Our Greatest Spark

Author Interview
Dr. Neeta Bhushan Author Interview

That Sucked. Now What? is a self-help and motivational book that offers readers a practical strategy to normalize chaos when then things go wrong. What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?

The idea that sometimes our fall can be our greatest spark to fly forward in life, no matter what challenges, obstacles, or setbacks come up and to fully embrace it.

Also, a 4 step life- curriculum as I’ve used in my own life come out of hard times with grace, even after awful painful losses, and the bounce factor is just one of several tools – that I wanted readers to have access to as it’s helped myself, my students, and clients transform their lives.

What is one piece of advice someone gave you that changed your life?

As a little girl, my dad would always say they, beta keep saying yes to new adventures, whether its in the form of books, teachers, and wise elders, as it adds depth and appreciation of others in a big way. He was right, it set me off to 60 countries and counting consistently leaning into curiosity as my guidepost.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?

To be brave at sucking at something new. To be okay with the ‘falls’ that will come and to use it as a sign that change is beautiful, in fact can give rise to the magic that’s already on its way.

To be unapologetic and intentional in your own version of resiliency: tough and soft, and gentle and compassion, and loving and stretching you in ways to add to your human experience.

The Brave Table podcast host offers a practical five-stage framework to embrace the possibilities in chaos, normalize sucky human moments, overcome setbacks with grace, and fly forward every time.

You know those awful, terrible, sucker-punch moments in life? The ones that knock you down, burn you up, or make you cringe so hard you wish it was all a bad dream? Probably–because we all do. These epic, messy, oh-no-oh-crap moments of chaos are just part of life–yet, as Dr. Neeta Bhushan shows us, they’re also beautiful opportunities for change.

As co-founder of the Global Grit Institute, a mental health training platform for leaders and coaches, co-founder of the Dharma Coaching Institute, training thousands to live their best lives, and a thriving coach in her own right, Neeta Bhushan has helped thousands of people move past their heartbreaks, failures, and disappointments. And after years of research into human behavior, observing people in their worst and best moments, being a mother of two small children, and failing more than a few times herself, Neeta knows what it takes to get back up no matter what bowled you over.

That Sucked, Now What? is a real-talk guide to personal growth that draws on and embraces the suck–and helps you break through to lasting, audacious resilience. You’ll learn why it’s so hard to get back up when stuff goes down, how four core components of your life shape your individual Bounce Factor, and how to navigate the five stages of the Fly Forward framework through Falling, Igniting, Rising, Magnifying, and on to Thriving. Along the way, Neeta shares successes and failures of her own, from the wonderful to the WTF, in an indispensable book to pull off the shelf whenever life serves up a setback, no matter the size.
