The Three Laws of Success

The three laws of success

The three laws of success

Have you noticed that the number 3 seems to have a special significance?

We share a thought that:

  • The genie grants Aladdin three wishes
  • Disasters come in threes

In music, a chord is formed by selecting three notes from the octave:

1st note
3rd note
5th note

In science we have:

  • Newton's three laws of motion
  • Kepler's three laws of planetary orbits
  • Asimov's three laws of robotics
  • Aristotle's three laws of thought
  1. Identity
  2. Excluded middle
  3. Contradiction

In religion even God comes in a handy pack of three: the HOLY trinity

  1. Father
  2. Son
  3. Holy Ghost
  • It seems to me
  • That the number three
  • Affects human psychology!

Maybe the numerologists are right!
3 seems to have significance
Nature seems to favour three.

And Nobody knows why.....

But it is said; "In order to command nature, one must first obey her laws"
So let us "Go with the flow" of nature and discover what are The three laws of success.

They are very simple. Here they are:

The three laws of success are:

  1. Be clear
  2. Be rational
  3. Be positive

Let us discern some truth......

Leadership Training - The Effective Leader Manager

As the team leader or manager, you know that, on the technical level, you are very good. In your role as an effective and inspirational leader-manager, you recognise that there may be some gaps. Now you are searching for a method to help you to improve your skills as a team-leader and manager - click here to find out more!

1. Be clear

All successful leaders must be clear.

  1. Leaders must be clear in their own mind what outcome they want to achieve.
  2. Also they must be clear in their communication to others, with respect to what outcome they want to achieve.

The opposite of clarity is vagueness.

And a leader with only a vague notion of what he wants to do, is a contradiction in terms.
And a good leader who possesses only a vague power of verbal expression, is a contradiction in terms.

  1. All great leaders have a clear ambition.
  2. All great leaders have perfected the art of clear expression.

To be a successful leader then: practice the same disciplines.

Practice the art of clarity.

2. Be rational

Reason is your means of survival.
Your reason is the combined power of your intellect and knowledge.
It may be seen as the sum total of your "data base" and your "logic".
In order to be a great leader you need to have sufficient and up to date knowledge,
AND you must be able to process that knowledge logically, in order to come up with correct answers to life's problems.
In addition you should treat all other human beings RATIONALY: as if they too were people of high intellect (which most are).
Do not treat them irrationally:

i.e. Don't treat people as if they were of low intellect. (Many people lack sufficient knowledge and education: but they do not lack innate intelligence).
Never confuse a lack of education or knowledge as a lack of intelligence.
Assume that other people are intelligent beings and you will get on better with them.

Treat all people, at all times, according to the principles of reason.

3. Be positive

Within reason, be as positive as you can, in your attitude towards life.

That means:
Purposefully cultivate an expectation that the future will be better than:

  1. The present day
  2. The past

This expectation of a bright future is not based on blind faith.

This expectation is based on a commitment to:

  1. Work diligently and intelligently towards the goals that you set at point one.
  2. Your powers of Reason, logic and
  3. Your ability to direct your own mind.

All successful leaders: Expect success
A great leader who does not think he can achieve his goals is a contradiction-in-terms.
Such a creature cannot exist.
So expect your own success.

The three laws of success are:

  1. Be clear
  2. Be rational
  3. Be positive
