Don't Think Of a Blue Ball (9)


No matter what your latitude,
Malti wants to change your attitude.
You need to show more gratitude -
no matter what life's shat at youd!
It's much more than a platitude -
Be grateful for the food you've chewed.
Enjoy each cup of tea you've brewed.
Forgive your friends when they are rude.
Forget the ball that has been blued,
and If you want a better mood -
Then toss out all the lassitude
And fill your life with gratitude.

The Official Launch for Malti Bhojwani's book, "Don't Think of a Blue Ball" was held in Shiros, Mumbai - on Thursday, the 30th August 2012. Arshad Warsi, Hindi Film Actor and Comedian

Yesterday, I was still in a state of awe and wonder. Truly truly basking in the feeling and riding it, relishing it and so so grateful. Finally at night,

when I had a moment to myself, I listened to my Workshop playlist and Reach – by Gloria Estefan came on, that’s when the sobs of joy and gratitude filled my chest….
Yesterday, I was still in a state of awe and wonder. Truly truly basking in the feeling and riding it, relishing it and so so grateful. Finally at night, when I had a moment to myself, I listened to my Workshop playlist and Reach – by Gloria Estefan came on, that’s when the sobs of joy and gratitude filled my chest….

Even as I try to type this now, it feels inadequate to put into words what I felt on Thursday night on stage and in front of my parents and my dear family and friends and the hundred cameras and flashes going off. The beaming faces of my dear ones in the audience…

When I was going to sleep last night, I wanted to re-live every moment, but there were so many faces, and so many words and when I look back on my own answers to some of exercises which I have outlined in the book, I saw that I had visualized so much of it before, down to my beaming smile which I felt on the night and then over the last 36 hours seen hundreds of photos which confirmed. My friends in Mumbai will also confirm how Shiro has been my favourite venue and for me to celebrate this milestone there after so much running around, options, cancellations and offers from other venues, was just another testament to how this “manifesting your desires” works! For the record, I am also 8 kilos lighter than I was when I had started writing this book.

I am sad that my brothers, Sanjay and Vishaal, my dear sis-in-law and friend Reshma could not be there with me and the one person that was so missing for me was my daughter Drishti, I guess I had to focus on who was there and know that the ones who weren’t were there in spirit for sure.

Rejuvenating face mask!

The evening started with a lot of photo-taking as our esteemed guests arrived. Then when our chief guest Arshad Warsi walked in with his gorgeous wife Maria Goretti, the room had a new energy. Nupur Khosla, took the podium as our compere for the night and she introduced all 3 of us so beautifully before we took our seats on the stage in front of this “larger-than-life” backdrop of the cover of the book. 

Ajay Mago’s speech was so touching that I almost already needed my tissues, lucky for me, I had Arshad Warsi, who apart from an actor is also very very funny who made me laugh in time to re-compose myself before it was my turn to take the podium right after him. He shared how he really connected with Chapter 1 which talks about what you “Don’t” want in life.

When I took the mic, for a moment, I had no words and for an author, after having written over 66,000 words and a long speech for the night, my speech left me and I had to stand there and look at the smiling faces before me. I did get to thank my parents Maya and Lachman Bhojwani and cousins Roopa and Harish Fabiani, Roshan Tulsiani, Bharti Bhojwani and Shanel Chellaram and my maasi Putli Dadlani and finally my dearest friends who are more than family to me now, Shameem and Avinash Jashnani and every one else. I also did get to thank Om Books International’s Ajay Mago – publisher, Dipa Chaudhuri – Editor in chief and Nitin Abbey, my editor.

Soon after I was done, we unveiled the book and we posed for more photographs, then it was all a whirlwind for me as I was led to the TV crew who interviewed me about the title and my personal experiences. Being my first time, I was not sure what to do and attempted to hold the 10 mics that were held out to me and I looked down at the reporter who was asking me a few questions, who then told me that I didn’t need to hold the mic or look at him, but rather just look up and phew…..I looked up at over 10 cameras and this is when I got to share the parts of my speech which I didn’t get to do on stage, which was about the title. 

You see, my publisher, Ajay had been trying to explain to me that the book needed a good and catchy title and he referenced Jack Canfield’s Chicken Soup For the Soul Series. Through the forces of the Universe and my dear friend Gautam Ganglani from Right Selections in Dubai, a copy of my book landed in Jack Canfield’s hands and the first thing he said was “I Love the title”.

The evening followed with the esteemed designer, Neeta Lulla supporting me further with lots of photo poses, over 150 of my friends partying with me, numerous book signings, lots and lots of my old and new friends hugging me and congratulating me. I had a fabulous night at Shiro, also thanks to Dewar’s our event partners. We danced to my favourite songs and spent the rest of the evening in joy and thankfulness, for CELEBRATION is the ultimate form of gratitude when you are truly present to the here and now.

