If we look in any dictionary, the definition will say something similar to this.
The Ripple Effect is the continuing and spreading results of an event or action.
Now, just for one moment, imagine sitting on the edge of a lake. This lake is perfectly still, there are no people about, no wind, just quiet perfectly still water, no movement.
You know what it looks like if you take one pebble and drop it into that calm water. Right? Ripples start to appear, and, they get bigger.
That is what is known as the ripple effect.
But, what we don't know and what we can't know for certain is just how far the effects of that one pebble thrown into the water will actually reach. Who or what does it affect?
This is exactly the same as in life. Every action we have and every word we speak has a great effect on those around us. and like that pebble, we just never know how far the effects will carry.
One smile can brighten a person's day. One compliment can make all the difference to someone's confidence. One story can change the world for one person.
