Life Is Like A Waterfall

Like a Waterfall

Life and business are like a waterfall~

A few weeks ago, I was sitting near a fountain in Campus Martius (Downtown Detroit) and it hit me…as beautiful and peaceful as waterfalls are – they are similar to life in general and as I thought about it even more I realized they are also closely related to business. So, I decided this would be a great topic to write about.

Like a Waterfall

How? You may be asking yourself. Well, I’ll explain my thought process to you and it is my hope you will find it as intriguing as I. Waterfalls are not only peaceful and tranquil but they splash unexpectedly and at times, crash down harder than expected.

When droplets of water land in the fountain or on the ground they absorb and become exactly what they are to be; exactly where they should be at the exact time. Just like in life and business – sometimes we don’t know why things happen or what you want doesn’t happen fast enough – but you need to know whatever “it” is; is exactly what “it” needs to be.

Similar to life and business waterfalls bring enjoyment, peace and in some instances heartache, pain and struggles. The flow of water has a natural course and when you go with the flow you are where you need to be.

Take a moment out of your day to enjoy the flow…

    1. Great post, this is one to think about as we often attempt to interrupt the natural ebb and flow of life. I guess the key takeaway is to just let go!
