Decisions shape destiny.
I strongly believe in this statement. Today I am sharing three decisions that are shaping my destiny. One of them is starting this blog, www.awesomeaj.com, which is now changing many lives all over the globe.
Today, I am not just sharing my story; I am going to share the stories of two more successful bloggers. And how they are living their dreams.
At the end of this post, I have shared a video that you couldn’t miss.
Last week, I got an invitation from Ahmed, one of the organizers of the Shout Meet in Hyderabad. He said, “Ajay, we want you to become one of our speakers and share your blogging journey.”
I said yes.
Of course, blogging isn’t something I have ever spoken of. My topics are motivation, inspiration, the law of attraction, the subconscious mind, and success strategy. I can talk about these topics for days and weeks. But I am the kind of person who is always ready to take on an unknown adventure. And that way, I didn’t give it a second thought and said yes.
I went to the event and spoke about my blogging journey. I spoke about ‘how blogging has changed my life and the lives of many people around.’
In the Shout Meet, I met Harsh Agarwal and Pallavi Ruhail, and today I am sharing their success story too.
If you are thinking, ‘What is Shout Meet?’ Then here is your answer:
Shout Meet – A Blogging Community Development Initiative by Harsh Agrawal
Shout Meet is an initiative started by my good friend and one of India’s most successful bloggers, Harsh Agrawal. It’s a pan-India blogger meet he was organizing in one month while taking a road trip all over the country.
Harsh is an expert blogger and sharing his knowledge and learning with people for years through his blog. Now he has taken this journey all over India along with Sharat Nik to meet as many bloggers as he can and share his knowledge.
This was the best platform he has created for professional bloggers, beginners, and even wannabe bloggers. In the Shout Meet, the audience gets a chance to learn about blogging and to network with fellow bloggers in their city.
You can read more updates on Shout Meet on Harsh’s blog.
Here I am sharing success stories that I have witnessed.
Harsh Agrawal: Massive Success as A Professional Blogger
Harsh is a professional blogger, and he writes about blogging and SEO on his blog, ShoutMeLoud. He is the pioneer in this space and doing it for more than 6 years.
Harsh has become a legendary figure in the blogging space, known as one of the top bloggers around the world and the most successful blogger in India.
After completing his engineering degree in 2008, he worked in a call centre for some time. And when he was about to join Accenture as a software engineer, he got caught up with his passion for blogging. Once he started blogging, he got hooked on it. He never joined the company and started his journey to build his empire. He built a company of his own in the blogging space.
Now, after more than six years of his journey, he is living a successful life as a blogger and his boss. He regularly gets featured on most of the national newspapers and TV channels. Most importantly, he is living the life of his dreams.
He is a very good friend of mine and what I admire the most is his spirit of taking the road less traveled. And the Universe rewarded him with the name, fame, and fortune. But above all the happiness that he has created for himself is indispensable.

Pallavi Ruhail – Success Story of a Fashion Blogger
I met Pallavi at Shout Meet, Hyderabad. And her story is super interesting. She is a qualified Doctor and even she was practicing as one. But it’s her passion for Fashion that has changed her journey forever. And she never looked back after that.
Pallavi is now a very successful fashion blogger and writes her blog, That Delhi Girl. She runs her blog like a celebrity, and she has tons of brand endorsements.
She shared a lot of insight on brand endorsement, getting sponsorship, and using social media for growth at the Shout Meet.
If you are interested in fashion, then head over to her blog, www.thatdelhigirl.com, and you will love it.
Ahmed and Mohammed: The Successful Start-Up Brothers
Ahmed and Mohammed Kaludi are brothers destined for success. They are running a WordPress Theme Company, MAGAZINE 3 here in Hyderabad.
I met them for the first time at this event and was inspired by their dedication and energy. They were organizing the Shout Meet event in Hyderabad, and their dedication to building this community was amazing.
I got super inspired by their journey so far and the plans ahead. They jumped into entrepreneurship even before finishing college and now they are completely immersed in it. They are highly passionate about their work and creating amazingly beautiful WordPress themes.
If you ever look for a WordPress theme then look no further than their beautifully crafted MAGAZINE 3.
And finally here is my Story:
Awesome AJ – My Story of Being An Inspirational Writer, Blogger & Mentor
Most of you are familiar with my journey, and you must have read my post when I completed 2 years of writing this inspirational blog. But well, there is always more to share.
When I got this invitation to speak at the ShoutMeet as a successful blogger, I knew that I was not going to talk about SEO or anything technical. Because all these belong to Harsh. He is the expert in it.
I decided to share my journey, and I wanted to tell the audience ‘how your decision and mindset are most important for any success’.
It’s the decisions that we make that change our lives. Our decision shapes our business and life, in the same way decisions create a major impact on blogging.
I have a gift for you: I got a recording of my speech at the Shout Meet. Thanks to my brother Sanjay, who was there at the event and recorded the whole speech.
Here is my ‘Three Decisions that are Shaping My Destiny – Speech at the ShoutMeet Bloggers Event
Subscribe to my YouTube Channel, I will be sharing more videos in the days to come.
I believe the success stories of Harsh, Pallavi, Ahmed, and Mohammed have inspired you.
I believe my speech has made a difference in your journey. Though in the speech I talked about blogging, it’s more about the decisions we made and following our dreams.
Like in blogging, no matter who you want to be and what you want to follow in life, you need to make decisions. And once you make the decisions you have to follow them with faith and motivation.
Once you follow your dreams, the whole universe makes the perfect arrangement for you.
Tons of gratitude to Harsh for taking this pan-India journey and building this blogger community.
Gratitude to Ahmed and Mohammed from Magazine 3 for arranging this event and for inviting me as a speaker.
And special thanks to my brother Sanjaya for being at the event and capturing my whole speech so that I could share it with you.
Do comment if this post and my video have inspired you. And do share with others too.
Decision Shapes Destiny.
