In October 2012 he moved back to India. During this time he intensified his journey on self quest and research on ways and methodologies for personal excellence. He turned to meditation and NLP, and studied ‘The Silva Method’, a popular mindfulness program developed by Jose Silva and did his NLP certification program . Inspired with the impact of NLP in his personal research on human potential development and human behavioral science he decided to scale up his experiential learning with NLP, Consciousness Development & Conversational Intelligence. He had already begun coaching individual clients through one to one coaching exercises from the time when he was resident in Singapore. After returning to India, he started working on himself extensively. To deal with the stress at the workplace and in personal life within the personal development & relationship realm based on the challenges faced by him and his clients, he made up his mind to equip himself & to all those affected at large. He designed his signature program – Awaken the Incredible Within. His target focus is people with serious coping needs in their life and career to succeed with such challenges that he also faced experientially during normal span of his career in India & abroad. His primary objective was then to empower & enable the awareness of people to etch a life with a sense of equanimity and to attain success with fulfillment. While designing the program, and as to what it can do to its participants, it gave him the inspiration and motivation to make the program available to public and corporate at large. He wanted to reach larger audience in a shortest possible time frame. This is when he met the CEO of Adhyyan Publication, New Delhi and concept for the book ‘Awaken the Incredible – Incredible Is the New Giant’ was born to meet his objective of reaching wider audience within a shorter time frame.
