In one of his many publications, he urges aspiring entrepreneurs to tame their egos and open their minds. Vijay Eswaran remembers when he was starting his entrepreneurship journey, a mentor told him he needed to empty his cup of ego. Entrepreneurs with a full cup of ego feel they already know everything, thus preventing them from learning new ideas. He adds that before entering the business world, you have first to empty your cup. Learning is critical in business, but you will never know it all.

Eswran recognizes that the process of emptying your cup of ego is not a one-time act. It is a continuous process, and we have to practice to integrate it into our life. Vijay Eswran says he practices an hour of silent introspection every day as a way of emptying his cup. We are living in a world that is shaped by technology and globalization. Therefore, business is transforming and contributing to a more open, diverse, and inclusive society.

According to Eswran, to achieve business growth in our modern society, we must embrace innovation championed by people coming together from various ethnicities, cities, and communities. Diversity has been proved to bring about business performance since people bring their ideas, perspectives, and experiences to the organization. Other mechanisms of ensuring business growth are ensuring gender equality and advocating for diversity in businesses.
