What is Karma anyway? Is it the life savior? Is it the backstabber that just seems to never stop? Or is it nobody to you because you haven't experienced anything great or anything particularly bad. With either scenario, here's how to bring the GOOD into your life:
What is the ripple effect? If you haven't heard of it, it describes the reaction to every single action that occurs. No matter how small that action may be, it still produces an unprecedented effect because your action can affect the action of someone/something else. This is an important aspect of life because it directly relates to us. What we do at this very second affects the lives of others. To bring good karma into your life, I bet you heard the saying "Put good out and you'll get good in". This is true but it's much deeper than that. People have to realize that their actions affect everyone around the world because everyone has a connection to someone... regardless of how much you want to buy into this fact, we inevitably are all connected, simply because we are human. Take every single action seriously while having a worldly outlook and you are sure to get good karma coming your way.
Go out of your way to be selfless. This may be easier or harder for some of us. But one thing is for certain: it is natural for humans to be innately selfish. Think about how we were able to survive and evolve over these hundreds of thousands of years. It wasn't done by saving that sabertooth tiger from falling in the tar pit. No such thing as animal activists then. But we have developed this value of being selfless because our basic needs have been met. This being said, THERE ARE NO EXCUSES NOW! We need to go out and help each other. By doing so, we are helping ourselves. Why do you ask? This is because we gain insight into their lives. Insight grants compassion, and compassion grants understanding. This makes us realize how good we really have it! As much as we want to dwell in our own problems, someone out there has it worse.
Let go of your personal pride. This is not to be confused with being confident. Being confident is an important part of ourselves! Pride however, is the belief that you are better than someone else selfishly. Being confident means knowing you have value, while not comparing yourself to others. This is why companies want confident leaders, not prideful leaders. That being said, exuding confidence is something that good people are attracted to. Whatever aura you give off, you inherently attract. Just remember: being confident is inclusive, being prideful is isolating. People subconsciously feel this. Let go of your pride and you'll notice good things (and people) will be coming into your life.
Blame yourself instead of others. People blame others because it is the easiest thing to do. We don't like to admit we are wrong even when we are. It is important we take ownership when certain things happen to us! Although "blame yourself" sounds harsh, it is meant as a way of inwardly looking and asking ourselves "How can we make this situation better?" Without taking ownership, nothing will get done. If everyone had that attitude "I didn't do it, therefore I'm not fixing it" then the whole operation would crumble. Taking ownership of a mistake, especially as a leader, grants respect from your followers/coworkers, making you more credible and trust worthy. Taking sole responsibility allows you to completely revolutionize your life, therefore your Karma!
Don't be afraid of Karma. It is really a name for cause and effect. Utilize the power of Karma by evolving yourself and others!
