THE ELEMENTARY "PHYSICS OF LIFE"
TO BE LIFE-SUCCESSFUL,
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A ROCKET SCIENTIST
BUT YOU DO HAVE TO KNOW VERY ELEMENTARY PHYSICS
WHAT WILL ELEMENTARY PHYSICS DO FOR ME?
It'll get you operating in reality, which will help you do what works to get what you want - and cause you to stop operating from some not so functional beliefs and some very-not-true explanations of how things work.
Every one of these physics principles apply to you in real life.
And these are part of the reminder that "and then a miracle happens" does not fill a missing piece in what is necessary to cause something - and it blows away the idea that "somehow it will happen".
THE LAWS OF LIFE PHYSICS
I will state the elementary, simple law of physics and then relate it to life so that the life version might be called "the laws of life physics."
You've heard these before probably, and many places, but you did not heed them - or you would be massively successful right now (or soon).
These laws are the immutable laws of physics. They don't change (though we can misunderstand them sometimes). The universe simply works this way.
THE UNIVERSE IS PHYSICAL (THAT'S IT!)
The universe is physical.
It consists of matter and energy, with one coming from or going to the other. This means in life that there are no mysterious spirits or mystical entities floating around, even though people have come up with that to "explain" certain happenings. (Discussion: The Believing Brain.)
Everything is strictly mechanical, meaning everything operates within the mechanics of physics. The Law Of Attraction is, in the broad versions I've heard, bullbleep - one cannot merely think of something and have the physical thing "manifest" itself. There must be action in between and the results will follow the laws of physics, period.
The universe is entirely objective (not capable of being subjective). It does not care about you, nor does it have a personality or any "agency" (intention). The Law Of Attraction will not make it "more friendly" nor cause the universe to get you something; only you can cause that. You must get it - there are no shortcuts around doing what is necessary. (Nor will a mythical figure get it for you.) (Discussion is in: The Believing Brain.)
There is no such thing in actual existence that says the universe "should" be different or do any particular thing. It either does something or it doesn't. One best would operate from doing "what works" and not doing "what doesn't work". There is no good and bad nor right and wrong in existence in reality, though we make it up - the only criteria is workability.
EVERYTHING MUST HAVE A CAUSE
The universe strictly operates in cause and effect. There can be no effect without a cause. And there are always, always, always "causal chains" - which are sequential, with one cause causing an effect which then causes the next effect - and so on. (The Laws Of Cause And Effect - They Work Backwards And They Work Forwards - you can go "backward" on a chain to figure out the cause, so you can cure that rather than repeatedly have to deal with the symptoms. This is part of what you would do to Live Life As A Life Champion.)
If one can predict what result the causal chain will end at, and that result is not what you desire, it is most effective to stop it at the earliest possible point, as it will save energy and possibly some damage along the way. Treating the "symptoms" of a problem may work to lower the pain of the effect, but what works best is to go earlier in the chain and to "cure the cause".
All physical movements will have a physical effect. Listening to loud disharmonic music will affect the functioning of the mind, causing some symptoms of some sort of mental illness (dysfunctioning or lower functioning). (Music And Its Effects On Our Bodies And Our Brains.) Depression is a "physical phenomenon", just one that occurs in the brain - but it can be cured through physical actions besides medication.
ENERGY AND "POWER" - AND RESULTS
Energy creates movement and can impel matter into movement. Without energy in life, one cannot impel "movement" (results) in life very well. Therefore, energy must be produced, to have it available, and is not optional, even when you think you are tired (per the-not-necessarily-accurate body signals). If you fail to produce sufficient energy, you fail to produce enough movement to get what you want in life. (Never allow yourself to stay in a lower energy state.) Power is energy successfully applied to go in a specific direction (toward a result/effect). If energy is strictly applied to one object in one direction, that object will move faster. In life, the direction is always intended to be toward a desired result (which could be to get away from or reduce an undesired result).
If you do not decide a very desirable direction to go (towards what you want), then you will not be very powerful, as power is defined as the ability to get the results you want in life. You cannot, in life, do as well as you'd like without applying the power principles, which would require you to learn about "productivity" - which is the science of how to produce more desired results per amount of time and effort.
