The Ripple Effect

Dropped Into Still Waters
The Ripple Effect
In a world of six billion people, it's easy to believe that the only way to initiate profound transformation is to take extreme action. Each of us, however, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse.
Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others.
As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain.
Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.
The impact you have on the world is greater than you could ever imagine, and the choices you make can have far-reaching consequences.
You can use the ripple effect to make a positive difference and spread waves of kindness that will wash over the world
