Priya Kumar is a professional and motivational Speaker.

Published : Saturday, 27 December, 2014 11:20 AM 
Reading success stories of great professionals stimulates motivational enzyme within us and we all wish to emulate them on our path of success. 
Exactly with this aim MBA Rendezvous is presenting you series of motivational stories of successful Professionals who have   carved a niche in their own way and have become icons of Management Fraternity. 
Following above, read motivational story of Priya Kumar
A professional and motivational speaker, Priya Kumar was awarded the Woman Leader award in India, writer’s category. She is also a corporate trainer, columnist for The Financial Express and The Economic Times, radio jockey and author of books such as I Am Another you, License to Live, The Perfect World, Thinking Aloud and The Inspiring Journey of a Hero. 
She has an Honours degree in Economics from Mumbai University, a postgraduate qualification in marketing and sales from NarseeMonjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) and a master trainer certificate in Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP). Kumar is also a firewalking instructor, trained by the SundoorFirewalking School (a US-based educational centre). She is India’s first certified fire walk instructor.
Priya Kumar was mentored by Dr.Niranjan Patel, as he would go around conducting anti-nicotine and anti-alcohol workshops, which were organised by Priya. She began her career after the sad demise of Dr.Patel, by presenting at the workshops that he was supposed to speak at. She then moved on from doing workshops against nicotine and alcohol to conducting workshops on motivational subjects. Her belief is that people can’t be changed absolutely, but they can be inspired to make the necessary changes in their lives.
Surprisingly, Priya Kumar is not a trained motivational speaker. She believes that her love for people, for improving people’s lives, provided her with the necessary training and skills required to motivate people through her words. She feels that only by setting oneself up as an example, one can hope to motivate and inspire others. People want to know what will make them successful.
A daring challenge that Priya Kumar overcame was the switch from a teaching career to a career as a motivational speaker. She was studying for her MBA but she gave it up to create a better, brighter future for herself, though people around her told her that it can’t be done and that she should go back to her comfortable (but not personally fulfilling) career as a teacher. She never gave up, even when she was broke and became the youngest motivational speaker in India at the age of 24. 
She had lost all her savings, because she had invested all of it in her new career. She had nothing more to lose – which she saw as a great circumstance, because if one has nothing to lose, then one has nothing to do but move forward in life. She did not have anything to cling to, except her motivated spirit and her never-say-die attitude, which did hold her in good stead.
She had never really planned on becoming an author but she knew that writing served to be a big relief for her. It allowed her creativity and freedom. She believed that she could become whatever she wanted, since she lived in a world beyond the normal entrapment of daily life.Stay informed,
