How India Transformed Me

Bob Miglani

Bestselling Author of Embrace the Chaos & Motivational Speaker, Ex-Corporate Executive, Grew up running the family Dairy Queen, Advisor to CEOs, Leaders on Change & Growth

I was stuck. I felt uncertain, worried and stressed. About my job, my corporate career, about an ever changing life and an unpredictable future.

With so much change at work and in my life, I found myself unable to move forward because every option in front of me looked worse than the other.

As I was slipping down this spiral of anxiety and self doubt, a friend asked me to accompany him on his first trip to India.

To help a friend, I said yes to go to India.

Even though I was born in India (grew up in the US) and been there many times, this trip was different.

And so began my transformation.

India changed me. India will change you.

India is the capital of chaos. With 1.2 Billion people, you can’t help but feel overwhelmed driving on the roads, going to a meeting, shopping for groceries or trying to catch a bus. But in a sea of chaos –somehow things get done. People continue to move forward despite the chaos, living meaningful and happy lives.

What’s their secret? I learned and wrote about this secret in my Washington Post Bestselling Book: They “Embrace the Chaos”. They continue moving forward despite the uncertainty. That’s the nature of life in its essence: To keep the wheel of life always moving forward. Towards achievement of your passion, attaining success, fulfillment and happiness.

India a wonderful classroom for personal transformation and growth. The place has a way to destroy every story you have running in your head revealing to you a truth that you cannot escape. A truth which will set you free.

Free to let go. Free to change. Free of fear. Free to try something new. Free to discover your true self. Free to move forward. To find greater success in your career or business and more meaning and joy in your life.

EMBRACE THE CHAOS

How India Taught Me to Stop Overthinking and Start Living

Published by
Berrett-Koehler

India is full of chaos. Yet things get done and people move forward to live a life of meaning, success, contribution and happiness.

During this week long program, we will spend time outdoors and some time indoors. Walking about, learning, meeting people, seeing how people in India -live, love, work and play. And understanding the way we interpret things that happen to us in our own life.

We will spend time in two or three different cities. From seeing the mass chaos in the city of Mumbai to traveling on a quieter road to visit a 3rdgeneration guru in the country side to understanding foods that give us more energy to learning how we can calm our mind to awakening our true self, this program is unlike any other you will ever experience. It is part ‘walk about’ and part ‘talk about’ –balancing time indoors and outdoors –so that we can see, experience, learn, understand, change and grow.

Ultimately, this journey is yours and what Bob does is to help you with your journey of growth and transformation.

If you can embrace the chaos in India –then you can embrace the chaos of your life anywhere!

Your Mentor for this Journey

Change Mentor & Bestselling Author –Bob Miglani

I am not a tour guide.

I am an inner guide. Helping your inner journey of growth and transformation

I help you get unstuck and move forward to find success and meaning in your life using India’s chaos as a classroom.

I was born in India and moved to the U.S. at the age of 9 with my family and $75 in our pocket and a desire to pursue the American dream. Growing up I delivered newspapers, mowed lawns and helped my family run our Dairy Queen store in a small town in New Jersey.

I worked in corporate America for Pfizer Inc. in NYC for 23 years in many different roles and left in 2016 to pursue a different path.

My book, Embrace the Chaos, is about my journey of learning to move forward in times of change and uncertainty and is the basis for this Personal Transformation travel experience program to India.

I have worked in India for years and have taken business people including CEOs, entrepreneurs and friends throughout the country

I work and live in a small town outside of New York City writing, doing motivational speaking and helping leaders and companies to Change, Transform and Grow.

Bob introduced me to India taking me there a number of times. I learned so much. Met incredible people. Had amazing experiences that have changed my life for the better.

Bob is an incredible person who helped in my journey not only to India but in my life.”

Your Hero’s Journey Begins Now

I developed this program in India based on my personal experience of traveling to 30+ countries in my corporate career and what I learned from great teachers like Joseph Campbell. Travel can be a powerful teacher

Joseph Campbell , was an American Psychologist and researcher who studied cultures from around the world and discovered a common pattern among the hero myths from these cultures. He called it ”The Hero’s Journey” which captured the stages of personal change of the hero archetype.

From George Lucas who created Star Wars to the Wachowski Brothers who created the Matrix series Campbell’s work has influenced so many great stories of reinvention, transformation and change seen in central characters in movies and books.

For me, the Hero’s Journey is a process of personal transformation that begins by saying YES to an invitation to Travel outside of your comfort zone. Saying YES to travel and fully experience something different.

If we want to transform and become better at our own journey in life, we must heed the call to adventure.

This is a transformational travel experience.

And it is your time to say YES!
