The Ripple Effect
With everything in life there is one thing that is certain, each choice we make has a reaction. I call this the Ripple Effect. With every decision we make there are a series of events that follow. Whether the events are to your advantage or not, is determined by the actions you have created
More often than not we have complete control of our everyday lives. We know what we need to do to progress. We hold the responsibility, but do nothing to begin the ripple into something bigger. We make excuses as to why we cant take the first step, whether it be, money, support, or even belief that we are simply not capable. We have to remember that not only are we capable, but we are also strong and determined.
For instance, you didn’t have to get out of bed, to make time for the gym. You didn’t have to get to work on time. You didn’t have to make sure your bills were paid on time. But you did. You willed yourself to do so. It was a choice to start the process to gain the bigger reward. The reward which is you are healthy enough to go to work, you worked for a paycheck, which in turn, led to the next ripple, you paid your bills on time.
Attention to to the smallest details, creates the biggest outcome.
You see, we really are naïve in thinking so less of ourselves that we overlook the progress we make in our everyday lives. No, not everything is quickly to our liking, but everyday counts as something. We have to stop thinking that our capabilities are miniscule and start remembering just how powerful our actions and minds really are. You want to build a company, take a step in the right direction and every day take another…Eventually the ripples will grow, and everything you dreamed of will be visible to everyone, including yourself.
There is no better example to the ripple effect than Isaac Wingo. A devoted husband, father of two, and Firefighter at Tuscumbia Fire Department. He took an idea and began the steps to create Wingo Pottery. It wasn’t long until he turned into the pottery guru he is today. He knew the process with each piece took time, but everyday he continued working toward success. In no time he found that there was something special in creating one of a kind pieces to share with everyone. His creativity has spread throughout our community and has began filling the homes of those outside the community as well.
From creative mind to creative hands, Isaac puts his heart into each individual piece. This makes him one who realizes that throwing an idea, and working hard, really can have an accomplished and proud outcome. His growth continues on as he puts his trust in Gods hands, and has faith that his guidance will lead him to where he is an inspiration to others as well.
Creation isn’t something that is simply made, but something that is felt, inspired and valued.
Most have seen Wingo Pottery set up at local businesses, such as The Emporium of the Shoals, The Shoppes at Coldwater, or setup in the First Fridays in Downtown Florence. Isaac’s pottery has grown so much in this community and is just one of the wonderful reason why our area is thriving. His unique pottery is such a wonderful addition to add to your own collection and makes a perfect gift to those we hold dear to us.
Remember you haven’t gotten this far in life overnight. It took a few rocks thrown, and a lot of ripples to get you this far. Keep moving forward and the ideas you have only dreamed of will become your reality. Make the choice, be brave, and most importantly… Trust the Process.
