Are you afraid of things? According to Vijay Eswaran, fear is not something to be ashamed of. Everyone has fear. It is human nature to be fearful of things. However, the thing that separates successful people from people who are not successful is one thing only. That is how you approach your fear. Do you let your fear overtake your life? In the end, if you do that, you will be faced with a life that is incomplete. You will always have regrets about the things that you could have done. If, however, you embrace the fear and try to conquer it, then you will emerge stronger, smarter, and on the path to success.
Fear can be a bad thing or it can be a good thing. According to Vijay Eswaran, there is only one kind of fear that is good. This is the fear that you will not have tomorrow to accomplish what you want to do in life. This kind of fear is good because it helps you overcome procrastination and start getting things done right away.
Vijay Eswaran, a noted businessman, life coach, and motivational speaker, often tells people about his own near brush with death and what caused him to realize that you have to be of the mindset that you only have today to do what you want in life. He said that he was once snorkeling with his family at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. He jumped out of his boat and into the sea. He was snorkeling and everything was going fine until he suddenly felt the water underneath him turn cold and go pitch black. He suddenly realized that he had moved over from being on top of the reef to going over the edge of the reef. He realized that the strong current could carry him away and bring him into the ocean, where there were plenty of sharks.
However, his fear saved him. It took him over completely and caused him to use all of his hidden powers to swim back to the reef. Fear can really motivate you.
