• Yesterday I was clever,
    so I wanted to change the world.
    Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.

    - Rumi

    Slide 1
  • Don't let people pull you into their storm.
    Pull them into your peace.

    Slide 2
  • None can destroy iron, but its own rust can!
    Likewise, none can destroy a person, but its own mindset can...

    Mr. Ratan Tata

    Slide 3
Our Deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our Deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are we not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fears,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Nelson Mandela in his inaugural speech, 1994


"YES! I CAN" is about asking: What are my beliefs? Are my beliefs empowering me?
If the answer is YES then ask “How do I enhance my beliefs inorder to make the most of my inner potential?”
If the answer is NO, that means you have self-limiting beliefs such as:
• I am not good enough
• I am worthless
Where did these beliefs come from? Are they your own beliefs or have you absorbed these beliefs from your ecology (parents, grandparents, friends, extended family etc.)?
Knoweldge is freedom, once you know, then you can let go off self-limiting beliefs.
YOU cannot change the world, but if YOU change YOURSELF, the world around YOU changes.
"YES! I CAN" is a call for awakening the light within. It is about creating awareness about our true potential. The moment you become aware of your purpose in life, that moment is worth celebrating.
"YES! I CAN" helps introduce you to yourself, to know yourself better, to perform better and excel in all walks of life and live your dreams.
The focus is on making learning fun and more effective with the help of real life scenarios.
Our training is comprehensive and designed to give our participants in-depth knowledge, build hands on skills, and enable them to achieve much more in life.

The founder of "YES! I CAN", Veenu Shivdasani always believed that she could make a difference in the lives of people. Her aim was to have her own training and development house where she could inspire and guide people to believe in themselves.
Her aspiration is now to make every participant unleash the potential within and believe "YES! I CAN"….achieve, aspire, influence, inspire, not only self but also others and make this world a better place to live in.
“Don’t ask; what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it because what the world needs is people who have come alive” – Howard Thruman, African American author, philosopher, theologian, educator and civil rights leader.
Introduction to NLP

NLP represents an attitude of mind and a way of being in the world.
NLP is practical. It is a set of models, skills and techniques for thinking and acting effectively in the world. The purpose of NLP is to be useful, to increase choices and to enhance the quality of life.
The most important questions to ask about what you find in this training workshop are:
Is it useful?
Does it work?
Find out where it does not work and then change it until it does. That is the spirit of NLP.
NLP is best experienced live. Read the menu, and if you like what you read, enjoy the meal.
A photograph never was the person.
A stepping stone is not the journey.
A musical score is not the sound.
There is no magic, only magicians and people’s perceptions.
NLP is like a hologram. Every part connects to every other part. It is a systemic model. However NLP spreads, there are two ideas that stay constant.
1. NLP embodies the attitude of fascination with people. How do they do what they do?
2. The modelling skills: looking constantly for excellence in the world so you can model it and use it.
Excellence is all around, sometimes so obvious that we miss it. NLP is about always increasing the choices you have, and we understand by acting and experimenting, not by thinking about it.


Neuro Lingustic Programming (NLP)
Practitioners Certification Workshop

NLP: thinking, words and behaviour
The way you think affects the internal and external language you use and the concepts you hold. This in turn affects the way you behave. We can change our behaviour by changing our thinking and we can change our emotional state by changing our behaviour. It is a dynamic and synergistic process.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming provides a model that defines:
Neuro – Your thinking processes; the way you use your senses of sight, hearing, feeling, taste and smell to understand what is happening around you.
Linguistic – Your words; the way you use language and how it influences you and those around you. Do your words and the stories you tell put you down or build you up?
Programming – Your behaviour patterns and emotions; how desired habits and attitudes become ingrained and the way you organize your ideas and actions.
The key benefits of NLP for you are:
In Business & Your Career
Get what you want by effectively managing your internal mindset and influencing others to happily work with you to achieve your dreams
Overcome the hurdles which prevent you from taking your business or career to the next level
Learn how to motivate yourself and others with ease
Learn to use language with greater precision and elegance so that you and others can get what you want
Think better, think more clearly and make better decisions
Within Yourself, Your Relationships and Learning
Quickly identify and break through the limitations that are holding you back in business and in life... Once you break through these, your business and personal life will never be the same again.
Master your subconscious mind so that you can learn more quickly than traditional teaching methods could ever allow
Learn things about yourself that you didn’t know before
Master your own emotions so that you handle all eventualities easily
Gain that vital edge that makes you a far more effective and powerful communicator
Enhance your personal relationships
Develop instant confidence

I attended an organizational training program with Veenu in 2006. It was an ice-breaking experience towards personal and professional development. Veenu followed focused workshop activities to bring out the best out of team and individuals using NLP. I had first-hand experience to learn new skills at personality development. Veenu has strong interpersonal skills and swift approach in analyzing the strengths and leveraging them to help progress the individuals. I have known her for over a decade now. Also have had opportunities to involve her in helping my teams improve their results enabling good progress at projects I managed. I recommend Veenu as Coach and Trainer who can help transform you. I wish Veenu and "Yes I Can..." best of their efforts with lots of blessings and support.

