANKA
My personal quest has been one of self-sufficient living
Today I encourage you to live without dependency by letting you into my story. I am a private person. To bare my soul’s journey was not an easy decision for me but I do in the hope that it inspires you to begin your path within.
I have led a nomadic childhood in a multicultural journey having lived and studied in around 10 cities and 07 countries in Asia, Europe and Middle East. Along the way, I discovered my first love to be a Luxury Hotelier. With a clear goal at 20 years of age, to join the World’s Best Hospitality Company and work myself up to its world-class and award winning Luxury Brand. The Universe being its friendly self, had my back, and I scaled my mountain peak at 28 years of age. I had to up my game and elevate my conversations with clientele that included CXOs and Vertical Heads across a diaspora of Banking and Financial, Aerospace, Consultancy, FMCG, Pharmaceutical, Infrastructure, Automobile, IT Software and Hardware Industries and Diplomatic Circles.
They say every phase of our lives requires a new you. The reality of this truth was discovered when I decided to trek down from my mountain peak after a little less than a decade with the company. I quit the company to be ‘beyond my business card’. In hindsight, it was an ordained, synchrodestiny nudging me to ‘my purpose in life’
“I did not discover Mind Coaching. It chose me.”
I wish I had a witty charming unforgettable answer to why it did. But the honest truth – hand on heart is that I was destined and meant to become a mind coach. My whole life has been small incremental steps, seredpitious moments nudging me towards transforming and shifting lives as a coach.
In hindsight, I was drawn to Mind Coaching from the start. Our experiences in childhood make us believe in our own versions of right & wrong, good & bad, happy & sad, success & failure. My earliest memory of this was in Grade 3-5 in the American School of Paris, struggling to fit into an environment hostile to the brown-skinned in the 90s. As a young child, I did not understand that racism or bullying is NOT a reflection of me. It is NOT because I am less or I am unworthy. It wasn’t me! However, a 7-8-year-old naïve innocent girl will only own her limitations and accept that the lack was in her. It caused deep-rooted beliefs that manifested in situations, people, and experiences for nearly 02 decades after. Fear of rejection, fear of abandonment, Unworthiness, Neediness, Fear of losing, and not being enough for people. I struggled with this right up to my late 20s cycle after cycle – each time chipping away at me and turning the beliefs into a monster taking me over.
I started discovering triggers for this switch. I am a firm believer in fighting my own battles and I decided one fine day in the year 2007 that I need to make myself self-sufficient mentally and emotionally and discover my sense of self. The contradictions in my life didn’t stop mind you! I just learned to bounce back faster and quicker every time. I slowly started transforming the victim in me into a co-creator of my destiny. Perhaps, if I had asked for help then or met a Mind Coach, it would not take me another decade to reprogram and release those damaging beliefs permanently. I made errors and I made corrections. I repeated my wrong choices and I re-learned from them. All this while I was my own subject of study on whom I applied and reapplied all the tools and techniques and knowledge I was gaining over the years. Till the Universe said I have had enough, I can’t wait any longer, here’s your purpose in life – get working!!
