There is a school of thought that advocates that life shouldn’t be simplified but instead mankind should appreciate the complexity of life and celebrate it. On one hand, I agree with this philosophy and on the other, I disagree.
I agree that life is complex and should be appreciated and celebrated but on the other hand, I disagree with the notion that it shouldn’t be simplified. Humans by their very nature are designed and programmed to simplified things. This is simply the by-product of their deductive reasoning. They deduct and deduct until they can find a common ground. They deduct until they can generalise. So asking them not to simplify life is asking them to do away with their basic processing ability.
Instead, mankind should be made to use their power of simplifying everything to their advantage and advancement.
With the brain power to simplify everything, people can be taught to understand things in their lives better. Because with this simplifying power of the brain, anyone can be trained to search and find the common theme in any given thing and use that discovery to his or her advantage.
When one has adequately trained his or her mind to simplify all similar occurrences and find a common theme among them, he or she can easily see that, there is a formula behind everything.
And when you understand that, there is a formula behind everything, you can easily use the formula to achieve anything you want in life.
Different Route To The Same Destination
In everything in life, there are always different route to arrive at it. Every route has its own pros and cons but what matters is that they get you to your desired destination at a reasonable time.
If for example, you want to travel from Sydney, Australia to London, United Kingdom. You could fly in via the aeroplane but if you are not in a hurry and depending on how much free time you’ve in your hands, you could get to the same destination via ship. What matters is that you get to London, UK, at a time that is acceptable to you.
In the example, it’s easy for anyone to identify that the common theme is transportation. The mode of transportation could be different but what was common in the possible two scenarios given, are movement from A to B. So if I explain the above example to someone and ask “what’s the formula for going from Sydney, Australia to London, UK?”, I expect the person to say “transportation” and not “catch a flight” or “board a ship”. For if the person cannot identify that the common theme of those two possible scenarios was “transportation“, then if life presents them with a difficulty whereby air transportation is not a possibility, they will simply crumble, forgetting that they could actually board a ship and achieve the same outcome and vice versa.
The same is true for everything you want to achieve in life. The routes could be different but the formula is the same. The formula is the common theme among all the routes to a particular thing.
For example, I can provoke a man into a rage by slapping him for no reason. I can achieve the same outcome by making insulting gestures at him. I can also achieve the same result by telling people false and obnoxious information about him. These are just some of the different routes to the same “destination“. If I ask the average person to give me a formula for provoking anyone based on these scenarios, they might struggle simply because on the surface the scenarios look different but a closer inspection will reveal the similarities in all three.
For you to see the common theme and finally a formula to achieve any outcome, you must first go to the very beginning or you might never notice the common theme. So let’s look at the examples above which outcome was a man provoked into anger.
The first thing in all the three scenarios was (1) – “attention of the man“. In each of the three examples, I had the man’s attention. The second common thing in all the three scenarios was (2) – “direction of my actions“. In all the three examples, my negative actions were all directed towards the man. It was either I was slapping him, making bad gestures at him or spreading false malicious information about him in his presence. The third common thing in all the three scenarios was (3) – “my intention“. In all the three scenarios, my intention was to get a negative reaction from the man.
Base on my deduction and observations from the three scenarios stated above, if you ask me to give you a formula for provoking any man into anger, I would say do the following:
(1) First, get his attention.
(2) Direction all your negative actions towards him.
(3) Be intent on making him angry.
The powerful thing about formula is that, when one of the steps is removed, the outcome is always different. For instance, in the example given about, if I don’t get the man’s attention, directing all my negative action towards him will only make me look strange. In fact, I won’t be able to direct my negative actions towards him without getting his attention.
And if I get his attention and am intent on making him angry but there is no action from me to make this happen, he would be wondering what is wrong with me.
So, a formula is like a three-legged stool. You can sit on it (use it) when all the three legs are there but when one of the legs is missing, it is almost useless.
The same way there is a formula for provoking someone into anger, so also there is a formula for becoming rich, healthy, good speaker, self-control, self-discipline and e.t.c. Everyone might arrive at this through different routes but the formula is usually the same.
If there is something in your life which you want to get rid of, this could anger, smoking or alcohol problem, there is a formula you are applying unconsciously which end product is the problem in your life. You will only notice this formula when you analyse your actions. But the fact is that when you analyse your action you will see a pattern, a formula that takes you from a calm state to a state of pure rage in a short period of time, that’s if anger is the problem you’re struggling with.
