The Law of Compensation states that the amount of money or good that you receive in life is in direct ratio with 1. the need for what you do, 2. your ability to do it, and 3.the difficulty there is in replacing you.
1. Whatever you do is of use for others, therefore there is a need for what you do.
2. Your ability to do it – this is what we must focus on the most – your ability to do your job/work is what determines how much you can be paid for what you do. Get better at what you do, be the best in your team, your field, and study… learn more about it. Go the extra mile for your clients and colleagues, volunteer for extra work. Once you become the best at what you do, your compensation will increase and there is going to be a 3. difficulty in replacing you.
Do not think that your boss/company is ungrateful and won’t see it!
Do not think that your boss/company won’t pay your worth!
Do not think that you are doing this for your boss/company!
You are doing this for you, for your life, for your future. By law you will be compensated for what you’re doing. By law you will receive your compensation from the universe whether is financial or material. If your boss/company won’t pay you for what you’re doing, there is always someone at the door waiting to pay you for your expertise or you can simply get into the business of selling your expertise… do not worry about any of these, just focus on getting better… on becoming the best.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, in his essay, “Compensation,” wrote that each person is compensated in like manner for that which he or she has contributed. You will always be compensated for your efforts and for your contribution, whatever it is, however much or however little. The income you earn today is your compensation for what you have done in the past. If you want to increase your compensation, you must increase the value of your contribution. Your mental attitude, your feelings of happiness and satisfaction, are also the result of the things that you have put into your own mind. If you fill your own mind with thoughts, visions and ideas of success, happiness and optimism, you will be compensated by those positive experiences in your daily activities.
Make no mistake in thinking that it doesn’t work both ways. If you’re in a job that pays you more than what you give, the law of compensation will still work; whether you see it or not, eventually you will receive the “correct” compensation. You very often here how people have been let go from their job or how companies went bust and hundreds or possible thousands of people lost their jobs… it’s all to do with the law of compensation.
Those who were paid more than what they gave will struggle to find the next job, whilst those who gave more than what they were paid for, the “incident” is a blessing as they are going to be invited into a better paid job.
Do not let yourself fooled by what you see, because there is alway more than what meets the eye. Things that seem bad can be good for those who deserve it. Do your best and be the best. Give your best and you will be compensated for your worth.
