Learn the Art of Happiness and Excellence With Raja Talking Life.

Happiness & Excellence Mentor, Speaker and Author.

Choose Better.. Be Happy..

Why Happiness?

Happiness starts on the inside and it is in your control. You can create the right conditions to be happy now rather than waiting for something outside yourself to make you happy.

Why Excellence?

Striving for personal excellence allows you to improve in every aspect of your life no matter what the situation is. It is a journey of self-growth and development that will produce happiness.

My Journey with Happiness and Excellence.

I spent most of my life unhappy due to external forces that made me feel miserable, anxious, and fearful. My escape was work and study and I excelled in both areas where I achieved high levels of success and financial gains. Despite being successful by all standards on the outside, I felt there was something missing on the inside. I was sad, stressed out, anxious, worried, and stopped enjoying spending time with my children and friends. That was the time when I had to dig deep and go on an internal journey to find what happiness and excellence meant to me.

Today, I view excellence as not being my best at all times definitely not being driven by external factors. Excellence is about doing better every day even when I did not get it right in the past and according to my own internal standards. Now, happiness means that I feel joy and contentment on the inside by taking control of my own little world rather than by giving my power away to external factors that determines how I feel and live my life. Happiness is subjective but what I know for a fact is that it is in you, it is the key to success, and that you can experience it at the present time if you are willing to go on this internal journey.

Why Mentor with me?

I was dealt the cards of dysfunctional family dynamics, tough marriages, instability, mental health challenges, career changes, and even lack of finances. I know what it takes to overcome these hardships and be successful at it.

As your mentor I will provide you with tools, strategies, knowledge, and expertise that will allow you to surpass your challenges and limitations, work with your strengths to achieve your goals and materialize your vision, find clarity during confusing times, expand your horizon to new levels of awareness, and more importantly find calmness during difficult times. If you are ready to move forward and take the next step on your life journey, then I would be honored to be your mentor.

Call me today to start your happiness and excellence mentoring journey.

Is Happiness and Excellence Mentoring for ME?

Happiness and Excellence mentoring is for me if I want:

  • Support to maintain every aspect of my wellbeing
  • To find clarity during difficult times
  • Help making difficult decisions when I am confused
  • To exceed my limits and reach my next level of success
  • To build happy, meaningful, long lasting relationships in my life
  • Support in learning parenting and family relationships skills
  • To change my career but I am fearful of taking that step
  • Assistance in adapting new life skills and strategies to deal with uncertainty
  • Success at the personal level to achieve my goals and my vision
  • To cultivate mindfulness and acquire stress management tools
  • Experience positive emotions and heal from negative experiences

What is The Process Like?

Excellence Mentoring is development driven which focuses on your own personal and professional growth; hence, it is self-driven and is dependent on you and your readiness to take the next step. Sessions will be scheduled either on a weekly basis or a monthly basis based on your needs and your ability to put in place the tools and strategies discussed during the mentoring sessions. During critical times, you may find that you need extra support which we can discuss and mutually agree upon. Please keep in mind that self-development and self-growth takes time and you can achieve your goals when you are in the right place, in the right time and with the right mentor.

About Me

I get you. I understand what you are going through. I have been there, done that. As a former Clinical Director of a transplant laboratory and an Assistant Professor, a mother of two and a wife, I dealt with extreme amount of stress that threw me out of balance and harmony. At the peak of a successful professional life and financial security I found myself crumbling on the inside. All of a sudden, my life turned upside down and took many detours on my journey to personal happiness and excellence. As a student of life, an avid learner, and a seeker of happiness, I encountered multiple mentors on my endeavour who played an instrumental role in moving me one step closer to happiness, excellence, and expanding my awareness to higher levels of consciousness.

On this adventure, I had many breakthroughs and much more collapses, I fell down numerous times but I got up every single time, and I experienced healing like never before at so many levels of my being. Above all I learned resilience, patience, perseverance and to remain optimistic and hopeful to continue fighting and see the light within so I can be the best version of myself. This is my wish for you. I would like to share my knowledge and experience with you so you can transcend limitations and overcome challenges so you can be the best version of yourself and be happy.

I invite you to learn more about how you can be happy and achieve excellence by reading my blogs, and purchasing my books Shift to Shine, Make Up Don’t Break Up, and pre-order a copy of my upcoming book Happy Now. I look forward to hearing from you even if it was just to say hello or share your experiences with me.