The good news is that since you now know that once one of the steps in any formula is removed the expected outcome is never reached. All you have to do is to remove one of the steps and the bad trait will gradually die from simple neglect and lack of action.
The same is applicable to the things you want in your life, apply the formula correctly and you shall get the desired result every time. It’s just like they say in the world of metaphysics; “the formula is never wrong, only it application can be wrong“.
In everything in life, there is always the need to understand what works and what doesn’t. This is a vital thing for everyone to bear in mind. Knowing the formula for becoming rich is great but ignorance of the formula for lack and poverty could be costly to someone who is already rich. This is the main reason some people are rich today, poor tomorrow. This leads us to the next section of this article.
Understand The Formula To Achieve And Not To Achieve
Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. ― Martin Luther King Jr.
An educated person is someone of power. Knowledge of anything gives you the power over that thing. Knowledge of electricity gives you the power to work with electricity without fear. But ignorance of anything makes you weak to that thing. It makes you vulnerable to any attack by that thing.
I have discussed in the preceding section of this article how everything you see in terms of a person character or achievements has a formula behind them. This formula whenever applied correctly always yield the same result. In the majority of instances, people display behaviours without knowing why they seem to do it.
They have never actually taken the time to analyse their behaviour. No time has been dedicated to thinking about there actions, so they carry on like normal. They rationalise this which statements such as, “that’s just who I am” or “I am just like that or this”. Someone who is usually “lucky,” thinks he or she was born lucky and the person who is “unlucky” believes he or she must have been born with the worse “luck” in the world. A simply analyses would have shown these two people that, there are formulas which the both of them are unconsciously applying which is getting them the result they are getting. So, if the always “lucky” person applies the formula that the “unlucky” person seems to apply unconsciously, he or she will suddenly become the most “unlucky” person in the world and vice versa.
This is just a simple way to tell you that all things are possible once you know and understand the formula for each occurrence. A rich man can suddenly become poor if he ignorantly or unconsciously applies the formula for lack and poverty. In the same manner, a poor person can suddenly become rich and famous if he applies the formula for being wealthy and prosperous.
People don’t just become rich, healthy, loving, kind, evil, addicts, depressed or great. This is a science and formula that leads to this outcome. Some people will argue that some are born rich, healthy and loving. Yes. Some people are born into rich families and a lot of people were born healthy but these are not an exception to the formula. Like I said at the beginning of this article, there are several ways to arrive at the same destination but at the end of the day, when you analyse them all, you will notice a common theme, this common theme is where the formula is generated from. A lot of people were born into a wealthy family but they are still poor while a lot of people were born into poverty-stricken homes and they are rich and famous today.
So, what am trying to make clear here is the fact that, there is a formula for everything in life. And whatever you want is attainable once you are (1) willing to do what is required to attain it and (2) obedient to the requirements of the formula.
In the same manner, the knowledge and understanding of the things you want are important, so also is the knowledge of the things you do not want in your life. Ignorance is not bliss. Ignorance of the law of gravity will not omit you of its effect. If you jump off a tall building without knowing that gravity will pull you down, does the fact that you are ignorant of this law of gravity prevents the force of gravity from pulling you to death? No. It still applies to you regardless.
So, it falls on you to know the formula and laws of the things you want and the things you do not want in your life. Knowledge is power. After you have acquired the knowledge of the things you want and do not want, focus all your attention on the things you want not the things you do not want because some of the fundament laws that govern our Universe states that “energy flows to wherever attentions goes” and “whatever you focus on, will expand and manifest in your life“. So, focus on what you want most.
I personally hated not having enough money, so acquired knowledge on how to become rich by reading a book by Wallace D. Wattles titled The Science of Getting Rich. This book was really helpful in helping acquire the life I want but I also learned about what causes lack and how to avoid it. But I hardly ever think of what causes lack and poverty. I focus my attention on prosperity, riches, abundance and wealth. This is where my energy flows to and this area of my life is constantly expanding.
The fact is that you can become whatever you want to be. Anything is literally possible. This is a formula for being great, rich, charismatic, healthy and e.t.c. Whatever you want to become, the information to become that thing is out there in book and audio format. And also, if your life is currently a mess, there is a formula you are unconsciously applying that is giving you the results you are getting.
My advice to you today is this, list what you want and do not want. Acquire the necessary knowledge on both. After this, focus your attention on the things you want in your life. This is the sure path to success in life. I have used this method and it worked for me. Millions have used the same method to great success, so, you actually have no excuse for not doing it.
Life is simple once you know that, if you apply any formula correctly, you will always get the desired result. So, just apply the formula for the things you really want.
