Meghashyam Chirravoori was born in Vizianagaram, India in 1987.
Being an only child of his parents, he spent most of his time alone doing guess what? Reading books, of course. :) Since he was alone most of the time however, he turned into sort of an asocial introvert.
In 2005, he got admitted into the Paper Technology program at IIT Roorkee, a prestigious institution in North India. While he was not interested in paper at all, he radically changed as a person in college. He experienced a "moment of transformation" in June, 2007 in which he realized that there was nothing to fear and that he could go ahead and face any fear head on and still exist! He also suddenly saw the merits of positive thinking and started choosing his thoughts more consciously. This "sudden realization" sparked his interest in personal growth.
Over the next few years, he dabbled at public speaking and anchoring, learnt how to be assertive, interacted with hundreds of new people, faced tens of fears like dancing in public and quitting his job, turned into more of an extrovert, fell in love and got married, started an inspirational website where he conducted life experiments and learnt a lot of other things he'd not known before.
Meghashyam is the author/compiler of two inspirational books: 500 Steve Pavlina Quotes and 100 Incredible Happiness Hacks.
He writes inspirational articles and offers free life consulting and advice at Personal-development-is-fun.com.
He runs an inspirational podcast on iTunes called Personal Development Is Fun and also has a video show on YouTube.
