The Butterfly Effect –.

What actually is the butterfly effect?

Why is it so important to know how much the effect is significant to make changes in life?

I first heard of the butterfly effect on the series, Heroes around the year 2008/9.

Referring to time travel to the past, if there are changes in the past…there will be big changes to the future.

Here is the thing, there are cause and effect in every situation. We can’t escape the butterfly effect: no matter how hard we try.

Small things turn into big things…It’s the little things that make up the big things.

By focusing on doing small daily efforts, in time, they will mount up to big changes.

Don’t ever underestimate the power of our actions. With one small gesture, we can change our life.

The Theory

The butterfly effect states that when a butterfly moves its wings, it can cause a cyclone in another part of the world. It has become, in modern times, a metaphor for the existence of seemingly insignificant moments that alter history and the shape of destiny.

Let’s consider an example: (A very idealistic example)Imagine you are in a work environment where you are ‘bullied’ and not understood. So you decide to take action and resign from your position..In doing so, you share with your team why you are leaving. Your team, being loyal to you, decides to resign also, because they don’t tolerate that kind of behaviour.

Upon finding themselves without work, each person in the team embraces the idea that they should all start a business – as a team. They invest time and energy, and in due course, become extremely successful to the extent that they started competing with the company they used to work for.

Under the strain of the relentless competition, the old company announced insolvency!.My take on this: .What we do today determines where we heading to. There is every possibility that our current destination is not what we set out initially. Sometimes it may just be totally different and you not have thought of it at all.

But it is important when you want to go where fewer people go and do things fewer people do.
