Have you ever heard of the Vector Principle? It is based upon 360 degrees in a compass where North is 0 or 360, East is 90, South is 180 and West is 270. Airport runways are named according to their directional orientation, like "Runway 18" pointing south (180 degrees).
So what does that have to do with making small positive changes in relationships?
A small heading, or directional, change of say 3 degrees may not appear like much at the start. But following those headings will lead to a huge difference over time and distance.
The picture at right has an airplane bound for Paris making a slight heading deviation of several degrees and ending up in Egypt. Quite a difference!
The vector principle gives hope to those facing marriage and relationship challenges. Even small positive changes now, sustained over time, will lead to a much different outcome than no changes at all.
Our RINGS Experience classes are based upon making small, manageable changes that, over time, make a huge difference. For Ronda and me, the RINGS Chat on a daily basis has us at a much healthier place than if we had never made this small change years ago.
What small positive changes could you make today?
Even small positive changes now, sustained over time, will lead to a much different outcome than no changes at all.
