5 Laws Of Stratospheric Success

It is natural for us, as humans, to always search for shortcuts. We always seek the faster track, we always seek the secret to success. In this article, I’ll talk about the 5 Laws Of Stratospheric Success from the book The Go-Giver. I highly recommend that you give this book a read because it is a mindset shifter, but it’s a really quick read. I personally have read this book multiple times, because it is so valuable as well as so much fun to read. It is written in the form of a novel, so you can actually identify with the main character and understand his situation that might be very much relatable to your situation at the moment. As I have already mentioned, it is a very short read. For those of you who are faster readers, you’ll probably finish the book in less than 2-3 hours. However, these 3 hours can change the way you see success. Now, let’s look at some of the value bombs from the book!

 

The Law Of Value

According to the first law, our true worth is determined by how much more we give in value than we take in payment. This is very much applicable in the business world, but also in your personal life. As I have mentioned in one of our articles where I talk about some strategies to improve your relationships, people should leave you happier than they were when they came. This goes for any situation. You want to give in value as much as you can without expecting much in return. When you give, you also attract. This is the true power of giving. Give as much as you can and don’t expect much in return and you’ll be surprised how you’ll start attracting awesomeness into your life (in any form you wish).

The Law Of Compensation

This law states that your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them. This should be a no-brainer. However, there are many who look to gain from people. There are many who look to serve others only when it benefits them. It is said that it is our nature to be self-centred and “rational” when it comes to making choices. However, many great economists like Richard Thaler who focus on the question of rationality and human beings argue that we are actually not as rational as we thought. For more info about this specific area, take a look into the book called The Nudge. At the end of the day, whether it is natural or not doesn’t matter. The bottom line is, the more people you serve and the better you serve them, the higher your income will be and the better your life will be.

The Law Of Influence

Through this law, the authors of the book argue that your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first. I strongly believe that real success does not come from materialistic things. It comes from within and from the number of people you’ve helped to live the life they want to live. In other words, you need to focus on the interests of others, help them reach their goals and you will gain influence, a following and you will reach the top of the Maslow’s pyramid of needs and wants. The true definition of success is the number of people you have helped live a better life. The greatest leaders are so great because they serve others greatly.

The Law Of Authenticity

The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself, period. I always talk about focusing on yourself first, growing yourself first. If you make it happen within, without will be simple. If you learn to grow yourself and if you understand that you are capable of anything you set your mind to, you will nail this law. When people ask, what is it that you have to offer? Let me tell you, the most valuable thing you have to offer is YOU.

The Law Of Receptivity

The final law of success from this book states that the key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving. You are there to give, but so are other people. There is a universal cycle that runs with no stopping. Don’t break it. In order for all the other laws to work, you also have to be willing to receive. Don’t be ashamed of receiving the value others are offering to you. Don’t break the cycle of giving and receiving.

Mastermind Learning Technique​

Many of you reading this are students and if not, I strongly stand behind the saying that we all should be life-long learners. We should always be striving to learn more, to educate ourselves not only in terms of academic education but also in terms of life education, which includes concepts ranging from the subconscious mind to financial literacy. Thus I believe that people like Robert Kiyosaki or books like The Secret or The Power of Subconscious Mind should have a place in the lives of all of you. In this article, I want to reveal one of the most effective methods to learn quickly and easily with minimum effort but maximum result. I have been using this technique for a very long time and I can say that it works perfectly. I strongly recommend that you give it a try!

Learning/forgetting Curve

The human brain is an exceptional memory tool, more complex but also more effective than the most modern computers of the present. It is the most effective computer on Earth. However, even the smartest computer has no use if we don’t know how to use it. Our brains work in a specific way, which we can take great advantage of. I’ll share a curve that represents the way our brain retains information. On the Y axis, you have the amount and the quality of information retained and on the X axis, you have time. You can see that we always forget the info we put in, but the more often and the more regularly we repeat learning the same information, the longer it takes for us to forget it (which is represented by the lower and lower steepness of the curve as it proceeds with time). If you keep repeating this process, you’ll eventually retain the information for years, if not a lifetime. Imagine moving to a new city. When you see the streets once, you will not remember where to go next time. But after passing through these streets for the hundredth time, you will have no problem with the directions there.

Utilise What You’ve Just Learned About

Knowing all this, we can derive many useful learning techniques. In this article, I want to talk about 2 of the techniques I personally use. The first one is the utilisation of smart apps that account for the learning and forgetting curves and the second one is the utilisation of our sleep and the functioning of our subconscious mind during that time.

