The Law of Requisite Variety

If I ask you what can you learn from play dough, what would be your answer?

For me, the most important lesson I can learn from play dough is flexibility. You can bend it, break it or cut it, it will always be ready to get a shape.

Similarly, when children want something, they have never-ending ideas to get it. They will be flexible enough to ask multiple times.

A person whose behaviour is as flexible as play dough is the most influential one. Almost all magnetic personas have magnetism in their ability to be shaped and moulded into new ones. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean compromise or adjustment. It is more about looking at failures as feedback and obstacles as opportunities.

In NLP, this is called “Behavioral Flexibility”. The Law of Requisite Variety in NLP simply states that the person with the most flexibility of behaviour has the greatest influence on others and on the outcome. When you dramatically increase your flexibility in the way you communicate, you dramatically increase the level of influence that you have over other people around you and on situations and circumstances.

So how flexible are you on a scale of 1 to 10?

Meta Magic – The Anatomy of Wealth

Once a merchant bought a new camel. He asked his servant to remove the saddle after getting the camel home. The servant discovered a tiny, velvet, purple pouch in the saddle. He handed it over to his master. Inside the pouch, they found 20 sparkling, real diamonds. The servant got ecstatic and began congratulating the master.

The master however said, “I paid for the camel, not for the diamonds. Just because I found these, they are not mine”. The servant rolled his eyes and tried his best to convince the master, but the master was honest to the T and went back to the camel seller to return the pouch.

The camel seller heaved a sigh of relief and gratefully offered two diamonds as a reward to the merchant, who gracefully declined the offer. On frequent insistence by the camel seller, the merchant said: “I already have two of the most precious diamonds.”

Dumbfounded, the camel seller recounted the diamonds and still found 20. Looking at his puzzled face, the merchant said, “My two most precious diamonds which make me the wealthiest are honesty and self-respect”.

My question to you is, “Which are the values that you consider as your most precious diamonds?”

Hook From the Book
