As a Motivational Speaker Manasi Joshi speaks about the fruition of a journey of learning about inner-self and of how the human body adapts to challenges and how we can push ourselves for the betterment of self and society,
Manasi’s spirit has helped her face life’s curveballs with grace and resilience. Her advice to people facing curveballs of their own: “I think everything comes down to mindset. We have the power to deal with whatever life throws at us. Using patience to evaluate the situation is crucial. We don't need somebody else to tell us what to do. In fact, take well-meaning advice with a pinch of salt. What works for someone else won't necessarily work for you. You have to find your own solution in your own way. Take your time, cry if you need to. But then have faith that you are the answer to your adversity.”
