One small action can create dynamic change!
The morning was crisp quiet and breathtaking. There’s nothing like waking up next to a high mountain lake. The air is so fresh and the reflective qualities of the water are quite unique. Check out this view of South Sister from Moraine Lake in the beautiful Cascade Mountain Range of Oregon.
After breakfast my son David and I went down to the lake to refresh our water supply before we headed to the South Sister Summit with our wives. As David placed the water purifier in the water I was reminded of the Ripple Effect.
The Ripple Effect – is when you upset a perfectly still body of water with an action – the energy of the action moves through-out the entire body of water. If you look closely at this next picture you can see how the ripples are moving and changing the perfectly clear reflective image of the mountain as they pass through the lake.
Consider how the Ripple Effect works in our lives. If we set in motion a certain decision or action it ripples through our life – with positive and negative impact.
Check out this example:
Whether we recognize it or not the Ripple Effect is happening right now! How about the ripples your releasing at your place of work – in your friendships with extended family. There are ripple effects even in our own thinking. We let wrong thoughts exist and they ripple across our mind and rob us of joy and creativity.
Here are some tips to use the Ripple Effect to your advantage.