"I was really fortunate to attend the 5 days NLP training conducted by Veenu Shivdasani. Various NLP sessions conducted by Veenu helped me to remove my limiting beliefs (mind barriers) and helped to focus on my strengths, goals, improve communication and build roadmap for future. NLP taught that all resources to succeed in life, enrich and enjoy life are already within me and it is just matter of mobilizing them. This understanding was transformational and now NLP has become part of my life. As a trainer, Veenu has deep understanding of this subject and is full of energy. She makes you feel relaxed and keeps it very interactive. I would surely recommend NLP Training and Veenu."

“What do you say about someone who is perhaps the most extraordinary person you will ever meet in your life. Veenu Shivdasani is that person and more. I met Veenu in order to understand about NFNLP course, what all it offers and how can it help me in enhancing the quality of my personal and professional life.
The first two meets with Veenu not only brought clarity in my vision about NLP course but also built trust and confidence in her which allowed me to start a life-changing, beautiful journey on this path.
Veenu Shivdasani is a uniquely-gifted, very-intelligent, compassionate individual. Through the truly amazing and magical knowledge of NLP techniques,she has helped me to believe and have complete FAITH in myself. I am eternally grateful for her guidance.

While you are browsing through this site and landed on this page, I am sure you are in search of something for YOURSELF. So was I even without visiting this site.
Thank you for landing on this page to read what I want to share from my end to you and all who look forward to enjoy every day of our journey on earth, give our life a very beautiful shape, while we love our own selves to start with.
My connect with Yes I Can- It all started from the day I met Veenu in 2006 for few minutes scattered across months. After which we never met for years but, the need for the connect was answered by the universe so soon when I asked for someone who can take me to myself.The one-to-one sessions with her were great. Every minute of the session was a minute that I lived with myself. It gave me an opportunity to listen to myself and understand myself as ‘I am’. All the assumptions and made to believe facts due to various influential factors of life were erased and I started knowing myself better. It helped me in accepting myself as ‘I am’. The journey that had stopped somewhere started afresh again with a new beginning in itself.Then came the opportunity of training it was the second batch and I was lucky to get this gift. The training was awesome and enabled total concentration on myself for throughout the seven days while back home I was with all of my loved ones around. I developed a great bonding with myself. I could sense that I had left myself far behind, busy catering to the needs of all around at home and at work. The journey has a wonderful path ahead. While I understand it’s more of efforts at my end to live the beautiful NLP life, I have already started living it to great extent in such a short time while I have hardly covered any distance on this path.
She being there and her guidance has stood by me whenever I miss connect. She helps me to come back to this wonderful path. I sense the beauty of life in all that happens throughout the day and while I go to sleep too. Life at home has changed and I know it will get more beautiful as I move ahead. I enjoy the comedy of Sadism, bureaucratic approaches at office too. Every day becomes a wonderful short story.
I thank the wonderful soul Veenu and Yes! I can.
Thanks for reading my sharing.

It gives me immense satisfaction to write the below testimonial.
"We are amazed by the way Veenu guided, mentored and motivated us throughout our one day training on communication, rapport & Team building.
Besides training on topics, Veenu also guided us on life coaching & value system.
We being a team had a wonderful experience where every one of us learnt a new view of accepting life in an affirmative direction and enjoying it to the fullest.
This was a great platform for us to connect within. The interaction of each of us has increased and is ultimately going to lead us towards individual progress and company’s growth.

I did NLP when I was 18. On the first day of class,I had no idea about what NLP meant. It has a big meaning and a larger impact on lives. As a person,I was really impatient, lazy, harsh, stubborn, but after doing the course,I realized that all such behavior wasn't because of me but others interference in my life. NLP doesn't teach you to stop socializing but enhances it by not getting affected by others negatively. We are the ones to be blamed for our own sadness. NLP helped me become optimistic,gave me confidence to face situations and people,solutions to problems and made me a better person. This 7 day course gave me a chance to understand what I am and helped me focus on my target. Lastly,I am really thankful to Veenu for this wonderful experience because of which I use NLP in my day to day life. A must do program for all who want to know self and enhance the potential within!

