A virtuous cycle is a beneficial cycle of events or incidents, each having a positive effect on the next. Favorable results reinforce and perpetuate a virtuous cycle and are governed by strategically placed feedback loops. A virtuous cycle has favorable results, while a vicious circle has detrimental results.
Characteristics of Virtuous Cycles
The foundation of a virtuous cycle is virtuous values and deeds. “Good comes from good.” Every creation starts with a thought or idea and initiates a cycle. The intention of the creator encrypts the results at inception. The purer the intention, the stronger the potential for a positive image to spiral successfully throughout the ecosystem, including social media and other networks. The highly interactive and positive nature of a virtuous cycle breeds purposeful ideas, concepts, innovations and new products which in turn attract newly motivated customers, collaborators, employees and partners. These individuals often find themselves enthusiastically united in the emerging activities that spiral out from these thoughts, ideas and concepts.
