Does the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil, set off a tornado in Texas?

For the uninitiated, this is the question that defines the Butterfly Effect.  How a seemingly insignificant action can influence a large-scale future event.

Pretty incredible thought, huh.

But is it?

After all, back in 1886, the simple curiosity of an Atlanta pharmacist led him to create a new soft drink. Today, Cocoa Cola Amatil is worth hundred’s of millions of dollars.

While some years ago a young lawyer could see a better future for his people. Never giving up on his vision, Nelson Mandela defied the odds and turned a country on its head.

Back here in the office only a month ago, our Angela made the decision to train part-time in an industry she’d only dreamed about. Now she’s working in 5 star hotels and with high-end weddings. And she’s loving it.

Isn’t it incredible how everything starts with a single thought, or step or action. And we never know how far reaching any one of these will be.

So the choice is yours.

You can sit there only dreaming about how you want things to be.

 

And you may not go anywhere.

Or you can take little steps in the direction of your dreams. Little steps that may not seem significant at first. And then one day, looking back, you might just be surprised by the greatness of what you have achieved.

All it takes is one action every day.

That’s a massive 365 actions every year.

And that’s significant, isn’t it.

So how much closer to your dream will you be this time next year?

This is your life. Your future starts now.

What are you going to do with it?
