Law of Accumulation
So while we are on this journey to help our money feel better, you may have run into the concept of the Law of Attraction. However, there are quite a number of laws that work on our minds to help us achieve the life that we want and the Law of Accumulation is one that we will consider.
Motivational speaker, Brian Tracy explains, “Every great financial achievement is an accumulation of hundreds of small efforts and sacrifices that no one ever sees or appreciates. The achievement of financial independence will require a tremendous number of small efforts on your part.”
So the Law of Accumulation is really the Jamaican concept of “every mickle mek a muckle.” And the concepts of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) come in to support the build out of what you want to achieve. Because it is not just doing the tiny things every day that may trip us up. It is having a vision of exactly what we want. Working with a life coach or counselor will help you to determine (a) who you are and then (b) what you want to achieve. With the support of NLP you can then progress to understanding what you will hear, feel, see and experience when you have actually achieved your goal. And then you will be further empowered to answer “what next?”
Life coach William Ballard adds, “the law of accumulation can apply to all areas of life. If there is neglect in your personal, spiritual or professional growth, you can rest assured that decline in these areas is sure to follow. However, if you attend to the areas that are faulty in your business or personal life, and begin to accumulate by performing small task of management and maintenance in the areas that are not what they should be, you can rest equally assured that your home (business) is strong enough to stand for another year.”
That means if you accept that this law is in fact a true law, then once you set your goal, everything you do counts toward reaching that goal. Both good and bad can be opportunities to progress to where you want to go. Industrialist Henry Ford said, “Failure is merely an opportunity to more intelligently begin again.”