Anki

This app is excellent for the retention of any information ranging from graphical, economic or business information to language information such as words or idioms. I personally use this app to practice and learn Chinese vocab. I find it very useful because it works on the bases of flashcards. It involves many combinations and many options that allow you to personally customise its functions according to your needs. As I mentioned above, it accounts for the ways our brain retains information. Thus you don’t have to worry about working out your own intervals, as these are already included in the app. Of course, if you want to customise those, you can.

Utilise Your Sleep!

The way our conscious and subconscious minds work is indeed tremendously interesting. This technique is something that has helped me learn Chinese and go through IB with a very good result. In essence, you utilise the fact that your subconscious mind works during your sleep. The way this works is that before you go to sleep, you take 10-15 minutes to go over what you want to learn. Then you go to sleep and when you wake up you do the same thing. Your brain consumes and retains the information during your sleep. When you wake up and review the information, you’ll realise that you actually know it as if you’ve just read it. This is something that people from many areas of life utilise. For instances, there are many great examples of people learning how to play an instrument, struggling to play a song in the evening and playing it almost perfectly after waking up. The way our subconscious mind works is truly amazing. Utilise it!

The #1 Killer Or The #1 Booster Of Success

In the last half year, I’ve been listening to a lot of positive audio talks created by successful entrepreneurs who have not only succeeded themselves but who also raised numerous leaders who could follow in their footsteps. The question I used to ask myself quite often is: “What do these guys and gals have in common?” You might be asking yourself the same question as well, which is the reason why I decided to write about this topic today. In this article, I want to talk about probably one of the most important concepts that can either kill your success or take it to another level. Let’s talk self-image today!

What Is It?

Self-image is something we all need to develop in our lives for multiple purposes. It is something that not only gives you the confidence to take action, but it gives you the confidence to even start thinking about the action you are taking. Self-image is the level of your self-believe at a given time. The way you see yourself ultimately determines the extent to which you can dream, thus self-esteem can serve as a booster to your success, or it can completely kill it.

Why is this so beautiful? Because you decide. It might sound like a cliché, but you are the one who ultimately decides how you see yourself. You’re the one who decides how others can influence your self-image. Do you care about what others think about you? If so, you’re giving out a tremendous portion of the power that should be only yours. You are giving out the power to scale your dream.

How Can I Take Control?

As I mentioned in the introduction, every person who has succeeded to a greater extent has a high level of self-image. They believe that they are amazing and that they can achieve whatever goal they set for themselves. This is the ultimate characteristic of successful people. So what are the methods these people used to achieve that level of self-esteem?

The Power Of The Subconscious Mind, The Law Of Attraction

They spoke their goals into reality. This is the best way to boost your self-image. Autosuggestion and thought control. Autosuggestion is a technique that allows you to control your subconscious mind and thus your thoughts and feelings over the long-term. If you want to read more on this topic, check out this article where I talk about this method in detail. Now, don’t misunderstand – when I talk about thought control, I don’t mean some crazy 1984 telescreen mind manipulation, what I mean is taking control of your own thoughts. It means listening to your feelings that signalise whether what you’re thinking is positive or negative and cutting negative thoughts by shifting your focus on the positive things in your life. Take control!

The Power Of External Influence

You are affected by other people’s opinions whether you like it or not. You can only control the extent of that influence. Make sure you surround yourself with the people who raise your self-image, who are supportive and who are looking to grow alongside you. I have published an article on the topic of external influences a while ago. In that article, I talk about how your external environment affects your state of mind and your growth.

Scale Your Success!

Utilise the fact that you now understand what your self-image can do for you. Work on growing yourself, speak your thoughts into reality, improve the way you see yourself and see your goals growing as well. The better your self-image, the greater your dreams. The greater your dreams, the greater your growth and achievement. Fight for yourself, you deserve it!

The Universal Secret

When we take a look at modern society, there is only a bunch of people who “run the world.” They’re the people who own the majority of the world’s wealth, they’re the top 1%. How come there is only such a limited amount of people who are “winning” in their life? They must know something the rest doesn’t. They must have figured out something the rest of the world is not aware of. Something special. They understand the secret, they understand the law of attraction. In this article, I will give you a short introduction to the law that changes lives, make sure you don’t miss it!

