I Own My Future
In this post I’m honored and excited to share with you some words of wisdom from my friend and coach, Meenal Vashishat. I met Meenal almost three years ago and began working with her in a professional capacity in March of 2018. Ever since beginning my journey of Thinking into Results with Meenal, my life has been completely transformed. My focus has gone from scattered to sharp, my vision from muddy to clear and my understanding of why I get the results I get has made my whole life make sense. I now know what I need to do when I have a problem to solve, a result to improve and last but not least, a goal to achieve. I feel like nothing is impossible for me, and my life is starting to reflect the true desires of my heart a little more each day.
I Own My Future
Everyone asks me, “What’s your story?” I have so many, like most everyone does. However, I would like to share a conversation I had with my daughter. She missed her school bus and I was driving her to school. Naturally, we hit traffic because she was running late. There was a long line of cars in front of us. She got a bit frustrated and was wondering why there were so many cars barely moving on the road. I suggested that maybe there was an accident. She responded, “No, Mom. I don’t see any accidents.”
“You can only see as far as you can see,” I replied. “When you move farther down the road then you can see more. As you progress more and more, you can see more and more.”
We are limited within our capabilities and parameters. We are limited within our paradigms. We perceive the way we perceive because of our conditionings. Our genetic and environmental influences and experiences have formed who we are today. We react, respond, talk, walk and carry on throughout our days the way we are programmed. We cannot move beyond our programming. If we want to go beyond, we must progress, and progression cannot happen if we are relying on the same old programming and data within us. Einstein said, “We cannot solve our problems using the same thinking as when we created them.” So, we must use new thought streams. This is the exact spot where a mentor can be truly beneficial.
Often I speak with people who are having marital problems. They use the same old recycled data that they are programmed with to solve problems and at the end give up. But a few will reach out for help because they have the awareness that they have tried everything that they know, which is limited. A marriage therapist may have new techniques and information that could save their relationships.
Now there are times that even a marriage counselor might not be able to help. Remember, our old conditioning that is programmed deep within our subconscious minds lead us into these unwanted situations. Then we strive to change the external scheme of things only to find that we are still not satisfied within.
Let me paint the picture of what exactly is happening. Let’s take the example of debt. Suppose a person is carrying a lot of debt. That person will then feel bad due to the lack of funds. He will try to cut expenses and try to generate more income. Now this might work temporarily, but because the person’s spending habits are not aligned with this new plan, he will go back to spending the way he used to and find himself in debt again. Old habits die hard. And habits are built into your mindset, so they dictate your behavioral patterns which cause you to take the same actions over and over which result in the same results over and over. You see, it’s a vicious cycle and you must get out of it by yourself, but it is difficult to do this alone. Reach out for help, and not just any help. Reach out for help with a mindset coach. Until you have aligned your thinking to your new projected results, you will never be able to achieve them.
This holds true for any results in life that you would like to change. When you go through coaching, a transformation happens which leads to results that stick. This is called a paradigm shift, as my mentor Bob Proctor puts it. You must work on your inner strengths, weaknesses, cravings and conditioning. This can be done alone, but it will take longer, and the results may not be what you want. It can be done much faster with the aid of a coach.
The benefits of coaching:
- You get a clear perspective on your vision. If your vision is vague, your results will be vague. Often you don’t realize that your vision is not clear until you have an outside perspective to show it to you.
- You get an accountability partner who is both well trained and committed to helping you succeed.
- You have a structured and succinct process that turns your abstract vision into reality. This means you are using tried and true techniques instead of trying this or that, hoping that it works.
Do not take this lightly. You don’t have to have a big problem in order to make space for a coach in your life. Any time you want to step into the framework of high achievement, hire a coach. Just like an athlete cannot progress by practicing alone, greater success cannot be achieved without a knowledgeable ally on your side.
I have seen many people who turn to watching YouTube videos for motivation and think that is all they need. Learning does not work that way. A motivational video is like a pain reliever. Once the effects are gone, the symptoms appear again.
I have benefitted tremendously by hiring a coach for myself. But then again, I work with the best in the development of human potential, Bob Proctor. My life has changed in ways I never thought possible. I enjoy deeper connections with my loved ones, I wake up with a purpose that renders me unbeatable from the very beginning of the day, and I bring into reality that which I want. Life is amazing and I get to do this very same thing for other people using a program called Thinking Into Results and adding my personal flare to it. I’d be honored to lock arms with you and coach you into the life of your dreams, too.

When identifying a single phrase to describe my experience with Meenal, my mind inevitably concludes that she is a blessing in disguise. Her advice was tailored to my personal aspirations where she gave me one-on-one suggestions that I am confident cannot be found elsewhere.

Meenal truly cares about you and believes in your abilities. Her persistence and energy is contagious. She sparked my drive and ambition to succeed in all aspects of my life.
What I found most helpful about Meenal’s coaching was her ability to really see me—or maybe I should say, see the real me! Meenal helped me value what I do and gave me the courage to do things in a bigger, more visible way. Thank you Meenal for pushing me into my “big leap.” The training provided by Meenal has been applicable and thorough. I feel completely equipped to move forward professionally now.

I had such a great and positive experience with Meenal! When I’m talking to her, it’s just like I’m transported to a whole new dimension. A whole new world where everything that I want is right at my finger tips. Talking with Meenal always gives me a sense of relaxation that I can’t even explain in words. Her voice is so soothing and calming. Like I’m a totally different person when I’m with her. She inspires me in so many ways. She gave me so many inspiring words that push to me to work harder on my goals. Because of her, I can do everything.
I started the Thinking Into Results program 3 weeks ago. I’m doing one lesson every 2 weeks. And the good thing about it is that Meenal is always monitoring on my progress. She always asks me how’s it going? Did I learn something from the module, do I have any questions, things like that. It’s like I have a personal mindset coach who’s ready to rescue me all the time. Mind you, I’m still in Lesson Two but I have already gathered so much and found out so much about myself that I haven’t known in my 30 years of existence.
I’m so grateful that I found Meenal! Thank you so much for coming into my life. I owe you what I am today and what I will become in the future.
I was born and brought up in the beautiful Fiji Islands. I had a wonderful time absorbing all that I learned along with the atmosphere as I was growing up. I have a bachelors degree in Telecommunications Management and more than 10 years of experience in the corporate world. I constantly improve myself by extracting wisdom from various books and constant learning with a lot of mentors.
I was stuck at one point in my life and literally did not know which way to turn. I was hurt, I was down, I felt like I had lost everything. That is when I found out about paradigms. The more I studied about my paradigms, the more I was able to change my life and pretty soon everything turned around. I have great respect for what brought me to this knowledge. I am ever grateful for the power of understanding it has given me.
I love working with people, and taking them to success at an exponential level. I make it possible by igniting the thinking elements of individuals within an organization by helping them unlock their true potential. This is a proven method of bringing teams together to work in a synergy where both the employees and the organization thrive.
I believe every individual has more potential than they are aware of. I have worked with this foundation with hundreds of people globally and have escalated their productivity and profitability to exponential levels. Let’s work together to inspire and achieve!
