Law of Gestation

Law of Gestation

We know by this time, you may have probably read things about the law of attraction and how it helps you manifest your dreams. So you decided to fill your walls with inspirational quotes, meditated each day, focusing on your goals. But why? Why is everything still almost the same? 

You may have already gone through the process of writing down and having a journal for your goal. Writing daily reminders for yourself, identifying your actions, and looking back on what things to change and remain, but still, nothing becomes clear. You keep reading every day to learn more about things you may have probably missed and tried a lot of things that are supposed to lead you to success. You have developed the mindset. But why does it seem like you’re still standing on the same spot as you were yesterday?

Before you start thinking that the law of attraction is so elusive like catching a leprechaun, read this first.

The law of attraction works, but the same as the other things in this universe, development takes time to manifest. Just like taking care of a baby, you need to give them constant care and attention. But, it doesn’t mean that the more focus you give to your baby, the faster they grow and develop. Everything in this world though filled with vibrations and motions, all undergo the natural phase of development. And the same goes for your ways to your goals.

The reason why achieving goals takes time is the Law of Gestation. It’s a governing Law of the Universe that controls the growth of each life to a natural process. If you may have observed in plants, those which are grown in the unnatural process ends up posing dangers and problems because it defies the natural processes of the universe. 

So, what are you going to do?

A lot of people who did not understand this fully may have started to work their hardest in the beginning. But because they fail to see any significant changes in their lives, they become disappointed, throwing their chances away before even seeing it come to a realization. 

When people dream, they rely their energy on the thoughts of achieving their goals but are not ready to face the force of the universe. Time, space, and everything may be big or small, is governed by universal law. Like a seed that takes time to undergo the gestation period before producing fruits, the same goes for your goals. 

When you are heading for your goal, patience will be your greatest virtue. When traversing the path to success, you need to be armed with patience and understand that growing takes time to yield fruition. That is why you have to believe that it is manifesting in a way that may not be as visible for you. Have faith and trust the law of gestation’s processes in leading you to your goals. Sure, it takes time. How much time? It varies for every person. But make sure to be patient and be persistent towards your goal. 

Specialized Knowledge vs. General Knowledge

Specialized Knowledge vs. General Knowledge

‘Knowledge is power.” A popular context amongst people stating that a person who has more knowledge means that they have greater power. But how do you weigh the knowledge you have? Or how does it become a powerful tool?

Specialized Knowledge 

When a particular person develops their skills in a particular field- engineering, statistics, graphics design, architecture, etc, they acquire specialized knowledge. Specializing in a particular field lets them become a master of their field and may make them known. For example, when we hear the name Steve Jobs, we associate this name to someone particularly good at computer engineering, aside from just being the co-founder of Apple. 

However, focusing on specialized knowledge may also endanger you especially in a competitive market. To master a certain skill, people invested most of their time developing and spending to further their knowledge of a particular field. But what if your skillset suddenly becomes obsolete?

General Knowledge

You’ve probably heard of the term Jack of All Trades. When you are looking for flexibility, these would be the types of people you would find. People more inclined with general knowledge are those people who have a wide diversity of skills. 

However, a person with much flexibility may also be difficult for employers to assign. Because you have a wide skill set with no particular field, employers may find it arduous to find a definite position for you. When you decide on a business, a person with a diverse skillset may find it a bit challenging to work on a certain field.

Which Works Best?

To be honest, there is no particular right or wrong path here. But, according to most businessmen, having specialized knowledge is better than having general knowledge. 

Having specialized knowledge may have its drawbacks but it’s has a lot more to offer. The most common example, and perhaps the most notable, is that most professors are very adept in every course subjects that they are required to teach students. Meaning, they have acquired a lot of general knowledge but were not able to utilize it fully to acquire more money.

With specialized knowledge, however, you can draft a plan of action as you organize your ideas for you to acquire wealth. Thus, what you need to is to learn how to organize and utilize knowledge after it has been earned. 

“…I can summon to my aid men who can answer ANY question I desire to ask concerning the business to which I am devoting most of my efforts. Now, will you kindly tell me, WHY I should clutter up my mind with general knowledge, for the purpose of being able to answer questions, when I have men around me who can supply any knowledge I require?”- Henry Ford while he stood on the witness stand as he proved that he was no ignorant as they claim he is. 

As you may have noticed from the words of Mr. Henry Ford, he emphasized two points: 1. He devoted himself to know more about his business (specialized knowledge), 2. there is no necessity for him to learn about general knowledge if it’s not a necessity for his business. 

A Thankful Heart Makes a Merry Life

A Thankful Heart Makes a Merry Life

Rainbows are the wondrous brush of colors on the sky that has gone through the stormy clouds. It holds up the hope of a new beginning after a hideous adversary. And such is life. 

It’s not the happiness that makes thankful. It’s gratefulness that makes us merry.”

Happiness is a great feeling. But sometimes, too much glee loses our perspective in the tiniest beauty of life. When a person one day has won the lottery, they feel extreme elatedness, saying millions of thanks. But when the feeling of happiness from winning dies down, they start focusing on what they want, what they should have, and how they should spend. Amidst it all, you will one day feel unsatisfied when things are no longer the way you expect it to be- feeling less happy, less grateful.

A grateful heart, however, is more focused on what they have. Thankful for every ounce of rice, to wake up and feel the morning dew, and be able to breathe and see the wondrous creations. Gratefulness is not simply a thank you, it is the feeling of contentment towards things you currently have and less focus on what you don’t have. Happiness is what makes a person contented with they have and can only be achieved by a thankful spirit.

“Gratitude is what makes the best medicine”

 I’m sure you have probably heard about having laughter as the best medicine. Laughter is a result of extreme amusement that emanates from a joyful heart. It is a powerful immune booster that helps us in warding off various types of diseases. And who produces laughter more than those that have a heart that is contented? And who lives a contented life? Those who live with gratitude. Living with a grateful life creates control of anxiety over things you don’t have but others do. 

Take a look at the people living in the slums. Children play in the dirt with smiles on their faces, elder people spend blissful afternoons gossiping over neighbors, laughing at almost anything. A simple life. But have you noticed who gets sick with chronic and harmful diseases such as cancer? Is it those living in the slums or those living in mansions? 

“Gratitude is more than words of thank yous, it’s an act of giving back and accepting everything as a blessing.”

It’s no question that we all experience asperities when perambulating this life’s journey. But the ability to be grateful even while you experience difficulties requires mental toughness.

Do such a person exists? Who in this world can ever be happy with difficulties? 

Acceptance over denial. When we met difficulties, we normally deny the challenges, saying we don’t deserve something like such. But a person who can accept the difficulty as a blessing, it changes your viewpoints in life. You see, having a thankful heart is a dire situation that gives you enlightenment deep within your soul that you can understand the purpose of each adversary, accepting it as a blessing that will prove to be a useful experience in the future.
