The Law of Compensation

This law was introduced by Brian Tracy. I would share it but first let me explain that how it works, we human doubt the existence of such a law, because its workings are often so sluggish that they are not readily perceived by our understanding.

Few of us believe that since this law doesn’t seem to work consistently in the world, it must come into operation in the next world. And with this belief many persons have carried on in the face of the changes of life with positive guts, calming themselves with the faith that they would get their reward in some future “heaven.”  Law of Compensation states that we will only receive what is rightfully ours.
You Get What You Give
Ralph Waldo Emerson, in his essay, "Compensation," wrote that each person is compensated in like manner for that which he or she has contributed. The Law of Compensation is another translation of the Law of sowing and reaping. It says that you will always be compensated for your efforts and for your contribution, whatever it is, however much or however little.
Increase Your Value
This Law of Compensation also says that you can never be compensated in the long term for more than you put in. 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
Fill Your Mind With Success
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.
Do More Than You're Paid For
Another corollary of the Law of sowing and reaping is what is sometimes called the, "Law of over compensation." This law says that great success comes from those who always make it a habit to put in more than they take out. They do more than they are paid for. They are always looking for opportunities to exceed expectations. And because they are always overcompensating, they are always being over rewarded with the esteem of their employers and customers and with the financial rewards that go along with their personal success.
Provide the Causes, Enjoy the Effects
One of your main responsibilities in life is to align yourself and your activities with Law of Cause and Effect (and its corollaries), accepting that it is an inexorable law that always works, whether anyone is looking or not. Your job is to institute the causes that are consistent with the effects that you want to enjoy in your life. When you do, you will realize and enjoy the rewards you desire.
Action Exercises
Here are two things you can do immediately to put these ideas into action.
1. Remind yourself regularly that your rewards will always be in direct proportion to your service to others. 
2. Look for ways to go the extra mile, to use the Law of  over compensation in everything you do. This is the great secret of success indeed.

  3. Verily justice will be done for our efforts whether we choose to believe it or not. This justice/compensation may be fulfilled in this world or after. I believe an optimist will agree with this law of compensation.
