Hi, Hello!

I am Mahendra Kapady.

You must be wondering why the name 1Beginner? When I was in my teen-age (and early 20s), I was suffering from an inferiority complex. My self-esteem was low, very low. I used to feel shy, underconfident & never felt good while being with myself. I was always under the impression that I am good for nothing. The old poor me attitude. I ran away a lot from people, situation (also from opportunities) I was full of fear & procrastination. The major reason was I used to feel I am not fully prepared, I am not ready.

One day, while I was on the post-dinner walk, I was communicating with myself -“Why I am not improving? Why I am pushing things? I have so so much fear? Why I am not beginning? And the thought struck my mind & I got the answer. I said to myself “Because I am not beginning.” I wanted to be pro but I was not willing to be a beginner. I was terrified of being a beginner. I quickly reverse-engineered my thought process and came to know that my unwillingness to be a beginner is at the core of my low self-esteem.

From that day, I decided to be comfortable as a Beginner. I decided to act even though I was full of fears & not ready. I started pushing myself and started getting comfortable and slowly things started working out for me. I started getting bold, confident and resolving things on my own. This idealogy helped me a lot in my life and continually helping me to go further. I am a big believer and follower of this beginner philosophy. Hence, I chose the name 1Beginner. I always feel comfortable being a newbie/Beginner.
