Many of us grew up with the rigid belief that achieving success requires relentless struggle and desperate striving. As a result, even upon achieving many of our goals, we may have ended up feeling exhausted, and wondering if this is all there is to life.
Deepak Chopra addresses these ideas in his transformational book and film, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams. He provides a clear explanation of each of these principles, and how to tap into their unlimited power.
I have briefly outlined the laws below, as written on his website, and included a video clip of them as well:
The Law of Pure Potentiality
Take the time to be silent, meditate and just BE. Silently witness the intelligence within every living thing. Practice non-judgment.
The Law of Giving
Today, bring whoever you encounter a gift: a compliment or flower. Gratefully receive gifts. Keep wealth circulating by giving and receiving care, affection, appreciation and love.
The Law of Karma
Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind. Choosing actions that bring happiness and success to others ensures the flow of happiness and success to you.
The Law of Least Effort
Accept people, situations, and events as they occur. Take responsibility for your situation and for all events seen as problems. Relinquish the need to defend your point of view.
The Law of Intention and Desire
Inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment. Make a list of desires. Trust that when things don’t seem to go your way, there is a reason.
The Law of Detachment
Allow yourself and others the freedom to be who they are. Do not force solutions—allow solutions to spontaneously emerge. Uncertainty is essential, and your path to freedom.
The Law of Dharma or Purpose in Life
Seek your higher Self. Discover your unique talents. Ask yourself how you are best suited to serve humanity. Using your unique talents and serving others brings unlimited bliss and abundance.
