The Law Of Cause And Effect In Leadership
Updated: Oct 14, 2020
This natural law suggests every cause has a nearly equal effect in intensity. If we make good use of our minds, skills, talents, and time, it will show in our outer lives.
Did you know that scarcely one in a thousand individuals put his or her time anywhere near its potential good use? It’s true.
Imagine what you can accomplish if you were one of these one-in-a-thousand people. Feed your body good food, get decent relaxation and good sleep, learn, develop, and maintain self-control (be responsible and accountable) and you can be everything you want to be. Feed your mind only positive thoughts, clearly define your goals, act every day, and view failures as mere learning experiences. Dwell on your goal’s morning and night with pictures and emotions, as if you have already achieved it. As my wife often reminds me, everything happens for a reason. Life experiences, both good and bad, are necessary for growth. What we make of each determines the life we will have.
One important key to learning is learning to be a good listener and interviewer. No one learns by talking, but by listening. Learn to ask questions and build off those questions. A lot can be learned very quickly from asking the right questions from the right person.
Galatians 3:13 - - Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”
In what sense did Christ become a curse? (3:13) - - When God’s law is broken, it imposes a curse – the judgment of God. When Christ died on the cross – a tree – not only was that the sign of someone who was cursed (Deut. 21:23), but more than that, it was a sign that Christ received God’s punishment for our sin.
Psalm 7: 14 He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. 15He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made. 16The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes down on his own head.
How does God punish sinners? (7:16) - - One consequence of sin is natural: Wickedness tends to boomerang; sinners shouldn’t be surprised when they get caught in their own schemes.
Psalm 9: 15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden. 16The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.
