Video Discussion: The Domino Effect

Been some time since I did a video discussion post. This idea came to me when I saw a video of a dominoes set up falling down. This video just shows 15,000 dominoes all falling down. The girl in the video has other videos of dominoes falling down if you want to check it out.

At some point in our lives we have heard of the Domino Effect being referenced. The concept is that when one thing happens another thing happens. Sometimes it’s right away and sometimes it takes a little while.

The Domino Effect is a factor that can take place in any aspect of life. From the behaviors of people and animals, weather patterns, technology, machinery, building structures, etc. The Domino Effect can work against you or be in your favor.

Influences from other people can rub off on you. For example, you see someone exercising, that can inspire you to exercise as well. You take notice of the person being healthy and having more energy. If you see this person getting results, that influence is a positive thing and can become a motivating factor for you.

A support beam or wall can bring down different parts of a building or the whole building itself. If one part of a machine breaks or goes bad, then other parts can go bad and break as well and maybe break the entire machine.

I want you to take a moment to think about something that happened to you, or someone you know, or you witnessed something where one thing led to another thing and another. It can be good or bad. I want you to think about the Domino Effect for a little bit.

So what do you think? The Domino Effect can happen with or without warning and it can happen fast or slow. If something breaks, another thing can break too (not always). Fix one thing, another thing can become fixable.

The video may just show a bunch of dominoes falling down and a girls happy reaction, but the symbolism is what I wanted to focus on. As you saw, those 15,000 dominoes all fell down. The Domino Effect doesn’t have a definite end. Things can happen over and over until something is completely gone or 100% complete and fulfilled.

So your not alone if you had the Domino Effect happen to you. It’s happened to me numerous times and if someone tells you that it hasn’t happened to them, then they’re lying. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.
