I announced in my 14th Jan blog post I will be taking a break in 2022 , it is almost one month , let me share how it’s been.
The agenda of my break was ‘Agenda-less Contribution’ . Give , Give , Give my gifts.
Don’t sell , don’t chase , go with the flow.
What comes , comes , what I don’t like , stop doing , let go.
Lot of my readers asked me to keep sharing how it goes , only a few were convinced I will stick , I too had my apprehensions .
Here is what happened.
1. Let go of fear ; When I get into states of anxiety again , the survival mode , I observe , and let go of Fear .
I remind myself, what is there to be afraid of , I have been taken care of till now , will be taken care of in the future.
A trust returns.
In the process I have been able to be more honest and speak my mind freely. Follow my heart.
The tussle continues, I observe when anxiety returns, let go and get back to the fearless state.
It’s slowly getting into auto pilot.
2. Business is flowing ; this is contradictory, I have not reached out but I have added new clients and some great ones .
I am not pitching or selling any longer I operate from let me see what can I give , how can I contribute without an agenda .
My expectation is not about getting the order but about genuine care and can I contribute my gifts.
And I am absolutely ok not getting the business, but it has come nevertheless.
I am ok with that too.
3. I have let go : One client who was with us wanted to pause . I just blessed and was happy to let go.
That client is now a friend for life.
And immediately another set of new clients stepped in , without any effort !
This was so amazing to observe, I had no stress in letting go and it created space for something new to emerge.
As if the universe was working on a plan.
4. Getting out of comfort zones : I had been pushing this for long , but somehow I got the energy to finish and my second book is ready to publish.
The 1% Club , is based on my experience of having worked with business and social sector leaders closely and coaching founders for over 30 years now.
This again is flowing from agenda-less contribution .
As if the universe is guiding me to a plan.
I have begun building Story Culture a community of storytellers in business. Again the idea is contributing my gifts as a storyteller with as many as I can.
(You can join the community on http://www.storyculture.in )
What is the biggest shift ?
I feel more free now than I ever did .
The burden of the past and the future has been dropped.
The stress of reaching somewhere is gone.
The stress of holding on is gone .
The anxiety of what will happen ‘if’ , is observed when it comes and let go.
I continue to party and have fun, cycle and enjoy life.
It’s just the first month of agenda less contribution. I can say that the big take away till now is as follows.

It’s a fun journey, going with the flow for now.
