This is the Leadership Journey series on the Choosing Leadership Podcast.

I believe we all have a lot to learn from each other’s stories – of where we started, where we are now, and our successes and struggles on the way. With this series of interviews, my attempt is to give leaders an opportunity to share their stories and for all of us to learn from their generous sharing.

In the interview, Anshul shares how his life took a sudden turn from the world of corporates and finance when he listened to a deep inner voice and pursued the unknown path. We talk about how that path led him to many serendipitous moments – including meeting many coaches and mentors who have taught him how to listen to the deep wisdom and intelligence of our intuition and body – and the science behind it.

In the interview, Anshul shares

  • at some point, you start to pay attention to some of the subtler signs. It’s very hard to describe it, but there is just an internal feeling that feels this is not right.
  • I know how you just tune in and listen in to yourself and understand what your body’s really telling you.
  • There are three kinds of lives people lead, which are survival, success and significance.
  • Ever since I left. I was very clear that I’m just gonna pave my own path. And there is no set path for me in front of me.
  • This is scientific stuff. 75% of the communication that happens is actually your body trying to tell your mind something. And only 25% is your mind actually trying to tell your body, but we only pay attention to that 25%. 
  • The answers don’t come to your mind because a lot of times we will tell ourselves the stories we want to listen to in our mind.
  • The best decisions when you are actually listening to yourself come from a place of absolute common stillness.
  • I’ve always believed in authenticity. One of the defining kinds of quotes, I remember when I was when I just left shell and started this sort of unknown path and life was the privilege of a lifetime is to discover who you truly are.
