Brian Tracy came with me on a road trip yesterday and one thing that he said really jumped out at me. Basically it was great advice explaining exactly how to succeed by recognizing and applying the Law of Cause and Effect.

I don’t usually take Brian on trips because I typically drive with either my spouse or other people and we often end up socializing. In those instances, Brian never gets a chance to join in the conversation, so I have learned to simply leave him at home.

Yesterday, however, I was traveling alone, so I invited Brian along. The trip was only a couple of hours each way, but I almost wished it could have been across the country because Brian always provides so much down-to-earth insight and inspiration that it’s almost a letdown when I get to where I am going. …

Well, if you know Brian Tracy, you know that his time is more valuable than going on a long road trip with somebody. You will also know that one of his passions is to share the secrets of success with anybody who desires improvement in their life, except, Brian doesn’t call them “secrets.” He says there are no secrets to success; you just need to learn what successful people do and do the same thing. He calls them the Laws of Success.
Law of Cause and Effect
Over the years, by searching for answers to the question of why some people are more successful than other people, why some people have better lives, earn more money, live in beautiful homes and go on lovely vacations, while other people live lives of quiet desperation, Brian has identified a series of success principles. It is these principles that have become the Laws of Success that he shares with other people.

He explains that the “granddaddy” law from which all other laws flow is the Law of Cause and Effect.

How to Succeed With the Law of Cause and Effect

I didn’t take Brian with me physically on yesterday’s road trip, but I did take one of the many Brian Tracy audio programs that I am fortunate to own. This one is The New Psychology of Achievement. In the first session, he introduces the Law of Cause and Effect and how to apply it to your life.

He explains that the one foundational idea that all great achievers eventually stumble onto is this:

“If you change your thinking, you change your life. If you change the cause, you change the effect.”

Phrasing it another way, Brian says, “You become what you think about most of the time.”

He mentions a study that was done a number of years ago where a large group of participants were asked what they thought about most of the time.

The people who were in the top 10% of income and income growth replied that what they thought about most of the time was what they wanted and how they were going to get it. “They think about where they’re going and how to get there, most of the time,” Brian emphasizes.

What about the unsuccessful people? What do they think about most of the time? It turns out they think about what they don’t want, like things they are worried about, things that have happened in the past that have made them upset and angry.

“Especially, they think about who’s to blame for their situation,” says Brian. “Top people think about what they want and how to get it. Average people think about what they don’t want and who’s to blame. And the wonderful thing is this: when you turn your mental search lights on what you want and how to get it, your whole life begins to change for the better.”

That is the Law of Cause and Effect in action and that is exactly how to put it to work for you!

I have highlighted just one small part of the first session in The New Psychology of Achievement. Session 1 also covers a variety of other inspirational principles. There are 12 sessions in total in the program. More details are available on the program information page. Check it out and let Brian Tracy show you how to accelerate your success to a whole new level!
