The work of Vijay Eswaran was focused, for a long time, on the creation and success of his QI Group brand that has become one of the world’s most respected direct sales companies. In the last few years, Eswaran has been looking to change the way his company and himself are viewed with a range of options undertaken to bring his success into the public arena. One way that has proven the most impressive success for the Malaysian business leader has been his work as an author.
Throughout his career from 2005 to 2016, Vijay Eswaran found the time to write five books alongside the work he has done to build the QI Group. The most impressive aspect of his work as an author is his consistent development of the lives of others who he believes have the potential to follow in his footsteps and achieve business greatness.
As an author, Eswaran began his career with his bestseller, “In the Sphere of Silence” that detailed his own meditation techniques he believes helped lift him to business success. In the book, Eswaran explained the use of meditation allowed him to block out the noise of modern life that makes its way into our lives in the form of the news that comes through our phones. Eswaran asks how much of this information has an effect on our daily lives and how much can we control? The answer is surprisingly little and led him to use his daily meditation period to blank it out of his head.
Vijay Eswaran completed his fifth book, “Two Minutes from the Abyss” in 2016 and took a slightly different approach to build a successful business career. One of the most impressive aspects of the book is the revelation that the fear of losing everything he has built over his life is one of the main reasons he still pushed so hard for more success.
Upon his first ventures with the QI Group, Vijay Eswaran often found himself the proverbial two minutes from disaster before the company found its feet and became a respected member of the sector. For example, the offerings of the QI Group had been limited before receiving the contract to sell commemorative precious coins marking the 200 Sydney Olympics. Others felt the QI Group and Vijay Eswaran had completed a misstep when they moved into organic food production only for the company to make this a major success as it moved forward.
