I’m Dr. Mudgil, a New York City-based pimple-popping, podcasting, positivity-peddling dermatologist!
Allow me to take you back …
It was the summer of 2017. I had just turned 42.
To any objective outsider, I had it all.
I was at the top of my game professionally. I built two successful offices from scratch (one on Fifth Avenue in NYC and one on Long Island). I achieved financial success that far exceeded anything I ever imagined. I lived in a fancy house in a ritzy Long Island suburb with a fleet of fancy European cars in my garage and played golf 4-5 times a week. I had a gorgeous wife and three beautiful kids.
Wasn’t that what it was all about? I had arrived!
Game, set, match!
You see, I come from a humble background. My entire life, I had to grind for anything I wanted; this simple fact turned out to be a blessing and when distilled, my fundamental truth!
Anything I achieved was through tremendous hustle and grind; there were no handouts, no silver spoon etc. I hustled damn hard for everything I achieved. For me, and I believe for all of us, the journey itself is where fulfillment actually exists. That’s the part I loved. That’s what made me feel alive, productive, and what made me excellent. Owning a Bentley isn’t the fun part – that pleasure is fleeting, trust me, I’ve been there. Earning a Bentley on your merit is where the magic is. Living on a plateau wasn’t for me, and shouldn’t be acceptable for anyone. Living on a plateau is settling for average, and average sucks.
We can always do better, get better, and be better.
A new ambition of mine was born, namely, spreading a message of positivity and self-empowerment to encourage folks to maximize personal potential and foster an unrelenting mindset in the pursuit of excellence.
There is nothing special about me. Nothing.
Relentless effort and an unwillingness to fail is my secret.
Let’s get it!