NLP is a life changing experience that makes you aware of who you are, what do you want from life and what are you doing with it. In 7 days of session with Veenu, I could realise and feel the real me. Lots of things, emotions used to hold me back from thinking positive and act constructive, which through NLP techniques, information and strategies have overcome lot of fear/ sadness and negative attitude from within.I learnt to love myself the way I am and forgive myself first in order to do the same for others.I became receptive to all good. Now, whosoever says anything to me doesn't matter till I don't want it.NLP is not a medicine or a magic that may change one’s life instantly.The regular practice of it makes your life wonderful.

What is NLP?
NLP is about a way of studying how people excel in any field and teaching these patterns to others.
NLP is the art and science of personal Excellence.
Art because everyone brings their unique personality and style to what they do, and this can never be captured in words or techniques.
Science because there is a method and process for discovering the patterns used by outstanding individuals in any field to achieve outstanding results.
This process is called modelling, and the patterns, skills and techniques so discovered are being used increasingly in counselling, education and business for more effective communication, personal development and accelerated learning.
What can NLP do?
Have you ever done something so elegantly and effectively that it took your breath away?
Have you had times when you were really delighted at what you did and wondered how you did it?
NLP shows you how to understand and model your own successes, so that you can have many more of those moments. It is a way of discovering and unfolding your personal genius, a way of bringing out the best in yourself and others.
NLP is a practical skill that creates the results we truly want in the world while creating value for others in the process. It is the study of what makes the difference between the excellent and the average. It also leaves behind a trail of extremely effective techniques for education, counselling, business and therapy.
Where is NLP useful?
NLP is valuable wherever human communication skills can enhance results: in business consultation, management, negotiation, education, counselling, therapy, relationships, parenting, nursing, public speaking, sports performance and many other areas.
What kind of results can I get with NLP?
NLP can allow a therapist to change the impact of the past on a client, a teacher to change a poor speller into a good speller, a business person to gain rapport nonverbally and to run meetings efficiently, an athlete to improve concentrations, and more.
How did NLP get its name?
The term Neuro linguistic Programming was introduced by Alfred HabdankSkarbek Korzybski. This is also the same man who quoted, “ God may forgive you for your sins but your nervous system won’t.”
NLP is an integration of several disciplines including neurology, psychology, linguistics, cybernetics, and systems theory.
Neuro - Linguistic Programming provides a model that enhances understanding of:
Neuro – Your thinking processes; the way you use your senses of sight, hearing, feeling, taste and smell to understand what is happening around you.
Linguistic – Your words; the way you use language and how it influences you and those around you. Do your words and the stories you tell put you down or build you up?
Programming – Your behavior pattern and emotions; how desired habits and attitudes become ingrained and the way you organize your ideas and actions.
NLP enables you to replace negative behavior and habits with positive ones.

History of NLP
NLP was developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the early 1970s as they set out to identify the patterns used by outstanding therapists who achieved excellent results with clients. They discovered a number of processes which they fitted into an accessible model to enhance effective communication, personal change and personal development. They attempted to ‘get under the skin’ of Virginia Satir, Fritz Perls and Milton Erickson to understand both how they reached their levels of excellence and how to reproduce their skills. Bandler and Grinder wanted to be able to communicate and work with people as effectively as possible. They used their path to discovery as a way of showing others how to achieve success, too. They began to develop NLP by doing it.


Be The Change

“Be the change you want to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi

Sometimes in life we wonder where we are today and how can we move from this place of discomfort/struggle/confusion and frustration to a place that is comforting & nurturing.

I have observed that the quality of our questions leads us towards the quality of our answer.

The first step towards asking the quality question is to be aware of yourself andbe ready to change. It is time that we acknowledge and accept our weaknesses as our own and convert them into our strengths or simply let them go.

Over the years I have realized that if we stick to a few basic principles, life becomes much more interesting

1. BE KIND – be kind to yourself, even if you make a mistake, say to yourself ‘it is ok to make a mistake’, and then focus on what you could have done differently for greater results. Remember whatever you focus on, grows.

2. Believe in yourself – You don’t have to be great to start it, but you have to start it to be great. Know who you are and why you are the way you are?This knowledge gives you strength to believe in your own self.

3. Be Courageous – be courageous to take up new paths. Courage comes from knowing that something greater than you is having your back. Courage makes you stand up for your own self and decide your own destiny.

