Do you ever wonder about the long term effect of your actions and the many who may be affected by what you do? Can you possibly imagine how many people are directly affected by you? Can you possibly imagine all the people affected by the people you affected? Is this the ripple effect?
Could you look at these affects in terms of people, of time, of distance, of impact, of endurance or of relevance? Can you measure the ripple effect? What is the ripple effect?
Are the most beneficial effects of our actions and words immediate? Could they evolve over time? Are the ripples you create your true legacy?
“Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.”–Dalai Lama
Do our thoughts, plans, decisions and actions create ripples in our own life? Are habits a product of the ripple effect? Do habits create ripples?
How has the ripple effect manifested in your life? Have your actions and the actions of others created the ripples? Do the ripples you have produced affect your life now? Are they affecting others? Do you desire to produce more ripples or do you want calm and tranquility, without creating a ripple? Is that possible?
