How the Law of Compensation Can Make You Rich

 

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that each person is compensated in like manner for that which he or she has contributed. This is often referred to as the Law of Compensation or the Law of Cause and Effect. Basically, it's saying that you get back what you give, whether that's a lot or a little. If you want to increase how much you earn or how rewarding an activity is, you have to increase the value of your contribution, either in the amount of work you do or in the unique advantage your product or service offers.

Really successful people take it one step farther and follow the Law of Overcompensation. This law says that great success comes to those who always put in more than they take out. They do more than they're paid for and look for opportunities to exceed expectations. And because they always overcompensate, they always get over-rewarded with esteem and financial gain.

The important thing to remember is that these laws always work and are always in effect, even when no one is looking. To test this for yourself, think about things you can do to increase your value to others, then do them. Over the next few days, months or years, you'll notice that your efforts are ALWAYS repaid - in many cases, beyond your wildest expectations!
