Author Devpal Gupta believes in living life according to those core values to which we we all have access: respect, positivity, and passion. In his debut inspirational book, Power of One, Devpal extracts lessons from his life's journey which began in Tanzania and London and transplanted him to a successful life as an Arizona-based commercial real estate executive and applies them to real-life principles. With no holds barred, Devpal tells it like it is -- he offers no excuse and takes no excuses when it comes to living a purposeful life. With eight hard-hitting, short-and-sweet chapters like "Get Over It" and "Why is the Brown Guy Better Than Us", Devpal straight shoots advice on how to remain genuine, honest and real.  Devpal also introduces his own theory, the Power of One. He imparts upon readers that in order to be truly prosperous, the only one you can rely on, is yourself.

The Power of One is a fantastically quick read and a dynamic demonstration of what it takes to be resourceful and resilient in a world that rewards people for gratuitous likes rather than the efforts and principles behind hard work.




What was your main drive to write this book?  My main drive was to present my journey and life lessons hoping to inspire people.  I wanted people to understand what being 1% really means, and why not needing validation from 99% is critical.  Our mind is our strongest muscle if it says we can, then we will, if it says we can’t then we have already admitted defeat.


What do you hope readers will learn by reading this book?  I hope that readers start living in the present, and not dwell on their past.  I hope they use negativity in their lives as fuel.  Turning a no into a yes is very satisfying.  What is 1%, how can one be 1%, and surround themselves with 1%.  These are questions that I hope get answered and inspires and motives the readers to passionately pursue their respective passions.


Did you do much research when planning this book?  Since this is really an autobiography, and a book that deals with my life experiences and what fuels me, not a lot research had to be done.  It came straight from my heart!


Did you have any main people who helped you in the process of this book or influenced you to write it?  I had a great team Parul Agarwal (my publisher), Peppur Chambers (my editor), Shannon Burton (my proof reader), Suprit Gupta (my wife, and marketing guru), My family, and my core 1% who have always stood by me through thick and thin.


How long did this book take you to write from initial thought to hitting publish? The book in its first copy was written by me in 4 days, but then editing, cover selection, publishing etc, the entire journey was approximately 6 months


Do you have plans to write more about this topic or new topics?  I hope to continue inspiring and motivating people, so I will continue writing but no plans yet on when the next one comes out.
