How To Leverage The 7 Universal Laws
Did you know there are seven universal laws that influence everything we do? Great leaders do, and they also understand how to leverage these laws to create maximum impact. Since everything in the world is interconnected, whatever you do has an impact on someone else. It’s merely a question of whether you are impacting others positively or negatively.
The seven universal laws show us how energy operates on a daily basis in our lives.
- The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy
Everything is energy and constantly changing
Energy is constantly changing form from one state to another, which means that nothing is as it seems. The human body renews its entire skin every 2-3 weeks, so whilst it appears the same, it is actually made up of entirely new cells. This means, as leaders, we are constantly dealing with change; and it is not something to be feared but rather something to embrace.
- The Law of Vibration and Attraction
Everything in our universe continually vibrates and moves.
Vibrations of the same frequency resonate with each other, so like attracts like energy. Everything is energy, including your thoughts. Consistently focusing on a particular thought or idea attracts its vibrational match. Great leaders leverage this law by focusing on what they want instead of what they don't want.
- The Law of Polarity
Everything in the universe has an equal and exact opposite.
In Eastern philosophy, this law is referred to as the yin and yang, and it alludes to the fact that a polar opposite exists for every situation. This is reassuring for leaders when there are challenging times, because it means that things can only get better in due course.
- The Law of Rhythm
Everything is moving in perfect rhythm and at perfect speed
When we look at the natural world, everything has a rhythm to it. There is a rhythm to the seasons; they always come and go in the same order. There is a rhythm to the rising and the setting of the sun, and the ocean has its own ebb and flow. Even our heartbeat has a natural rhythm to it; and yet all too often, business leaders try to defy this law. They put their foot to the pedal, working day in and day out, increasing stress levels and never resting and recuperating. In the worst cases, this can result in a heart attack as their heartbeat flat lines. Devoid of a rhythm, the body can no longer sustain life.
- The Law of Relativity
Everything is relative
We have become masters at comparing ourselves to others. In business, we compare our financial performance against the prior year, and we often benchmark our performance against our peer group. Team members compare their performance with that of their colleagues, and their personal success with that of their friends. The irony is that this direct comparison is often flawed, because everything is relative based on our own past experiences, personal values, and experiences. There is no such thing as wrong or right, it just is.
- The Law of Cause and Effect
For every cause there is an effect and for every effect there is a cause
According to physics, there is an equal and opposite reaction for every action. Therefore, nothing happens by chance and anything you “cause” is the “effect” of something that came before. Good leaders appreciate that what they sow, they reap, so they say good things to everyone and treat others with respect so it will come back to them.
- The Law of Gestation
Everything takes time to manifest
Nothing is ever created or destroyed; rather, all new things are a result of something that already exists. There is a gestation period to the creation of everything, and therefore a correct time and place for everything to happen. Many business owners give up too early, before the gestation period has had time to elapse, which is just like digging up bulbs before the plants have had the opportunity to flower
Remember: the universal laws are operating all the time, so ensure you leverage them - because if you don’t, they will operate against you.
