I love the story where Vijay Eswaran shares how he found the title of his new book Two Minutes from the Abyss. He met a young Tibetan monk in the Himalayas who was meditating on a ledge overlooking an abyss. Vijay asked, “Is it not risky being that close to the abyss?" The monk replied, "Are we all not just two minutes from the abyss?” I realized instantly that this statement is as true today as it was then.
My objective in network marketing has always been to create "a sense of urgency" and "a fear of loss." Vijay comments, “A sense of urgency overtakes everything else.” That is so true. No matter your endeavor, a sense of urgency is critical for success. The words to remember every day are "Do. It. Now."
Once in a decade, a book appears that strips away the veneer of "selfies" in a skin-deep society of immediate gratification through material comparison. Vijay Eswaran has captured the essence of "nowness" and "authentic enrichment" in this gem filled with timeless wisdom and current relevance. Beautifully crafted with indelible impact. I will refer to it often, on my life's journey.
Two Minutes from the Abyss is a delightful read that will help you grow in every area of your life. Vijay Eswaran cleverly teaches success principles by telling real life stories, so that you will easily remember the lessons. This book is the perfect travel companion, complete with illustrations, for a journey to a more fulfilling life. Both light and deep, it is written by a master communicator who knows how to touch the heart and expand the mind.
For the past 17 years, I have been listening to the author share his thoughts, lessons learnt, failures and successes. Finally, he has put all those experiences in this simple, yet powerful read. I would recommend this book for anyone and everyone, no matter where you are in life right now.
Just reading the first few pages of the book made me realize that it’s a book that can help the reader conquer and master the four most important elements in life – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I read this book as part of my daily ritual and let the words motivate, inspire and enlighten me.
Reading this book is like having the author sit in front of me having a one-on-one conversation with me about the core principles of life. The beauty with which these principles have been broken down and explained in a simple yet practical sense with true-life examples is remarkable. There was not a page that didn’t make me pause and reflect on my current life, questioning if I have fully applied what I have learnt from the author.
