While science laws mostly apply to physical or chemical bodies, with a little bit of abstract thinking, we can also apply some of these laws to our everyday life. Here are 3 science laws you can apply to your life.
1. Newton First Law of Motion
Newton’s First Law of Motion states, “A body at rest will remain at rest, and a body in motion will remain in motion unless it is acted upon by an external force.”
What can you learn?
Things don’t just start, stop or change direction all by themselves. It requires some force acting on them from the outside to cause such a change.
To cause the change you desire in life, business, career, you have to be willing to exert an “external force”. It could mean exploring new opportunities or trying out new strategies. You have to be open to new ideas and be willing to try them out.
“If you do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always gotten.”— Tony Robbins
2. The Law of Conservation of Energy
The law of conservation of energy states that energy, energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be transformed from one form into another. This means that the loss in one form of energy leads to a rise in the other form of energy.
What can you learn?
The more effort you invest in any endeavour, the better you get at it even if it doesn’t seem so. One way or the other, those efforts are being converted to knowledge, experience, skill etc. So if you’ve got a dream, never be afraid to put in those 10, 000 hours, because you’re never really wasting your energy.
“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”—Abraham Lincoln
3. Newton Third Law of Motion
If an object A exerts a force on object B, then object B must exert a force of equal magnitude and opposite direction back on object A.
This law represents a certain symmetry in nature: forces always occur in pairs, and one body cannot exert a force on another without experiencing a force itself. We sometimes refer to this law loosely as action-reaction, where the force exerted is the action and the force experienced as a consequence is the reaction.
What you can learn?
For every action (force) in nature, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Every little choice you make plays a part in who you become and what you get. So ask yourself, who do you want to be and what do you want to get and what choices and actions should you be taking.
“Life is a matter of choices, and every choice you make makes you.” —John C. Maxwell
