“When we understand that every action matters, every result of our actions immediately improves, and deciding to do SOMETHING will make all the DIFFERENCE!” — Andy Andrews
When I first learned of the Butterfly Effect, I thought how fascinating. Incredible! Could it be?
Edward Norton Lorenz’s research undeniably establishes that imperceptible changes can have large consequences in nature. At first, the principle that the flutter of a butterfly’s wings in one part of the world causes or prevents a tornado in another part was deemed preposterous. Years later, that same scientific community proclaimed its validity. Lorenz’s experiment establishes that nature is highly sensitive to tiny changes. Furthermore, it proves that “the more a system has the capacity to vary, the less likely it is to produce a repeating sequence.” Think about that.
If something as imperceptible as the flutter of a butterfly’s wings has the ripple effect of such large proportions, imagine the power your thoughts, words, and deeds have not only in your immediate surroundings but also in future generations. Sometimes it is hard to fathom how what we do today will affect generations to come. Yet, everything matters; we are all connected. What we do for ourselves also affects others today, tomorrow, and the next.
No life is insignificant. Everyone matters. YOU matter. Your life has a ripple effect throughout the ages not just in your lifetime. Andy Andrews has spent his life sharing the teachings that he learned from his mentor, Jones, that every move you make counts; that the mere understanding of that principle impacts your results but then deciding to do something makes all the difference. Essentially, what Andrews wants us to understand is that it converts all we do into a life of permanent purpose.
Permanent? Yes, for every MOVE we make counts. NOTHING is more important. EVERYTHING MATTERS. As we begin to live a life of permanent purpose, we become the catalysts for others to do the same. We become better persons. As if that wasn’t enough, our productivity and success soar.
See this for yourself. Start noticing the effect of your actions, especially those you think are harmless. Once you realize your power, your life changes instantly. You will never be the same. You can never think again that you are insignificant, that you do not make a difference. Gone are the days when you doubt and wonder if the Universe responds to you. You can indeed bring about what you desire for everything is connected. Everything matters.
Will you be cautious of the comments you make in idle conversations? Will you see the potentiality that that comment has for you and those around you? Will you be wiser in your choices?
“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.” – Robert Byrne
I find it fitting to share an angelic message I received: “Honor the past as your teacher and the present as your inspiration.” Find your inspiration as you live in the moment. Every move counts. Nothing is more important.
How are you going to use this power?
