Your Impact & Significance

All of us influence someone and something.

We may not be politicians or CEO’s of a company, but we are in leadership.

We may not be titles of power but we all have power.

We may not have responsibility to someone but we are responsible to something.

As the old adage states, “No man is an Island.” Even people living the most isolated of lifestyles have influenced someone, are influencing someone or will influence something.

You cannot be human and not have your imprint on the Earth have a rippling effect.

You have the power in you. One that starts with your influence over your own personal accountability to make an impact on the world around you?

In 2 facets, are 2 simple ways that exemplify the power of our influence we have on others in our daily lives:

As Parents and Family Members

As parents, we influence our children. Early child hood experts tell us that a child’s personality is fixed by the age of 5 years old, and in those early preschool years, children lay the foundations for everything they will need to learn for the rest of their lives.

As they watch their parents or the significant adults in their lives, they learn as we teach them values, morals and behaviors they see portrayed in us.

We can influence children in more ways than we sometimes understand.

School and Work Life

As members of a work team or school setting, we influence the people we work and learn with every day, even if we do not have a leadership responsibility over them.

As we interact and work with our peers, we challenge work ethics and habits. We help them learn new ways of doing their jobs and to approach time management in a new way.

Our influence can help create a harmonious and happy working environment but a lack of team focus by any member or members of a workplace can create an environment of hostility and jealousy that reduces productivity and increases job satisfaction

Influence and Responsibility

When we realize the influence we consciously or subconsciously have over other people, we are more willing to accept personal responsibility for our actions and reactions to particular circumstances and situations.

It challenges us to consider others needs and the consequence of our actions and words.

It Starts with You

Never forget however, we are to focus on ourselves first: our needs and individual sustainability. When we have a healthy sense of self and manage ourselves well, we open the door to grow naturally and organically develop the skills of empathy, responsibility to the greater whole and making a fruitful contribution to society.

It is this role we play for each other that makes our lives fulfilling and purposeful. Whether you are the school teacher in Alaska or the CEO of a global company, our impact and influence is equally important. One is no greater than the other and we open ourselves up to the great force within us, we open ourselves up to a greater sense of perception in our personal responsibility and accountability.

And when you walk in your impact with accountability and responsibility, you embrace possibilities!
