Have You Heard Of The Law of Accumulation?

Have you heard of THE LAW OF ACCUMULATION?

I’m sure you’ll have heard the quote: “Enjoy the little things because one day you’ll look back and realise they were the big things” 

I’ve got a little sign that I pass everyday as my reminder to myself, but I interpreted it as meaning enjoy the beauty of everything – the sun, the flowers, spending time with my granddaughters and family etc. However, listening to this YouTube clip by Brian Tracy, I realise that it has even greater meaning and importance in our lives and that if we focus our attention on taking lots of small positive actions everyday, there is a snowball effect and those tiny actions suddenly start to join together and the momentum increases. At first, the actions seem ‘little and insignificant’ but those tiny steps will become giant leaps.

This principle works both ways. If we’re spending time taking positive actions in life, our lives will experience more positivity but if we’re standing still or focussing on the negative aspects of our lives, we’ll start to accumulate more negativity – and that builds momentum too.

I started a 90 Day Change A Habit Challenge for myself a few weeks ago and I opened it out to see if others wanted to join me in the challenge. I didn’t think about it when I started the challenge, but when I watched Brian’s video this morning, I realised that this is the principle that we’re using in our 90 day changing habit challenge.

The challenge is about taking small steps every day for a minimum of 90 days, in order to re-programme our minds to accept a new habit as a normal part of our lives.

I’m 30 days into my challenge now, which is to improve my fitness habit by exercising every day for a minimum of 5 minutes and I’m really starting to feel the benefit and the momentum within me is growing.

It’s no longer an effort to complete the daily challenge, I look forward to succeeding each day.

Now some people may laugh and say “5 minutes – what difference will that make?”

Well the benefits for me are definitely accumulating and building momentum. I’m feeling more energetic and I no longer dread exercising. It’s really changing how I think about exercise. I used to start out all guns blazing when I’d go on an exercise kick.  I’d go to the gym every day and use weights that were too heavy and by the end of a couple of weeks, I’d be in so much pain that I’d give up.

Starting small has enabled me to build my strength slowly and more often than not, I do at least 20 minutes once I start, because I enjoy it, without feeling under any pressure.

Others who’ve joined me so far in the 90 day challenge are also noticing the accumulation of the benefits of just taking small steps every day in their challenges. I can hear and see what a difference it’s making to their lives too.

Yes, the Law of Accumulation principle is definitely a principle that works and by taking small positive steps in all areas of our lives, we can really build positive momentum. Brian explains this in more detail in his YouTube video – have a listen and see how you can apply the principles to the different areas of your life.

Have a think about which areas of your life are going well and which aren’t – you’ll probably notice that you’ve applied the principle without even realising it to the areas that are going well and you’ll be able to improve the areas that aren’t going well by starting to apply this principle.

I’ve got a Facebook Group where we’re supporting and encouraging each other to keep going for the 90 days and being part of the challenge group is also really helping us to build momentum.

I’d love to hear what you think about Brian Tracy and/or the Law of Accumulation.. so have a listen and leave me a comment to tell me what you think and whether you’ve used this law in areas of your life.. Thank you!

    Hi, Wendy! I just started following your blog, and I must say I’m a little shocked because this concept of accumulating little habits, is exactly what my new book is about! I, of course, agree with your post and appreciate you introducing me to Brian Tracy’s work 🙂

      Great to meet you and thanks for the follow. I’ll definitely pop across and have a look at your blog too. You may be interested in my 90 Day Changing Habit Challenge too – one step at a time.. I’ve set up a Facebook Group if you’re interested in joining it – let me know. When you subscribed, I’ve just set up an email which you should receive, which contains Step 1 of the Life Audit Habit Changing Workbook – I’d be really interested to know if it’s come through to you and if it hit your inbox or your junk box as it’s difficult for me to know whether the emails are going out as they should or not.
      Much appreciated

        Hi Wendy,
        I appreciate the follow back. Unfortunately, I never got Step 1 of the Life Audit Habit Changing Workbook. It could just be me though :\

    I believe wholeheartedly of the law of accumulation that everything is built on or affected by the previous moment. I experience it and witness it everyday. Thank you for sharing!

            Wonderful – those first days and even the first months are wonderful and yet a shock to the system, when you realise the responsibility. I’m glad they’re encouraged.. xx

          • October 4, 2017 / 7:56 pm

            Thank you, Wendy! I said to my daughter that this is the joy and learning of parenthood. They were out with the 5-day old baby to a meeting last night. Right now they are running errand with the baby, and have big smiles on their faces. This is so wonderful for them. 🙂 xo

    ‘Everything counts’, that’s so true. I know with my own new meditation routine, as part of your 90 day challenge, I can feel the difference, I can feel the momentum and the subtle changes within me. Great post Wendy. xo

      Yes – me too Osyth. I hadn’t thought about it in such a specific way but like you, it resonates when I look back at things that have gone well – it’s often a gradual accumulation and as he says often starting with the building of knowledge. Thanks for reading .. Mary xx
