Agasthya Shah on The Power of Manifestation, Creator Burnout & Being Vulnerable

Agasthya Shah on The Power of Manifestation, Creator Burnout & Being Vulnerable

As you scroll through your explore page, you are bound to come across a horde of talented content creators. The parameters to go viral have finally distilled down to one thing – creating good content. In an age where fame is accessible through just a click on your hand-held device, how does one stand out among the clutter? According to Agasthya Shah, focusing on the quality of your content instead of the metrics will do the trick.

In this episode of Take aPause, Varun talks to Agasthya Shah, a Gen-Z creator who began his content creation journey in July 2019 and found quick fame during the pandemic when his videos started going viral. As content creators, Varun and Agasthya share their thoughts on dealing with fame, and what they consider as their duty to support other good creators who don’t have the following they deserve. Agasthya confesses to finding his newfound fame “surreal”, and agrees with Varun on the importance of staying grounded and authentic. He also opens up on what helped him cope when his belief in manifesting destiny did not seem to be bearing fruit during a difficult period in his creator journey. Find out more about what the highs and lows of their creator journeys have taught Varun and Agasthya about life.
