Master Success by Living in Harmony with the Universal Laws

In a garden there stands a majestic tree. In the winter it stands bare, stripped of its splendour but in the spring it produces a mass of beautiful white blossoms. The flowers appear over the course of a few days like kernels of corn which have reached bursting point.

This grand annual showcase is a poignant reminder of the quote by Anais Nin:

"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."

Many people lament about not being able to truly master success and achieve their full potential. It's like they're caught in a tight bud whose development has, for some reason, been stifled. The thing is, if instead of fulfilling your true destiny you do indeed remain in a bud you're robbing the world of your unique gifts.

But the question is why does this happen in the first place?

Year after year, the tree in the garden blossoms. It knows of no other way of existence. It simply abides by the Laws of Nature and the Laws of the Universe. The tree doesn't worry about what will happen when it blossoms. It doesn't worry that its beautiful flowers are transient. It doesn't hold flowers in reserve. It produces its flowers in abundance. The tree simply fulfils its destiny.

You are a higher life-form than the tree. In fact, you're the highest life-form of all. Success is your birthright.

The difference between you and a tree is that you can think and you can choose. So while the tree abides by the Laws of the Universe you don't have to.

You can consider different options and different paths to take to achieve your goals. But the irony is that unless you abide by the Laws of the Universe your success will be limited and your results will be inconsistent.

So while the tree simply flows with nature and exists in harmony with Universal Laws you will sometimes live in harmony with laws and at other times you will be out of step with these laws. The good thing is that you will know in which state you exist because the Universe always gives excellent feedback by the way of your results.

Simply put, if you're achieving the results and success you desire then you're working in harmony with the Universal Laws.

One of the many reasons why people do not achieve the level of success they desire is because they worry about what it would be like to achieve their goals and be successful. Some worry that their family and or friends might become resentful of their success. Some people think that they will not be able to handle the extra responsibilities that come with success. Some think that becoming wealthy as a result of being successful might change who they are.

They start to rationalise that becoming successful might not be such a good idea after all. Of course these reasons are generally ill-founded. Nonetheless, they're powerful enough to keep them from achieving their goals. They sabotage their success and when the time comes for them to bloom they remain tight in a bud.

If you can relate to this a good exercise is to imagine yourself 5 years down the line. What would life be like for you if you don't take the 'risk' to blossom and things continued along their present trend?

~ Where would you be living?

~ How much money would you be earning?

~ What would you be doing for fun and recreation?

~ What would be the state of your health?

~ How would your family be living?

Answer these questions honestly and you'll find that the perceived 'risk' is insignificant compared to the potential gain. You'll stop resisting change and your true nature. You'll give yourself permission to grow, 'blossom' and spread your abundance.

You'll start to live in harmony with the Universal Laws. You'll become a master at achieving success in your life and you'll give the world the invaluable gift of YOU.


  1. To get success you have to abide by the laws of energy, Nature and Universe- I entirley agree. How come the thoughts that I express in my book " success through Opposites" are identical to your observations!!

    But instead of fearing success- which happens when we define what is success, let the definition of success evolve as it indeed does when we permit the universal laws of energy to flow thruogh us rather than obstructing it flow. Then the fear of success melts away. A simple technique for doing this is what I describe in my above referenced book - link :

  2. Hi Musthuswamy,

    Thanks for your comments.

    The observations expressed in this post are those expressed by many Thought Leaders across the world.

    After all, if the Universe is governed by laws then it's only natural that many people will share similar views on this subject.