More videos and photos will be posted on my YouTube and Facebook soon so do look out for them, and for those who were there, THANK YOU!!!! And pleaseeee TAG yourselves!!!!

In Thankfulness, Appreciation and Gratitude, 
Malti Bhojwani


Intuition is the signal your unconcsious mind sends you, telling you to do something or not. Hone it, say experts

Has it ever happened that your phone beeped, and you knew it was your client. Some call it a hunch, others, a fleeting flash of intuition. The word intuition is derived from the Latin in + tuiri (to look at), and in psychological terms, it's nothing more than connecting, within a context, a range of information that the unconscious mind is absorbing every minute. "Our unconscious mind observes and stores every ounce of data," says neurolinguistic programming expert Malti Bhojwani.

"And when needed, it picks up relevant information and presents it to us. For instance, you know it is your client's text, because you had sent him/her one earlier, and your unconscious mind calculated the time it would take for him/her to read it, based on information it had about his/her work schedule." Intuition is like a signal that tells you to do something or not, pulling you in a certain direction so that you end up being at the right place at the right time. It may tell you that your orientation feels right or wrong. Most often, it comes to you unexpectedly. The ability to use your intuition is like using a muscle, says Mumbaibased Bhojwani. And like any other muscle in the human body, the more you use it, the stronger it grows. Bhojwani, who has discussed the phenomenon in her recent book, Don't Think of a Blue Ball, tells you how to recognise a hunch, and strengthen it using simple techniques.


Plugging in
'Plugging In' is the term Bhojwani uses for meditation — alone time with yourself, sitting in silence, finding your axis, praying — you can call it anything you like. All you need to do is sit by yourself, in a relaxed position of 'openness', i.e. shoulders thrown back, spine straight, legs and hands uncrossed.

Accept your thoughts and feelings as they come, and let them go. Slowly, become aware of your breathing. If you like, you can ask for help, internally, from a higher power. If you don't, think of the problem you need help with — this makes your conscious mind run down to the library of your unconscious mind with an intention. The unconscious then runs through its files of observations, and throws up all that can help you in the given situation.

Bhojwani emphasises on connecting with the Universe or a higher self. To do this, she imagines roots growing from her feet deep into the ground and vibrations from her head reaching to the sky. You could also try imagining that you are gradually being filled with a white light, or happiness or love.

Focus on the space between your brows, where the chakra that governs third sight sits, if that is your belief.

Bhojwani suggests doing this whenever you can, for however long, even if it is just before you fall asleep every night. Three short sessions of three to five minutes a day will help.

Once you are plugged in, expand your sphere of observation. You have to do this on three levels — visual, auditory and kinaesthetic. Take in the details of the colours around you, the textures, the difference in shapes and shades. Notice the layers of sounds — conversations around you, sounds of traffic, bird chirping, and the voices in your head.

Then, there is what you feel on your skin — the temperature, direction of air, the feeling of the sofa you are sitting on, etc.

By doing this, you are bringing to a conscious level what your unconscious notices and stores. Thus, you will be able to recall it better.

Now contract your focus. Take one thing, say the feeling of the chair you are sitting on, and notice the sensations minutely. The pressure you feel, the strain of the cloth on your seat, how it leads to tension between the hip and the knee. You are exercising your senses, and training your mind to recognise everything it put away, making it more diligent so you can tell the next time you have a hunch.

You can turn this into a game you play while commuting back from work.

Keep a journal
Reviewing hunches helps validate them. Carry a notebook and jot down every thought. From time to time, see how many of these come true, and you might end up recognising your strengths. This will also help you weed out prejudice — you knew your friend would not get back to you with a job contact, but she did. Your hunch was wrong, but then so was your prejudice.

When you are likely to meet a group of people later, jot down your impressions of them. Mr A is a single child; Ms B went to boarding school, etc. When you get the chance, ask them about your guesses and see whether you were right. Then break down the reasons — perhaps Ms B's independence and easy confidence is something you've seen in your cousin, who went to boarding school.

This practice will help you recognise the information, and make connections.

Everything is connected
Another exercise Bhojwani suggests is to see how everything is connected. While this doesn't work your intuition directly, it helps calm you down in a crisis, which indirectly means your brain works better since it is relaxed, and allows you to notice your hunches.

At the end of the day, acknowledge one positive occurrence. It could be something as small as getting to unexpectedly eat your favourite dessert. Trace the chain of events that led to this — your colleague was supposed to go to a client meeting, but (s)he fell ill (and you were irritated you had to fill in). The client insisted on meeting at the restaurant that happens to serve your favourite dessert. That's how you ate two banoffies on company account!

When you make a habit of going through this routine, you won't be thrown off guard by momentary disruptions and begin believing that in the end, it will be alright.

