Abhishek Shukla Author – Interview Questions
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am a Speaker, Author, Political Consultant, Trainer, Counsellor, and Advisor. However, i considered all these designations just a tag what truly defines me is I am a learner who is blessed to have mentors who have always inspired me to learn and share the learning’s to help people in need.
I always believe that learning is a never-ending process. Every day new things are learned through Seminars, Books, Experience, Friends, Internet, Media and many other means. But the question is how many of us; really put that learning into practice in order to check its worthiness. Many of us are either fully engaged with work or we are occupied with some personal stuff.
One more important reason is that we forget what we learned in just 2-3 days. Hence, when we actually want to implement the learning we don’t know what to implement as we have already forgotten the material.
But, the fact is, we cannot compromise on learning. We have to take time somehow to work on the learning; otherwise, we are giving no value for the TIME we spent on learning new things.
“As rightly said, TIME is PRECIOUS, so also LEARNING”
To overcome this problem, I tried to give a new dimension to the training process. My training programs are designed giving importance to TIME and also to Individual’s work & personal life. All the training programs I conduct are clubbed with Interesting Facts & Fun.
I have maintained my conviction that the mind, body, and spirit are integrated and uniquely important in every person’s life.
I am also very active in providing outreach and educational resources for schools and colleges.
I have come to learn that healthy relationships are the key to a healthy, satisfied individual. My work centers on working with people to help them build healthy, supportive relationships in their lives.
What genres do you write?
Um, let’s see, counting on fingers, eyes toes warily, Five. So far.
Obviously, some answers will be, “just one,” and that’s certainly understandable. I never really thought about genres when writing. As for me, it’s proper to say my output is an eclectic mix. I get so much enjoyment from writing about many diverse subjects. I love a good story and believe that a good story and great characters can exist in any genre. When it comes to writing I don’t write for sake of it, I write about practical lessons of life I learn every day. Every person is a teacher and has a story it depends on us what we take out from that story. Every person has a huge volume of talent and experiences it’s just we need to collect and present it to others.
