Taking personal responsibility.

Friday December 13, 2013

"No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible." Voltaire

Malcolm Gladwell writes wonderfully thought provoking books and in his book 'The Tipping Point'. he explores how things change and that they so often, after a length of time moving towards change, suddenly shift in the end what seems very quickly.

This is of course the 'tipping point' where after all the time and effort put in to something, suddenly bears fruit and highlights the need to keep going as our subconscious works on the acceptance of this 'new' way and then just like the flood gates, opens for this 'new world' to flow through. This is the same for a person, family, organisation, community or country.

It is that 'Aha' moment where we finally 'get it' and our world view is changed forever.

When was your last 'Aha' moment? What can you, or how can others, add that one last snowflake that finally reaches your 'tipping point' to help change your life and even overcome the latest bout of darkness.

Which of your friends sticks with you long enough and continually supports you, in the way you need to be supported? To walk beside you, until you breath in that new world view and the world become colourful again?

Whoever they are - cherish those final 'snowflakes'.
