Power Ripples That Change Your Life Through Personal Development
Learn how "the butterfly effect" has changed the lives of others and how creating one small ripple in th epond of life can lead to the life of your dreams!
There is a law of chaos that is called the butterfly effect. This law states that small changes in one place can can a huge impact on another place over time. The most common explanation of the butterfly effect is to say that if a butterfly flaps its wings in Tokyo it can cause a hurricane in New York!
If you have ever watched the film "A Wonderful Life", with Jimmy Stewart, you will see how the butterfly effect works. The film by the same name, "The Butterfly Effect", is also a great example of this powerful law.
In "Its a Wonderful Life", Jimmy Stewart's character has experienced a sequence of stressful and negative events that leads him to attempt suicide. When an angel appears and rescues him, the man makes a wish that he had never been born or existed. The angel grants him his wish. The man then views and interacts with the world as though he had never been born and sees how people, places, events and outcomes have changed because he was not there to change them through his interaction with them. Even small things he had done made big changes because in this reality he had not done them!
The film "The Butterfly Effect" is about a young man's ability to travel back to his own childhood. Merely by looking at a picture from his past he can enter that time and the body of his former self while retaining all his knowledge about the present. He then uses this ability to make small changes that have a dramatic effect on his world when he returns to his own time.
These films are perfect examples of the butterfly effect. They show how little changes made can have a huge impact on future events, people and circumstances.
Using the same principle you can make small, minor and almost insignificant changes in your life now that will have a dramatic effect on your future through the butterfly effect. A stone thrown into a pond will create small ripples that travel far!
How many times have we heard of a person who buys a lottery ticket on a whim and wins a fortune? This small act had a dramatic and huge impact on all areas of their life! Although this may be an extreme example, that is not common, ordinary small changes can have just as much of an impact over time.
