Note: I’m writing a note of gratitude on the blog each day in November leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday. My hope is that these posts will inspire you to do the same. Write an email, Facebook post, or a text to tell people they have made an impact on you. Gratitude is contagious.
Earlier this week, I wrote about how one conversation can have a tremendous impact on your life. Today’s post is dedicated to another conversation and individual who had a major impact on me.
A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to meet and spend some time with Rajkumari Neogy.
From the first moment we met, I was captivated by Rajkumari’s honesty and authenticity. It was clear that this was a person of depth and wisdom.
Among the things that Rajkumari does is coaching. During our first one-on-one conversation, she stopped me at one point and asked if it was okay if she shifted into coaching mode for a bit. As someone hungry for development, I welcomed it.
Over the course of the next 30 minutes or so, I was confronted with some pretty powerful insights about how my mindset and language were holding me back in some pretty significant ways. I also learned about how a few key relationships in my life were influencing me in ways I wasn’t aware of.
This one conversation set me down a path that has helped me drop some invisible, psychological baggage that I’d been carrying for a very long time.
Every conversation with Rajkumari leaves me a better, smarter person. When you take a minute to scroll around her website, you’ll quickly see what I mean. If you need someone to help you or your team to breakthrough, reach out and engage with Rajkumari. You will be blown away.
Rajkumari, thank you for giving me the gift of insight. Your kind investment of coaching and care in me has made an impact that will be lifelong. I’m so grateful to know you and I look forward to learning from and with you in the future.
