The Law of Cause and Effect

"Shallow men believe in luck or in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect."
 - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Everyone wants to succeed in this world but only a few are achieving what they dream. Do you ever wonder why this happens? Do you know why so many people fail to achieve so-called legendary lives? If you don't, then you should understand the law of cause and effect.

The law of cause and effect states that every effect has a specific cause and every cause has a specific effect. Let's make it simpler by saying that our living conditions create effects and our reactions to event and people determine how you feel and behave. For every action, there is a reaction. If you think that by continuing the same path you will succeed then you are kindly mistaken because success is not an accident. Who you are today and what you will become tomorrow is an effect caused by your mind. Think of thoughts as a seed which you sow in your mind. When we sow a seed in the soil we don't see anything but after some months and years, one can observe a plant coming out of that soil.
Similarly, when we plant a thought or an idea in our mind, it take time to develop. It depends on you what thoughts you choose to keep in your mind. You will get what you sow. This law is simple yet very powerful. You all know it from the beginning then why you are unable to achieve your dreams?
Because you take everything lightly. You are unable to use this simple idea.

It is correct to say that if you do what other successful people are doing you too can be successful. But people again take it lightly. They try to apply their ideas but after sometime, they try to modify it for their comfort. After some more time they leave it because they are unable to follow it properly and they say that idea does't work. That is the main problem in our minds.

Today is the greatest time for change
If you think you will start tomorrow then rethink. Today is the greatest time to make a change. Today is the greatest time to improve your relationships. Today is the greatest time to exercise. Today is the greatest time to work on your business. Make your today count. If you will leave today then tomorrow will also become today and you will leave it like that. 
What you are today is because of ideas, beliefs, the action you took 5 years back. So, what you will practice today and for long coming years will determine what you will become in the coming year. Thinking is not enough you must act. Because your actions have the power to change the reality. You have got your free will to think and live according to your desires. Don't waste your precious time because today will slip if you will not act.

This law is natural. Don't let this law rule your behavior unconsciously, take advantage of it by becoming aware and by asking some questions for tracking your behavior pattern. Every one of us is unique. We all have different views and beliefs. But we do many things without being aware. So, today become aware and make a small change daily.
