Are you working with the natural rhythm of cycles in your business or against them?
Have you ever noticed how there is an ebb and flow to life? Things happen in cycles and patterns and follow specific stages of growth and development. The universe expands and contracts almost like it’s breathing or dancing to an unseen rhythmic force. You can see this rhythm play out from everything to our own body’s cycles to the cycles of the moon, the seasons, the ocean tides and even the stock market has bull and bear markets that follow certain patterns.
Within this rhythmic dance everything eventually expands and grows before it contracts. Even death gives rise to new life.
How does this law affect our businesses?
You can see it play out when you experience a lull in your business. For whatever reason your phone stops ringing or less people visit your website or visit your store. Then all of a sudden you get a rash of calls or visitors. Your own energy has its ebbs and flows as you work your business. We’ve all experienced rushes of inspiration and excitement followed by periods of low mood or even apathy.
Why is this?
All the laws are interconnected and affect one another and this is easily seen in the law of rhythm. When you are conscious of the other laws such as the law of attraction, the law of cause and effect, and the law of action then that conscious awareness of these laws has an energetic effect all its own. When you are aware that what you put out you get back and that every action you take has an effect and action begets actions then are working your business in accordance with rhythmic forces. Subconsciously (and consciously) you are allowing everything to work together on your behalf.
Think of it as being similar to throwing a stone into a pond with the intention of creating a ripple effect. The bigger the stone the larger the wave that is created and those waves (ripples) have patterns, are predictable and flow with timing and rhythm.
Taking actions steps in your business is like throwing a stone into the pond. Are you able to determine patterns or predictability in the actions you take in your business?
- How many cold calls does it take to make a sale?
- What is your open rate for sending out emails?
- Are some days/times better than others for your business?
- Are there seasons of the year that you get more sales or traffic?
- What is your close rate and what effects it?
- When do you personally have more energy during the day?
When you start to notice patterns in your business and even with yourself and get into a rhythm with those patterns then you will find your business flows with much less effort. This is because you are working with the natural laws of the universe and not against them.
