Vijay Eswaran is one of the wealthiest men in the world. He’s also one of the most successful and respected entrepreneurs. In this video, he shares his advice for relieving stress during high-pressure moments.
Power of Silence:
Vijay Eswaran says the ability to keep your mouth shut is what separates the successful from the average. Silence is an art. It takes a lot of practice to master. He says it’s way too easy for people to expose their emotions and thoughts when they’re at a loss for words. Being able to keep your mouth shut is the key to improved communication, more meaningful relationships, and better decisions in life.
Influences and Inspiration:
People tend to put others on pedestals. They think that great people are not human like the rest of us. They think they’re infallible and can do no wrong. Eswaran says it’s better to approach people as real human beings who are fallible and make mistakes just like everyone else. He says anyone with the right intentions and attitudes can become great regardless of their background or past failures. Anyone can make a difference in the world. That’s why you should follow those who inspire you. What he says: When someone inspires you, observe the qualities they possess and boost that in yourself. Being inspired by others makes you more badass than the person who inspired them.
Entering a Flow State and How to Achieve Your Goals:
People are different. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to achieving goals. Vijay Eswaran says it’s important to find a way that works for you if you want to attain your goals. When you buy into something with passion, you can achieve anything. You just have to keep pushing until you get there. For those in the higher levels of the business world, he suggests that you enter a flow state. You should play your cards right and do whatever you can to achieve your goals.
