The Impact We Make


After reflecting within myself into all areas of my life, I thought on what I need, what I want and what I can do to make change happen.  In that moment, I thought of all those people whom I have touched and the impact I made in promoting and enhancing their personal change and conquering their challenges.

This is where my grand “AHA” moment occurred. I am here to serve and guide others. The darkness that they encounter turns into a well lit path. And there it is.  Simply, I believe in my capabilities to bring out the fire and implement change in those who want to change.

We all have great talent within ourselves and yet many of us under-estimate our ability. Usually this is because we look at the perception of others and if we feel that this is unfavourable we beat ourselves up. Other people’s opinion is their business, not ours. We have the ability to choose.

Our own self image is so much more important. Believe in yourself! All thoughts start in the mind and to truly accomplish your dreams you have to picture yourself with the life, career, and home you desire! You choose! Confidence is key and no matter how many winding roads your path leads you through, you need to see and believe in your outcome.

Here are some simple steps on having a positive impact on others:

  1. Be Positive and Joyful – We have the ability to see our day filled with options or one filled withtasks.
  2. Be friendly to everyone – A kind word goes a very long way. Add a smile and you have made someone’s day.
  3. Be Yourself – Speak from your heart. Mean what you say; people can tell when you are faking.
  4. Volunteer – It gives great joy to assist others in need. You fill your bucket and theirs when you reach out.

And along the way you will touch many others and they will feed off your honesty, truth, caring and your desire to be the best person you choose to be.

A few years ago, I went on a trip with my daughter and while away I met a woman much older than I that educated me on strength. I knew her for three days and yet her impact on my life is forever.  Three days with a stranger who I have never seen or spoken with since that trip and yet I remember every conversation in great detail. I am sure that this lovely woman has no idea of the depths of our discussions and yet she will never be forgotten.

I make an impact on the lives of others and you do too. The question is, “what impact are you making?”

    I agree Anna,

    Confidence is KEY! WIthout it, one is floundering and subject to other’s opinions and judgements. We need to be self aware to truly be successful.
