THE LAWS AND PRINCIPLES
TO MAKE YOUR LIFE VASTLY MORE REWARDING
Cannot solve a problem at same level of thinking that created it.
The Law Of Cause And Effect
Law Of Control
Laws Of Leverage
Law of Resource Use
Law Of Seeing/Creating
Laws Of Solution
A master of life will spend time reviewing these principles and implementing them one at a time into his/her life.
ONE CANNOT SOLVE A PROBLEM AT THE SAME LEVEL OF THINKING THAT ONE CREATED IT.
Therefore, we must change that level of thinking. Otherwise, we are doomed to repeating what didn't work - and who would be stupid enough to believe that?
Insanity is believing you can do the same thing over and over and over and get a different result!
There is no effect without a cause. HERE IS NO EFFECT WITHOUT A CAUSE.
Results are the true, and only, indicators of what you are doing/causing in life. There are no extra credits just for being "good". .
To change the results, change the causes. You can never change a symptom, without changing the cause!
If you're not getting the result you want, look at the 1 to 3 top causes, and do the "opposite"! Or analyze the cost effect chain.
(See and read the link in this section's title.)
___ "Got it". I will use the cause and effect chain to analyze what happened and to determine what point(s) at which to change it.
First, invest your efforts into controlling what you have the most direct control over - which is most often yourself.
By logic, you can cause more results if you have greater control.
Next, influence what you can that is major, knowing that only some of it will payoff.
Then stop all attempts to control what you do not have power over. Identify what that is.
Identify how you can fill your needs directly, completing yourself, so that you don't need anyone to "fix you" or "complete" you. Spend no time in manipulating others to fill your needs.
The illusion of control is basically a left over childhood belief where we think we have "magical" powers over others
__ Got it. I read the link. I will drop all low control and hopeless control activities and focus only on high control items!
A lever simply lifts something further and higher with no more effort.
__ Got it. I will use leverage where I can, as often as is feasible and most productive.
LAW OF RESOURCE USE
Become skilled at accessing, motivating, and/or utilizing resources and you'll be able to move the world (or at least mountains). The power of partnership in any way will allow you to progress 2 to 100+ times faster and/or more. This is such a high payoff skill that we focus on creating it.
Other laws and principles underlying the laws of leverage will also be visited.
__ Got it. I shall learn and develop what I need to do properly take advantage of this law.
THE GRATITUDE PRINCIPLE
"Your future is what you appreciate today."
- Dan Sullivan
Even people who pride themselves on being "humble" and grateful tend to not have developed this to full potential. It is one of the greatest principles, with proven effectiveness over and over, yet people fail to heed it and build it into their lives!
Though this is the topic of a supposedly business type book it is worth getting for your further development of this vital skill: www.strategiccoach.com. See the written summary pieces in the Gratitude section of the sites: Gratitude
__ Got it. I will do something in this daily (at least listing or reciting off 3 things or happenings that I am grateful for.
Few people fully utilize this, one of the most powerful and most motivating - when you do it right and completely.
Obviously, one has to first "see" what one wants before it is created. Most people have heard or read: "What you can conceive and believe, you can achieve." (Napoleon Hill, methinks)
This is true, but not in the mystical way many people attribute to it.

__ Got it. Even though it seems to be something extra, I will do it as I see that it has many benefits over the long term, and even some in the short term.
THE LAWS OF SOLUTION
"All those things that oppose our goals are actually the raw material for achieving them."
__ Got it. I will follow the systems that the above link leads me to. I will not let problems go unsolved and I will solve them in the most effective, straight forward way using the forms and checklists made available on the central site.
