5 Laws to Improve Your Life
The Law of Value: “Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.” That is not the normal wisdom of the world. Life is about giving without any concern to what we will get in return.
The Law of Compensation: “Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.” Basic customer service 101 right? Not exactly. We need to serve, and over-serve, and continue to serve people. We need to do it joyfully and find ways to do it more. It is about building a servant’s heart. It is all about relationship.
The Law of Influence: “Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.” When we put aside our own interests and focus on others, good things happen. If we truly want to influence, and that is what leadership really is all about, then we have to learn to put others first. We have to focus on their interests.
The Law of Authenticity: “The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.” In our world today, authenticity is sort of a lost art. People don’t want to let anyone know what is really happening. They don’t want the world to see their warts and shortcomings, they just want everyone to see the glossy image of themselves on Facebook or Instagram, even though we all know that is probably not reality.
The Law of Receptivity: “The key of effective giving is to stay open to receiving.” We need to learn to receive. Too often we don’t want to let anyone help us – we resist their efforts to give. But this stymies the cycle of giving and can prevent those who want to give from doing so. We have to receive what others want to give so the cycle can occur.
