Make an Impact
Throughout out our life there's been somebody who has had an impact. It could be a teacher, friend, parent, sibling or an acquaintance that really made a positive impact and helped you at some point. Now it's our turn to make an impact. Because when we make a positive impact on at least one person's life, we'll attract positive situations, positive people and more positive opportunities that will allow us to create the life we want. We attract what we give. So when you come across somebody who may need a hand - take the time to have a positive impact, give from your heart - knowing you will be helping somebody else and creating positive situations in your life. By making a positive impact you automatically create positive energy and good things happen to those with positive energy. When you generate positive energy you attract more positive situations into your life. It's like being a magnet for positive things. But there is a catch, you have to do this because you truly want to help someone in some small or large way. You can't do it because you want to attract positive situations into your life. You have to do it because you want to and because you feel it is what you should do or that it's the right thing to do. It's not about people helping you, it's about you making a positive impact. If you truly feel that you have been helping people, that you've been making an impact and you haven't been attracting positive situations, or positive events, or positive people into our life, then take a closer look at your intentions. You don't have to make a big impact. Make a small impact and build from there. You don't have to give somebody money, especially if you can't afford it. Give your time, your understanding, your knowledge. Give somebody a hand with their shopping bags. Open a door for somebody who has their hands full. Listen to someone who wants to talk to you. Share your time. Share your wisdom. Be pleasant to a stranger. Offer some kind words to a colleague or family member. Make a positive impact by committing to help somebody every day. Force yourself to look for the positive aspect of every situation. By doing what I suggest you'll immediately start to feel better about your life and your situation.
Then you'll begin to see new opportunities come your way. You'll meet new people and go to new events. Pay attention to them; they'll help you improve your life. Don't assume that you know whether they will or won't work for you because you don't. Everything you come across and every person you meet can help you but only if you are open minded and willing to explore the opportunity. You have to be consistent and that means continuing to make an impact, continuing to help and make a difference everyday no matter what mood you're in. Force yourself if you have to so that you make a positive impact in some way - everyday!
Try it for a full year and see how your life changes or improves.
