Welcome to Subrat Padhi.com
This is a website for those like me, who are enjoying the journey the journey of life, want to make it better, who want to learn from their successes and failures and make progress in the Pursuit of Happiness.
My unstructured Mission, for the first half of my adult life, was to build a career, a family, stay healthy, some wonderful relationships, achieve a semblance of financial comfort and get closer to that elusive goal of happiness and peace of mind and fulfilment. Looking back on the past 25 years, I can say in all honest that I have made reasonable progress in these, and continue to work on each aspect.
As I start the second half of my adult life, I now have an added Mission …. To share my experience and my learning to support people in their journey towards self-development and to develop their potential.
Over the course of the past few decades, I have travelled a long journey. I have experienced the heights of happiness and the depths of despair. I have transcended many of my self-imposed limits and danced with my angels. I have fallen prey to the devil and my dark side. I have committed many many mistakes, some of them while sober.
And through it all, I have lived and I have learnt. Through this website, I hope to share some of this, hoping that somewhere out there, a few people will read it. And one or two of you will be inspired to do some of the right stuff, and to avoid some of the wrong stuff. If this website makes a positive difference to one person, just one person, I shall feel fulfilled.
No one is perfect, and certainly I am far from it. Each of us is on a journey of our choice and shaped by our circumstances. And wouldn’t it be wonderful if some of us can travel this journey together, learning from each other, and being available to support and mentor each other, to shape our circumstances to help us achieve our choices ?
When fully developed (by June 2018), this website shall have over 200 pages of content, enough for a hardcover book or two. Over the years, I hope to build on this, adding at least a couple of pages a week. Your continued feedback will help improve the quality of this content.
