About this author

In the 1980s, Rakesh graduated from UC-Berkeley with a Bachelor of Science degree with courses in pre-med, engineering, and computer science. After working hard to put himself through college, he landed a good job at Hewlett-Packard. Suddenly, he had money for the extras. He moved up the career ladder—and then got caught up in the rat race, in status, and in buying material things.
But he wasn’t happy. All he had was not enough. He started to question his life and his purpose. His spirit yearned for something more, something different.

Description: I wrote this book because I know, like me, you want to have more confidence in dealing with difficult economic situations. You want to set aside panicking emotions to make the right decisions. You want to feel safe and stay happy even in these turbulent times. I trust this book’s practical advice will be essential for making your job easier, refocusing your priorities, reassessing what your most important assets are, and energizing your life with renewed optimism in pessimistic times. You’ll draw upon your inner strength to keep balance, make the difficult but right decisions, and support yourself through these uncertain times. In fact, I hope you will use the information in this book repeatedly and in any difficult situation for the rest of your life!

description: Friends,

"The mind is like a river flowing, full of emotions, good and bad, thrusting every which way wildly, like raging water. The riverbanks are like your intellect; they must be strong to hold and channel the water (emotions) properly. Otherwise, the river will overflow the banks, causing a disastrous flood, like a mind out-of-control that creates havoc in your life and others’ lives. What was supposed to be your blessing has then become your curse." - Cruising Through Turbulence

“We look for happiness in every other thing and being around us. We live in an “if and then” model of happiness. If that happens, then I will be happy. This list of “if and then” never finishes, and we continue through our entire life learning how to be unhappy.”
