This is the first post of a series of posts regarding Laws of Nature or Natural Laws. Our Universe obeys certain rules or laws and everything in nature follows them to the letter. These laws are precise, and many of them are mathematical in nature. First off, we’ll explore the Law of Process and I’ll show you practical ways to use it.
One definition of the Law of Process says that anyone can achieve any goal by breaking it down into small steps until such goal is reached. They key thing here is to enjoy the process while taking constant action to achieve your objective. By being enthusiastic about it, you’ll feel more compelled to achieve it. But you need more than continuous action, you need to be persistent because the journey will be long and oftentimes tough. Be laser-focused, and don’t take your eyes of your goal, even though things get tough.
By enduring long enough, you’ll be able to see the fruits of your labor. It’ll be rewarding because you’ll be able to reach your goal, but most importantly, you’ll become a better person. Perhaps, everything can be taken away from you, your house, your money, etc but nobody will take away the character you will develop as a successful person. You will encounter obstacles and problems but take into account that they’re there to make you learn and grow. Just know that mistakes are made, but always correct your path toward your desired goal. Don’t get discouraged, think about the benefits the goal you’re striving for will give you. How will you feel once the goal is reached? These are things to bear in mind when applying the Law of Process, it takes desire, effort, focus, consistency, but over time you will reach your goal.
Follow These Three Steps When Applying the Law of Process:
- Become the person you desire to be
- Do the things, you’ll love, to be doing
- Get what you’ve been desiring all along Remember: To Be, To Do, To Get
You may think this idea is wrong. How can you become the person you desire to be first? Well, if a person wants prosperity, for instance, his mental attitude has to be prosperous first, and by doing what a prosperous person does, over time, he will get prosperity is his life. To be, to do, to get, is a simple formula; yet, it’s often ignored, that’s the reason why most people don’t get what they want besides don’t knowing exactly what they really want.
The Law of Process start with you, it starts in your mind with the aid of your creative process which is basically the creative use of your imagination. By seeing yourself as the person you desire to be, your positive thought patterns will attract the necessary steps that will make you become a prosperous person. Therefore, think, act and drive yourself as the person you want to be.
A Practical Thing To Do Is:
Sit down, or lie down, relax and imagine for 30 minutes daily the perfect conditions in which your life will develop. Design in your mind the kind of lifestyle you want to have. Create a clear mental picture of yourself, where you life, what your have, the career youll love to pursue, the kinds of people you love to attract, imagine the ways that you can serve society and so on. See these things vividly and in detail in your mind, rejoice with them every day. Get visual aids such as pictures to make them memorable in your mind. The don’tt question whether they’ll become true or not, that’s none of your business. Driven by the dominating thoughts you have in your mind, your reality will draw from these thoughts whether they’re positive or negative. Choose your thoughts wisely.
The Rule of Five
If the Law of Process states you can achieve any goal by breaking it down into small steps, I will show you a nice way you can apply this law. Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, coined the term the rule of five included in Jack Canfield’s The Success Principles (affiliate link). The rule of five means that you have to take five daily actions toward your goal and eventually you will achieve it. Even a block of ice under the sun will melt down, the process is slow, but drop by drop, the ice block melts down completely. The important thing to remember here is this: Celebrate as a success each action that brings you a result toward your main goal, so aim for five daily successes.
The Law of Process Applied to Leadership
According to America’s authority in leadership, John C. Maxwell, leadership develops daily, not in a day. He says that Becoming a leader is a lot like investing successfully in the stock market. If your hope is to make a fortune in a day, you’re not going to be successful. But If you continually invest in your leadership development, letting your assets compound, the inevitable result is growth over time. John clearly exemplifies how the Law of Process works here.
