Einstein famously said that “God does not play dice with the universe.” What does this mean?
It means the universe, the physical world “out there,” is governed by repeatable laws. They don’t change, they don’t suddenly come out of nowhere and they don’t suddenly cease to exist.
But what about human nature? Human nature is also largely based on behavior laws. People tend to avoid pain in favor of pleasure. All things being equal, we’d rather have something sooner than later. We’d rather put less effort than more effort to get something.
Another amazing facet of human nature is that society is largely based on exchange. Not just monetary or economic exchange, but exchange of ideas, thoughts, words, conversations, emotions and feelings.
No man is an island, as they say.
It would seem, then, that getting pretty much anything you want is a slam-dunk, right? All you’ve got to do is figure out what it is, figure out what it takes to get it, get whatever help you need from others (in exchange for whatever you’ve got to offer them), and you’re good to go, right?
Obviously, this ain’t so easy. Not so cut and dried.
What’s the missing variable?
Sure, the “out there” world is going to carry on regardless. But how you operate on the “out there” world depends on your own internal filters.
Before you make any decisions, or take any actions, that “out there” world has to be filtered through your beliefs, so it can become your “in here,” subjective reality.
If you’ve got a limiting set of beliefs, you won’t see much opportunity “out there.”
If, on the other hand, you’ve got some powerfully affirming beliefs, no matter what you see “out there” it will see like a golden opportunity, like that line from the Talking Heads song: “dreams walking in broad daylight.”
If you believe life is easy, you’re right.
If you believe life is hard, you’re right.
Change your beliefs, change your life.
