Vijay Eswaran was asked during an interview he took part in recently if he would do anything differently if he was given the chance to start over again. He commented that he wasn’t sure that he would. Eswaran has learned that everything happens for a reason and that everything is a potential life lesson if it is looked at in the right way. In his opinion, everybody wins some and everybody loses some. He feels that everything he has gone through during his life has led him to where is now. The only thing he might do differently is to take more time off, which is something he is now trying do more of.
Vijay Eswaran believes that if an entrepreneur wants to succeed, he or she needs to continue to push themselves forward. He has also admitted that one of the best things a leader can do is to expect more out of their team members. This is because he believes that most good habits come from being pushed to do something that was initially difficult. He has discovered that people are capable of so much more than they know if you simply don’t give up on them.
Vijay Eswaran has been able to grow his business because he knows a secret. That secret is that he does not take it upon himself to do everything. He has found that it is best to find other people who have similar work ethics as he does and to hire them. He has been willing to take the time to go through many different people in order to find the ones who can help him succeed. He then delegates tasks to these people, which frees up his time to take care of other important matters. Eswaran has also learned that it is very important to embrace his fears. Instead of playing it safe all of the time, he has been able to build a thriving business thanks to his ability to be open to new ideas.
