If You Think Your Decisions Aren’t Impacting Others, Think Again
Do you know HOW many people are impacted by your choices? Like really.
Think About It.
I just got off the phone with a client who was making a job decision and she brought up how thankful she was that I had the courage to pursue being a life coach.
She said from that I am now helping her see her brain and live courageously and make hard job decisions confidently.
So from my one decision, I am helping her and her decision which will then impact the lives of almost 100 children this year. 100 children who desperately need her to love them, encourage them, teach them how to do hard things, and achieve what is possible in their lives.
They need her to show them what is impossible for their life. And then make it possible.
What is the residual impact of your decisions? Whose lives are your ripples touching?
Who is impacted by your decisions? Not just your family and friends. Who could be impacted that you don’t even know?
If you decide to get control of your finances and turn down all the cute clothes you want and drinks to drink and food to eat, it doesn’t just impact your wallet.
It impacts the wallet of your parents, spouse, and friends because you wouldn’t have to take from theirs. Now all of you have more money.
They might see that you’re an example of what is possible and decide to do the same thing; now they are impacting all of their circle.
I’m not saying buying clothes, drinks, or food is bad. But I don’t think we realize the impact of those small choices and WHO they impact.
Sometimes it takes courage to turn down the Target run of a shirt, a lamp, and new office supplies. And that’s okay. Not all hard decisions are taking career leaps.
For me, I will never know the 100 children, but my life is touching theirs. My one decision to pursue the uncomfortable and unknown career of being a life coach is impacting hundreds.
What could your decisions be doing?
