“Nothing is more imminent than the impossible . . . what we must always foresee is the unforeseen.”
The break through, where the seemingly impossible becomes possible. The point of critical mass.
In sociodynamics critical mass is a sufficient number of adopters of an innovation in a social system so that the rate of adoption becomes self-sustaining and creates further growth. The term is borrowed from nuclear physics and in that field it refers to the amount of a substance needed to sustain a chain reaction.
It can also be the minimum size or amount of resources required to start or maintain a venture. Any movement or venture has to reach critical mass to carry on and succeed. It is a point in which things can change rapidly, growth explodes, you break through some kind of barrier. It is the point at which a popstar gets famous, the moment a business “suddenly’ attracts more customers, it is the moment of break through scientists experience after months of research, or the moment a sportsman breaks a world record.
You can be at critical mass when you feel you are at the point of no return and you say to yourself : “It’s now or never, I decide to go the extra mile, confident to succeed in whatever endeavor I find myself in.” You are at the point where you drop all worries and fear and you decide to be patient and to have faith ! You know it can take some time to build up enough momentum to shift your reality ! Your seedlings must be firmly rooted before they can sprout !
“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”
Change can come at a major turning point, one where you let go of all resistance, one where you are willing to give up the struggle and loosen up ! You drop that stiff attitude and you decide to go with the wind and bend as a bamboo tree. In whatever weather condition the bamboo finds itself in, it won’t break and it will rise up again when things get better. Always heading up high !
Change can come at a time when you feel so confident about yourself that everything happens in a rush or in a flow, smoothly and effortlessly !
When you change your feelings, you change your destiny.
Phuro! Be inspired!
