Individuals are not going to see a change in their career goals until they act upon it. According to Vijay Eswaran, we need to focus on two lessons that we need to apply to our lives and those lessons are: Moving Forward and Peripheral Vision.
In the lesson of Moving Forward, Eswaran explains how if we move forward we can then see where we are going and what lies ahead of us. When we lose focus and stumble backwards then we not only lose our balance but our purpose as well. Read more: Living a Life of Purpose: Breaking Away From the Mental Shackles
In the Peripheral Vision lesson, Eswaran discusses how we need to be aware of our surroundings so we will know what is approaching us from every angle in our life so we will know how to handle these situations to prevent it from interfering with our success.
When we are not made aware of these things, then we are left with only tunnel vision. When the shackles of society and peer pressure is put on an individual then we can not do anything and we will fail.
