Story of An Inspirational Blog: Awesome AJ
It was March 2013, and I was working happily with Accenture as a Management Consultant in Gurgaon. I had a very successful career and working on a job that is a dream job for many people.
While I was working on this successful career, deep down I was listening to the voice within my soul. The voice was telling me “This is the time to share your learnings and gifts of the Universe with more people.”
What’s the value of your success and experience if you can not share it others so that they can achieve their success?
I had this dream of becoming an inspirational writer and a mentor who will help people in living their dreams. Moreover, the voice within me was telling me again and again that the time is NOW.
So many people wait for the perfect timing and perfect opportunities, but there is no perfect timing to follow your dreams, there is only one perfect timing and that time in NOW.
In March 2013 I have decided that I have to start my inspirational blog to share my learning and experiences with people. I have no idea who will read it or how many people will get benefited from my inspirational blog. I just knew if one person gets inspired, even one person gets his direction to move one step ahead on his journey reading my work then my purpose will be fulfilled.
The days were full of inner conversations and every moment like the Universe was whispering in my ear “Ajay, you are not choosing this path, the path has chosen you.”
It was very early in life I knew that someday I will become an inspirational writer and life coach to help other dreamers in living their dreams. However, I never knew when that SOMEDAY will come.
Though I was doing it for years- helping, guiding and mentoring friends, acquaintances, and even strangers whenever someone seeks my help. I was doing this from senior high-school and college days all through my professional career.
Whatever I was doing, I was doing with passion. Because I always believe that all of us are meant to be happy and successful. Moreover, when I see people sad or depressed or hopeless, I was eager to help them with whatever I can. Most of the time, when I share my story it helped them understand their life. When I told them how my life has changed and how I was able to overcome challenges, it filled them with high motivation to overcome their own.
During all these years, I was passionately helping, guiding and supporting people in living their dreams aside building my career and life. As the years move ahead, the number of people stumbling upon me was growing, and my understanding of the universe was also getting deeper and deeper.
As a result, the motivation and inspiration were touching the sky, I was witnessing more life changing stories in front of me. Also, I was achieving success easily and experiencing happiness effortlessly.
When you start following your passion, the universe starts talking to you. You started getting signs that it wants you to be on the journey, and that is when everything seems perfectly arranged for you.
By March 2013, the journey has reached a level where I was working every single minute after my office hours in helping, guiding and mentoring people. I was doing with utmost joy and passion. I knew that this was my passion and mission in life.
It is during this time the Universe started whispering to me “Ajay; you must take it to then next level now. There are much more people around the globe seeking a dose of inspiration. There are people who are looking for someone who can share his or her story in the simplest form. There are more people looking for something to read that will give them a hope to follow their dreams. Moreover, you can do it. The time is NOW.”
Till then I knew the best way to inspire people with your writing is by publishing a book. Yes, there is nothing powerful than a book. Of course, it is my dream to publish a book and inspire more people.
However, publishing a book is a journey in itself, and it takes time. So the Universe again started talking “Yes! Ajay book is the best medium, and we will publish much more but what about now. You must start something now to send your gift to the people around. Everyone has a gift but most people keep waiting for the perfect time, and most of them never use it. I do not want you to wait for long. I want you to use it now.”
That is the moment I have decided to start this inspirational blog.
Even few close friends advise me that inspirational blogging is a very long and slow process, better you write your book and publish it. However, I chose to listen to the Universe over others.
I knew that the book would get published for sure but what about the people looking for a dose of inspiration now. I knew it this is the beginning of my passion and mission in the right direction.
That was March 2013, and my management consulting job was at its peak. If you work with world’s leading consulting firm means you have to deliver high performance at work. Moreover, I have made something clear very early in my life that whatever I will do, I will give my best.
So there was no point of diverting my attention from work to the blog during the day time. But I had learned that when you have a passion, you will find all the resource and energy to make it happened.
All through the March month, I used to work at the office from 9 AM until 7 PM and then come back home, get fresh up, and I start working on my blog from 8 PM till 3 AM. The schedule continued every day from 8 PM to 3 AM researching on how to start a blog and what all resources needed.
All day I worked at the office and all night on the blog and finally on 1st April 2013, I registered the blog www.awesomeaj.com, and that is the beginning of this journey of awesomeness.
Whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you want something, it is because that desire originated in the soul of the Universe. It is your mission on earth.
To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation. All things are one. When you want something; all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
These famous quotes from my most favourite book “THE ALCHEMIST” talks about finding our mission on earth.
When we have our mission and work on it with an utmost passion, the whole universe conspires in helping us to achieve it.
I found my purpose and I am working passionately on my mission to help and inspire more and more people around the globe.
When you take your leap of faith, the universe made such arrangement for you that your journey becomes much more magical every passing day. I must tell you taking the leap of faith is only difficult, not the journey ahead.
When I was working all through the month from 8 PM to 3 AM to start this blog, I never consider that as hard-work because that was not hard work that was my passion. Those are the moments when my mind, body, and soul were in complete alignment with the universe and that when I was finding my bliss.
When you find your joy, it stays with you forever because there is nothing greater than this. The passion only grew with every passing day of this 730 days of writing the inspirational blog.
In return for the leap of faith, I took on 1st April 2013 I got much more love from people around the globe. I never knew I will get so much love in such a small span of time. Now I know people from almost all the countries on earth.
Every day I received tons of emails and messages of love and gratitude for people from all walks of life irrespective of their age, sex, religion, and countries.
Immense gratitude to each one you for all the love you have showered upon me.
This universe connects everyone on the same journey of life.

A Message to You
If you have dreams then you must follow it. If you have found your passion, go for it. If you are yet to find it, keep looking and don’t settle.
Living your dreams will require dedication, practice, and there will be moments of ups and downs but keep going and don’t stop.
There will be moments of challenges but above all remember that “You have GREATNESS within you.”
Never stop, never go back from your journey and never think that you are less than anyone.
Greatness is not something people born with; they create it with their passion, dedication, and faith in themselves.
I know the day will come when you will be a star shining in the sky and the world will proud of you. Till then keep going and don’t settle.
Time for you to maximise your devotion and unleash your greatness. Start feeling more, start doing more and start going more on your journey because the whole Universe is waiting for you.
No matter what may come, I am always with you to take you across every obstacle. I am always with you to give you the direction every time you find yourself on a cross road.
I am always with you even if no one believes in you because I can see Greatness within you.
We are living in a magical universe where the universe is always working on our dreams because it is not only our dreams, but it is the universe’s dream.
