Being successful in business is far from easy. After all, if everyone could succeed in commerce, everybody would be rich – and that simply doesn’t happen.
Vijay Eswaran is a popular Malaysian businessperson who is currently based in the Far East. Mr. Eswaran is currently the Executive Chairman, the highest role in the company, of the QI Group, a company with countless subsidiaries that include the likes of Questnet, QI Limited, QNet, and GoldQuest. Throughout his career, Ms. Vijay Eswaran has spent time in the United States of America, parts of Europe, Malaysia, Indonesia, and eastern Asia.
But what philosophies has Mr. Vijay Eswaran, a man worth more than $500 million, adopted, harbored, and practiced throughout his career?
Every businessperson has their own philosophy as it relates to business, though many people’s lines of thought as they related to success are largely similar to one another’s. However, Vijay Eswaran has always maintained a 100-percent unique view of business and hard work.
Being fearful of failure isn’t necessarily bad
Anxiety is the body’s natural response stimuli and stressors that could potentially cause harm or otherwise be problematic if affected by them. Even though every normal human on planet Earth experiences anxiety throughout their lives, not everybody knows how to deal with the physiological changes that anxiety produces.
Fear and anxiety are closely related. Vijay Eswaran states that from the beginning of his life up until he reached undeniable success over the past few years, he was fearful of failure or the stagnation of his business. In other words, Mr. Eswaran was always on edge and anxious until the QI group climbed its corporate way up the proverbial ladder of business competition across Malaysia and the other countries that the QIGroup operates in.
Mr. Vijay Eswaran recommends to young people just starting their own businesses or anybody who hasn’t reached the level of commercial success they desire to use the anxiety to fuel one’s action in the workplace. Most people let anxiety eat at themselves and their sacred mental health, though simply putting that fear to work can help people perform better in the workplace.
Modification comes from the mind
People often get stuck in worn-out ruts throughout their lives. This fact of most people’s lives – if not all people’s lives – manifests itself in the stagnation of business. Those who want to change, according to Eswaran, should wholeheartedly make changes from their heart, not make them superficially.
