Interview with Muthuswamy N

Your title " Success through Opposites" is intriguing. What does it mean in a nutshell?
We have found that success eludes us if the thinking process we use is faulty. In many cases our thinking process is oriented towards what we think is right and good. We avoid vistas because we might have to use what we think is wrong and bad. In a way we are slaves to one opposite- what we think is right and good- and hate the other opposite -what we think is wrong and bad. This thinking process leads to mental blocks when we face situations in life where the opposite of what we think is right is the right choice. The situations we face in our life are not in our hand, but the response to the situations we face on our life is only in our hand. we are unable to give the most appropriate response to the situation we face - either in official or personal life. This happens because of a recording process on our mind right from the time we are born.

The book describes this process and suggests a way out - the way is simple and practical. The method ensures that one of the opposites we dislike also gets recorded on our mind. So we are not averse to any opposite also. Now when any situation arises in front of us in our lives, our mind is free and open to consider any option and its opposite too, instead of considering only one opposite as was happening earlier. So our mind starts thinking in opposites, is not blocked by and is a slave to only one opposite and is thus freed from it clutches and is able to arrive at the right decision and take action. So instead of just one of a pair of opposites being the master and you the slave, you become the master and both of a pair of opposites become tools in your hand to get success and therefore happiness to you.

The thinking process called thinking in opposites is time tested and proven- both in personal and official lives.

The topic of my book- particularly the process of thinking - " thinking in opposites"- has helped so many people that they prevailed on me to write a book so that many more can get benefited. So I wrote my first book when I was 67 years old.
The concept in the book in simple, easy to practice and geo-political, geo-cultural free. It has no religious preachings, though I may quote from religions to support my line of reasoning. The applicability is to the entire world and in both personal and official lives.
So I thought why not spend my time in writing the book so that if benefits many more people as it has benefited people who have pursued this approach, practiced it and benefited from it? .
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. I write for them and with them in mind. I am fulfilling their wish in writing this book as they want my book to reach as many people as people. I am fulfilling their command to me. They tell me the thinking process I have come out with is a very original, simple and practical and above all produces results.They say it has helped them immensely in their decision making process, changing their personality traits to more them positive and desirable, and helped them immensely to be far more successful and happy.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The conviction that I have something different and original, at the same time simple and effective process of thinking to offer to millions to make their life more meaningful, successful and happy, irrespective of their education, experience, nationality, religion, cultural, political or any other background. .
This conviction grew in me over the years, not because I thought I have come out with something different, but because my thousands of audiences told me so. So this conviction is not claimed by me but by my customers.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am the chairman of my company- quest systems pvt ltd., - that has applied these principles and processes of thinking in several organizations of all sizes including multinationals, and several people- particularly students and youngsters over several years.. So writing a book was part time for me till I retired as CEO of the company, now I am giving much more time to this activity as i feel this can be of use to all societies- that is the mankind in general.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I don't know whether I am as yet a 'successful' author or not. I chose Smashwords because it gives the freedom to authors which hardly any other publisher gives. It is headed by an author, who understands deeply author's needs; I can say this is the only place in the world that recognizes authors as customers and treats them as such. Its service is total, fast and its intention is not to squeeze as much money out of authors as possible, as seems to be that of most of the publishing houses in my four years with them.
As my own objective is to make it available to as many people as possible, and as price is a limiting factor in most parts of the world, in Smashwords and also because of ebook, I can price it as low as I want.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I hear from my readers and customers the results it has produced for them.
What are you working on next?
I am writing my next book " Success through Super systems" - an exhilarating and original concept that can be applied by all to both the personal and official lives. This book also will be published by me in Smashwords by about June 30,2914.

Don’t we often wonder why our sincere, genuine, out of the heart and immense efforts result in failure? In other instances, we achieve unexpectedly large success with relative ease? Contrary to normal belief, factors outside our control do not play a significant role in explaining our success, factors well within our control do. To become masters we should put our mind in order by vaccinating it!
