BELLE'S WORLD

Welcome to Belle’s world. Everything in this world is based on a bell curve. Our media concentrates on giving advice to make everyone be a part of the masses. Belle's world focuses on the outer extremes of the bell curve. 

 

This is a weekly series of our CEO's insights and her perception of the world. They say perception is reality and she lives in her own fantasy world. This allows her to delve into the human element of our lives, helping individuals decipher their own souls, to understand, who they are and what they want, in the journey of life.  As an executive & innovation coach, our CEO see things from a different light that defies normal logic.  These are her musings to help you unleash your mind and transform your life to see a little differently.

 

Belle’s world explores the extremes and goes beyond the surface. Ready to read about some of the “elephants in the room?”

How often do you compare yourself to other's success and life journey?​

Over the years, I've done that a lot. It's human nature to compare ourselves to what people decide to show us about their lives. With social media, the proliferation of all the good things are even more visible. However, the truth is that we as a society still don't openly show the downs, the challenges and the struggles that we may all go through as a huma...

Do you love yourself first?

This is the first time, I will take a media based "holiday" and write something on its theme. I've fought doing that, because to me every day is worth the same, in terms of how I behave and feel. So when we talk about love - I love the people in my life the same everyday and I express it on a constant basis. I don't need Valentine's Day to express it more! However, I didn't want to write about the lo...

Have you ever thought about the Parlay (Ripple) Effect of giving and receiving or even witnessing this process?

It was a chilly but sunny Sunday morning, when a friend of mine, Manju Ramachandran, had invited me to attend a Neythri event by women's leadership coach, Jo Miller, to help me meet new folks as I continue to settle in Silicon Valley. Ironically, I had taken Jo Miller's leadership classes in 2009, when I lived in San...

Living in Silicon Valley, we get temperate weather all year long compared to a lot of places I've lived in before.  As we get into February, we are still getting some cold nights (around 48 degrees) as winter started late.  This past Thursday I was scheduled to attend a dinner of with a group of South Asian Professional Women, organized by Neythri.   It was a cold evening but I am glad I went!  As soon as I entered the re...

Have you experienced bias in 2020?

Most people know me as someone, who is very open to different perspectives and many times I have odd perspectives which I can try to explain. I believe that I am someone who can be open to different perspectives if someone can give me reasons or insights to what they are saying.  I pride myself in being someone who is willing to collaborate even in contentious...

Do you truly understand how your devices affect you mentally and emotionally?

Last night I went to a holiday party, without my Apple watch, iPhone, wallet or even house keys.  My partner had the house keys so I had all I needed for the night.  I didn't miss my any of my devices.  I didn't check to see the time, my email or any texts coming in because I didn't have the direct means to do it.  It felt natural and allowed me to en...

Do you think past tomorrow, to the future of you in 1 year, 5 years and beyond?

It's a Sunday morning and many of us like to have that one day off and will spend it with family and friends.  This Sunday morning, I took the time to attend the launch event for Neythri - A Global Community of South Asian Professional Women.  I was blown away and was delighted with the calibre of the keynote speaker, panelists, organizers and atten...

Would you pass the Marshmallow Test?

The Marshmallow Test is a 1972 Stanford study conducted around delayed gratification in children.  As adults, many of us want instant gratification for the work and effort we are putting into our lives (work or personal). However, we understand that logically it takes time for the effects of the work we do to be visible to us.   

Let's take a simple example of working out to lo...

Does your ego drive you or does your ego get fed by who and what you are?

Ego, in the general sense of our lives today, is defined as "the self especially as contrasted with another self or the world" or simply put "one's sense of self-worth, whether exaggerated or not."1 (Mirriam Webster Dictionary). 

We mostly see ego as negative and many of us don't want to be seen as egotistical.  However, there is a fine line in defini...

If you had the chance to clone - would you? why? who?

I heard a story about Barbara Streisand cloning her dead dog into two new dogs.  In our world right now we continue to talk about the fears of technology but we don't see much about the scientific breakthroughs that are happening around us.  On one hand, cloning like any other new technologies is a feat for humans and we are progressing rapidly in becoming god like with the...