4. Behave like you are the best – give the job you are doing your 100%, believe that you are best at what you are doing.Invent your best self and hold on to it for rest of your life.

5. Be ok with uncertainty – It is ok to be uncertain about things and situations in your life, remember uncertainty and confusion leads you towardscertainty andclarity.

6. Turn Around –Nobody is going to live your life for you. You have to live it yourself, whether you are rich or poor, no matter whether there has been any injustice to you orsome unfortunate things may have happened to you. Self pity is the worst pity and a dead end road. You have the choice to decide to stay parked at the dead end or to turn around and drive out to an interesting path towards freedom.

7. Commit to Humour – When we are able to laugh through our misery and things that are disturbing us, our creativity opens up. Stay connected with humour, laugh at your own mistakes and learn from them.

8. Spend time with yourself–Listen to your inner voice, sit quietly with yourself everyday for few minutes. Pay attention to your breathing. You will experience the bliss, and notice that you are more proactive in your thoughts and actions in your day to day life.

9. Face your fears – Someone’s opinion about you does not need to be your reality. Enemy outside cannot do us any harm. Enemy is within that we need to heal and make it strong.

10. Act now – what are your goals and aspirations, put it down on a piece of paper, whether it is committing to exercise every day or learning a new skill, make your own destiny by creating your own vision board. Start taking small steps, even when you are not able to see the whole staircase. Act now.

When I lost all of my excuses, I found my results. I live by Dr. Wayne Dyer’s quote “The only limits you have; are the limits you believe.” Say Yes! to CHANGE and be the CHANGE you want to see in the world.

Good Luck & God Bless.


“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”- Howard Thruman.

A few years back, I coached a corporate executive Aditya (name changed) who was suffering from anxiety pangs. He was neitherable to perform in office,nor washe able to spend time with his family and friends. His hobbies were also eluding him from having that mental peace.

After listening to him for a while, I realized that wherever he wanted to perform or express himself, he would feel anxious and stressed out. He wouldstart sweating and his pulse would start beating rapidly. It was clear to me that he carried a belief that he would experience something unpleasantwhenever he performed or expressed himself. I observed that he re-lived the same unpleasant experience every day, not once but over and over again. As a consequence, he constantly lived in fear, his past experience was impacting his present and future.

In the book ‘The Prophet’ Kahlil Gibran says, “Yet the timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness, and knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.” I understand that first we make our own beliefs and then our beliefs make us. My job was to make Aditya realize that yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery and today is present.

I use Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) in my coaching sessions. NLP is a way of life. We all use it everyday in our lives without even realizing it. My Amma (grandma) used to make us laugh and distract our attention by shifting our focus away from the scolding we received from our parents for not adhering to the rules of the house. She was simply using a technique to change our focus without us even realizing it, with a positive intention of comforting and nurturing us with love and laughter.

I asked Aditya if given a chance, how would he make the bad experience look funny. He replied astonishingly “Oh, I never thought about it”, and he then started the thought process with which his body relaxed and there was a hint of a smile on his face. I encouraged him to add funny sounds and feelings to the unpleasant experience as if he was watching a cartoon movie. In the process, Iobserved him relaxing more and more. I nudged him further by saying “now when you have taken care of that, tell me what makes you come alive”. He enthusiastically replied “leading my team and finishing the targets, and spending quality time with my familyand yes, of course swimming”. He created a vibrant picture of his best self and narrated it with minute details. When he came out of the experience, he was fully relaxed, happy and energetic.

I am a firm believer that we can learn to get over our problems. It is important to accept your failures, mistakes, bad experiencesand learn to laugh at them and then take corrective measures and move forward from there.

When you are not able to laugh at yourself and learn from your experiences,then there is a false belief in your mind that you are miserable because of someone else. We have to understand that it is not about the other person who made you feel in a certain manner that is making you uncomfortable or miserable, it is you, inside your own mind, who is holding on to terrible memories. None of us are exempt from this, and that is ok, as long as we are taking care of it. I have also struggled with it in the past and dived deep within to have a talk with myself.

I believe that It is not what happens to you but how you deal with what happens to you that makes a difference.The best thing about the past is that it is over. You can look at yesterday and say that you are a better person today, even if it is just a tiny bit, you are still headed in the right direction.

Anxiety & stress are feelings & feelings can’t stay still. They are always moving somewhere in some direction. The fact that they are moving means that you can move them out of your body. Our feelings are not outside of our control. You can easily control the feelings once you understand the logic behind it. Focus on the feelings and move them out of your body. Do not take everything to your heart, take it to your lungs and breathe it out.

