We bring you the interview with Dr. Abhishek Srivastav, an author, speaker and coach. He is a visionary man with the mission to transform the lives of students and bring a radical shift in their mindsets.
Let's have a look at his story.
- Please give us a brief introduction.
I am Dr. Abhishek Srivastav. I am an Author/ Motivational Speaker/ Student Coach/ Content Writer. I take people from their dreams to destiny. I help and empower people. I make people achieve their goals.
- In a state like Bihar, people want government jobs. What made you become an Author & Motivational Speaker?
While I was suffering terribly with severe depression and suicidal thoughts, I helped myself to overcome this chronic predicament. My painful tragedy and horrifying circumstances pushed me harder to help and transform people. At that very time, I decided to become a Motivational Speaker. As a matter of fact, this idea of becoming a transformational speaker came through my mind the moment I had to face the challenges and calamities of life. I made up my mind that I would help as many people as I could.
- What were your struggles and how did you overcome them?
The list of my struggles is endless. In fact, everybody has a painful story. My case is no different. Life is all about struggles and challenges. It's a roller coaster. Defying the infirmities of life and overcoming all the challenges make us a true man. Sincerely speaking, one of the biggest struggles of my life was that I had a breakup in my life while I was studying in class 12th. It shattered my life deplorably. I found it extremely overwhelming to strike a balance between my personal life and student life. My inner strength actually helped me overcome it. It didn’t stop there. Life continued to throw traumatic experiences one after another. But I stood like a rock & blew all the obstacles away. Mental toughness, physical endurance & grit can really change the game.
- Can you share your achievements?
I personally feel that I am not too big or too great. All I'm trying to do is to contribute to this society by making people realize their true potential and thus enabling them to achieve their goals. As far as my achievements are concerned, I think, let the audience decide it. However, if you ask me to speak about my achievements, I feel happy to share that I represented India in an International Webinar for Bangladesh. There were around 1500 people watching me live and 1200 comments were made from Egypt, Nepal, Philippines, Pakistan, UAE, Bangladesh & India. Secondly, I have been honoured by the Sardar Community in front of the Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Mr. Tarkishore Prasad. I offered my book to him & he encouraged me. On top of that, he congratulated me for writing a book.
- Tell us something about your book.
My book is basically about Scientific Motivation. It talks about time-tested principles of excellence. It teaches us how we can turn adversity into an advantage; a breakdown into a breakthrough; a stumbling block into a stepping stone. The chapters like Mindset, Motivation, Handling Failure, Conquering Fear, Passion, Competition, Leadership etc. offer insightful wisdom. One can get tremendous results if the principles of my book are put into action. Besides, I am also a Columnist/ Content Writer for magazines named Education Now, Corporate Insight & Gurucool Publishing.
