Would you say that there are no longer any secrets to accumulating wealth but rather what is unknow is the amount of effort and wisdom it requires to accomplish these desires. This post is one that was inspired by Brian Tracy and it taught me The Law of Accumulation—everything accumulates over time.
So what is The Law of Accumulation? The Law of Accumulation says that everything accumulates over time, like the sands of time in an hourglass. It all starts with one drop of sand and then another and another and before you know it the glass is empty.
The Law of Accumulation says that everything that is worthwhile in life is an accumulation of thousands of tiny efforts of sacrifices that no one ever sees and or appreciates.
There are three areas where The Law of Accumulation is important. I’m going to give more information on the three areas but just keep in mind that what it basically says is that Everything Counts.
1. LEARN WHAT YOU NEED TO LEARN – Inorder for any expert to become valuable in the marketplace he had to invest a great amount of time in acquiring his knowledge base. Your body of knowledge is a result of hundreds, perhaps thousands of small pieces of information. To advance to a level of expertise you must be disciplined and persistent. Though you may not see progress right away you must have faith that your efforts will begin to bear fruit.
2. Build Momentum – The “Momentum Principle” is being applied here. Starting the habit will be the hardest but as you persist, you will find that it gets easier and easier to continue. “As your savings accumulate, you develop a momentum that moves you more rapidly toward your financial goals.”
3. Do not focus on the end game, focus on the beginning – The second area where The Law of Accumulation works deals with money. You begin by taking any amount of money you have to start right now and begin to save it. When you begin to save money, it sets up a force field of energy that triggers The Law of Attraction. In the process, you begin to attract even more money and as your money grows and grows, it triggers the compound effect allowing you to turn your pennies into a fortune. “By the yard it’s hard, but by the inch, it’s a cinch.” This means you must start somewhere, therefore, just focus on getting started. It’s ok to start slow but just get started sometime and somewhere.
So as you now see everything counts. We basically need to get out of our comfort zone, do the things that we need to do in order to gain the experiences that we need to grow and be able to earn the money that we desire.
Resolve to become a master in one subject. Decide to work toward them one step at a time. The first step is the hardest and you must discipline yourself to avoid falling back into old habits.
The biggest takeaway is. It’s is not just the parts that you want to count that matters. It all matters, the truth is the truth. You can’t pick the parts that you want to count because you are going to be held accountable anyway. Focus on the beginning. Focus on what you can control. You are going to come up with a million excuses why you cannot do this.
It’s kinda like a credit and debit system. The things that you do well, you get credit for and it puts you a step closer to achieving your goals in life. On the other hand, what we manage poorly, moves us away from our goals and puts us on the debit side of attaining your goals. So as a result, everything counts nothing is neutral, you are either gaining or you loosing there is no standing still.
The Law of Accumulation is incremental and the cumulative effort can be enormous. To attain our wildly audacious goals we must take risks and try a variety of ways to attain them.
To get as much experience in your field of study you must start sometime, time will pass anyway, and by making a commitment and starting immediately you can build your knowledge base in the area that will help you to arrive at financial freedom and allow you to soar above your peers.
My question for you is? What’s the most recent Universal Law that you have learned or is now mastering? Is there one you think I should make a priority. You may leave a comment in the section below.
