This is the third part of the 3-series article about stories that entrepreneurs tell themselves every day. Got to Part 1, Part 2.

In the previous parts of the article, you were introduced to three of four mind hacks for entrepreneurs.

Here is the last one.

4. Theory of chaos

Finally, I’d like to share with you the true meaning of the Chaos Theory.

Some call it the ‘Butterfly effect’ because it is based on the idea that a single flap of butterfly wings would be enough to raise a storm at the other side of the globe.

So, let’s understand what the Theory of Chaos is, how you can easily find it in your day-to-day, and what it means when you put your entire life in perspective.

This theory was first studied in the context of weather forecasts. Now, I won’t pretend to be a theoretical expert, so please pardon my lack of scientific knowledge.

The most important fact is this: a minimal, tiny and minuscule difference in the calculation in weather forecast leads to two radically opposite scenarios: a beautiful sunny day or a terrible storm.

And why does this happen?

the tiniest of the events causes a chain of reactions in hundreds, thousands, and millions of other events that eventually lead to something huge

You see, in life, we are all connected, even if you don’t think so. Everything you do in life, and everyone with whom you interact play a role in a big plan for your life.

Every single event is connected.

For example, your parents gave you piece of advice which you didn’t understand at first. But later, you develop the right mindset throughout your life to understand it and achieve what others can’t.

And this might happen 20, 30, 40 years later.

This is the reason why some of the best and the worst things on earth happen. Everything and everyone has a starting point. And all we make from the starting point leads us to where we are today.

Now, think about your life. I know it is not an easy task, but can you think back when you were a child and see how the decisions you made, the advice you got, and the mistakes you did have all led you to where you are today?

Can you now understand how this phenomenon will also impact your future?

Some day later, when you are 80, 90 years old, you will look back at your life. And you will be able to connect all the dots.

And the question is:

will you have achieved what you originally desired? Do the dots connect to something you truly believe was your life purpose?

Final story

I wouldn’t dare to tell you to follow these stories, to trust them blindly, or to assume that you don’t know some of them already.

All I wanted was to share with you what I deeply believe can be the turning tide in anyone’s life that is on the cusp of taking action.

But above anything else, I would like you to think thoroughly about what we’ve talked here. I’m sure that by now you already know what you want to do, so it is time to take action.

The purpose of this message is not to teach you what to do or pretend to give you some quick schemes and shortcuts.

My purpose was to share with you what are the stories that – I’d humbly say – most of the entrepreneurs, innovators, creators, and game changers have been telling themselves for centuries.

It’s not like we are aware that right now I’m applying the Theory of Chaos in my own life, or that tomorrow evening I will be practicing internal locus of control.

That’s not the point.

If anything, this article is here to help you solidifying the most crucial and core values that you already have, so that from this moment on you have a clear understanding that everything you do matters.

And if you already know what you want to have accomplished, when you look back at the end of your life, do yourself a favor and take action today.

Because life’s really too short.
