The Santa Claus Effect

The Santa Claus Effect is a profound concept that I learned from one of my mentors.

Every cause has an effect.

While we can see this in our physical bodies i.e. if you lift weights, your muscles will become stronger, it is harder at times to see it with our decisions. However, every decision you make will have a certain effect on your life.

The life you live now is a direct result (effect) of all your decisions from the past (causes).

Thus, if you change your decisions, you can change your life.

The challenge with this is when you’ve linked the wrong cause to the wrong effect in your life.

This is where the Santa Claus effect occurs.

When we were growing up, we were taught that when you’re a good girl or boy, you will get presents from Santa.

We learned: If I am good, I will get rewarded.

But, this is not the correct cause and effect! When does being good have to do with getting rewards and gifts? How many people do you know that are really good people and are not successful/healthy/insert what you desire here?

Where else in your life have you linked the wrong cause and effect?

Here are a few examples from my life:

  • I have to work hard to be successful. If this were true, every nanny or garbage worker would be a millionaire.
  • I have to be quiet to be liked. The truth is, if I stayed quiet, no one would hear me.
  • If I have no boudnaires, people will like me.
  • If I don’t speak up, I won’t get into trouble.
  • If I do everything for my kids, they will love me.

All these are the false cause and effect!

Once, I realized this, I became to link the correct cause and effect to get the results that I desired.
