The Law of Increase
Here are a few thoughts on how you can achieve success all the years of your life.
Be aware that growth and increase are a part of life and all of nature. It is inherent in each of us to desire more. This is not wrong, it is perfectly natural, and the way it should be. You should want to be rich in every department of your life, what do I mean by ‘rich’? Getting rich for you is getting what you want very much. For some it means a bigger income, a larger sum of capital, and that’s fine. You can get whatever you desire without hurting or even competing with any other person.
Unfortunately, the uninformed believe that you can only get ahead in this world at the expense of someone else. This is simply not true. No one can become wealthy in any way without enriching others. Proverbs 13:25 says ‘A generous person will prosper, those who refresh others will also be refreshed.
Getting rich for you could mean obtaining more love, peace of mind, health, wealth, owning the home of your dreams or accomplishing anything else you’ve set your heart upon. Getting rich is obtaining whatever you desire. It’s as simple as that.
Firstly, understand that it’s alright for you to desire what you want. Most human activities are based on a need for increase. Secondly, you need not compete with or deprive anyone. Don’t compete – create! This way you add to the general wellbeing without taking anything away from anyone. Thirdly, do not neglect the things that money cannot buy. What does it cost to give love, respect and consideration to those near you? Very little, just a little extra effort. Yet these things are priceless to those receiving them. Be generous as you find new and better ways to serve. Give more to receive more.
My father taught us that the reward for a job well done, is the opportunity to do more. Jim Rohn said that the market-place determines what you get paid, that to earn more you have to make yourself more valuable to the market-place. Zig Ziglar said, ‘You can have anything you want as long as you help others to get what they want.’
And finally, the Apostle Paul said ‘I know what it’s like to have plenty and what it’s like to have little, in all things I have learn to be content.
To your success
There are two things to aim at in life:
First, to get what you want; and after that, to enjoy it.
Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.
Logan Pearsall Smith.
It is perfectly true as philosophers say, that life
must be understood backwards. But they forget
the other proposition, that life must be lived
forwards. Soren Kierkegaard