Readers of present and past have been served with a copious fare of self-help books and books on how to develop an attitude towards life. Being agonizing, dogmatic and of little help, most of the reams of literature published in this genres lies in bureaus gathering dust, but never even makes it to being a conversation starter.

Malti Bhojwani, with her simple but spirited style of writing, begs to differ about being a life coach. Her book, Don’t Think of a Blue Ball is not just self-help, nor does it have the languid, instructional tone. In fact, it has the light, breezy and sanguine tone that most self-important life coaches cannot keep away from their writing. The book does not bring up issues one do not want to face up to, but lets ideas unfold only when one is ready for it.

The modus operandi of the book is that it treats the reader with respect. There are scientific, spiritual and situational examples, some derived from the rich experience of the author who is herself a successful and dedicated life coach, and some others taken as excerpts from scriptures, writings of great philosophers, thinkers and Gurus.

Being pertinent to the current times, equally respectful of the past, and welcoming the future with gurgling enthusiasm, the book has received favorable reviews already from Times of India. As Mandovi Menon eloquently writes, this book is a compelling one, but nowhere is it constrictive. It keeps gyrating as naturally as one’s thoughts would, and it is easy to see why one feels as if one is in conversation with the author herself. She has been able to distill experiences from her life coaching sessions and witty little epigrams and present them coyly to the reader, who feels as if they were reading about themselves. No wonder a #1 ranking among out of the 186,000 life-coaches of today has been bestowed on Ms Bhojwani.

“As she gently forces us to confront a more honest version of ourselves through riveting lessons about positivity, replacing negativity, letting go, coincidences and much more…” says Ms Menon while writing for the Times of India about Don’t Think of a Blue Ball. It is no wonder the book has gained international popularity right from the moment it was released, and the copies have been flying off the shelves. Bhojwani’s YouTube channel has already crossed 10,000 views. Check out and buy the book at



Since it's very recent release, "Don't Think of a Blue Ball" has made its way around the globe to land in the hands of world renowned authors and speakers including Les Hewitt, co-author "The Power of Focus" which was written together with Jack canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul series) and Mark Victor Hansen ("Outwitting the Devil" with Napolean Hill) It is no surprise that Malti's book is sailing in the same rivers as these phenomenal authors. Malti has quoted Napolean Hill several times in this book, with permission and blessings from the foundation. "Think and Grow Rich" was an instrumental book in her own personal development journey and literally "hit" her on the head (as she puts in) three times in over a decade before she "got" it!




Don't Think of a Blue Ball is not a book for the closed-minded. It's well in keeping with the changing times, the growing sense of spirituality that's shrouding the world today. It contemplates something that more and more people have been searching for in these trying times--a real sense of inner peace. 

It's fickle in the best of ways; only to imply that this book has chameleon content and can as such be whatever you want it to be. In fact, Malti herself puts it best at the very beginning of the book when she says, "Don't Think of a Blue Ball can be as deep or as light as you want it to be." Though this may be enough motivation for you to go out and grab yourself a copy, allow me to paint a clearer picture. 

This is a self-help book in many ways--no question about that. But Malti has definitely given the genre a fresh perspective, at least with respect to linguistic style. If you've been a regular reader of her articles, you already know of this life-coach's uncanny ability to simplify complex theories and illustrate their application in real life. This book is much the same in all its unprocessed, what-you-see-is-what-you-get language. 

The book has a good flow, which is remarkable considering the plethora of topics that Malti speaks about in here. The topics she covers have been spoken about before--in literary works such as 2006's best-seller The Secret--but she tackles it in a manner I thought was especially riveting due to a strong sense of personality that comes through. As she gently forces us to confront a more honest version of ourselves through riveting lessons about positivity, replacing negativity, letting go, coincidences and much more. 

A lot of her prose is speckled with DIY lessons, which adds to the book's worth, in my opinion. Malti's always vocal about her NLP training and is generous in sharing some great trade secrets through these tests and exercises that she's learned and applied with great to success in her own life. 

Of all the tests available in the book, I especially enjoyed the 'jigsaw puzzle visualization exercise' and 'thinking pink declaration exercise'--but this is definitely going to differ from person to person. Also, I loved that she didn't hesitate to share deeply personal experiences, all of which further simplify the message of the book while engaging the reader. 

In the end, this book is more akin to a tete-a-tete with the coach herself as it feels as though she's talking directly to you. Despite considering myself to be a strong and positive person by nature, this book made me take a harder look at myself. It gave me a clearer picture of what I wanted, and a step-by-step method of achieving it. All this while using the power of the universe and faith in ourselves--the two things we often neglect. 

As I soaked up the last few sentences of the book, I closed it gently, suddenly aware that this was more of a beginning than the end!
