I am Niranjan Nerlige V. I am a Rebound Coach, TEDx Speaker, Author, Inspirational Speaker and Corporate Trainer. I strongly believe in “Challenging one’s limits rather than limited by challenges”. I have been an effective and efficient corporate professional over two decades, an independent corporate trainer. I am founder of Exelplus Services Coaching and Training firm. I have trained more than 4000 participants and 80 Plus Organizations in the last 10 years, in the area of Agile Project Management to various Indian and Overseas Clients.
I have travelled five countries in my wheelchair for my work. I have delivered several motivational and coaching seminars in many educational institutions, corporates and to public.
Life took a completely different turn when I was about to leave for the US in two months after passing out from a prestigious institute, Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai. On a fateful day in 1994, I had a fall from height accidently due to which I had to be confined to the wheelchair rest of my life. I had to be hospitalized for two years and was taken to operation room almost seventeen times.
As Heller Keller says, “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing”. I bounced back very strongly after two years of my harrowing stay in hospital with very strong will power, determination and can-do attitude. I took up the job in an MNC to become highly successful person within next two years. I am living with my adopted son of 21 Years as a single parent.
In the 2009, I lost my job and didn’t know what to do. As they say, ‘Where there is a will there is way’, I decided to follow my passion to teach, became corporate trainer and I never allowed fate to take control of my life. I also founded my coaching and consulting firm.
In the year 2016 I was invited as a facilitator to the conference in Boston to inspire a group of people in the US. I was awarded "Rotary Diversity Award - 2018",, for vocational excellence and being the inspiration for my achievements and never say die spirit. I was interviewed in Dooradarshan, AB News and other Radio channels to about my life. I have been featured in several newspapers and magazines about my life and my accomplishments. I was invited for TEDx talk at DSCE, Bengaluru as TEDx Speaker.
Recently I was interviewed by one of the crew members of Tony Robbins team to deliver a corporate talk to corporate professionals in Philippines.
I authored a book ‘I CHOOSE TO BE UNSTOPPABLE’ which is an inspiring story of how a physically challenged person, overcame all odds to live a life of incredible achievement, success and fulfillment. My book became #1 Best Seller in Amazon was awarded by Critic Space Journal Literary award as one of the top 100 Debut Indian Authors for his book.
Currently I coach and inspire people to bounce back in their life irrespective of their situation, create happy, successful and prosperous life. I have designed a coaching program “STAND UP- Rewrite your destiny & U can” and a system that will help people to lead happy, successful life despite any situation and PASSION-TO-INCOME GROWTH MODEL for working professionals to turn their passion and do what they love. My mission to help 5,00,000 people in next 5 years to realize their potential and rewrite their destiny.
I strongly believe when person who is in wheel chair can lead an Unstoppable and Fearless life, anyone can create their life way they want by becoming fearless and unstoppable in attitude.
I was going through a rough patch, with lower self-confidence, and a struggle to get back to my full potential. I requested Niranjan to be my Rebound Coach. Niranjan has really faced a lot of hardship/challenges in his life, and has been highly successful in bouncing back to life, even though there were severe setbacks.
In his coaching sessions with me, identified my areas that were pulling me down, helped me to come up with ways to overcome my own limiting beliefs. He helped me great deal in changing some of my faulty habits and change new perspective to help me in my journey. The biggest being formulating a goal for myself and living up to it. Each of the personalised sessions helped me to re-shape my confidence with simple but effective techniques which aided my bounce back. I am now on the path of the second version of me, who is rearing to go with great fervour and tenacity.Ravi Raghavendra

Do you know how I managed to turn my Passion into Profession just by sitting in the wheelchair?
It was during November 13, 1994. The day I never dreamt of. The day fate wrestled on my life crushed my bones and threw me into the wheelchair.
Yes, I had fallen from the fourth floor of my house. Due to the dizziness out of high fever, I slipped out the balcony.
At the time, I was an aspiring software engineer who longed for onsite projects in the U.S. and abroad. Even I had the offer to go to the U.S., but because of this tragedy, I missed the opportunity.
All my dreams were shattered along with the bones of my leg and hands. Out of God's grace after two years, I was able to live my life in a wheelchair, and I got a job as a software engineer.
During 2009, when the whole IT sector went through the recession. I was laid off from my job by a reputed MNC. I had no savings, no investments and nothing.
All I had was my wheelchair, my skills and my passion for teaching.
I took the decision and became a well-recognized corporate trainer and coach. I followed my passion and interests, created an income stream around them.
Despite my physical and career setbacks, I was able to
I was interviewed by one of the crew members of World-renowned Tony Robbins, to address corporate professionals in the Philippines.
All these are possible because I chose to act on my passion and create an income stream based on it by being fearless and developing an unstoppable attitude
During my 26 years of experience, I learnt that "Life is truly too short to spend at a day job that doesn't fulfil you."
I believe that when people make a living out of their passion using their skills, and getting paid for it, we can create fearless leaders who can lead a happy and prosperous life.