History of the law

This “universal secret” has been well known to people ever since ancient times. In The Secret, Rhonda Byrne talks about the old Babylonians and the way they have utilised the law of attraction to create one of The Seven Wonders of the world, The Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The law has been practised ever since we, as human species, were around. It has helped people reach greatness for centuries, so why shouldn’t it work for us? Let’s get into the law itself.

The Universal Secret

The Law of Attraction is something always present in our lives. Everything we do has a certain impact on the way the law works for us. The short version of the explanation of the law is – You attract what you are becoming. Now make sure to pay attention to the tense. What you’re becoming, in other words, where you’re heading is more important than who you are today. It is the direction that matters, not your current situation. This underlines the importance of the concept of progress, rather than perfectionism. If you’re a perfectionist, you won’t get much stuff done simply because you will either get stuck on one thing for a long time, or you will be afraid to take action since you might not finish the task perfectly. Focus on who you want to become and you will attract similar kind of people, material and results into your life.

My Experience

I have personally experienced the immense power of the law when I got introduced to the business I am building now. What happened was – I started reading loads of entrepreneurial books, self-development books and more generally books focused on financial freedom. Then me and my friend decided to start our blog and our Instagram page. Through all of this, I have met my current business partners and mentors. You can see how I knew from the beginning that as long as I work hard and focus on my growth, I would discover something that would help me get where I wanted to be. So I worked hard to grow myself because I also understood that in order to see the opportunity, I would have to have a much greater mindset than I had before. Thanks to all that, I successfully identified the opportunity and here I am, building my financial freedom. Law of Attraction!

The Unacknowledged Reality

We live in a world where it’s sometimes hard to see reality as it is. This is due to many reasons, such as our curricular systems, culture or the “general truths” that are become less and less true when you look at them closely. One of these “truths” is that your IQ determines how successful you are as it allows you to study better, get better marks and thus get a better job. To make my position clear and straightforward, that is simply not true. In this article, I want to talk about the importance of our emotional intelligence (EQ) and how it provides us with enormous benefits in many areas of life.

What Is Emotional Intelligence?

EQ is something that most people ignore, which might be the greatest mistake of their life. The physical source of our EQ is the communication between our emotional and rational “brains.” Our brains are hardwired to give our emotion an upper hand. However rational you are, if you don’t understand your emotions, you are in a great disadvantage in every area of your life. According to the book Emotional Intelligence 2.0, most people with an average IQ, but a high EQ outperform those with high IQ and lower EQ. This is because good decisions require far more than factual knowledge. They are made using self-knowledge and emotional mastery when they’re needed most. Ever since we’re young, we’re taught rationality, which essentially means that we’re taught to grow our IQ. But IQ is actually not very likely to grow during our lives anyways. What we completely ignore is our EQ, which has a huge potential as it is something that can be developed (as opposed to IQ).

Emotions

Our emotions are derivations of five core feelings: happiness, sadness, anger, fear, and shame. It is a fact that these 5 emotions are the core influencers of our decisions as our first reaction to an event is always an emotional one. When you learn to understand how you can control your emotions, you’ll also understand how your emotions affect your performance, how you can control and break the transition between emotional states or how you can influence others through your emotional expressions. Learn about your emotions and a whole new world of possibilities will unfold in front of your own eyes.

So How Does Knowing My EQ Help Me?

If you’re still wondering why should you care, let me give you some numbers. According to the book, EQ accounts for 58% of performance in all jobs. This means that most of your tasks are based on something you can choose to develop or to ignore. Which way is the correct one is up to your choice. The link between EQ and earnings is so direct that every point increase in EQ adds $1,300 to an annual salary. Further, EQ is the single strongest driver of leadership and excellence. Still think that you can afford to ignore your EQ? 

Factors Of EQ

Your EQ consists of 2 fundamental areas – personal competence and social competence. Personal competence includes self-awareness and self-management. Self-awareness is very much your ability to accurately perceive your own emotions at the moment and understand your tendencies across situations. Your self-management is your ability to use your awareness of your emotions to stay flexible and direct your behaviour positively. Based on these 2 factors, you can very effectively control your own personal emotions and their influence on your behaviour. The other side of the coin, social competence, consists of social awareness and relationship management. Social awareness is your ability to accurately pick up on emotions in other people and understand what is really going on with them. Relationship management is your ability to use your awareness of your own emotions and those of others to manage interactions successfully. You can see that these two factors help you control and affect your environment, the people around you. Focus on these 4 specific areas of your EQ and you will see a huge boost in your general life success.
