5 tips for success

Hi all,

For today's post, I thought I would share an article I just published on LinkedIN.

There are two kinds of investments—one, which your financial advisors and the finance magazines tell you about, and the other, which you don’t hear about often.
The second kind of investment which we do not much talk about (or at least not enough) is where you invest in YOURSELF. I am a firm believer of the statement ‘Life is what you make it.’

I have used the second kind of investment, to shape my life. In 2006, I did not have a single book to my name and nobody had even heard of me. Today, I have eleven books, several short stories, and over a hundred poems to my name. My books make a regular appearance on the Nielsen bestseller charts.

 A lot of people ask me ‘How do you do it? What is your secret?’ I had never thought about it till people started asking me for  ‘my secret’.

I think the ‘secret’ is.......... READ THE FULL ARTICLE  BY CLICKING HERE

Hope you understand!

    nice one mam, its really helpful btw you know wherever i go i just talk about your books and writing almost all my classmates buyed your novels

  2. Dear Preeti,

    Can't agree with you more. These principles are the pillars of my life. And I am already practicing them. Ok yes, I agree I need to buck up on the mind and body exercises. But I know I'll be there. Your articles provide that last gentle push to spring to action. Thanks :)

  3. Every word of it displays your true character. It makes me meet you someday in person even more eager. Thanks for doing this blog marathon. :-)

  4. Wow, Preeti! It was so nice to read this article. It was like an eye opener for me. I am always focusing on things which are irrelevant in my life and often find myself wondering why am I not moving ahead in life. After reading this article, it gave me some perspective of how I can invest more time in myself and perhaps look forward to a brighter 2019! Thanks for posting this today. :-)

  5. Thank you Prathima, Dave, Deepti,Alka and Abhinav!!

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.

So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
