Do unto others as others do unto you is the myth. This myth gives people a gateway to treat people bad. Well this person treated me like this so I can treat them the same. This violates the Law of Reciprocity. In this article I plan on re-framing the statement of Do unto others as others do unto you.
Let’s talk about The Law of Reciprocity. Give and take cause and effect. We learned about this as children in school but somehow forgot about it as adults. If you treat someone bad, they will react negatively. That’s how it works. If you treat someone good, they will act accordingly. So, what is the common denominator in the equation? You, how you treat the person is how they will react.
So what can you do? The first thing is to stay positive. Positivity is the key here. Being grateful for everything around you is the first step. A part of my morning routine is to meditate. In that meditation I focus on all the things I am grateful for. That sets my day up for success.
Being a generally good and honest human being is another way. Be just in all that you do. Don’t do things out of envy or jealousy. Do them because they are the right thing to do. If you do the right thing most people will reciprocate that. Im not saying that there aren’t bad people out there. I am saying protect your energy and only focus on doing the right thing. For example, I don’t lie. The reason I don’t lie is it takes to much energy to make up a lie. Its so much easier to tell the truth whether good or bad. I normally get the truth in return.
Overall, do the right thing. Be nice and courtesy to people. Respect people and they will respect you. Remember what you put out is what you get. If you put out negativity you will receive negativity. If you put out positivity you will receive positivity. That’s the way it works.
