There is a lot to be said for the growing number of people that are starting their own businesses. I have read that more than 50% of small businesses fail. This can be discouraging to a lot of people in the business world, but Vijay Eswaran did not let the fear of failure overtake him.
I like the fact that Vijay Eswaran was someone that started out struggling but continued to persist. He makes me believe that one can grow from failure and continue to see a greater path to success. As someone that is aspiring to write I have been thrilled by what Vijay Eswaran has done. He has written a lot of books over the years, and these books have been a real motivation to me. Books like “In the Thinking Zone” and “The Sphere of Silence” have been great books for entrepreneurs. In the business world he represents the resilient business man that continues to thrive even when he has challenges. There are a lot of people that may not realize it, but Vijay Eswaran says that failures can play a big part in your growth.
I always wanted to hide my failures when I was growing up. Even as an adult I was ashamed of some of the jobs that I could not do successfully. I didn’t let that deter me though. Vijay Eswaran has written in the “18 Stepping Stones” that every situation presents a chance to learn. That is powerful. I had never thought of any of my failures this way, but now I do realize this. Even when my small business failed I found a way to reevaluate my purpose. I have found this through the motivation from the speeches and written words of Vijay Eswaran.
There are times where I wished that he had more books. I have read everything that Vijay Eswaran has written in the last several years, and I want more. It is great encouragement. He has the ability to encourage others because he is good at encouraging himself. That is very important, and I believe that he represents a new type of business leader: he is the gentle leader that leads with a calm demeanor instead of an iron fist. That may be the one of the best attributes to his leadership style. That may also be the biggest contributing factor to his success.
Vijay Eswaran has become a pillar of many communities because he is also a giver. This is another successful attribute that makes people want to patronize his business. All of his traits represent a rare but highly successful breed of leaders that lead differently. He makes it easier for employees to enjoy their work.
