July 20: Impact

Every day we wake up is another chance to have an impact on our lives and the lives of others.  With each thought we think, each word we say, and with each action we decide to take, WE CREATE.  Our thoughts, words, and deeds have an impact.  We get to choose if these things will have a positive or a negative impact.


IMPACT is like when we throw a rock into the middle of a lake and watch the ripple effect.  The size of the rock we throw is the level of impact we have.  The larger the rock, the more expansive the impact.

To influence someone enough to have a positive impact on another human being is to add value to that person’s life.

I believe this statement to be true:  “A single sentence, spoken at just the right time, could change someone’s life forever.

As I look back in my life, there are many times that a single sentence, spoken at just the right time, completely altered the trajectory I would live my life according to, from that moment on.  I am so grateful for the wise words of so many, who have impacted and empowered me in positive ways.

What are single sentences or short discussions you have had with someone in your own life that you now realize changed you perception, shifted your perspective, and altered your reality forever, for the better?

Today I will be intentional about influencing others, with the end goal in mind of having a positive, creative impact upon them.  I will say or do something for someone else which will add value to their life.  Instead of condemning or criticizing, I will compliment, encourage, and empower.

Dr. Myles Monroe and the incredible Jim Rohn, describes HOW to best become more influential.  ANYTHING is learnable.  EVERYTHING is a practicable skill.  ANY of us can choose to be EVEN BETTER, every day of our existence.  Check out ANY content from them on YouTube or anywhere else, and prepare to be impacted and altered through their teachings.

Remember:  Mindset matters.  Character counts.  That which we choose to consistently focus on is what EXPANDS in our lives.  WE CREATE our personal realities.