Going off-direction (even the wrong direction) and following diversions are a super-waste of effort. Much of that can be stopped with using the 90 minute segment strategy and basic planning. Developing "self-discipline" to follow the "path" (a "disciple" is a follower of "the path") - and to get back on the path. You must first decide what you want in life - or you have no, or very little, hope of getting it! So you must at least have this part of your LifePlan determined very, very clearly and written out. See LifePlan Contents and link into "Key Life Goals", "Master List Of Goals", and "The DreamBook' along with "My Ideal Life Workbook" - this is a carpenter's rule exercise: "Measure twice, cut once!" Don't redecide when it is too late - do it intensely upfront and you'll save alot of "misdirection" of energy!!!! Start to live the 80/20 life and you'll find life so much more rewarding, so much less effortful, non-stressful, and so much happier!
THE LAWS OF MOVEMENT
An object will keep going in a straight line unless acted upon by another force. (No miracle will intervene without that.) There can be an "outside force", such as someone successfully persuading you that you should learn more about life, that can make a huge difference, because people will otherwise find this to be true: Your Path Is Your Only Path Attainable - and it will continue until there is more true knowledge (which acts as a force) such that the path will be changed. There can also be an "inside force" that is outside the normal path of the primitive brain. That force would be the mindset that it is valuable to intentionally keep on introducing new knowledge into one's life on an avid basis. See The Fixed Mindset Versus The Growth Mindset -The Defensive What's Wrong With Me Versus The What Do I Need To Learn Now Approach. This is the most significant thing you can do in life, where you are perpetually bending the path upward! It takes little energy to keep an object going. In life, we will be foolish if we let something already started just dissipate into nothingness. During the day, we should not "stop" or allow ourselves to dissipate into feeling not so energetic. Instead, we can keep using The Pause (or the break) to create Instant Energy From Something Good!
The Law Of Inertia: An object at rest will stay in place until an outside energy force gets it moving. Somehow we humans assume that if we fall into the inertia of apathy, lethargy, not feeling energetic, or waiting for our body or primitive to do something for us, we are somehow caught in it - and that we cannot be "cause in the matter", that we are prisoners (victims) of inertia. We need not be in the inertia of inertia, as we have the ability to marshal a force sufficient to launch our rocket into space.
Notice that nothing in the universe goes from a standstill to a high speed (unless hit by a very large object). It must go through a gradual speeding up to gain sufficient momentum. In the case of a rocket overcoming a superstrond opposite force (gravity), that ramp up is so fast we think that it is immediate rather then just speeded up; notice that the rocket moves only after the fuel has been ignited for a bit of time.
Of course, a plane takes off, building speed as it goes, until it reaches the "tipping point" where it has sufficient lift. The learning curve follows a similar ramping up, accumulating energy path. And the learning curve is definitely true of skill-building. In skill building we also see that we will make errors simply because we have not yet learned how to do something correctly yet - so an error is simply a "not yet knowing something" phenomena - and it must be continued until it is known. That is why it is accurate to see that a mistake is an opportunity to learn (as part of our take-off), because the mistake indicated that we did not yet "sufficiently know" what to do yet - it is not "fault" we are talking about here, just not yet knowing something! It is vital that you know that it is not personal fault, for if you think it is, you will waste important energy on that false concept - you'll be misdirecting your energy. Habits are "skills", so they need a learning curve (lift off time), but so many people fail to allow the time - so they never get lift off. Learning how to get new habits and implement them is a key skill in itself, and, like other skills, we need to implement a process that is successful. In this case, we must follow the mechanics of repetition but also The Skill And The Process For Effective Change. Master this and your life will be incredibly sweet - and as the new habits come into place and become automatic, life will become more and more effortless, but with more and more rewards. (And effortless results are a very good use of energy. Habits just need a little bit of added energy only once in a while - and they keep going and going and going, like the Energizer rabbit!) Developing a few very powerful habits and a bunch of small habits is a prime vehicle to having much life-power and much success - it is a "secret" to success, though most people ignore it because it is not miraculous or quick - but pretty soon you'll see that you've got incredible momentum in life! I would say that without doing this it is unlikely you will be successful in life. We all know that an object slows down due to friction or any opposing force. Friction in life is the equivalent of resistance, where we want to go toward something great but we apply force the other way, such as the force of fear - and fear is a "go the other way" force. Learning how to diffuse fear into its actual smallness is a key "skill", though it is based on the application of another skill called "Effective Thinking". When you learn this you'll be able to Differentiate As To What Is A Real Threat and to diffuse or "proper size" fears, so they are mostly "deminimus".
