It's time to take charge of your life.
Perhaps, you think you would take charge if only life was a smidgen easier.
Well, it certainly can be. You can be a powerhouse in your own right. This book aims to inspire you to embrace life, and shift everything around you by changing yourself into somebody who lovingly prioritises yourself and your desires.
And there’s the rub, perhaps. Are you ready to take responsibility for your own world?
Are you ready to accept that it isn’t your boss’ responsibility, nor your lover’s, nor your mom’s?
This life is all you, every little bit of it you. And it may be easier than you imagined.
Inspiring You Into Better
It’s time to recognise what tickles your heart. And honour it.
You are a one-of-a-kind human, and your life path is as unique to you as every one else’s is to them. Nobody is capable of living your life for you, which means that you alone have to take responsibility for your destiny.
This is a book about taking ownership of your own life. It’s a book about making up rules that serve you. It’s a book about redefining purpose. It’s a book about being in control of your inner world. It’s a book about being kind. It’s a book about being accepting, about acknowledging and allowing the diverse range of humanity, who share your world and create life with you, to be as free and loved as you want for yourself.
By the end, you will still be you, but you will also be more pro-you. You will understand why it is so important to believe in yourself even if nobody else does. You will have an inkling of how much of a starring role you play in your own life. And you will have access to simple tools that will help you reconnect with the part of you that is more confident and empowered and self-reliant.
Maybe you’re aware of the vast array of choices you have in your life. Maybe you grasp how powerful you actually are. Perhaps, you will absorb the insights presented within these pages and allow yourself to be reminded that your story can play out in pretty much the way you want it to. Whatever you get out of this book is directly proportionate to how much of an active role you play in your life’s decision making and how many of those decisions are made for your own greater good.
Because you really have a lot more say in your life than you might give yourself credit for. From the moment you open your eyes, you can actively decide how you will spend each moment. You get to decide who you spend your time with, how you spend that time, and what you get out of said time. And the only reason you might not realise this is because most of your decisions are made out of unconscious habit, and because you’ve handed over much of your time and power to other people to manage. People like your bosses, your spouses, your parents.
Make more of your daily decisions a little more deliberately. By applying just a little bit of effort, and paying a little more attention, every day, you will take back the steering wheel, and learn to mould your life, piece by piece, bit by bit, step by step, into a wondrous adventure that benefits and pleases you more than it frustrates.
My name is Hindi, meaning “Victory of Light” and I’m pretty much dedicated to living up to it, and helping you bring out your own inner light.
I didn’t come from privileged stock, brought up in an Indian-only settlement in a segregated country, but my parents worked damn hard to get me well educated and establish a meaningful existence. Aspiring to be an author since the age of six, I spent the majority of my decades collating data, testing the waters of life, stumbling, falling, and building the experience that would eventually, decades later, fuel the words you will read in this book.
Today, I am an actor, an author, and an adventurer, enticing and influencing my greater world to dance and prance along with me. A firm advocate of every person’s rights to be fully and flamboyantly themselves, I share in this book, the wisdoms discovered through my own challenges, confident that you can learn to live better from my missteps.
We will journey together on a path of self-discovery, identifying where you want to be, and steadily building the mindset, the confidence, the perspectives, and uncovering the steps to take you there. I’m not gonna lie; buttons are probably going to be pushed and you’re may wanna kick me in the ‘nads from the get go, because change (of your outer world) doesn’t come without change (of your inner world). It’s time to put on your big-person panties (if underwear is your thing) and make life your bitch-ass bestie.