Today, years later, when I seeAditya performing brilliantly at his work place as an energetic leader inspiring many more with his work ethics and enjoying a healthy and balanced life at home, I realize that when we take ownership of how we feel within and become aware of what makes us come alive,the journey towards the success is effortless.

Peopleusually ask this question “what if this does not work?”. I simply reply that “if this does not work, something else will. NLP is like an ocean of techniques, you can pick and choose whichever fits your values and beliefs as long as you are willing to work on yourself. Remember, “when the student is ready, the teacher arrives”. Stop and suspend all other thoughts and simply focus on what makes you come alive, and what you can do. Then just go ahead and do it.

Just do it.

Shrug It Off and Step Up….

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do? Finally, he decided that the animal was too old and it wasn’t worth to retrieve the donkey and the well needed to be covered up anyway. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he became silent. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off.

This story has inspired so many. It teaches us that life is going to pour shovel of dirt on us, all kinds of dirt in the way of criticism or failures. The trick to get out of the well is to shrug it off and take a step up. Usually when someone criticizes you, you have a thought that echoes in your mind saying “I am not good enough”, “I’m incompetent”, or “I don’t deserve to be here”. This thought manifests a feeling, and you start believing in that feeling. However, if you channelize that thought and think about the positive intention of that criticism, you all of a sudden have a new perception and a new thought pattern. For so many years, you have been criticizing yourself, and it hasn’t helped you in any way. Start approving yourself and see what happens. Each of our criticisms or failures are like stepping stones. It gives you a chance to look at yourself in the mirror and say “It’s ok, hang on there, I accept you and love you just the way you are, even if you are down and out, even when someone calls you name. You are much more than who you think you are”.

We can get out of the deepest wells just by believing in the power of affirmations. According to the research on the significance of the affirmation words I AM THAT, I AM,it has come to the light that these words were written in the ancient spiritual literature in which God tells Moses “This is my name for ever, the name by which I will be known for all the future generations. I AM THAT, I AM”. Align these words with what you identify yourself with. I encourage you to keep in mind that this is your own divine name as well. When you say I am strong, you are defining God as well. Create your own I am mantra. I have witnessed a client with a depressive disorder coming out of the disorder by simply focusing and practicing on healing and uplifting affirmations.

When we own up to our reality and identify the positive intention behind our failures & criticism, we identify the real us. Every failure teaches us that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success. The next time someone criticizes you, take a pause and go beyond the criticism and understand the positive intention behind it. Be open to the criticism but don’t let that affect you. Criticism is meant to help you be a better person. Learn from it, just the way the donkey did; everyone around him called him names like “he is too old & good for nothing”, yet he proved that he is strong and intelligent enough to get himself out of a situation where others would surrender. He took charge of his life and chose persistence & determination over self-pity.

Dr. Abdul Kalam once said “What people think about you is not important, what you think about yourself means everything”.

The donkey in our story also cried, cribbed, blamed and depended on others for his miserable situation, but realized in the process that by not taking the responsibility he lacked courage and was in total denial of his own powers. In that moment of realization, he simply shifted his focus on self. The donkey has taught us to introspect ourselves and focus on ways to come out of that situation. There is always more than one way to come out of a bad situation.

When the donkey found balance within, he was able to think through his dark situation and was able to choose consistent behavior over confused behavior. That made him invent a smart way to bring himself out from that scary and dark well. Always remember, when we touch the rock bottom in our lives, you can’t go anywhere beyond that, the only way is to come up. By taking the right amount of responsibility & understand what went wrong, you can take corrective measures in the right directions. Ralph Waldo Emerson beautifully shares “The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall”. Rise and shine above all the limitations.

Some people are obsessed with the ideas of success. Success is not a divine land at the end of the quest. In the same way, failure is not black and white. Life is truly 10% of what happens to us & 90% of how we react to it. Failures and criticism can be inspiring. They can lead us to bigger and better things, but only when we learn something from them and are ready to own up to our failures. Use your energy in cultivating your capacity to be brave, hopeful, innovative and make yourself resourceful in any situation. Affirm yourself that “I am what I am because of my past. I thank my past, I learn to let go& to move on”.

I would like to leave you all with Nelson Mandela’s inaugural speech in 1994: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, who I am to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are we not to be? You are child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others”.

Instead of labeling or identifying our failures/criticism as stigma, taboo, embarrassing, losing face, let us own our failures and make few changes in the way we perceive things.
