We’ve heard that when a butterfly flaps its wings somewhere in the world it can cause a tornado on the opposite side of the planet. On a smaller scale, it’s amazing to me to see how ripples grow across the lake and build momentum when I simply drop a pebble into the water.
These are powerful metaphors for the dramatic and poignant influence that we can have on our surroundings and the many people that we come in contact with each and every day.
I’ve been accused of being overly optimistic, but what if everyone focused on creating nothing but positive ripples?
What if we were keenly aware of our language, each gesture, and every little nuance of our actions? What if we were to have nothing but the purest intentions with everything we do? Imagine the ripple effect!
I believe that we would become stronger leaders, better team members and quite frankly kinder to ourselves.
So, as you take your first steps into this brand-new year, set a powerful intention for who you want to be. Consider the ripples that you wish to create, the waves that they will become and the impact that you hope to have in the months ahead.
With optimism and love,
